"ICONS" in 2021 TIME 100 Most Influential People List - Meghan Markle & Prince Harry make the list

Having participated as presenters in the first ever televised version of the TIME 100 Most Influential people T.V. event in 2020, this year Meghan and Harry are included in the 2021 TIME 100 list,  in the ICONS category.

Meghan and Harry are introduced in the TIME 100 magazine article by their charitable partner and friend Chef Jose Andres, co-founder of World Central Kitchen. Chef Andres speaks of Meghan and Harry's sense of urgency that drives them as humanitarians and activists.

Chef Andres writes: "Meghan and Harry turn compassion into boots on the ground through their Archewell Foundation. They give voice to the voiceless through media production. Hand in hand with non profit 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."

Jose goes on: "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."

The article concludes with the following "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."
