Meghan Markle and Prince Harry pose for the first joint magazine cover

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry marked a special milestone as a couple.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex posed together for the cover of the latest issue of Time magazine as two of the 100 people considered the most influential people of 2021. The couple were honored for their humanitarian work.

On the cover, taken by the photographer Dukovic bet, Meghan poses with Harry standing slightly behind her, with his hand on her shoulder, at their home in Montecito, California. The Duchess wears a white button-up shirt and matching pleated trousers, while the Duke sports a black long-sleeved shirt and matching trousers.

Inside the issue, the couple appear in additional photos, with Meghan wearing a dark green turtleneck and black trousers and Harry wearing a dark green suit with no tie.

Meghan and Harry, who also received Timeof the title of the most influential people in 2018, were recognized this year for their humanitarian work, in particular with their Archewell Foundation. They launched the nonprofit in California in 2020 after their controversial royal exit from the British monarchy. Archewell, whose name was inspired by their now 2-year-old son Archie Harrison, worked with the World Central Kitchen charity group to build four community rescue centres.
