Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Two of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People. The Duke And Duchess of Sussex were recognized for their philanthropy and advocacy work.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s influence is infinite, according to TIME.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex appear together on a cover for the first time as part of the magazine’s annual TIME100 list, which rounds up the world’s most powerful people who are working to change the world for the better. Fellow cover stars include Simone Biles, Billie Eilish, and Kate Winslet.

For the cover, Meghan appears in a chic monochromatic ensemble that includes a cream-hued blouse and matching high-waist trousers, while Harry goes all black with his shirt and slacks. According to the outlet, the pair were selected for the list due to their dedication to activism and mental health advocacy, as well as Meghan’s lifelong commitment to advancing the lives of women and girls worldwide. The pair also wrote a profile in the new issue for fellow nominee Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, a Nigerian American economist fighting for global vaccine equity.

While there is no accompanying profile for the couple’s cover shoot, their friend, founder of World Central Kitchen Chef Jose Andres did write a touching message in honor of the couple.

“They turn compassion into boots on the ground through their Archewell Foundation. They give voice to the voiceless through media production. Hand in hand with nonprofit partners, they take risks to help communities in need—offering mental-health support to Black women and girls in the U.S., and feeding those affected by natural disasters in India and the Caribbean,” wrote Andres. “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.”

The new cover appears to officially symbolize a new start for the Sussexes, who reportedly are preparing for a new “era of visibility” once the COVID-19 pandemic allows.

“They’re a couple who do very well in those moments of human interaction. They need to be on the ground,” Harper’s BAZAAR’s royal editor Omid Scobie told People. “They say that the proof is in the pudding, and what we are about to see is that pudding.”

Britain’s Prince Harry and US First Lady Jill Biden will host a virtual event for athletes involved in the Warrior Games, an event for wounded US military veterans, the White House said late Sunday.

The US Department of Defense Warrior Games is normally an annual event “that celebrates the resiliency and dedication of wounded, ill, and injured active duty and veteran US military Service members”.

US First Lady Jill Biden will host a virtual event along with Britain’s Prince Harry for athletes involved in the Warrior Games, an event for wounded US military veterans, the White House said late Sunday.

The US Department of Defense Warrior Games, first held in 2010, is normally an annual event “that celebrates the resiliency and dedication of wounded, ill, and injured active duty and veteran US military Service members,” the Office of the First Lady said in a statement.

The 2021 Warrior Games were scheduled to start this week in Orlando, Florida, “but were canceled to ensure the health and safety of the athletes and their families due to COVID-related concerns,” the statement read.

Prince Harry, a combat veteran who served two tours in Afghanistan, is founder of The Invictus Games, a multi-national sports event for wounded service members and veterans. He first attended the Warrior Games in 2013 in Colorado.

US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Ken Fisher, head of the Fisher House Foundation – which provides housing for families of patients receiving medical care at military and Veterans Affairs medical centers – will also be at the virtual event.

Biden, Prince Harry, Austin and Fisher had planned to be at the games in person before they were cancelled.

Jill Biden’s stepson, the late Beau Biden, was a US army veteran and served one year in Iraq during the war.

The First Lady “has a long history of supporting the adaptive sporting community through Joining Forces, the White House initiative to support military and veteran families, caregivers, and survivors,” the statement read.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Archewell hires Mandana Dayani as first COO. The voter turnout activist and former fashion exec will report directly to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Archewell, the organization founded by Meghan and Harry, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, has hired tech and media exec Mandana Dayani as its first chief operating officer, the organization tells Fortune exclusively.

The COO role will report directly to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Dayani will oversee growth strategy and day-to-day operations of the organization, which includes the nonprofit Archewell Foundation as well as the media businesses Archewell Audio and Archewell Productions. She began her position with Archewell in June.

“I am so inspired by the vision and unwavering dedication of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to create a more united, truthful, safe, and equitable world,” Dayani said in a statement. “I am thrilled to build upon our shared mission to drive systemic cultural change.”

Like the mandate of her new employer, Dayani’s experience covers both business and media and social change initiatives. Dayani is known for founding the “I am a voter” campaign, which aims to increase civic engagement and voter turnout. In the the lead-up to the 2020 U.S. presidential election, the initiative urged eligible voters to register and sent election reminders and information. She spent five years as a vice president with fashion designer Rachel Zoe and before that worked as a corporate attorney and commercial talent agent. She was also chief brand officer for online estate sale business Everything but the House.

Dayani joins a staff at Archewell that includes the foundation’s executive director, James Holt; head of content Ben Browning; and head of Archewell Audio Rebecca Sananes, head of unscripted Chanel Pysnik, and SVP of scripted TV Nishika Kumble.

Harry and Meghan founded Archewell in 2020 following their departure as working members of the British Royal Family. Since then, Archewell has announced several projects—including through Spotify and Netflix—but few have debuted yet. With Netflix, Archewell Productions is slated to produce a docuseries about the Invictus Games and an animated series, Pearl, about a 12-year-old girl and her encounters with influential women throughout history.

Most recently, the organization launched a campaign urging people to donate 40 minutes of their time to mentor or support a woman returning to the workforce—in light of the pandemic’s impact on working women and mothers—in honor of Meghan’s 40th birthday.

Meghan and Harry are currently on parental leave following the birth of their second child, Lilibet Diana, in June.
