Vogue says the Duchess of Sussex, who married Prince Harry on 19 May, "captured the public imagination like no other this year" and has become one of the most recognisable women in the world.It adds that her influence "stretches far beyond the ceaseless coverage of her style - as a bi-racial campaigning feminist from America, she is helping to forge a new 21st Century identity for the monarchy".
The list also includes (clockwise from top left): Amal Clooney, JK Rowling, Barnoness Hale and Letitia Wright
Ms Davidson, who became leader of the Scottish Conservatives in 2011, is described by Vogue as a "beacon, thanks to her relatable personality and progressive ideas" among a "sea of old-guard Tories".The only politician on the list - which is not ranked in any order - the publication also cites Ms Davidson's "spectacular gains" for her party in the last Scottish elections as a reason for the inclusion.
