Duke lands another job as boss praises his attitude

The Duke of Sussex has got another new job – at a US think tank that deals with misinformation and disinformation in the media.

Harry said he would join the Aspen Institute’s new information disruption commission – and expressed concern about an “avalanche of misinformation.”

In a statement, he said, “As I said earlier, today’s digital experience has inundated us with an avalanche of misinformation that affects our ability as individuals and as a society to think clearly and to truly understand the world we live in to understand.

“I believe this is a humanitarian problem – and as such it requires a multi-stakeholder response from stakeholders, media representatives, academic researchers, and government and civil society leaders.”

“I am excited to join this new Aspen Commission and look forward to working on a solution-oriented approach to the information disruption crisis.”

Harry, along with 14 other commissioners and three co-chairs, will conduct a six-month study on the state of the media in the United States.

Mr Robichaux said the Duke “likes to be called Harry in the workplace, so we just address him as Harry”.

He refused to comment on how much the Duke is being paid for his role, and also declined to say how many hours he would work.

Mr Robichaux told Sky News, “We were just so impressed and I really think the insights and contributions he can creatively make to BetterUp to ensure we accomplish our mission have such natural chemistry and synergy .
