TIME has released its prestigious list of “Most Influential People 2021” and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made the cut.
The announcement comes as no surprise to us because they were always considered a power couple in our eyes.
But this takes them to a whole other level.
Appearing in the top 100, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a statement with their cover; Meghan in a white buttoned-up jumpsuit, with Harry stood to the side of her in a deep, forest green shirt with matching trousers.
The couple also posed for another follow-up picture, with the green theme continuing throughout both shots.
Meghan wore a beautiful olive-toned turtle neck with matching trousers while Harry opted for a slightly lighter green colored 2-piece suit with a slightly off-white shirt.
Fans have been commending both shots online, with one even claiming that they were “flexing” which is just another way of saying they are looking pretty goddamn impressive.
We wholeheartedly agree!
In the brief profile written by José Andrés, he praised the pair for being a “voice to the voiceless through media production.”
“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.
“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,” he also added.
Harry and Meghan are the only royals to make it onto TIME‘s elite list.
President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were also listed alongside other notable figures such as Britney Spears, Billie Eilish, and Chloé Zhao, all of whom received praise for their positive influence on the world.
Congratulations to the couple as well as everyone else that made it onto the coveted list this year!
