Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Ready To Step Out And Resume Public Life

Harry & Meghan

They've been on self-imposed maternity leave.

The co-author of Harry and Meghan's biography, Omid Scobie, revealed to PEOPLE new details about how the parents plan to step back into the limelight.

The biography author said the couple is getting ready for a much more public post-Royal life, mentioning they are entering “the era of visibility."

"They're a couple who do very well in those moments of human interaction. They need to be on the ground," Scobie said.

The couple is "really excited" about expanding their in-person charity work. "They say that the proof is in the pudding, and what we are about to see is that pudding," the author added.

Even though they parted ways with the Royal Family, they are enjoying the financial freedom secured by their multimillion-dollar endorsement and speaking deals.

"They seem to be existing in a different place, and that place is much healthier," Scobie said. "Meghan famously spoke about that it was not enough to survive — we are now in the thrive chapter."
