BetterUp, a Silicon Valley startup, revealed on Tuesday, March 23, that the Duke of Sussex has joined it as its chief impact officer.
Harry's new position was also confirmed to CNN by a spokesperson for the prince.
According to a report by the news outlet, Harry was listed as a member of the company's leadership team on its website.
"It is a meaningful and meaty role," CEO Alexi Robichaux was quoted by the Wall Street Journal.
The startup described him as a humanitarian, military veteran, mental health advocate, and environmentalist.
According to the newspaper, Harry is supposed to have input in product strategy decisions and charitable donations at BetterUp, as well as speak publicly on mental health issues.
BetterUp refused to comment about how much Harry will be paid, according to the newspaper.
In a company blog post, the prince explained why he joined BetterUp, saying he recognised a "common passion" for helping people in Robichaux.
"What caught my attention about BetterUp was that the company's mission to unlock the potential in people everywhere necessitates innovation, impact, and integrity," said Harry.
"Their team has been delivering on that work for years," added the prince.
Harry also stated that he had learned from BetterUp's coaching.
"I've personally found working with a BetterUp coach to be invaluable. I was matched with a truly awesome coach who has given me sound advice and a fresh perspective," Harry said.
Since leaving the United Kingdom, the prince has taken on a new major assignment.
Archewell Audio, a production company established by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, has an exclusive collaboration with Spotify.
Harry joins the startup just weeks after he and Meghan revealed their decision to leave the United Kingdom and step down from senior positions in an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The couple, who live in California, also spoke about how royal life has influenced their mental health.
The former First Lady hopes the Duchess of Sussex and her husband Prince Harry find lasting peace.
She mentioned the importance of family and counts on love being a unifying factor.
