Surprise from California. From Santa Bárbara, more specifically. Because prince harry and meghan markle they have reappeared together. And they have done it in a big way, no less than on the cover of ‘Time’ magazine, with a very influential pose and with words of José Andrés flattering the couple. The publication has created its traditional annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. And yes, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are among them. So they have had no problem posing for photographer Pari Dukovic since their californian mansion.
Coincidences of life, the cover and the news that they have been included in this reference list has come to light the same day that Prince Harry turns 37, for which he has received public congratulations from much of the royal family. But even more coincidental is that it was released on the same day that it had been announced. Kate Middleton’s back to work after his very long vacation. So the comments of the most suspicious have not taken long to appear in networks and forums, who see it as a Sussex maneuver to grab all the limelight.
Be that as it may, the truth is that the cover has not left anyone indifferent. As soon as it is published, in the UK it has turned aroundHim, and it is the second comeback of Meghan Markle after giving birth to her daughter Lilibet Diana on June 4, and it’s the first time we’ve seen the dukes together in a long time. The photographs are intended to give an image of unity and strength, although there are those who already point out the abusive use of Photoshop on the faces of the couple, who appears looking at the camera with great confidence.
The truth is that the image of both, both on the cover and inside, is surprising. Or at least Meghan’s, to which we hadn’t seen each other since his 40th birthday, when he took advantage of his age to launch a solidarity initiative, asking 40 of her friends to donate 40 minutes of their time to help women in job search. And how on that occasion, everything is taken care of down to the smallest detail for these photos: from Meghan’s wardrobe – a white jumpsuit for one, pants and a sweater for another – to the large volume of her hair or the jewels chosen for the pose.
Prince Harry and Meghan Are on the 2021 TIME100 List | TIME

It is common for a celebrity to write a few words for ‘Time’ about the person who is part of this list of the most influential in the world made by the publication, especially if he has a close relationship with the chosen one. And this time, it was the chef José Andrés, recognized with the Princess of Asturias Award for Concord, the one who wanted to talk about them and their work: “In a world where everyone has an opinion about people they don’t know, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have compassion for people they don’t know. They do not have an opinion. They continue their fight“.
“Taking action is not the easy choice for young dukes who have been blessed by birth and talent, and burned by fame, “continues the cook, with whom the Sussexes have collaborated for their World Central Kitchen foundation. “It would be much safer for them to enjoy their good fortune and remain silent. But that’s not what Harry and Meghan do, or who they are,” he says.
It is not the first time that Meghan and Harry, together or separately, appear in this list of ‘Time’ influencers. Elton John was in charge of writing about his good friend the Duke of Sussex when he was part of it alone, while when Meghan Markle first entered the list, it was the actriz Priyanka Chopra who dedicated a few words to her friend.
