Harry and Meghan have been named by ‘Time Magazine” as one of the hundred most influential people and given the illustrious honor of being on the cover. But instead of the issue being met with praise and accolades, their overly contrived and photoshopped pictures have been met with ridicule and scorn.
According to the Wikipedia page for the influential list, “the entrants are recognized for changing the world, regardless of the consequences of their actions.” Some of those who have made the list include Chinese President Xi Jinping, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs and others.
So should Harry and Meghan be included on this list, especially as “icons?”
In a gushing statement for the article, written by chef, friend and partner José Andrés, he said, “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.”
Well, they certainly don’t have compassion for anyone they do know. Like for example, Harry’s recently widowed Grandmother or Meghan’s father. They’ve been clearly written off by the couple, who’s efforts to storm Hollywood and the world have fallen rather flat.
Andrés continued, “(The couple are) blessed through birth and talent, and burned by fame.”
What “talent” is Andrés talking about? They have none.
Meghan was a d-list actress at best. She had very minor parts for much of her career before her role on Suits, a low-rated cable show where she was a side character who the producers were allegedly going to write out before she even got together with Harry.
The dimwitted prince, who publicly acknowledge that he doesn’t even understand the United States First Amendment, has little talent to speak of and barely graduated high school.
Yes, they can wax on with Oprah Winfrey how challenging it is to live in a castle rent-free with servants, security and the taxpayers funded lifestyle, but they’ve done little else to prove to the world that they have much talent at all.
But, to their credit, they are great examples of how to lose friends, family and not influence people.
“It would be much safer to enjoy their good fortune and stay silent,” Andrés added.
I think most of the world would appreciate more silence from the annoying twosome.
They don’t actually do anything about global situations, except to sometimes give an incredibly small donation and release word salad statements as if they’re heads of state or future heads of state, not just glorified influencers.
The cover picture and those inside of the couple are completely atrocious. The cover especially looks like the picture was just of Meghan, and Harry was added in later with the help of Adobe Photoshop. Meghan was clearly the focus, and Harry basically completely blurs into the background, like he wasn’t even supposed to be there at all.
The other photos are also so stage-managed, contrived and photoshopped that it just continues and strengthens the narrative that the two are fake and raises real questions about the state of their relationship.
They aren’t equal partners, as editor Dilys Ng attempted to claim about the image in response to criticism. It doesn’t even look like they took one of the photos together at the same time.
Clearly, Meghan is running the show. Harry’s just the tool that she used to try and conquer the world.
But, thankfully, Meghan just doesn’t have it in her to completely dominate Hollywood and the rest of the globe like she planned.
“Time Magazine” is right, they do influence the world—but not as icons. They are just the sideshow freaks and court jesters who couldn’t hack it as royals.
