Prince Harry slammed by US life-coaching company staff after 100 employees are let go – while the Duke rakes in ‘seven-figure salary’ as ‘chief impact officer’
- Harry reportedly earns seven figures as chief impact officer of BetterUp
- But employees have said that his day-to-day responsibilities consist of ‘zero’
Staff at a life-coaching company have started questioning the Duke of Sussex’s work there.
They have turned on the Duke – who reportedly earns a seven-figure salary as chief impact officer – after more than 100 San Francisco-based BetterUp employees were laid off last week.
The staff claim he has become a ‘distraction’ with one concluding that with Harry ‘the juice isn’t worth the squeeze’.
Another BetterUp employee was asked about Harry’s day-to-day responsibilities.
‘From what I see I’m going to go with zero things,’ he replied.

Their lucrative Spotify deal was axed and Meghan was criticised by top Hollywood agent Jeremy Zimmer as ‘not a great audio talent, or necessarily any kind of talent’.
Commentator and Royal podcast host Kinsey Schofield advised the couple to change direction and explore reality television.
She said it would give people an authentic insight into their lives and ‘would take all of the power away from these tabloids and paparazzi that Harry and Meghan claim to loathe’.
Controversy over an alleged car chase in New York in May is also said to have damaged the couple’s reputation in the States. Mitchell Jackson, a celebrity publicist, claimed the couple had too much baggage and organisers of red carpet events were wary of their clients being overshadowed.
He said for those promoting a film or fashion product the ‘problem with Meghan and Harry is after the whole car chase thing in New York, people just feel like they’re untrustworthy and melodramatic and it’s just going to revolve around them and they will distract from what they’re trying to promote’.

According to US website The Daily Beast, the Duke has now become a ‘target’ for angry BetterUp staff. A former employee said he initially thought Harry’s arrival was ‘cool’.
But they added that staff soon began to find him a distraction with many fearing his ongoing dramas might impact on the company’s reputation.
The employee said: ‘Every article mentions his role at BetterUp then goes on to roast [him and Meghan Markle]… The juice isn’t worth the squeeze.’
Another said the company treat staff poorly while pushing woke credentials.
‘We’re all there because of the same bull**** story they keep telling us: ‘We’re mission driven, and the mission is going to change the world’,’ said the employee. Harry’s publicly known work at BetterUp appears to mostly comprise of speaking engagements.
In March, he appeared at the company’s ‘Uplift’ conference where he talked about ‘what gets me out of bed every day’.
At another event he spoke about the dangers of burnout and how he likes to meditate.
Schofield said: ‘The more and more we get to know Harry and Meghan, we realise that they speak in extremes and that all of their descriptions are a little bit exaggerated.’
