Prince Harry has beaten off competition from One Direction's Harry Styles to come in second on Tatler's list of "most wanted" party guests.

The society magazine ranked American ambassador the UK Matthew Barzun and his wife Brooke as the number one most coveted party guests, but Harry and his current squeeze Cressida Bonas were second.

David Cameron's poor performance in the polls is doing nothing to diminish his value as a party goer - the Prime Minister and his wife Samantha were third.

Harry Styles takes tenth place for being able to "charm the pants off every guest", despite his alleged upbringing in the least "musically sophisticated" part of the UK.

The rest of the top 10 features Carphone Warehouse founder Sir Charles Dunstone and his wife Lady Dunstone, Education Secretary Michael Gove and his wife Sarah Vine, the Countess (Jemma Kidd) and Earl of Mornington, and Roman Abramovich's girlfriend Dasha Zhukova.
