Burger King offers Prince Harry a job
Burger King has offered Prince Harry a job.
The fast-food chain has kindly put forward a proposition, as they offered the 35-year-old royal and his wife Duchess Meghan a job at one of their franchises after the couple announced they were stepping down as “senior royals” and plan on becoming “financially independent”.
Burger King Argentina was the first to reach out to the Duke of Sussex as they tweeted: “We found out that the prince and the duchess decided to give up their roles in the royal family and will work to become financially independent.
“So, we have a proposition for you: Do as thousands of people and take your steps in the world of work with us.
“You know that the crown will suit you perfectly. Also, after so many years of living as dukes, it is time for you to start eating like kings.”
Burger King US later followed suit, by saying: “This royal family offers part-time positions.”

Last week, the couple dropped a bombshell after they announced plans to “carve out” new roles.
They said: “After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.
"It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into 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."
