The Sussexes have been outranked by the Cambridges – and Harper Beckham – in a who’s who of the most “socially significant” people.

Society bible Tatler is publishing its debut Social Power Index.

Seven-year-old Harper is fourth on the magazine’s list, placed higher than her celebrity parents and a host of other big names.

She is described as a “front-row fixture” who “jets between Los Angeles, London and the Cotswolds”.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge take first place, with Tatler describing an invitation to their home as the “ultimate social trophy”.

Actor Idris Elba and wife Sabrina Dhowre are second.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are outside the top 10, which is not numbered, but they are “crowned the king and queen of global glamour”.

Those who make the top 10 include ex-England footballer Jamie Redknapp, BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg, Little Mix star Perrie Edwards and her footballer boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who “embody modern glamour and success”, and the Marquess and Marchioness of Cholmondeley.

David and Victoria Beckham are outside the top 10, along with comedian Jack Whitehall, Brooklyn Beckham and girlfriend Hana Cross, Sir Mick Jagger,  Sir Elton John and David Furnish, Dame Joan Collins and Kate Moss and her boyfriend Count Nikolai von Bismarck.

The supermodel’s daughter Lila is also on the list, alongside Jeremy Clarkson, James Blunt and his wife Sofia Wellesley, and the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall.
