In a statement announcing that he’d be working with the company he explained: “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."

On March 7 and 8, the Duke of Sussex will speak at a two-day BetterUp convention intended for business leaders. While virtual registration for the event is free, attending the event in-person will cost $995 (just over £800).

BetterUp said in a statement that alongside the prince, attendees can expect to hear from US actress Issa Rae, restaurant owner David Chang, athlete Robin Arzón and science author Adam Grant.

They promised: “The immersive summit will feature the exchange of ideas and inspirational conversations delivering unparalleled insights for leaders around talent retention, growth and how to best enable managers to lead high-performing teams through the current climate of change and uncertainty."

There’s been a degree of uncertainty over Harry’s relationship with the rest of his family after the revelations in his blockbuster book, but he says he’s keen to maintain his personal ties – just not so much his official ones.

"I've said before that I've wanted a family, not an institution — so of course, I would love nothing more than for our children to have relationships with members of my family, and they do with some, which brings me great joy," he told People magazine.

"I want people to read my memoir and come to their own conclusions — I don't want to tell anyone what to think of it and that includes my family. This book and its truths are in many ways a continuation of my own mental health journey. It's a raw account of my life— the good, the bad and everything in between."
