Why not Princess Anne 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 67-year-old princess, as a 2017 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Princess Anne so important is the potential and influence she now has, rather than anything she has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the princess 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 (Princess Anne's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

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

“#Princess AnnePOY. Logical choice though I wouldn't have made the same one.”
— @TomMiller, 21 Nov 2017
“Congrats! Anne has this charisma that seems to come out of nowhere.”
— @SamanthaJones, 21 Nov 2017
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Princess Anne?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 21 Nov 2017

Could 2017 officially be the Year of Princess Anne?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2017 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2017?
