Two royal fans who have been camping outside St James's Palace yesterday afternoon told Daybreak that they were willing to spend hours in the rain because they love the royal family.
Draped in a Union flag one royal watcher said she often came to London for royal events: "I love William and Kate and Harry and I was at St Mary's for Prince George being born and I felt I had to come here."
Another royal fan added: "I just love the royal family."
The Evening Standard's 'Power 1000' is drawn from all sectors and walks of London life - from finance, to theatre, technology, media and politics - the list is selected by a panel of London Evening Standard reporters and critics.
London is a magnet for the rest of world and our newest power resident, Prince George, is a timely symbol.
He is our greatest tourist attraction, along with his great grandmother, which is why he has been chosen this year as the first among Londoners.
Prince George has been crowned the most influential person in London, in the Evening Standard's annual 'Power 1000 list'. The eight-week-old son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was chosen because he has become the capital's biggest global ambassador.
The young Prince eclipsed Mayor Boris Johnson who topped the list of the most influential people in the capital a year ago.
