There is "nothing to stop them."

"She resigned as a patron of the majority of her charities to concentrate on a few. Her future to help others seemed to have no limit save, alas, for the tragedy of her early death.

"Harry is devoted to her memory and he and Meghan are highly unlikely to consider the possibility of ceasing to be royals in the conventional sense.

"There wouldn’t be anything to stop them, the Duchess of Kent, for example, decided to reduce her royal duties, reportedly for health reasons, but it would be bizarre. It is as royals that they have the power to do good on a global scale."

Furthermore, Fitzwilliams said the Duke and Duchess have the potential to do good.

"Their fondness for celebrities has become famous, Meghan was one and loves this life, but it is important to remember the good these links can do, such as the Obamas and the Invictus Games and Oprah Winfrey and mental illness. It can only be a matter of time before they travel to the US where they will be lionised," he told the publication, adding that their impending royal tour of South Africa with their son Archie is destined for success.

"With their trip to South Africa likely to be a huge success, this may well be followed by other trips for longer periods and patronages and positions similar to the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust in the Commonwealth."

Meghan and Harry have made an effort to promote the Sussex Royal foundation - which they formed after splitting from the Royal Foundation they once shared with Prince William and Kate Middleton.

However, they have been struggling to find the balance between enjoying the luxuries of royal life and maintaining privacy.  

The royal couple has been raising baby Archie as a private citizen and kept the details of Archie's christening and his godparents private - a fact which prompted heavy backlash when it was revealed they had spent $4million of public money renovating their Frogmore Cottage home.

The Duchess of Sussex, in particular, has held back from engaging in royal life.

Recently, she rejected an invitation to visit the Queen at Balmoral for a royal engagement in order to watch her friend Serena Williams play in the US Open final in New York.
