All hail Prince Hairy — and Meghan Mark-less.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new Time 100 cover was roasted by internet users who believe the photo was heavily airbrushed.
The magazine released the cover picture of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Wednesday, in which they appear with eerily glowing smooth skin, creepy bright eyes and, in Harry’s case, suspiciously fuller hair.
Netizens flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts on the alleged retouching.
“The airbrush is doing some heavy lifting there,” one person tweeted on Wednesday.
“The cover looks so fake… oh wait it’s because they are,” someone else wrote.
Some thought the mag did a number on Harry’s infamously receding hairline.
“Is Harry wearing a rug? Or just overdone the air brushing?” wondered one user.
Another thought Harry and Markle looked like royals in an animated Disney flick, writing, “Terrible retouching job. They look CGI.”
“Jesus I thought this was a parody account with a clearly photoshopped creepy cover. Then I noticed the blue tick. Wow has @TIME fallen. Hard,” someone else tweeted.
One troll wrote that the couple looked “so plastic” that they could not tell whether the image was “real or photoshopped.”
Others, meanwhile, dragged Time for the way they positioned Meghan in front of Harry for the photo opp.
“Who approved this shot?! Is he standing? Is he sitting? Is he holding on to her shoulder so he doesn’t fall? Why would you make such lovely looking people look like this?” one Twitter user asked.
“Its like he’s cowering behind her,” someone else quipped.
Another compared the pic to the “Step Brothers” movie poster.
Others, however, seemed unbothered by the cover and praised the pair over the photo.
“Amazing cover! Love all the good work they are doing despite the vicious attacks coming at them by The Firm,” wrote a fan. “Keep up the good work #HarryAndMeghan! Your humanitarian work speaks for itself.”
“It’s the glow for me … This is what peace and happiness does,” tweeted another.
The former “Suits” star, 40, and her royal husband, 37, made the Time 100 list for their charity work with their Archwell Foundation.
“They turn compassion into boots on the ground through their Archewell Foundation. They give voice to the voiceless through media production,” chef José Andrés wrote in a short essay about the pair. “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 US and feeding those affected by natural disasters in India and the Caribbean.”
Markle and Harry — who resigned from their royal duties in early 2020 — topped the “Icons” section of the list, which also includes pop star Britney Spears, country superstar Dolly Parton, tennis pro Naomi Osaka and Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
