For those that are curious what type of company Prince Harry would be working at, BetterUp is a startup that provides both mental health services and coaching to their clients. The company's official website now lists Harry as already part of its leadership team. The description he was given was humanitarian, mental wellness advocate, military veteran, and also environmentalist.
According to the story from CNN, Prince Harry is expected to join the startup just a few weeks after both he and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, gave quite a bombshell interview with the popular Oprah Winfrey. The interview detailed the couple's decision to leave where they were staying in the United Kingdom and also step down from some senior roles in the official British royal family.

The newspaper also noted that BetterUp declined to give a comment when asked how much they would pay Harry.
