Granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II among finalists for TIME’s 2024 Person of the Year?

According to a credible source, Granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II Zara Phillips is leading the race to become Time magazine's Person of the Year in 2024. But while the princess' fans are thrilled with the news, many people hold a very different opinion.

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 42-year-old princess, as a 2024 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Phillips 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 (Zara Phillips' 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:

“#PhillipsPOY. Logical choice though I wouldn't have made the same one.”
— @TomMiller, 22 Feb 2024
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveZara”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 22 Feb 2024
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Zara Phillips?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 22 Feb 2024

Could 2024 officially be the Year of Zara 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?
