After taking two months off to care for daughter Lilibet, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are "really excited" to get back to work, royal expert Omid Scobie shared.
According to the Finding Freedom author, the pair are ready to enter "the era of visibility" as they take on new projects and continue their work with their Archewell Foundation.
"They're a couple who do very well in those moments of human interaction. They need to be on the ground," Scobie explained to PEOPLE. "They say that the proof is in the pudding, and what we are about to see is that pudding."
Over the past few years, the parents-of-two have faced their fair share of hardships and scrutiny, but the royal expert insisted that they've since learned to put their mental health first and ignore "the toxicity" that comes their way.
Making a few lifestyle changes has dramatically improved their outlook on life.
"They seem to be existing in a different place, and that place is much healthier," he shared. "Meghan famously spoke about that it was not enough to survive — we are now in the thrive chapter."
Scobie and coauthor Carolyn Durand detail the Sussexes' ups and downs in a new epilogue of their book, with the updated version hitting shelves on August 31.
New content will reportedly cover behind-the-scenes secrets from the duo's interview with Oprah Winfrey, the birth of daughter Lilibet, their new business ventures and the couple's grief as they mourned Harry's grandfather, Prince Philip.
The work reveals "why they chose to pursue a more independent path and the reasons behind their unprecedented decision to step away from their royal lives, from two top royal reporters who have been behind the scenes since the couple first met," the synopsis says. "Finding Freedom is complete with full color photographs from Harry and Meghan’s courtship, wedding, Archie’s milestones, and many more unforgettable moments."
