Two weeks ago Harry and wife Meghan Markle were named among the world’s 100 most influential people by Time, and featured on the iconic magazine’s cover. The American publication released the edition on Harry’s 37th birthday, showing the Duke of Sussex standing behind Meghan with his arms on her right shoulder. Meghan, who is wearing a crisp white shirt and tailored white trousers, also appears to have made a subtle tribute to Diana by wearing a gold Cartier Tank Francaise that belonged to the Princess of Wales.
Time CEO and editor in chief wrote in a letter to readers that Harry and Meghan have “catalysed essential conversation on topics from mental health to misinformation.”
Photographed by Pari Dukovic, the cover shoot marked the first time the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have posed together formally for a magazine.
The shoot was mocked by some sections of social media, while the couple were poked fun of by Aussie comedians on Have You Been Paying Attention? in the aftermath of its publication.
A royal commentator on Pod Save The Queen also joked that Harry had unusually “luscious locks” on the magazine cover.

Pod Save the Queen is hosted by Ann Gripper and features Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers.
Ms Gripper said: “Let’s talk briefly about Time’s most influential list and those incredible pictures of Harry and Meghan.
“Sarah Bradbury, she shared the comment ‘It’s like a hairdresser explaining what he’s done to your layers’.
“She’s hit the nail on the head for me with that one.
“I think people were also commenting that Harry seemed to also have particularly luscious locks which is not always something he is associated with currently.”
Mr Myers added: “It’s certainly air-brushed within an inch of being real, I thought.
“They had a particularly lovely glow about them, but maybe I’m just jealous because my tan has long faded.”
Ms Gripper quipped: “But your hair is looking considerably more abundant than Prince Harry.”

Harry and Meghan were selected as two of the world’s most influential people despite the couple’s tension with the Royal Family since the Sussexes unprecedented decision to step down from royal duties in 2020.
They have since moved to the US and settled in Meghan’s home state of California.
The rift reportedly widened after the couple’s CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, where they made a number of claims against the Firm, including several around race and mental health.
The couple’s Time cover was also mocked by Australian comedians Ed Kavalee, Sam Pang, Luke McGregor and quizmaster Tom Gleisner on comedy panel show ‘Have You Been Paying Attention?’
When asked which magazine had featured Harry and Meghan on it’s cover this month Mr McGregor quickly replied “PC Gaming” which is a UK video gaming magazine.
Mr Gleisner quipped, to fits of laughter: “They’ll do anything”.
Mr Kavalee then guessed “Better Homes and Gold Diggers” in reference to Australian TV show and magazine Better Homes and Gardens.
