Prince Harry will discuss ‘personal stories and challenges’ in his first appearance of the year at a virtual summit in February, as he continues to make a living away from royal life.
The Duke of Sussex, 38, who currently lives in his $ 14 million mansion in California with Meghan Markle, 40, having stepped down from royal duties, will attend a virtual event on February 3 for BetterUp.
Breaking the news on Twitter, the couple’s journalist friend Omid Scobie wrote: “In his role as Chief Impact Officer at @BetterUp, Prince Harry will join CEO @Arobichaux for a virtual event on February 3 to discuss their “bold commitment” to the company’s new #InnerWork initiative.
“Expect to hear the Duke speak of personal stories, challenges and successes.”
While Harry receives a salary from BetterUp, the company has not disclosed how much he is paid or whether he owns stocks or options.
The announcement could spark speculation, Prince Harry will kick off the year with more explosive revelations. The Duke gave a series of explosive interviews in 2021, in which he revealed an astonishing break up with his father as well as accusing an anonymous member of the royal family of racism.

Breaking the news on Twitter, the couple’s journalist friend Omid Scobie said royal fans could expect to hear the Duke speak about personal stories, challenges and successes.
In a separate tweet on its official social media, BetterUp described its #InnerWork initiative as “a conscious and conscious effort to organize the inner you.”
The tweet continued, “It’s about engaging in activities that recharge, inspire and rekindle your sense of purpose. It’s the work devoted to ordering your mind.
After several television appearances, including interviewing Winfrey and her talking heads in The Me You Can’t See for Apple TV, this interview may offer another glimpse into her private life.
The Royal Family are already gearing up for Harry’s memoir, which is expected to be released later this year.
Last year, the Duke gave a series of explosive interviews, in which he revealed an astonishing rift with his father and accused an anonymous member of the royal family of racism.
Harry has vowed to give an “accurate and entirely true” account of his life, writing as “the man he has become”.
Family life during the breakdown of the Prince and Princess of Wales’ marriage, the period of Diana’s death and its aftermath, Harry’s relationship with Camilla and his former girlfriends will likely be part of the book, which will be eagerly awaited by the readers.
Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah last March sent shockwaves around the world as the couple laid bare the extent of their rift with the firm.
BetterUp: the Silicon Valley start-up that hired Prince Harry
BetterUp describes itself as a company that “combines coaching with dynamic, personalized digital experiences to accelerate members’ long-term professional development and foster personal growth.”
It sells executive coaching and therapy services to individuals and large corporations, and employs clinical therapists and “executive coaches” under contract to provide these services.
A blue chip company that recently employed its services was billed $ 2,000 for six months of unlimited coaching for each employee.
Those who sign up for their app can receive videotherapy or one-on-one coaching through the app.
It was founded by two USC graduates Alexi Robichaux and Eduardo Medina. Mr. Robinchaux grew up in Dallas, Texas, and described growing up with his father as a Biblical linguist who translates from Greek, Aramaic, and Hebrew.
Her mother is a Greek immigrant who was an executive assistant at Texas Instruments. In high school, he started a nonprofit called Youth Leadership for America. Mr. Medina is also a graduate of USC and worked at management consulting firms Altamont Capital Partners and Bain & Company before launching BetterUp.
They accused an anonymous member of the royal family of racism, suggesting the parent asked “how dark their son would be”; said they had been driven out of Britain, in part because of racism; and accused the machinery of the palace of not having supported a “suicidal” Meghan.
Harry has revealed an astonishing breakup with his father, claiming his family had cut him off financially while suggesting the Queen had been misguided and canceled a scheduled meeting at Sandringham.
Meghan also accused her sister-in-law Kate of making her cry; suggested that members of the royal family conspired to ensure that Archie would never have proper title or security; and said officials failed to defend the couple against “racist” comments, while lying to protect other royals.
Meanwhile, the Duke also appeared on Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast in which he compared his life to a mix of The Truman Show – when Jim Carrey’s character finds out his life is a TV show – and being an animal at the zoo.
When asked if he felt ‘in a cage’ during his royal duties, he replied, ‘It’s work, isn’t it? Smile and endure it. Go for it. I was in my twenties and thought I didn’t want this job, didn’t want to be here.
‘I don’t want to do this. Look what it did to my mother, how am I going to settle down and have a wife and a family when I know it will happen again ”.
He added: ‘I’ve seen behind the curtain, I’ve seen the business model and seen how it all works and I don’t want to be a part of it,’ before revealing he was in therapy after meeting Meghan , who “burst” a bubble and he decides “to stop complaining”.
The last time Prince Harry gave an interview from his job at BetterUp, he was criticized on social media as “privileged” and hypocritical after advising people to quit their jobs to boost their sanity.
In December, Harry discussed his role as “Impact Leader” with California mental health start-up BetterUp.
Harry said the world was at the “beginning of a mental health awakening” and spoke of “continuing to pioneer the conversation”.

Social media users on Twitter were quick to criticize the “awakened” prince, who is sixth to the British throne. The couple have a $ 25 million Spotify contract and a $ 150 million Netflix contract.
“Prince Harry says we should all quit R jobs if we’re not happy. What about hospital porters, hotel workers, women and men just grateful to have a job. #princeharry UR so out of touch with real everyday working class people. You’ve become a figure of laughter and embarrassment, ”@ ducchessfake007 tweeted.
“So Prince Harry, multimillionaire, who has never had a good job in his life and never had to worry about paying his bills, says quitting his job brings joy and that is in does good for “self-awareness.” I couldn’t catch it, please anyone, anyone please make this stop! ”tweeted @ helen_spirit1.
Harry had previously had a 10 year career in the British Army where he started as a recruit in 2005 at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst. He was reportedly paid approximately $ 45,000 for his contribution.
BetterUp is based out of these offices in San Francisco, California. Startup’s value topped £ 3 billion after securing new funding from some of Silicon Valley’s biggest players
BetterUp offers companies coaching programs for their employees on topics ranging from mental health to nutrition and parenting. Its app costs around $ 240 per month for each user.
Customers include Google, the Hilton hotel chain, and Warner Bros. movie studio. The company recently announced plans to open an office in London and hire 75 employees.
Harry’s comments come two months after it emerged that BetterUp was worth more than $ 4 billion after securing new funding from some of Silicon Valley’s biggest players.
In October, BetterUp, which hired the Duke as “impact chief” in March, raised $ 291 million from investors – valuing the company at around $ 4.5 billion.
