Princess Royal's husband among finalists for TIME’s 2024 Person of the Year?

According to a credible source, Princess Royal's husband Timothy Laurence is leading the race to become Time magazine's Person of the Year in 2024. But while the soldier's fans are thrilled with the news, many people hold a very different opinion.

Why not Laurence 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 69-year-old soldier, as a 2024 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Laurence 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 soldier 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 (Timothy Laurence's hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

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

“Timothy Laurence Named Person of the Year Is No ‘Surprise’.”
— @TheNewsEditor, 14 Apr 2024
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveTimothy”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 14 Apr 2024
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Timothy Laurence?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 14 Apr 2024

Could 2024 officially be the Year of Timothy Laurence?

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?
