He told The Telegraph: “So for Harry to keep up with his wife, he’s got to find his own name and identity and this is the start.

“He doesn’t need celebrity. When you’re Royal, you’re the biggest celebrity in the world. But what this does is allow Harry to have relevance.”

Meanwhile, it comes after Harry’s new job was revealed following he and Meghan’s departure from their senior royal roles.

In a blog post on the company’s website, the Duke said he hopes to help people develop “inner strength, resilience and confidence”.

He said: “I firmly believe that focusing on and prioritising our mental fitness unlocks potential and opportunity that we never knew we had inside of us.

“As the Royal Marine Commandos say, ‘It’s a state of mind’. We all have it in us.”
