Prince Harry says quitting job 'brings joy' after abandoning Royal Family with Meghan Markle

WOKE Prince Harry has said that quitting your job can bring “joy” and should be “celebrated” – nearly two years after abandoning life as a working royal.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex chose to step down as members of the royal family in January 2020 and have begun carving out a new life in the US.


But now Harry, 37, claims that the rise in job resignations during the coronavirus pandemic isn’t “all bad” and he is pleased that people are putting their mental health and happiness first.

He was speaking as chief impact officer for professional coaching and mental health firm BetterUp – one of many ventures since leaving the royals.

Talking at their event he said: "I've actually discovered recently, courtesy of a chat with 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.

"While on the surface it looks like these last couple of years brought all these issues to the foreground, the reality is these struggles and issues have been brewing for quite some time.

"We're just at the beginning of the mental health awakening."

San Francisco-based BetterUp is valued at 4.7 billion dollars and Harry's role, which he took on in March, includes product strategy, philanthropy, and public advocacy related to mental health.

The Prince previously opened up about his mental health earlier this year in a documentary with Oprah Winfrey – claiming that his family showed “total neglect” for his mental health woes.

He spoke about his struggles with his mental well-being and the trauma that haunts him after the death of mother Princess Diana.

Both Harry and Meghan have talked openly about their struggles with mental health.

Meghan, 40, told Oprah during their bombshell interview that she had been struggling with suicidal thoughts after joining the Firm.

Harry’s comments come just hours after he was accused of making his father look foolish as he tried to distance himself from a cash for honours scandal.

The Duke released a statement yesterday insisting he cut ties with a controversial Saudi billionaire at the centre of Prince Charles’ honours probe because of “concerns over his motives”.

He reportedly took a £50,000 charity donation in 2013 from Mahfouz Marei Mubarak bin Mahfouz — who hinted that he would give millions more.
Prince Charles yesterday said he was prepared to speak to police about the scandal.

He said he had no knowledge of any deal between Fawcett and Mahfouz.
