Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have been judged as one of the most influential people in the world by TIME magazine, which featured them in the most coveted and prestigious 'Time's 100 most influential people' list of 2021. The duo featured on the cover which went viral for all the wrong reasons. In the picture, Prince Harry can be seen standing next to Meghan. While in the picture they are dressed to the nines, netizens feel that the picture is heavily photoshopped and looks 'funny.' The cover was brutually trolled as many called it out for being overly 'airbrushed,' others called it a 'joke'.
Reacting to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's presence in the list of 100 Most Influential People list, a Twitter user said, "They don't know what compassion is, perhaps they could start with their families rather than the people they don't know." Another tweeted, "he looks so whipped the way he's standing behind her. It's clear who makes the real decisions in their relationship."
