We all know those royals have a huge sway when it comes to everything from nude heels to Vegas pool parties so it's no surprise to hear the latest addition to the family is getting in on the act too. Okay, so Prince George Of Cambridge may only be a teeny baby, but he's already been crowned the most influential person in London. Not bad for an eight-week-old.

Evening Standard has just released its annual Power 1000 list and while George has bagged the number 1 spot, his parents also make an appearance. Kate Middleton and Prince William land on the list at number 7 and 11 respectively and Queenie is in at 16.

The son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was chosen because he has become the capital’s biggest global ambassador, appaz. The young Prince eclipsed even Boris Johnson who topped last year's list. To be fair, within a week of his birth, George had already become a style icon like his mother. The printed cotton muslin swaddle wrapped around the tiny HRH as he was first introduced to the world on the steps of the Lindo wing sparked a stampede.

As for new entries to the list, Andy Murray and Harry Styles have made the grade, naturallement, with 19-year-old Hazza being the youngest person after little George to make the top 20. Cara Delevingne has also nailed her first appearance thanks to her domination of the catwalks, her huge social media following and presumably those mighty impressive eyebrows.
The Power 1000 celebrates those who make London such a creative and cultural powerhouse and includes people in finance, theatre, technology, media and politics selected by a panel of Evening Standard reporters and critics. 'London is a magnet for the rest of world and our newest power resident, Prince George, is a timely symbol. He is our greatest tourist attraction, along with his great grandmother, which is why he has been chosen this year as the first among Londoners,' says the newspaper's editor Sarah Sands.
