Prince Harry has landed a senior role as Chief Impact Officer at a US mental health firm, BetterUp. According to the Silicon Valley start-up’s website, the Duke of Sussex will be helping to “lift up critical dialogues around mental health, build supportive and compassionate communities, and foster an environment for honest and vulnerable conversations”. Royal commentator Charlie Rae and talkRADIO host Mike Graham joked about the update on-air.

Mr Graham quipped: “There is one job description that I presume they would have maybe questioned.

“It says here: ‘One should have a reputation as a strong team player, known for collegiality and predisposition to work collaboratively’.

“I’m assuming they’re not going to get a reference from the Royal Family then?”

Mr Rae agreed: “No, I don’t think any references will be coming from the Royal Family.”

He continued: “I also see that he’s going to be working across everybody, bringing people together, making things sweet and everything else.

“I don’t think it actually says that includes tabloid media newspapers.”

Mr Graham also speculated about how much the Duke may be making from his new job.

There has not been any confirmation as of yet.

Mr Rae told listeners: “The point is, he is sixth in line to the throne at the moment.

“His links with the Royal Family make him a good catch for lots and lots of companies.

“They’re getting lots of free publicity for the fact that he and Meghan are associated with them.”

Forty-eight hours after his BetterUp announcement, it was confirmed that Harry had landed another job.

The Duke will be joining the Aspen Institute’s new ‘Commission on Information Disorder’.

In a statement, the royal wrote: “As I’ve said, the experience of today’s digital world has us inundated with an avalanche of misinformation, affecting our ability as individuals as well as societies to think clearly and truly understand the world we live in.

“It’s my belief that this is a humanitarian issue and as such, it demands a multi-stakeholder response from advocacy voices, members of the media, academic researchers, and both government and civil society leaders.

“I’m eager to join this new Aspen commission and look forward to working on a solution-oriented approach to the information disorder crisis.”
