Princess Charlotte tops 'people who matter list' – beating mum Kate and great-grandmother The Queen

Ainhoa Barcelona

She's only eight months old but Princess Charlotte has topped The Tatler List, which is described by the magazine as "the people who really matter". While the public know very little about the royal baby, apart from the fact that she is fourth-in-line to the throne, Charlotte has managed to pip all other 619 candidates to the post.

The Princess has beat her mum the Duchess of Cambridge, who is ranked second, her dad Prince William, who is placed third, and her brother Prince George, who is fourth, to the top spot.

What is perhaps most surprising is that little Charlotte scored higher than the Queen, who holds fifth place.

The Cambridges secured the top four spots in the "people who really matter" list

Described as "everyone's favourite monarch" in the list, Her Majesty, who is the nation's longest-reigning monarch, will turn 90 in April.

The other top 10 spots are filled by members of the aristocracy and author Jilly Cooper, who wrote Wicked! and Riders and is described as "giving more joy to boarding-school girls than anyone else in the country".

The Queen was ranked the fifth most valued person

Princess Diana's niece Lady Kitty Spencer is ranked sixth after the Queen, followed by sisters Lady Violet Manners, Lady Alice Manners and Lady Eliza Manners. The three siblings are the Duke and Duchess of Rutland's eldest children, who count Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire as their ancestral home.

Other names to appear in the top 20 include Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne, who is in the running for Best Actor again this year, Oscar nominee and Oxford-educated Felicity Jones, and Sir Richard Branson's daughter Holly.

Prince Harry also appeared on the list in spot number 17

Prince Harry has also sneaked onto the list in seventeenth place, followed by Boris Johnson in eighteenth.

Tatler, the high-society magazine, explained that it does not reveal what factors are taken into account when ranking people, but that readers can share their opinions and they will be considered.
