London - Prince William has been named Britain's Most Influential Man.
The 29-year-old search and rescue pilot - who married Kate Middleton in April - topped a survey of over 7000 readers of website AskMen to find whose achievements, profile and status had the biggest impact on UK life over the last 12 months, with French DJ David Guetta and soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo placed second and third respectively.
Former newspaper editor-turned-talk show host Piers Morgan came fourth, while Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg rounded out the top five.
William's brother Prince Harry also made the list, placed 22nd, while UK Prime Minister David Cameron scraped in at number 49.
Drew Lubega, UK Editor of AskMen.com, said: "This was the year that our readers believe Prince William finally came of age, making the royal family accessible and cool, in a way that the previous generation failed. He's a hard worker determined to use his global profile for good causes.
"Everyone who makes the Top 49 have experienced an incredible year - shaping the opinions and tastes of men across the UK. Making the list is an achievement, but against the toughest economic background for almost a century, it's incredibly telling that our Prime Minister wasn't considered more influential by young Brits."
Also featured in the top 10 are late Apple founder Steve Jobs in sixth place, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson in seventh, troubled actor Charlie Sheen, who came eighth and tycoon Lord Alan Sugar and US President Barack Obama in ninth and tenth place respectively.
