The Dukes of Sussex occupy the cover of Time magazine in the issue dedicated to the most influential people of 2021. As is often the case with everything that surrounds them, this new recognition is giving a lot to talk about: from the reasons why they would or would not deserve to receive it, to the cover pose with their obvious excessive photo retouching work, something that would not be very in tune with the values that always promote the Prince Harry (37) and Meghan Markle (40).
The magazine published this Wednesday the image of the cover in which they appear with soft, smooth skin and without any type of imperfections and, in Harry’s case, suspiciously thicker hair. As you may already be imagining, this has not been a source of criticism, but also meme meat, so it is possible that right now the marriage is already thinking of giving an answer to all these criticisms.
Some tweeters also put the post back and a half, not only because of the excess of photoshop, but because of the chosen pose. “Who approved this shot ?! Is he standing? Is he sitting? Is he holding onto your shoulder to keep from falling? Why do you make such adorable people look like this?” Asked one Twitter user. “It’s like I’m huddled behind her,” another joked, while another girl compared the photo to the poster for the movie ‘Brothers by balls’.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made the Time 100 list for their charity work with their Archwell Foundation. “They turn compassion into boots on the ground through their Archewell Foundation. They give voice to the voiceless through media production,” wrote chef José Andrés in a short essay on the couple. “Together with non-profit partners, they take risks to help communities in need: they support the mental health of black women and girls in the United States and feed those affected by natural disasters in India and the Caribbean.”
Meghan and Harry, what resigned from their royal duties in early 2020, topped the “Icons” section of the list, which also includes the pop star Britney Spears (39), country superstar Dolly Parton, tennis player Naomi Osaka and Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
