Take a look at the below list of Top 10 Most Powerful Kids in The World 2017. Ah, to be a kid again. It must be nice to have so much money and power and not having to have done anything, or practically anything to get it. With the exceptions of just a couple, the kids on this list got there for doing absolutely nothing besides being born in the right place to the right parents. The truth is, however, they’ve still got the money and power, so who are we to judge? Either way, you have to figure that by having so much money and power at such a young age, we will all be hearing about all of these for a very long time in the future.
List of Top 10 Most Powerful Kids in The World 2017
10. Phoebe Adele Gates
If you want power, influence, not to mention a lot of money, it always helps to have a father who is the wealthiest man in the world. That’s not to say that Bill Gates didn’t have some help, particularly in the form of his daughter’s mother, and his wife, Melinda, but little Phoebe does have a lot going for her. It’s been reported that when she inherits her wealth it will be an estimated $11 million, so if that doesn’t give a girl a head start on her journey to power, we don’t know what will.
9. Quvenzhané Wallis
Another way to become powerful is with talent, which Quvenzhané Wallis happens to have in spades. Wallis is not only a singer and actress but at the tender age of nine, she became the youngest actress to ever be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress in the Leading Role for portraying Hushpuppy in the film Beasts of the Southern Wild in 2014. She was also nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical for her work in the 2014 remake of Annie.
8. Kelly Xu
To become a champion at Augusta National is a goal that not too many people can even hope to dream of, but for Kelly Xu, she accomplished the feat at the tender age of nine, to become the youngest to ever be crowned. It was there that she won the inaugural Drive, Chip and Putt Championship for the Girls 9-and-under Division. Tiger Woods, eat your heart out.
7. Leonor, Princess of Asturias
We’re not sure how close you are to the principality of Asturias, but if you find yourself there, you can be sure that you will feel the influence of little Leonor, Princess of Asturias, who happens to be second in line to the Spanish crown, only behind her father, Felipe, Prince of Asturias. In the meantime, she will have to settle for carrying more than five royal titles, a big job for anyone so young.
6. Evan of EvanTubeHD
If there’s anything that can cause someone to be a powerful media star, it’s the Internet, especially when you hit on a platform like YouTube, and when you have a couple of tech-savvy parents such as Evan. Seven-year-old Evan has racked up an astonishing 443 million views on his channel where he reviews primarily toys and video games. In the meantime, however, he has become the 20th highest paid YouTube star, which he has used to earn an annual income of approximately $1.32 million. He is one of the Top 10 Most Powerful Kids in The World 2017.
5. Benji Brin
In terms of being born into your power, there are probably few that are luckier than Benji Brin, the son of Sergy Brin, the co-founder of Google and Anne Wojcicki, the founder of 23andMe. Little Benji is no doubt headed for an unconventional life since after he was born the family’s close friends held a baby shower for him where they were required to attend wearing diapers and footie pajamas. And if that’s not unusual enough for you, consider this: there are no actual photos of the child, only a rendering based on his parents created by using their photos at MakeMeBabies.com. Also, within days of his birth, Benji had his own website, benjibrin.com.
4. Alexis Martin
If smarts trump looks in your book, you might want to start forming a line behind 6-year-old Alexis Martin, who is a child prodigy in Queen Creek, Arizona. Martin earned a membership in the super-smart organization, Menza, when she scored the maximum 160 points on a test that got her into the group. It should also be noted that the 160 score equaled Stephen Hawking, Albert Einstein, and Nicolaus Copernicus. Martin, who just started kindergarten, reads at a 5th-grade level and even taught herself Spanish with an iPad.
3. Blue Ivy Carter
Blue Ivy Carter is the daughter of two mega stars, Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z. Heck, for lack of any other benefits to such a distinction, little Blue Ivy–a name her parents tried to trademark, unsuccessfully–she has appeared in two music videos.
2. Margaret Laura “Mila” Hager
Margaret Laura ‘Mila’ Hager is the daughter of Jenna Bush Hager and her husband , Henry Hagar. And if the mother’s name isn’t familiar to you, you will want to know that she is the daughter of former President George W. Bush. And if genealogy isn’t your strong suit, that makes Margaret the granddaughter of the former President as well as the great-granddaughter of earlier former President, George HW Bush.
1. Prince George of Cambridge
If this list doesn’t have enough royalty for you, don’t worry, since the number one listee is none other than the son of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George of Cambridge. And if having such an impressive pedigree as young George has isn’t enough for you, it is worthy of note that just shy of his first birthday, George enjoyed his first royal trip, a 19-day tour of Australia and New Zealand.
These are the Top 10 Most Powerful Kids in The World 2017. There will no doubt be considerable arguments about those on this list. After all, there are those who say that inherited power is not legitimate, but for our tastes, power is power, regardless of how you get it. That said, these kids have got it.
