    Fans mock ‘awkward’ new Meghan Markle and Harry photos and say snaps ‘speak volumes’

    Striking new images have been released of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after they were named in TIME magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in 2021.

    But fans have mocked the photos for looking "awkward", with one saying their cover picture appears "overly photoshopped".

    The images were taken by photographer Pari Dukovic at their £11million mansion in California.

    Their cover image for the magazine shows the couple against the backdrop of trees, with Meghan dressed in all white and Harry contrasting in all black.

    Another shows them posing next to a window frame, with Harry wearing a suit and Meghan in a green roll neck jumper and grey trousers.

    While a third shows them walking hand-in-hand through the grounds of their US home.

    But taking to Twitter, one person wrote: "Terrible retouching job. They look CGI."

    Referring to the cover image, another said: "Harry looks completely awkward peering behind his wife like this."

    While somebody else tweeted: "Wow, this photo speaks volumes. There is no hiding who's in control."

    While a fan, who said they were "so proud" of their inclusion on the list, said: "My only criticism is that the photo looks overly photoshopped and fake. Idk what the designer and photographer were thinking but this is not my favourite pic of them. Anyway, congrats to my favs!!"

    Harry and Meghan's being listed comes as the magazine praised the pair for having "compassion for the people they don't know", adding: "They don't just opine. They run towards the struggle."

    The couple, who say they are "humbled", are profiled in a short article in the magazine by chef José Andrés.

    José is a founder of the World Central Kitchen, one of the charities the Sussexes' Archewell Foundation has been supporting.

    He tells TIME: "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. 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. 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."

    The announcement that the Sussexes are part of TIME's list comes as Harry celebrates his 37th birthday today.

    The Queen and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have led birthday wishes for him.

    The Queen said through her official Twitter account: "Wishing The Duke of Sussex a happy birthday today!"

    Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton followed suit as they tweeted a picture of a beaming Harry with the caption: "Happy Birthday Prince Harry!"

    Prince Charles and Camilla also took to the social media platform to say: "Wishing The Duke of Sussex a very Happy Birthday today!"
