PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle were today named in Time's list of top 100 most influential people as they appeared in a glitzy cover shoot for the magazine.

Meghan Markle has shown she is the “real power and brains of the family”, with “self-conscious Prince Harry as her “support act”, claims a body language expert. 

Judi James told Fabulous: "Meghan is to the front of both these poses and in the first one Harry stands beside and behind her with one hand placed rather self-consciously on her shoulder while she employs a slightly more tentative hand-touch at waist level.

"He seems to be directing us towards his wife in terms of the real power and brains of the family here."

Meanwhile, Piers Morgan took a snub on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex following their Time's list announcement.

Piers simply retweeted the front cover and inserted a bunch of laughing emojis to go along with it.

THE QUEEN ‘WON’T OVERRULE CHARLES’ PLAN TO KEEP ANDREW AWAY FROM PUBLIC DUTIES’, CLAIMS ROYAL BIOGRAPHER ANGELA LEVIN

The Queen won’t “overrule” her eldest, who reportedly wishes to keep the Duke of York out of the public eye after damaging sex assault allegations.

However, the monarch “adores” Andrew and “enjoys his company”, expert Angela Levin said today.

Ms Levin, who has written an authorised biography on Prince Harry, called Andrew “naïve and arrogant” as the royal faces a legal wrangle in a US civil court.

In an interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer on TalkRADIO, she said the Queen had ruled out Andrew’s return to duties.

“She said he couldn’t be,” she said.

“She adores Andrew and enjoys his company.

“I think that she won’t overrule what Charles says. The rest of the royals won’t want him to do that.”

MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY NAMED IN TIME’S 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL LIST AS BIZARRE COVER LEAVES FANS BAFFLED

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were praised in the publication for "running towards struggle" in a world where "everyone has an opinion about people they don’t know".

A snap of the pair, shot by Pari Dukovic, appears on the front of the magazine with Harry wearing all black as he stands behind Meghan, wearing all white.

In a more candid shot, the parents can be seen walking through a garden holding hands at they beam at each other.

The couple join prestigious names who have also graced the magazine's cover - following the likes of Barack Obama, the first black US president.

MEGHAN MARKLE IS THE ‘REAL POWER OF THE FAMILY’ AS SELF-CONSCIOUS HARRY IS HER ‘SUPPORT ACT’, BODY LANGUAGE REVEALS

Judi James said the Duke, who turned 37 today, and Duchess, 40, “adopted the ultimate City power-poses” in their shoot for Time Magazine's top 100 most influential list of people.

Judi told Fabulous: “Looking more like a scene from Suits than your average royal-marries-actress couple, Harry and Meghan have adopted the ultimate City power-poses here, with most of the power signals coming from Meghan while Harry seems happy to endorse her as a wingman.

“Meghan’s leg splay suggests both power and confidence and that partial, one-arm barrier gesture with the other hand raised to the face is the classic ‘enquiring intellectual’ pose of business experts.

“Meghan is to the front of the pose and Harry stands beside and behind her with one hand placed rather self-consciously on her shoulder while she employs a slightly more tentative hand-touch at waist level. 

“He seems to be directing us towards his wife in terms of the real power and brains of the family here.”

CANDACE OWENS RIPS MEGHAN MARKLE & ’EMASCULATED’ HARRY’S TIME COVER AS SHE SAYS SHE’D NEVER EMBARRASS HUSBAND LIKE THIS’

CANDACE Owens took to Twitter to scoff at Time Magazine's top 100 cover featuring Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, quote-tweeting the image with the caption “I honestly cannot.”

“The live emasculation of Prince Harry continues,” the conservative commentator wrote. “I would never want my husband to be embarrassed like this in front of the world.”

Owens married Englishman George Farmer, prior chairman of Turning Point UK, in August of 2019 at the Trump Winery in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In her mic-drop moment, Candace ended the tweet by calling the photo and the couple “Just so pathetic.”

Candace has criticized the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Twitter several times this year.

PRINCE HARRY’S BALD SPOT HAS BEEN PHOTOSHOPPED IN GLITZY TIME MAGAZINE COVER SHOOT, FANS CLAIM

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex landed the front cover of Time magazine after being named among the top 100 most influential people this year.

But the magazine's front cover left some fans scratching their heads with Prince Harry - who turns 37 today - appearing to have more hair on his head than usual.

In recent years, the dad-of-two has appeared to struggle with hair loss.

One tweeted: "Is Harry wearing a rug? Or just overdone the air brushing?"

Another one joked: "It is possible that Prince Harry got that Bosley hair transplant or Hair Club for Men or whatever."

Someone added: "I feel like the cover photo could be better but look at Prince Harry looking hot AND with full hair…WHEW!"

The cover photo shows Harry wearing all black standing behind Meghan, who is dressed in a white jumpsuit.

EXPLAINED: HOW IS PRINCE ANDREW LINKED TO JEFFREY EPSTEIN?

The Duke of York said he first met Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire financier, in 1999 with the now dead banker once describing him as his “best friend.”

