The Duke and Duchess of Sussex “should wait” before launching new projects and saying certain things, Express.co.uk was told by a royal expert. It comes as the couple issued a statement saying they were “heartbroken and scared” over the humanitarian crises unfolding in Afghanistan and Haiti. Harry has a special interest in the Central Asian country, having served there during his time in the army in 2008 and 2012.
The statement was characteristic of the pair’s interest in human rights and striving to make the world a better place.
This has also been reflected in the countless projects they are working on.
As part of their multimillion Netflix and Spotify deals, they promised to make original content that will bring “inspiration” to the masses.
On top of this, several side projects have sprouted up, including Harry’s much anticipated memoir, set to be published next year.
A major sticking point with the book is its timing: it coincides with the Queen’s platinum jubilee, and his brother, Prince William’s landmark 40th birthday.
Marlene Koenig, a royal expert, said while she believed they had “made some good decisions”, many appeared to be in haste.
She told Express.co.uk: “I sometimes think that other things should wait.
“They want to put their eggs in a basket right now because people are interested.

“There are people who will denigrate them and call them horrible things, but they are two human beings who have made a decision.
“Meghan and Harry are two human beings who have made a decision: they may not have made completely the right decision, and not every decision has been good, nor how they’ve reacted to situations, but that’s a whole other story.”
The content of Harry’s memoir is so far unknown, its announcement taking many by surprise.
It is believed that it will follow in a style similar to the various revelatory broadcast interviews he has given in recent months.

In each, Harry has shared some previously undisclosed account about his time in the Royal Family.
Prince Charles and William are said to be “nervous” about what the book might contain.
Last month, a source close to the situation told US Weekly that the Firm as a whole was “shaken up” by it.
They said: “They [Charles and William] haven’t received a copy yet and don’t know what to expect. It’s making them nervous.”
In a statement announcing the book, Harry said: “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.”
He continued: “I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story — the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned — I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.”
According to the publisher, the book will include “the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape” Harry’s point of view.
It said: “Prince Harry will offer an honest and captivating personal portrait, one that shows readers that behind everything they think they know lies an inspiring, courageous, and uplifting human story.”
According to Cosmopolitan, Harry’s book deal is worth £14.5million.
Proceeds will go to charity.
Harry is also finalising his ‘Heart of Invictus’ Netflix documentary, while Meghan is busy working on her animated children’s programme, ‘Pearl’, with the help of Elton John’s husband, David Furnish.
