Amal Clooney Named Most Powerful Woman In London

Amal Clooney now has another title to add to her impressive resume.

The newlywed lawyer placed fourth on The London Evening Standard's list of most powerful people in London, and was the first woman on the list.

Clooney ranked higher than Victoria Beckham, who placed ninth, Prince Harry, who placed seventh, and even British Prime Minister David Cameron, who placed 10th.

While some might suspect Clooney's high ranking has to do with her recent marriage to George Clooney, the Evening Standard says it was because of her work helping Greece win back ancient sculptures that are currently being kept in London's British Museum.

We're surprised that Kate Middleton isn't on this year's list. Her brother-in-law, Prince Harry may have made it because of his work with the Invictus Games, a sporting event for injured soldiers, according to an editorial in the Evening Standard.
