Prince Harry has secured a new job as chief impact officer at mental health services business BetterUP. Just days after the firm revealed their new employee, the Duke released a motivational message where he urged people to be the “best version of ourselves”. But a royal expert has lashed out at Harry for the comment, and said he comes across as “bitter”.
Prince Harry’s statement, which was shared on BetterUp’s Instagram page, read: “Self-optimisation is not about fixing something that’s broken.
“It’s about becoming the best version of ourselves with whatever life throws at us – someone who is ready for the next challenge and can meet setbacks with courage, confidence and self-awareness.”
Angela Levin, who has written a biography about the Duke, heavily condemned these remarks on Twitter.
She wrote: “Harry’s first comment for his new job is to tell all to get ‘the best version of yourself’.
“Is that what he’s doing.
“Having got what he wanted he comes across as resentful, bitter and shrunken rather than the charismatic intuitive fun loving guy he used to be.”
It’s not the first time the royal expert has spoken out about Prince Harry in recent weeks.
After his interview with Oprah aired, Ms Levin claimed there were “numerous holes” in their bombshell claims.
She questioned the accuracy of the claims the Duke was cut off financially by the Royal Family.
Ms Levin also branded the Sussexes as “self-obsessed” and didn’t think the pair should be publicly discussing private family matters.

7.50am update: Meghan Markle and Harry’s UK future in doubt after bringing ‘hail of fire’ against Queen
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s future in the UK is “highly challenged” following their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, according to an expert.
The fallout from their tell-all will make it difficult for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to return to the UK, according to brand and reputation management expert Eric Schiffer.
He told Express.co.uk: “The future for Harry and Meghan in Britain is highly challenged.”
Mr Schiffer spoke about the claims made by Meghan and Harry during their interview with Oprah as a “rarely seen” charge against the “respected and honoured” institution of monarchy.
He added: “In England, many will feel this was massively disloyal on the part of Harry and that they have decided to bring a hail of fire against the Queen who has dedicated her life to public service and inflicted serious reputational damage on Buckingham Palace that did not need to occur.”
