The Duke and Duchess of Sussex entered the top 100 most influential people in the world in 2021. Their photo will appear on the cover of the latest issue of Time magazine.
The photo, which shows Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the garden of their estate near Montecito, California, has been published on the website of the publication and will become the cover of the new issue.
In an accompanying article written by Prince Harry's friend, renowned restaurateur Jose Andres, it is said: “In a world where everyone voices opinions about people they don't know, Harry and Meghan have compassion for strangers. They don't just talk, they are always ready to help. “
Andres also describes a famous episode from the military biography of Prince Harry, when he had to interrupt an interview and take off in a helicopter gunship to repel an attack by militants on a NATO base in Afghanistan.
He believes that a sense of duty and responsibility for others is also motivated by Meghan Markle, who “has a long history of humanitarian work and the protection of women and girls around the world.”
Jose Andrés is a renowned restaurateur, chef and founder of World Central Kitchen, a charity supported by the Archewell Foundation, created by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in 2020.
The text makes no mention of Prince Harry and his wife's strained relationship with the royal family.
Earlier it was reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex requested an audience with Queen Elizabeth II in order to maintain their status and increase income in the United States. Royal family experts believe this meeting could determine the couple's future success in America.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle resigned as members of the British royal family on April 1, 2020. In order to move to the United States, work and do business, they renounced Your Royal Highness, government funding, and the Sussex Royal brand. By signing an agreement with the video service Netflix, the couple achieved financial independence from the royal family.
