September 16, (THEWILL) – Time magazine has published its annual list of the 100 most influential people, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle gracing the cover of the magazine’s print issue.
The 2021 list also includes US President Joe Biden, legendary country music idol Dolly Parton, and several global icons.
With the list splashed across six categories—Icons, Pioneers, Titans, Artists, Leaders, Innovators—the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made the list in the “Icons” category.
In a profile about Harry and Meghan, who moved to the U.S. last year after stepping down from their official roles in the royal family, chef Jose Andres spoke about the drive that motivates both of them.
“When Prince Harry was Apache helicopter gunner in the British military in 2013, he was conducting a now-viral interview when a loud bang rang out. In one swift motion, he stands up, rips off his microphone and runs toward the action,” Andres wrote.
“That same sense of urgency drives Meghan, now the Duchess of Sussex, who has long been an active humanitarian and a powerful advocate for women and girls around the world,” Andres continued.
Since finding each other, getting married and moving to California, the couple have founded Archewell, which has a production, audio and charity leg. “They don’t just opine. They run toward the struggle,” Andres added.
