King Charles is on the long list of people to be Time’s Person of the Year which features a host of celebrities and well known people from across the globe. But surprisingly, Charles is below Vladimir Putin who declared war on Ukraine after invading in February. The award goes to the person or group who is judged to have had the greatest influence on 2022 – for better or worse.

Charles, who came to the throne after his mother’s death in September, has a Yes score of two per cent.

Meanwhile, Russian leader Putin has a Yes score of three per cent – making him just ahead of the monarch in the voting.

Also at three per cent is former US President Donald Trump and the current Prime Minister Rishi Sunak who took on the role after Liz Truss resigned.

Donald Trump was awarded the accolade in 2016.

The public is being asked to vote on a list of 60 global figures via Time.com but the winner will be selected by the magazine’s editors.

At the moment, the ‘Women protesters in Iran’ are leading with a positive score of 84 per cent in answer to the question should they be Time’s Person of the Year.

The demonstrations in Iran were inspired by the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini after she was detained by the country’s morality police for allegedly violating Iran’s strict dress code for women. 

Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky, who has resolutely rallied his nation during the Russian invasion, has a Yes score of 24 per cent.

Singer Taylor Swift currently has a Yes score of 10 per cent, while Beyonce is on seven per cent and About Damn Time singer Lizzo is five per cent. 

The US House Select Committee which is investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol is on seven per cent.

King Charles’ mother Queen Elizabeth II was Time’s Woman of the Year in 1952 – the year she became monarch. 

Meanwhile in 2019, climate activist Greta Thunberg, then just 16, made history when she was named the most influential.
