Prince Harry & Meghan Markle made headlines worldwide this year when they did a tell-all interview with Oprah on the Royal Family.

Since the interview, the couple has been one of the most talked-about topics of 2021, leading to them being named in Time’s ‘World’s Most Influential People’ list.

In a statement with the announcement, the magazine said, ‘Prince Harry and Meghan are among the 100 most influential people of 2021.’

“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,” writes Jose Andres.
