The Masters of Scale Summit promises the connect 'forward-thinking, fast-scaling business leaders ...to cultivate innovation'.

The Prince, who works as the Chief Impact Officer for BetterUp, appeared on a panel alongside podcaster Reid Hoffman and BetterUp founder Alexi Robichaux.

The group discussed how the mental-health app can help people achieve 'peak mental fitness', with the Duke telling the summit 'I have a coach. I wish i had two'.

Another attendee and silicon-valley CEO, Kurt Schrader tweeted after the panel:

"Great to hear someone [Prince Harry] who you think grew up with everything talk about the need for therapy and coaching for everyone."

Doron Weber who also watched the panel took to Twitter to praise the Duke too, saying 'saying that while being raised as a royal and serving a decade in the military, he did not hear of "therapy" or "coaching."

"Then the blinkers came off and his life changed," Weber wrote.

Prince Harry's conference appearance came just hours after Meghan Markle's bombshell Variety magazine cover interview.

The Duchess of Sussex spoke to the American publication about a wide-range of issues including 'misconceptions' about her since she married her royal husband in 2018 - especially after the Oprah interview - and claiming their 'love story' had inspired the world because 'people love love'.

Meghan took part in a glamorous photo and video shoot for the magazine where she wore a £4,657 Jason Wu dress and other expensive outfits and was filmed laughing and joking and even lying on her stomach kicking her legs with apparent excitement. She also wore a $2990 Carolina Herrera dress and a $1,560 Galvin gown for the photoshoot.

In a feature headlined 'Meghan Markle Lets Her Guard Down', the Duchess spoke first about her recent trip to the UK with Harry where their tour was interrupted by Her Majesty's death aged 96 on September 8.