That was also the year the UK press reported on the pair’s friendship.

The pair are thought to have flown together on Epstein’s private jet to the US Virgin Islands.

And in June 2000, Epstein and his Brit “madam” ex, Maxwell were both guests at a party hosted by the Queen at Windsor Castle.

Prince Andrew also became close with Maxwell – pictured together that same year at a Halloween party hosted by Heidi Klum in New York.

Just over a month later, in December 2000, the then 40-year-old prince, threw Ms Maxwell a surprise birthday party at Sandringham, with Epstein among the guests.

'JAIL PRINCE ANDREW’, SAYS VIRGINIA ROBERTS’ DAD

It comes as the Duke is set to swerve a hearing in his sex assault civil case today by having no representatives taking part.

Sky Roberts said he would like Prince Andrew to go to jail, claiming he “needs to know what it’s like to be held accountable”.

He told Good Morning Britain: “This is not the time of William Wallace where the royals can do whatever they want.

“The times have changed. Prince Andrew thinks it’s still those times where he can do whatever he wants.”

Roberts, 38, who is one of the most well-known Jeffrey Epstein victims, is accusing the prince of assaulting her three times when she was under the age of 18.

FANS JOKE ‘WERE THEY DESPERATE’ AS MEGHAN MARKLE & ‘HANDBAG’ PRINCE HARRY ARE NAMED IN TIME’S 100 INFLUENTIAL LIST

ROYAL fans have joked that Time Magazine were “desperate” when they picked Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for their most influential list.

A Hollywood style snap of Harry and Meghan shows the Duke awkwardly hanging off his wife’s shoulder - with many comparing him to a handbag - as the couple were named among the top 100 most influential people in the world.

One wrote: "Top 100 influential people or controversial people in the world? Were you desperate for candidates?"

Another added: "As usual, Meghan's at the front, the Handbag carrier knows his place."

Yet another fan joked: “Why does ‘Prince’ Harry’s head look like it's been airbrushed onto someone else’s body.”

While another asked: “Is Harry wearing a rug? Or just overdone the air brushing?”

And a third said: “Are you sure that’s their bodies? Looked photoshopped.”

PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE ACCUSED OF ‘BREATHTAKING ENTITLEMENT’ OVER LILIBET’S CHRISTENING BY ROYAL EXPERT

Rumours suggest the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have requested a formal christening for baby Lilibet at Windsor Castle, Robert Jobson reports.

Lilibet Diana, who shares both the Queen’s pet name and Harry’s mother Diana’s name, was born in California in June.

It is not yet know where she will be christened, although royal commentator Robert Jobson suggests it would be “breathtaking” for Meghan and Harry to expect any kind of royal affair.

Writing in The Mirror, he said: “Now there is talk – as she is already older than her brother Archie was when he was christened – that they are pushing for a ceremony in the private chapel at Windsor Castle.

“To some, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s sense of entitlement might seem breathtaking.

“They seem to be blissfully unaware of the mayhem their behaviour has caused the Queen, the monarchy and the Royal Family.”

PRINCE HARRY WILL ‘REGRET’ FEUDING WITH HIS FAMILY

Prince Harry turns 37 today, and a royal expert has claimed that it is “incredible” how much has changed for him in just five years.

Royal expert Phil Dampier said the Duke of Sussex, who stepped down as a senior royal last year, will look back at this birthday and “regret” feuding with his family and giving up his birthright but he’s “made his bed.”

Phil, author of Royally Suited: Harry and Meghan In Their Own Words, told Fabulous: “As Harry turns 37 it’s incredible to look back five years and see how much he has changed and his life has changed.

“Five years ago he was one of, if not the most popular member of the royal family, regarded as a war hero, one of the lads, a good laugh and the world’s most eligible bachelor.

“Now he is married, a father, a woke warrior and, sadly, very unpopular.”

MEGHAN MARKLE’S PREFERRED NATURAL ALTERNATIVE TO BOTOX IS NOW ON AMAZON

Back in 2018, when Meghan was being welcomed into the Royal Family, she was rumored to be a fan of this product, which has been dubbed”Botox on a bottle.”

According to the brand, in just 60 minutes, your skin will have fewer wrinkles and have a visibly younger look.

Many have already tried it, taking to Amazon reviews to rave about the product.

One actually used it in place of Botox amid the Covid-19 pandemic: “This is working. Truly and honestly after a week of use, I woke up and looked in the mirror and didn’t see a riverbed of furrows.”

MEGHAN MARKLE & PRINCE HARRY HAVE ‘DEPRIVED’ KIDS ARCHIE & LILIBET BY NOT LETTING THEM MEET QUEEN, THOMAS CLAIMS

Thomas Markle accused the couple of being "terribly unfair" to their children by keeping them away from relatives, including himself and Grandad Prince Charles too.

He told Channel 7’s Sunrise: "I think they (Archie and Lilibet) are being deprived of seeing all their grandparents and I think they are being deprived of seeing all their relatives and I think that's terribly unfair to them."

