Prince Harry, Meghan make Time's 100 most influential people

Time hailed Harry and Meghan for taking 'risks to help communities in need' as well as how 'they run towards the struggle'.

British royals, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been listed in Time Magazine's top 100 most influential people.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made the list in the ‘icons’ section, alongside the Britney Spears, Tennis star, Naomi Osaka, music legend Dolly Parton, amongst others.

"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. It would be much safer to enjoy their good fortune and stay silent.

"‘That’s not what Harry and Meghan do, or who they are. They turn compassion into boots on the ground through their Archewell Foundation. They give voice to the voiceless through media production.

"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 U.S., 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," a piece written by Jose Andres read.
