New Times feature WHO DIS?!
For the second time Harry and Meghan have been given a feature in Times.
The first occasion was for a virtual round table in collaboration with Proctor And Gamble who Meghan has had a longstanding relationship with.
Now, they have officially been chosen as part of Times Annual 100 Most influential People.
Note to the editors of Times: people as gorgeous and Harry and Meghan don’t need this level of heavy editing! Asides from that, they look incredible.
Can talk about the outfit choices for this feature! We’re getting the brilliance and glamour that we were denied for so long. The Sussex’s are no longer dimming their light, they’re going to shine bright like a f**ing diamond on the cover of TIMES!
Harry and Meghan may have also done a first: they were both profiled themselves and profiled another person.
In a beautifully written piece, they honoured Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala the first African and first woman to lead the World Trade Organization. You can read that piece here.
Chef Jose Andrés is a chef and the founder of World Central Kitchen presented Harry and Meghan. The Archwell Foundation supports his organisation as part of The Sussex’s efforts to bring awareness to food security.
Andrés wrote this about Harry and Meghan:
There’s a famous TV interview of Harry, the Duke of Sussex, when he was an Apache helicopter gunner a few years ago. He’s sitting close to an airfield in Afghanistan, commenting on some royal news, when there’s a bang and a group of soldiers scramble behind him.
In one swift motion, he stands up, rips off his microphone and runs toward the action.
That same sense of urgency drives Meghan, now the Duchess of Sussex, who has long been an active humanitarian and a powerful advocate for women and girls around the world. “This type of work is what feeds my soul,” she wrote in a 2016 essay. 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.
That’s not what Harry and Meghan do, or who they are. They turn compassion into boots on the ground through their Archewell Foundation. They give voice to the voiceless through media production. Hand in hand with nonprofit 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.
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.

Couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
I live in Central Pettyville, so I can’t help but wonder what happens in Kensington Palace everytime Harry and Meghan get a win like this….
