Burger King offers Prince Harry a job

Last week, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they would be stepping back as senior members of the Royal Family adding that they will work to become financially independent. While many are wondering what Harry and Meghan will choose to do to pursue that goal, one fast-food chain has an idea.

Burger King on Monday jokingly offered Prince Harry one of its famous paper crowns on social media.

According to Design Taxi, the burger chain’s Argentina branch is also attempting to capitalise on the Sussexes latest announcement or, what some are calling “Megxit.” The Argentina branch of the restaurant chain is running ads promising “a new crown” for the Duke and Duchess.

Burger King’s hourly pay is about $8 USD an hour, according to Glassdoor data.

Like other fast-food chains, Burger King’s Twitter presence can often be seen as cheeky in nature. In 2018, the account tweeted gibberish for hours in an attempt to create excitement for its “cini minis” dessert.

Back in 2015, the chain suggested on Twitter that they partner with their rival McDonald’s in order to build a new “McWhopper” sandwich. That joke took place on World Peace Day.

Along with becoming financially independent, the Sussexes are looking to still continue to honour their duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and their patronages.

Geographically, Harry and Meghan will now be splitting their time between the United Kingdom and North America – a move in which they say will give them the balance to raise Archie with appreciation for “the royal tradition in which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.”

A summit was held at Sandringham earlier this week. The Queen, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry were all in attendance. While plans are not finalised, The Queen did issue a statement saying she supports Harry and Meghan’s decision but would’ve preferred they stayed as working royals.

She also added they will be splitting time between Canada and the United Kingdom during a transition period.
