Prince Harry has landed his first paid job after confirming earlier this year that he and Meghan Markle will not be returning to life as a royal. The couple moved to Canada last year before settling in their $14.7million (£10.7million) home in California. How much is he earning for the role and what is his net worth?
The Duke of Sussex has been appointed Chief Impact Officer at BetterUp, a professional coaching and mental health firm.
Prince Harry has said he is “really excited” to have started the new role, where he aims to “lift up crucial dialogues around mental health”.
The company’s app is used by corporate giants like Facebook and Google to improve the mental health of its staff.
BetterUp was co-founded in 2013 by Alexi Robichaux, who said the idea came to him while on a pilgrimage in Spain.

How much are Prince Harry and wife Meghan actually worth?
In the interview with Oprah, Harry revealed that he took on multiple deals like Netflix and Spotify after being cut off financially by the Royal Family.
The Prince said deals with the streaming giants were “never part of the plan”, but he needed the money to pay for his and Meghan’s security.
However it is estimated that the couple have a combined net worth of £23million.
While it has never been disclosed how much Prince Harry received in inheritance from his mother, it is believed to be worth £10million.
The fund was put in place for both Harry and his brother William to inherit when they each reached their 30th birthdays.
The Duke is also said to have had an allowance from his father, Prince Charles, as well as being paid for serving in the Air Force.
Harry and Meghan signed a Spotify deal last year where they will produce and host their own podcasts through their production company, Archewell Audio.
The deal was said to be worth up to an eye-watering $25million (£18.2million).
What’s more, the couple also signed up to a deal with Netflix which is also thought to have added to their net worth.
