The Duke of Sussex has landed a senior position at a career coaching startup in Silicon Valley.
Prince Harry, who has completely abandoned his royal duties, has been given a senior position at a Silicon Valley company. This was reported on March 23 by The Wall Street Journal.
We are talking about BetterUp, a company that specializes in career coaching and mental health.
вЂњI intend to help make an impact on people's lives. Active coaching provides endless opportunities for personal development, awareness-raising, and comprehensive life improvement, вЂњ Prince Harry commented on the appointment.
According to BetterUp CEO Alexi Robichaud, вЂњ this is a significant and serious position.вЂќ
The publication clarified that the new activity of the prince is something like an adviser on issues of influence. Most often, this position can be found in the non-profit sphere.
At BetterUp, Harry is expected to be involved in a variety of processes, including product development strategies, charity work, and public speaking on topics related to mental health.
The details of the employment agreement were not disclosed. What is known is that Prince Harry will have no subordinates, but he will have to appear at the company's headquarters in San Francisco, take part in meetings and special events.
BetterUp was founded in 2013 and includes a network of more than two thousand coaches. The platform is used by many large companies, including Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc., Chevron Corp., Salesforce.com, and others.
Recall that in early 2020, Prince Harry, who occupies the sixth place in the line of succession, and his wife Meghan Markle announced their intention to abandon the status of senior members of the royal family in order to gain financial independence.
By agreement with Elizabeth II, they lost the right to the title "Their Royal Highnesses" and the right to the SussexRoyal brand. The decision came into force in March 2020.
After the complete retirement of the Dukes of Sussex moved to the United States. Recently, the couple announced that they are expecting their second child and finally confirmed that they do not intend to return to the duties of members of the British royal family.
