Why not Phillips for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 46-year-old prince, as a 2024 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Phillips so important is the potential and influence he now has, rather than anything he has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the prince have already been named ‘Briton Of The Year’ by some major British newspapers and even ‘London Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in London (Peter Phillips' hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the prince was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“Peter Phillips Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 17 Apr 2024
“Congrats! Peter has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 17 Apr 2024
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Peter Phillips?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 17 Apr 2024

Could 2024 officially be the Year of Peter Phillips?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2024 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2024?
