Speaking about this week’s edition of True Royalty TV’s weekly program The Royal Beat, Royal Daily Mirror editor Russell Myers discusses Prince Harry’s new role as Chief Impact Officer at US coaching company BetterUP.
There is the argument that if he is “Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex” in all published material [the firm], is that trading the royal brand that they said they wouldn’t do to uphold The Queen’s values? he explains.
So it’s very debatable at the moment. The people in the palace will be watching this very, very closely. ‘

On Tuesday, Prince Harry announced his first job in the corporate world by revealing that he had taken a leadership position at a Silicon Valley start-up claiming to be worth $ 1.7 billion.
The Duke of Sussex becomes chief impact officer at BetterUp, a mental health company, where he will help promote an app used by major corporations, including Hilton, Facebook, and Chevron oil company, for the well-being of their workforce to improve.
The company’s CEO, Alexi Robichaux, has declined to say how much the royal family will be paid, although similar positions at other California companies would command a six- or seven-figure salary.

Referring to the Duke of Sussex’s comment about how difficult it was for the couple to access mental health support, Nikkhah says: ‘Harry is the most literate and educated person on mental health I’ve ever met, many years ago. ‘
‘He has connected every organization [mental health] within reach. He talks to them all the time.
He knows about mental health. That’s why I was so moved and confused by those comments he made in the interview that he didn’t know where to go. ‘
Nikkhah then discusses Prince William’s reaction to Harry’s comment about the future King and Prince Charles who both feel ‘trapped’ in the royal family.
[William] does not feel trapped. Harry’s comment really didn’t go well, ‘she explains.
Silicon Valley start-up hired by Prince Harry
What is BetterUp?
BetterUp describes itself as a company that “combines coaching with dynamic and personalized digital experiences to accelerate members’ long-term professional development and drive personal growth.”
In practice, they sell executive coaching and therapy services to individuals and large corporations.
It employs clinical therapists and executive coaches on a contract basis to provide these services.
A blue chip company that recently hired their services received $ 2,000 for six months of unlimited coaching for each employee.
Those who sign up for their app can receive one-on-one video therapy or coaching through the app.
Who founded it?
It was founded by two USC graduates Alexi Robichaux and Eduardo Medina. Robinchaux grew up in Dallas, Texas, and has described how he grew up with his father as a biblical linguist translating from Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew. His mother is an immigrant from Greece who was an executive assistant at Texas Instruments. In high school, he started a nonprofit called Youth Leadership for America.
Medina is also a graduate of the USC and worked at management consulting firms Altamont Capital Partners and Bain & Company before starting BetterUp.
How big is BetterUp?
BetterUp says it has raised a total of $ 300 million in venture capital and claims to be valued at $ 1.7 billion. It has not reported any operating results or profits.
Last year, Robinchaux told Inc that the company had 200 employees and more than a thousand therapists and executive coaches on contract.
The investors include snowboarder Sean White, NBA player Pau Gasol and a range of venture capital firms including frims called ICONIQ Growth, Lightspeed Venture and Mubadala Capital.
Who Invested in BetterUp?
The company names 10 Silicon Valley venture capital firms among its investors, including the UAE’s sovereign wealth fund Mubadala Capital.
It also cites Olympic snowboarder Shaun White and NBA player Pau Gasol as individual investors.
“It didn’t make sense with how William feels…. [William] has come across the men in gray suits, as Meghan and other people called them, but there is a way to work your way through that if you feel strong enough about it. ‘
Royal biographer and editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine Ingrid Seward discusses how comments from private conversations between Meghan and her friends continue to appear in the media, telling the program: that that will really cause a problem. ‘
On the rumor that Meghan could run for president of the United States, Myers told the program: “ It might be conceivable to say that Meghan [political desire] to run for the highest office in the world, but nothing is off limits.
The Americans love her right now, they love both. Nothing is off limits. ‘
Nikkhah jokes, “Should the Queen host Harry and Meghan for a state visit ?!”
