Meghan, Harry’s link to Clinton team

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry continue to expand their influence in the US, linking up with an adviser from Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election campaign.

Genevieve Roth, who worked as the director of Creative Engagement for the Clinton Campaign five years ago, announced the collaboration on Instagram.

Ms Roth founded the social impact agency The Invisible Hand, which has managed to partner with a number of prominent world leaders, including the Obama Foundation.

Prince Harry and Meghan’s foundation Archewell is the latest to join forces with The Invisible Hand.

“Earlier this year, Invisible Hand joined Archewell on their mission to drive systemic culture change across all communities, one act of compassion at a time,” the foundation said.

“If you’re new around here, welcome.

“Invisible Hand is a social impact and culture change agency that harnesses the power of creativity and storytelling to propel the world forward.”

Ms Roth studied at Emerson College and the Columbia Journalism School.

She helped former US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle launch the government initiative, “Let Girls Learn”.

The Duchess of Sussex often comments on US politics, earlier this year describing the election between Donald Trump and Joe Biden as “the most important election of our lifetime”.

“I know what it’s like to have a voice, and also what it’s like to feel voiceless. I also know that so many men and women have put their lives on the line for us to be heard,” she said.

“When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard.

“Your voice is a reminder that you matter. Because you do. And you deserve to be heard.”

The collaboration between Archewell and The Invisible Hand comes as Prince Harry scored a job as “chief impact officer” at a Silicon Valley start-up.

The Duke of Sussex said he wanted to “create impact” after being named as part of the leadership team with BetterUp Inc – a coaching and mental health firm in the US.

The Wall Street Journal today reported the 36-year-old would take up the “meaty” role one year after he quit the royal family.

“I intend to help create impact in people’s lives,” Prince Harry told the publication.

“Proactive coaching provides endless possibilities for personal development, increased awareness, and an all-round better life.”

BetterUp CEO Alexi Robichaux said while Prince Harry would not manage employees, he was expected to be a part of all-hands meetings and special company events.

Mr Robichaux revealed he had started speaking with the royal last year after being introduced through a mutual friend.
