Harry and Meghan Appear on Time '100 Most Influential' List

作者:Bryan Lynn 发布日期:9-18-2021

Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan were pictured on the cover of Time magazine's yearly 100 most influential people in the world issue.

The list also includes singers Billie Eilish and Britney Spears and gymnast Simone Biles.

Harry and Meghan left their royal duties last year and moved to California from London. They launched the nonprofit Archewell Foundation and made agreements to produce TV shows.

They are shown on one of seven covers showing the most influential people. The photo shows the Duke and Duchess of Sussex dressed casually.

Chef Jose Andres has partnered with the Archewell Foundation. He runs the nonprofit World Kitchen. He wrote in the publication that it would have been safer for Harry and Meghan to stay silent.

"That's not what Harry and Meghan do or who they are…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," Andres wrote.

Time magazine editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal said the 100 list names "leaders from around the world working to build a better future." The list includes 54 women and politicians such as U.S. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. It also includes former President Donald Trump.

Britney Spears made the list for the first time. She has struggled to be removed from a court-ordered guardianship agreement, or conservatorship, that controlled her life and business for 13 years.

Reality TV star Paris Hilton wrote the introduction to Spears. "So, we stand by and hear and root for her as she turns pain into purpose, her unwavering spirit stronger than ever," she wrote.

Seven-time Grammy winner Billie Eilish also was shown on one of the covers. She was introduced by rap music star Megan Thee Stallion, who wrote that Eilish stands up for herself and "for women everywhere."
