  • The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have appeared on Time, their first magazine cover together.
  • The couple are featured on the publication's "100 most influential people" list.
  • Other celebrities to get their own covers include Kate Winslet and Billie Eillish.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are among Time's annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, the magazine announced on Wednesday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex posed for a magazine cover photo for Time, which shows Markle in white and Harry in black while they both stare directly into the camera. It's the first time they have posed together for a magazine cover, according to Time's press release.

The cover is accompanied by a feature on the couple written by José Andrés, Founder of World Central Kitchen, a charity organization which they have worked with before.

"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," Andrés said in the press release.

"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. They don't just opine. They run toward the struggle," he added.

Harry and Markle are accompanied by six other worldwide covers, which feature Simone Biles, Kate Winslet, Billie Eillish, director-general of the World Trade Organization Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, CEO of NVIDIA Jensen Huang, and writer Cathy Park Hong.
