The Duke of Sussex is keeping it casual with his new coworkers at BetterUp.

• Prince Harry refuses to go by any royal title while working with his colleagues.

Prince Harry is dropping the formalities at his new gig and will simply be known as 'Harry'. The Duke of Sussex just landed a coveted position at the mental health company BetterUp, where he'll be raising mental health awareness and supporting people who aim to enrich their lives. But to his coworkers, the Duke of Sussex is just another member of the team.  

"He's a colleague, he's a partner, and so we address him as Harry," the startup's CEO Alexi Robichaux told Reuters. "Obviously there's a stateliness and he's very dignified, but he is very accessible, very genuine, very humble."
