Harry to appear with Megans famous pal Serena Williams in first event this year

Prince Harry is set for one of his first public appearances of the year, alongside one of his Meghan Markle's close friends, tennis legend Serena Williams.

He'll be part of a three-person panel alongside the 23-time Grand Slam winner and BetterUp CEO Alexi Robichaux.

Robichaux founded BetterUp in 2013, it's described as “a platform for coaching and mental fitness” and in March last year, it was announced that Prince Harry would be the firm's Chief Impact Officer.

The trio will discuss "cultivating the power of mental fitness through a bold commitment to Inner Work," as part of the California-based company's virtual Inner Work Day, on February 3rd.

They will "share their personal stories and unique perspectives."

Harry shared his opinions on the world of work in a Q&A with Fast Company last December.

He said: "I've actually discovered recently, courtesy of a chat with [BetterUp science board member] Adam Grant, that a lot of the job resignations you mention aren't all bad.

"In fact, it is a sign that with self-awareness comes the need for change. Many people around the world have been stuck in jobs that didn't bring them joy, and now they're putting their mental health and happiness first. This is something to be celebrated."

Harry himself, famously, quit a job he wasn't happy with when he left royal duties in 2020 to start a new life Stateside.

Before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex left for the US, Williams, 40, attended Meghan Markle and Harry's royal wedding in Windsor in May 2018, along with her husband, Alexis Ohanian, and also Meghan's baby shower in New York in February 2019.

  • Princess Diana's 'message from beyond the grave for William to save Harry’

The pandemic has triggered the equivalent of a “dotcom boom for mental health”, Alexi Robichaux said in a chat with FT in August last year.

Robichaux refused to disclose the Prince's salary at the time of the announcement of his role. It is one of several roles he has taken up since stepping back from royal duties.

A huge deal was also announced between the royals and music streaming giant Spotify in late 2020.

The Sussexes reportedly earned millions from the deal, but little has been produced since, while fans and interested observers await keenly for more content.

Only one episode has been produced since the deal was announced with the streaming giant well over a year ago.
