Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan on Wednesday graced the cover of Time magazine’s annual 100 most influential people in the world issue. The 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 photo shows the couple, who are titled the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, dressed casually with a background of trees. “It’s not what Harry and Meghan do, or who they are … In a world where everyone has an opinion of people they don’t know, the Duke and Duchess have compassion for people they don’t know. They don’t know him. It just opinion. They run towards the fight,” Chef Jose Andres, who funded the Archewell Foundation partner, nonprofit World Kitchen wrote. 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”.
