Prince Harry may have stepped back as a working royal last year, but that doesn't mean he won't have work to do in U.K. in the near future.

BetterUp, the coaching and mental health company Harry recently joined as chief impact officer, is expanding its operations to the Harry's hometown, reports the Times of London.

"Demand is pulling us into these markets," BetterUp chief executive Alexi Robichaux told the Times. According to the paper, Robichaux also said Prince Harry has "provided some helpful insights and tips" regarding BetterUp's U.K. expansion.

When his new job at BetterUp was announced in March, Harry said in a statement that he hoped "to help create impact in people's lives."

Harry, 36, has been open about his struggles with mental health and revealed that he has been using the company's resources for a couple of months, sharing, "I was matched with my coach who, quite frankly, is truly awesome and has always given me sound advice and a fresh perspective, which is so valuable."

Robichaux, who was introduced to Harry last fall through a mutual friend, called the position a "meaningful and meaty role," though Harry has been on paternity leave since he and wife, Meghan Markle welcome their daughter Lilibet Diana in June. Baby Lili is the younger sister to Harry and Meghan's son Archie, 2.

In a blog post on the app's website, Harry wrote at the time, "Being attuned with your mind, and having a support structure around you, are critical to finding your own version of peak performance. What I've learned in my own life is the power of transforming pain into purpose."
