She is ranked just one place below a Dame, a Lord and model Cara Delevingne.

Placing the 35-year-old Markle in fourth place, the magazine says that party guests should expect to talk “international philanthropy” with the “smoking hot”, “clean-eating” Suits star.

Harry, 32, described as an “all-round good-time guy” who “likes to let his hair down” is at number 22, with Tatler saying that he is “slowing down(ish)”, preferring “shooting parties to doing shots” at posh Chelsea pubs.

Middleton and her hedge fund boss fiance James Matthews, who like to “arrive at parties in classic cars” are at number 32 in this year’s 100 Most Invited List.

Former Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha, “both excellent dinner-guest material”, are in sixth place.

Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage is ninth and ex-Top Gear star turned The Grand Tour presenter Jeremy Clarkson is 11th.

Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, who are “both impressive on the dancefloor”, are at number 42, while Kate Moss’s 19-year-old half-sister Lottie Moss is at 44.

The Beckhams, at 92, miss out on the top 50, alongside novelist Jilly Cooper (81), model Georgia May Jagger (72), singer James Blunt (60) and model Daisy Lowe (59).

Dame Natalie Massenet, who founded Net a Porter and is chair of the British Fashion Council, and her entrepreneur partner Erik Torstensson, top the list, with the Delevingne family in second place, followed by Lord Settrington.
