Prince Harry and Meghan Markle say they’re ‘humbled’ to be named in the ‘World’s 100 Most Influential People’ list, curated by Time Magazine

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released a statement on the Archewell website to celebrate the news.

It reads: “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are not only humbled to be part of this year’s TIME 100 through the words of friend and partner José Andres, but to also write in praise of Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala for the publication’s annual list of Most Influential People.”

In the issue, which is available to buy from Friday, the couple posed for a string of glamorous photographs and were described as ‘talented’ and compassionate’ in the interview.

However, the announcement didn’t go down too well with the publication’s readers, who questioned who the pair had actually ‘influenced’.

One person tweeted: “They are not one of the world’s most influential people e.g. I am NOT interested in them, nor what they do, nor what they say. For me, they are non-existent.”

“Who the f*** have they influenced lol,” another asked.

Last year, the couple made headlines across the globe when they confirmed they were stepping down as Senior Royals.

At the time, The Queen released an official statement addressing the controversial move.

It stated: “Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family. My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family.

“Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family.

“Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives. It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK.

“These are complex matters for my family to resolve, and there is some more work to be done, but I have asked for final decisions to be reached in the coming days.”
