Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are on the cover of TIME’s most influential people list

What a year for these two!


Ever since Harry and Meghan tied the knot, the world went crazy about them. The stir they caused when they decided to step down from their royal duties made their lives even more appealing to the media and their names could be seen in a huge number of headlines. When they gave Oprah an interview in which they revealed a lot of things that made the Royals angry, Harry and Meghan’s relationship with the family became a hot topic.

During the interview, Meghan spoke of her mental struggles and the Firm’s inability to provide help. According to her, they cared more about the image of the family than her suicidal thoughts. Among the rest, the couple revealed that a senior royal was questioning the potential color of then-unborn son Archie’s skin.

The Queen issued a formal statement saying that the Palace would settle any issues privately and that Harry and Meghan will always be a much loved members of the family.

Well, the Sussexes seems to have settle in California pretty well. They have their hands full raising their two children and being involved in a number of charities. The couple also made contracts with both Netflix and Spotify and are quite busy running their Archewell foundation.

For all they have accomplished during the last couple of years, TIME magazine placed them on their list of 100 most influential people. And not only that, they are gracing the cover of it.

Other people who got on the list are U.S. gymnast Simone Biles, Apple CEO Tim Cook, President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

The short profile about the couple written by chef Jose Andres praised them for their work with the Archewell Foundation.

“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,” Andres wrote. “It would be much safer to enjoy their good fortune and stay silent.

“Hand in hand with nonprofit partners, they take risks to help communities in need – offering mental-health support to Black women and girls in the US, and feeding those affected by natural disasters in India and the Caribbean.

“In a world where everyone has an opinion about people they don’t know, the Duke and Duchess have compassion for the people they don’t know. They don’t just opine. They run toward the struggle.”

They look happy and accomplished.
