King Charles III of Britain, at 74 years old, has been named one of TIME's 100 Most Influential People of 2023 under the Icons category. The magazine's annual honours list, released on Thursday, recognized the monarch for his work with the Prince's Trust and his efforts to modernize the monarchy.

Charles, who has been praised for his work to put his friends and family into "steady employment" through the charity while he was growing up in west London, has been involved with the Prince's Trust since founding it in 1976. The trust helps young people get jobs, education, and training.

Edward Enninful, the British Vogue Editor-in-Chief, wrote a piece for Time in which he praised the King's close involvement with the Prince's Trust. He commended Charles for always meeting people with an open mind and a listening ear, despite the privilege he was born into.

Enninful also described the King as charming, funny, and socially confident, with a kindness that always seeks to put others at ease. He noted that Charles' love for the environment is well-documented, but his love for his subjects burns ever brighter.

While the monarchy is not perfect, Enninful believes that Charles' understanding of tradition and his ability to evolve with the times make him a rare and delicate balance.

As the new King of Britain, Charles III's popularity continues to grow. His dedication to charitable work and modernization efforts have earned him a spot among the most influential people of the year.
