Prince Harry’s role is listed on the company’s website. BetterUp described the Duke of Sussex as a “humanitarian, military veteran, mental wellness advocate, and environmentalist.”

Prince Harry will give his input into “product strategy decisions and charitable contributions, and advocate publicly on topics related to mental health,” the Wall Street Journal reported. It’s unclear how much Prince Harry will be compensated for his role, but CEO Alexi Robichaux told the outlet, “it’s a meaningful and meaty role.”

Prince Harry revealed his goals and hopes for his role in a blog post shared on the company website.”As BetterUp’s first Chief Impact Officer, my goal is to lift up critical dialogues around mental health, build supportive and compassionate communities, and foster an environment for honest and vulnerable conversations,” Prince Harry said. “And my hope is to help people develop their inner strength, resilience, and confidence.”

This is one of many jobs Prince Harry has picked up since making the move to the U.S. The Duke of Sussex also has a partnership with both Spotify and Netflix.
