Following the birth of the Sussexes' daughter Lilibet on June 4 last year, the couple said they were taking a period of "parental leave".

Yet a number of royal commentators were left confused after the couple continued to make statements.

Royal author Phil Dampier was one of those, but now reckons he knows why Meghan and Harry have continued in the limelight.

Speaking to The Sun, the claimed that the Sussexes were perhaps worried their fame will dwindle if they didn't.

He explained: "I thought they were supposed to be lying low for five months, it was suggested they were going to take five months off to look after their young family – I don’t think it’s been anything like five months.

"They don’t seem to have been out of the headlines in the period they were supposed to be quiet so it is a bit strange.

"I think they must feel that if they are out of the limelight their influence could fall very quickly and people could forget about them.

"The Queen always says 'I need to be seen to be believed' and the same thing applies to Harry and Meghan."

The couple's explosive Netflix series will stretched across six episodes and will be released in two parts.

The docuseries makes up part of Harry and Meghan's £110million deal with the streaming giant and will be available to watch before Harry's memoir Spare is released on January 10.
