Look sharp, royal fans - Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are gearing up to make their next joint appearance, and this one is extra special.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are set to join a plethora of impressive names for the very first TV broadcast of TIME's annual 100 Most Influential People.
Revealed by E! News, the pair will be joining the broadcast in an historic first for the publication, likely via a live video link, as they join a plethora of other well known faces to celebrate changemakers and unqiue talents fronting the social sphere today.
According to E!'s report, Meghan and Harry will be joined by the likes of John Legend, Sanra Oh and Trevor Noah.

The special will air on September 22, with the full list of names expected to be revealed for the broadcast event.
TIME's president Ian Orefice said in a statement: "In a year in which we are unfortunately unable to convene the TIME100 community together in person, we are excited to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of the members of this year's list with a brand-new experience on ABC that will allow more people to participate than ever before."
The broadcast will also pay homage to the "extraordinarily of this year".

This will mark a very rare opportunity to see both Harry and Meghan together after the pair chose to step back from their former roles as senior royal family members.
Officially commencing a new financially independent life in March, the Sussex duo have since moved to the US state of California, where they have purchased a Santa Barbara mansion to raise their young son Archie.
It's understood they have spent the last six months working behind the scenes on their various charitable projects and initiatives, which will sit under the hearty umbrella of their new foundation, Archewell.
The last time we saw the pair together was in August, where they joined a panel discussion with youth leaders from the Queens Commonwealth Trust, of which the pair helm as president and vice-president.
Speaking to the young talents, the royals engaged in topics about the unique role of social media and online media, and its power to drive for a greater good.
We look forward to hearing what they have to say in their next big broadcasting gig. With their continued work and effort in mind, TIME's top 100 seems the perfect fit.
