The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are on the cover of the special issue of the American magazine, which lists its influential figures each year.
Omid Scobie, the Royal editor at large at Harper's Bazaar, made the announcement on Twitter alongside a picture of the cover.
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have made this year’s #TIME100 Most Influential List: “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.” pic.twitter.com/gPXRFBoNgU— Omid Scobie (@scobie) September 15, 2021
The Sussexes were photographed in their home in California and a short profile written by José Andrés, founder of the World Central Kitchen, a non-profit organisation that distributes food to those suffering in the wake of natural disasters.
The profile references their Archewell Foundation through which they produce media content as well as their charity work, including helping nonprofit groups offer mental health support to black women and girls in the United States.
It concludes with referencing the couple’s “compassion” for those in need. “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,” it reads. “They don’t just opine. They run towards struggle.”
Prince Harry and Meghan started important conversations about mental health and race earlier this year following their groundbreaking interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Meghan spoke candidly about her mental health revealed she was left feeling suicidal during her time as a royal during the interview, which aired in March 2021.
Discussing why Archie wasn't titled as a prince after he was born, Meghan, was pregnant with the couple's daughter Lili at the time of filming, refused to rule out suggestions his race could have played a part.
Prince Harry was asked about the alleged conversation regarding his son's skin colour when he joined Meghan later during the interview, and appeared to clarify that it had happened right at the beginning of their courtship - before Meghan was pregnant.
In a rare statement, Buckingham Palace addressed the race debate that had caused outraged across the world after it came to light. "The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan," the statement read.
"The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.
"Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members."
