In a statement on their Archewell website the couple wrote: “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.”
“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….
“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,” the Magazine said. “They don’t just opine. They run toward the struggle.”
The couple stepped down from royal duties last year.
Since then, they have been busy on a variety of charitable and other projects including setting up the Archewell Foundation to replace their Sussex Royal brand.
