Tatler reveals the new power networkers include Princess Beatrice’s ex Dave Clark

Tatler has unveiled the newest ‘power networkers’ on the elite social scene.

The male socialites are described as ‘charming, well connected and the life of the party’, and move in the same circles as politicians, aristocrats and royals. 

Among them is Archie Manners, who is 15th in line to Baron Manners – a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom created in 1807 for the lawyer and politician Sir Thomas Manners-Sutton.

Archie has performed magic tricks for the likes of the Duke  of Cambridge and Theresa May, and shmoozes with Alexander Warren, the son of the Queen’s racing manager, John Warren.

Elsewhere an unlikely celebrity choice is Spencer Matthews, who by his brother James’ marriage to Pippa Middleton, is related to the Cambridges.
