"You're going to see them as far more activists than perhaps previous royal couples", said Morton, who spoke to dozens of royal officials, friends and family of the couple for the book.

"Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who will exchange their 'I do's" in Windsor on 19 May, are "incredibly grateful for the goodwill shown to them", Kensington Palace further added.
