For the photo-shoot, Prince Harry wore a suit and Meghan wore a blazer, plain white T-shirt, and trousers. Royal fans were quick to praise the couple on social media. In what appeared to be a swipe and critics who said Meghan and Harry wouldn’t last, one fan wrote with a series of heart emojis: “Still together. And looking happy in love. Imagine that.”
A second tweeted: “Meghan and Harry are such special couple. Together they will do a lot of benevolence in the world!”
A third person commented: “They are so beautiful together. Such an understatement.”
The photos, which were captured for the Oprah Magazine by photographer Matt Sayles, were also described as “gorgeous” and “lovely” by other fans.
The photographer said he had wished to “reflect a more inclusive image of beauty” in his portraits of the couple.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also hosted a Time 100 Talks episode on how to make more compassionate online communities.
Royal biographer Omid Scobie tweeted: “Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are hosting a Time 100 Talks episode on improving the digital world and creating more compassionate communities online.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex wish to help create a “more compassionate, safe, and trustworthy digital world.”
Dan Macsai, TIME executive editor and editorial director of the TIME 100, said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, both TIME100 alumni, are among the most influential voices in the world.”
