Prince Harry has taken on another new job, this time combatting disinformation.
He will start work with the Aspen Institute as a commissioner at their new Commission on Information Disorder.
The organisation lists him in a bio announcing his new role as ‘a humanitarian, military vet, mental wellness advocate, and environmentalist’.
It comes the day after he was announced as taking on a new job at a start-up coaching firm based in Silicon Valley.
Speaking about the role announced today, he voiced his concerns over an ‘avalanche of misinformation’.
He said in a statement: ‘As I’ve said, the experience of today’s digital world has us inundated with an avalanche of misinformation, affecting our ability as individuals as well as societies to think clearly and truly understand the world we live in.
‘It’s my belief that this is a humanitarian issue – and as such, it demands a multi-stakeholder response from advocacy voices, members of the media, academic researchers, and both government and civil society leaders.
‘I’m eager to join this new Aspen commission and look forward to working on a solution-oriented approach to the information disorder crisis.”
Harry will join 14 other commissioners and three co-chairs in conducting a six-month study on the state of the media in the US.
He will also become chief impact officer for BetterUpInc in California, after he and wife Meghan Markle stepped back from the Royal Family last year.
He told The Wall Street Journal he wanted to use the role to ‘create impact in people’s lives’.
He went on: ‘Proactive coaching provides endless possibilities for personal development, increased awareness, and an all-round better life.’
Harry will not be directly managing employees as part of his role, but is expected to be a part of meetings and special company events, the organisation’s CEO Alexi Robichaux said.
The company said while announcing his hiring: ‘As co-founder of Archewell, [Harry] is focused on driving systemic change across all communities through non-profit work as well as creative activations.
‘The mission across Archewell—which currently includes Archewell Foundation, Archewell Productions, and Archewell Audio—is united behind the deeply held belief that compassion is the defining cultural force of the 21st century.
‘Prince Harry has dedicated his life’s work to advancing causes that he is passionate about.’
