Prince Harry has made his latest appearance from his $14 million mansion as part of a promotional video for BetterUp, which has a rather vague mission of helping the “Whole Person” and focusing on mental health. During his segment, tennis star Serena Williams revealed that Harry has magically solved almost every problem she has and the former prince, who grew up in palaces, complained of experiencing “burnout,” despite never holding a real job and failing to produce a podcast for Spotify after a year.
It’s unclear what a somewhat unemployed royal could offer to the public on the topic of workplace mental health, but he does live with Meghan Markle and they reportedly almost never leave the mansion.
That would be a tough “working” environment for anyone.
The conversation between Harry, Williams and BetterUp CEO Alexi Robichaux, who gave the former royal his imaginary role of chief impact officer, was part of a virtual event meant to “cultivate the power of Mental Fitness through bold commitment to Inner Work.”
In other words, this is a video about how rich, entitled and incredibly privileged people who didn’t work for their money look at real life work.
Harry shared with the audience that he does “experience burnout,” though from what is a little unclear. When it comes to work, Harry has never actually held a real job. He was in the military, but all reports and leaks indicate that he was coddled the entire time.
So, what can he say about work?
At this point, even post Megxit, Harry and Meghan can only put one solid achievement to their name, a single 35-minute Spotify episode. That’s it, and they put that out over a year ago.
How can he “burnout,” if he’s doing nothing but hanging out in Montecito and doing hostage videos from the mansion? Why would he even have merit in this space?
His definition of a 9-5 offers a clue.
“Okay, one of the kids has gone to school. The other one’s taking a nap. There’s a break in our program,” he said. “It’s like, right, it’s either for workout, take the dog for a walk, get out in nature, maybe meditate.”
Must be nice to live in the 0.1%, right?
There are apparently no dishes, vacuuming, laundry, dusting, cleaning or another household task to be done that can only be snuck in during those blessed few minutes when the kids are busy/asleep. I don’t know any working mother who can set everything aside at the drop of a hat and just go “get out in nature.”
This man has utterly no concept or grasp on real life. He has apparently drunk the Montecito Koolaid given to him by Meghan and is now completely in a fantasy world where “work” consists of long contemplative walks on the beach and meditation room where his wife’s speeches and episode of “Suits” probably play ad nauseam.
His grandmother the Queen is likely a little appalled by his venture into new age mediation, and would prefer that he lean on God and his upbringing in the English church for guidance and wisdom.
But thankfully, he is now the most epic problem solver ever, at least according to Serena Williams.
“I know I joke a lot, but Harry’s actually, one of my coaches whenever I see him, he’s always solving all my life’s problems,” Williams said. “So I kind of give that to your BetterUp coach has kind of helped me. So thank you.”
This could be true, but I get the feeling that Meghan and Serena treat him as a bit of a child, congratulating him for finding a pen when they need one. Those are the type of problems he can solve. Anything else is far above Harry’s head.
Either way, this was another example of how blinded Harry is by his wife and current life. He’s living in a fantasy where “work” is walking his dog and he is able to magically solve the problems of one of the world’s best tennis players.
Unluckily for Harry, this delusion will shatter at some point. It always does.
