“They want to do it on their own terms, in their own way. The problem is that their only claim to fame is having been royals.
“Because they walked away from that the interest in them is going to wane over the next few years. They are going to struggle to keep people interested because they really don’t have anything to offer."
Despite stepping down as senior royals, the Duke and Duchess may be clinging to the relevancy of the royal family in other ways.
Earlier this year it was reported that Harry and Meghan have signed a $200 million Netflix deal. And, rumour has it, they are working on a tell-all documentary about what royal life is really like.

"An Oscar is all Meg has ever wanted," a source close to Meghan revealed to The Mail earlier this year.

The source continued, "Her absolute dream was to achieve the EGOT – the grand slam of show business – which is winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award.
