Omid Scobie, who wrote the fabulously pro-Meghan Finding Freedom about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s time as senior royals, said they are instead focusing on creating a new “long-lasting legacy”. Mr Scobie even claimed that stepping back as active members of the Royal Family has allowed them to change how they work.
Speaking on the Royally Obsessed podcast, he revealed that he doesn’t think there will be any new projects released until some time later.
It could be “some time” before the Sussexes broadcast an episode on Spotify as part of their reported £18 million deal to produce and host podcasts, he said.
The couple also signed a lucrative £112 million deal with Netflix last year to create an Invictus Games documentary about the event that Harry created for injured service personnel.
Mr Scobie told the podcast: “To actually see some of the fruits of the Netflix labour, to see the Spotify series, it was a great start, but I think it’s just that they are not rushing.
“I don’t think those first episodes of the Spotify series will be around for quite some time, partly I think because there is a baby on the way and also other focuses.
“I think one thing has changed in the way that they work.”
He also mentioned that Meghan, 39, and Harry, 36, were “desperate” to prove themselves before they stepped down as senior working royals.
The expert explained: “You only need to look at how quickly Meghan got the Smart Works (a UK charity which supports women into employment) collection out or how quickly Harry got the first Invictus off the ground, that’s kind of how they approached their work.

“But I think there’s also a beauty in taking your time.
“They want to create a long-lasting legacy for themselves just as the Sussexes, not as royals.
“When you want to do that, slow and steady is the way forward.”
Podcast hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie asked when royal fans could see or hear Meghan and Harry.
He replied: “We will definitely be seeing the growth of the Archewell foundation continue this year.
“We heard a lot of initial partnership with organisations that they will be working with.”
The couple stepped back as senior royals in January 2020 – in what was dubbed Megxit – before they made the move permanent this year.
They have since settled in LA with their son Archie.
Meghan is currently heavily pregnant with their second child.
This meant she missed Prince Philip’s funeral at Windsor Castle last weekend.
They have both kept a low profile since the Duke of Edinburgh’s death.
But as his health failed they saw fit to host their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey – a move which enraged many royal fans.
During the explosive chat the pair levelled racism accusations at the royals – leading Prince William to publicly insist that they are “very much” not a racist family.
