Sometimes you have to take a step back, revert to being a kid again and have a bit of a laugh... and the news of Prince Harry's new job has provided such an occasion.

That is because the Duke of Sussex's new job title is 'penis'. Well, according to Japanese slang it is, anyway.

The 36-year-old has taken on the role of Chief Impact Officer for a coaching and mental health startup called BetterUp Inc. Nothing penis-related about that, you might think, but wait a sec.

The new job is given the acronym of 'chimpo', which again sounds pretty clean on the surface. However, it has a more... well, phallic meaning in Japanese slang.

According to Japanese news site SoraNews24, the term translates to 'penis', with the publication writing: "Yes, that's right-Prince Harry is now a 'chimpo', and you can bet people in Japan weren't going to let the news go without a laugh."

Rightly so. Nor will we.

This is backed up by Urban Dictionary, which defines 'chimpo' as: "A conversationally appropriate slang for man's penis in Japanese language."

Laughing at the term, one person said: "Imagine if he came to Japan and introduced himself as a 'chimpo' to officials? I'd love to see their faces."

Another added: "It doesn't matter what age you are, the word 'chimpo' always raises a smile."

Prince Harry took on the role after moving to California with wife Meghan and their son, Archie.

They have secured lucrative multimillion-pound deals with both Netflix and Spotify, established their philanthropic Archewell foundation, moved into an £11 million mansion in Montecito, as well as Harry's new gig at BetterUp Inc.

Speaking about the appointment, Harry 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."

He continued: "As BetterUp's first Chief Impact Officer, my goal is to lift up critical dialogues around mental health, build supportive and compassionate communities, and foster an environment for honest and vulnerable conversations.

And my hope is to help people develop their inner strength, resilience, and confidence."

BetterUp's CEO Alexi Robichaux added: "As a member of the BetterUp executive team, Prince Harry will expand on the work he's been doing for years, as he educates and inspires our community and champions the importance of focusing on preventative mental fitness and human potential worldwide."

Congratulations are definitely in order. Well done, chimpo.
