Time magazine annually honours those it deems to be the most influential in the world and the Middleton sisters have been featured as “avatars of aspiration”. 

Pippa, the US mag says, “is globally recognised, especially from behind,” referring to the headline grabbing figure-hugging dress she wore to her sister’s wedding. 

While the glamorous sisters are included, PM David Cameron has been dropped from this year’s list, which also includes singers Adele and Rihanna, actress Claire Danes, footballer Lionel Messi, and US president Barrack Obama.
