TIME is calling the shots on the 100 most influential people in the world again. The site released their annual list of biggest movers and shakers, from artists and leaders to pioneers, titans, and icons, and whodathunk ... Kate Middleton made the cut as an "icon." Well, it's an obvious choice. We're all well aware that the Duchess is admired around the globe for her sense of style, regal demeanor, lovely disposition, and the most basic fact that she's Prince William's wife. But as iconic as she has become in such a short period of time, is she really influential ... yet?
Let's not kid ourselves. At this point, she's only an icon because of the position she's in. Not necessarily because of who she is.