Asked if he would consider legal action to see his grandkids, he said: "I've had offers from several lawyers - pro-bono - because we do have the right to sue to see our grandchildren.

"But to me that's like trying to descend into a game and using them like pawns and I won't sue to see them because I just think that's using them and it's not what I plan to do."

BIRTHDAY MESSAGE SHOWS RIFT HASN'T HEALED, SAYS EXPERT

Prince William and Kate Middleton sent a “curt” birthday message to Prince Harry as he turned 37 today which proved the “ice hasn’t thawed”, claims a royal expert.

The Twitter tribute featured the Duke of Sussex standing alone with the simple message "Happy Birthday Prince Harry!"

Duncan told Fabulous: “William and Kate’s curt birthday message to Harry only serves as proof the ice between the brothers has still not thawed.

“Short of ignoring the Duke of Sussex’s 37th landmark completely, their social media post was the bare minimum from a couple who once welcomed Harry as their official Royal gooseberry.

“If anything, this year’s birthday wishes from the Cambridges are an indication of just how far relations between the two warring clans have deteriorated over the past 12 months.”

'HE CANNOT REFUSE' (CONTINUED...)

Explaining the process in more detail, Mr Boies said: "Under the Hague Convention a judicial officer is to submit the complaint to a central authority of the receiving nation for service.

"A judicial officer under the law is from the originating nation in this case the US and the receiving nation is the UK.

"The question was, under US law is a lawyer for a party a judicial officer?

"That information had not been furnished in our original application.

"We furnished that information subsequently and the High Court accepted that and made the decision to proceed with service.

"I believe that is the way (service at Royal Lodge) the High Court will proceed but also has discretion to proceed other ways, transmitting it not in person but by Royal Mail and the like.

"He cannot refuse. That is when the clock begins to tick and he has 21 days to respond."

PRINCE ANDREW WILL FACE VIRGINIA ROBERTS SEX ASSAULT CASE IN THE US AFTER HIGH COURT AGREES TO SERVE HIM PAPERS

The Duke of York, 61, now "cannot refuse" the official documents - and he'll have just 21 says to respond.

David Boies, lawyer for Ms Giuffre, told The Sun: "The bottom line is Prince Andrew is being served.

"That is the substance of what the High Court says. He cannot refuse."

Andrew may try to deny the complaint, he added, and his lawyers would then have to provide testimony and supporting documents.

Or he could try to challenge the jurisdiction of the US court - despite being served - and argue he is not subject to New York jurisdiction.

Either way he will have just 21 days to respond.

NO CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION INTO MARTIN BASHIR'S PANORAMA INTERVIEW, SAY POLICE

Police will not launch a criminal investigation into BBC journalist Martin Bashir's Panorama interview with Princess Diana.

The decision comes after the Metropolitan Police assessed the Lord Dyson report into the 1995 documentary.

Scotland Yard said: "In March 2021, the Metropolitan Police Service determined it was not appropriate to begin a criminal investigation into allegations of unlawful activity in connection with a documentary broadcast in 1995.

"Following the publication of Lord Dyson's report in May, specialist detectives assessed its contents and looked carefully at the law - once again obtaining independent legal advice from Treasury Counsel as well as consulting the Crown Prosecution Service.

"As a result, the MPS has not identified evidence of activity that constituted a criminal offence and will therefore be taking no further action."

PRINCE HARRY TELLS OF ‘DARK PLACES’ AND HARD RECOVERY FOR WOUNDED VETERANS AT WARRIOR GAMES EVENT WITH JILL BIDEN

The Duke of Sussex, who served in the Army for a decade, paid tribute to servicemen and women as he spoke of “service” from his multimillion pound home in exclusive Montecito, California.

He was introduced by Dr Jill Biden, who saluted him for his “heart” in a speech live-streamed online.

She said the duke was among those to step forward and serve in the years after 9/11.

“I was reminded of the humanity that shines through the inhumanity of that day. There was a call to defend the values we hold dear,” she said.

“You’ve dedicated time, talent and heart to lifting up service members from around the globe.”

And the prince, who has told of his own battles with mental health, said the games are “so important” to those struggling.

“It is ultimately the reminder of service, both at home and overseas,” he said.

“As we know, once served, always serving.”

'EXTRAORDINARY MISJUDGEMENT'

Royal expert Angela Levin, who wrote Harry: Conversations with the Prince told The Sun she believes “it's the most extraordinary misjudgement of the magazine.”

She said: “The world’s most influential people? Surely not on the values of family. 

“I don’t see how you can crown someone as influential when they are so bitter, and angry with her in-laws and his own family and spouting out criticism which has often been found out to be a lie. 

“It’s absolutely baffling.

She added: “I just don't understand that, within a 100 people, how they could come into it.

“They might have done a very good job for climate change but they fly whenever they want to by private plane. Is that an influential thing?

“Is it compassion? They haven’t been too compassionate with a lot of people.”
