Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Make It To Time's List Of The 100 Most Influential People
Time has revealed its list of the 100 most influential people of 2021, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made it to this year's list. The couple is also featured on the cover of the publication in a photo taken by Pari Dukovic. This also marks the first time the Sussexes have posed together for a magazine cover shoot. The photo shows the couple, who are titled the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, dressed casually with a background of trees.

The Time's 100 list also includes singers Billie Eilish and Britney Spears, and Olympic gymnast Simone Biles.

Harry and Meghan, who quit their royal duties last year and moved from Britain to California, are featured on one of seven worldwide covers highlighting the honorees.The list is broken into six categories: Icons, Pioneers, Titans, Artists, Leaders, Innovators. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made the list in the "Icons" category.

Harry and Meghan left Britain in 2020 to build an independent life, launching their Archewell Foundation as well as cutting lucrative deals for producing TV shows and a podcast.

"Springing into action is not the easy choice for a young duke and duchess who have been blessed through birth and talent, and burned by fame," José Andrés, founder of World Central Kitchen, writes about the couple. The non-profit, which has now delivered more than 500,000 hot meals to earthquake-stricken Haiti, is an official partner of Harry and Meghan's Archewell Foundation.


Time magazine editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal said the 100 list features "extraordinary leaders from around the world working to build a better future" who "in a year of crisis have leaped into the fray".

The 100 list, which is not ranked, included 54 women. It also comprised political figures such as US President Joe Biden, US Vice President Kamala Harris and former US President Donald Trump.
