Will the Duke and Duchess of Sussex Step Up their Engagements?

Given the media announcement today that Prince Andrew is 'stepping back' from Royal duties in the light of his name being connected to the Jeffrey Epstein human trafficking / sexual exploitation criminal investigations I wonder if Meghan and Harry will either volunteer or be asked to increase their Royal engagements?
Duke and Duchess of Sussex - increase their duties? - Prince Andrew Stepping Back
The statement by Prince Andrew published on the Royal Circular web-site today reads:

"It has become clear to me over the last few days that the circumstances relating to my former association with Jeffrey Epstein has become a major disruption to my family’s work and the valuable work going on in the many organisations and charities that I am proud to support. Therefore, I have asked Her Majesty if I may step back from public duties for the foreseeable future, and she has given her permission.

I continue to unequivocally regret my ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein. His suicide has left many unanswered questions, particularly for his victims, and I deeply sympathise with everyone who has been affected and wants some form of closure. I can only hope that, in time, they will be able to rebuild their lives. Of course, I am willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations, if required."

Despite the often unfair media criticism of Meghan and Harry one thing they do have is bucket loads of compassion and a connection with people who find themselves in less fortunate circumstances.
