A commentator says that Prince Harry "must have been really p****d off" for having to take part in a photoshoot that listed him and Meghan Markle among the worlds 100 most influential people.

Columnist Rachael Bletchly made the remarks following the pair's latest photoshoot with Time magazine which claims to have captured Harry and Meghan's ­"powerful dynamic as equal partners".

Harry, who has been dubbed as "camera-shy", has made it quite clear in the past that he hates being photographed due to the memories it triggers of his late mother Diana.

“Every single time I see a camera, every single time I hear a click, every single time I hear a flash, it takes me straight back,” he said in 2019.

The Time magazine cover has caused a large divide in opinion online - following the pairs move to California for a quieter life away from the spotlight.

"So it must have really p****d Harry off that Time magazine went and made him and Megan “Icons”. Because the shy, ­retiring couple had to face those bloody cameras again and pose for a cover shoot," said Rachael Bletchly for The Mirror.

"Or, as one Twitter wag suggested, 'like Harry is her hairdresser and he’s looking into the mirror explaining what he did to her layers'."

"They were back to work this week after the school ­holidays. Kate went to RAF Brize Norton this week to thank folk involved in evacuating Afghan refugees, while William was handing out awards to NHS heroes. They are the REAL icons. The ­authentic face of modern monarchy, the picture of royal duty.

"And as the Queen starts to cut her ­workload after next year’s Platinum celebrations, the Cambridges will thankfully come into even sharper focus. But Harry won’t be out of the frame for long.

"He’s releasing an explosive memoir in 2022 – and it could just steal the spotlight from Granny’s Jubilee. How on earth is he going to cope with all those ­photographic triggers?"

It's been a year like no other for the Queen from the loss of her husband to heartache over Prince Harry.
