Burger King offers Prince Harry a job as ‘king’

Burger King has offered Prince Harry a job as its “royal family” following the pair’s announcement they would step down from royal life.

  • It’s all part of a publicity stunt the fast food giant has rolled out in the days after the “Megexit” was announced.
  • “If you’re looking for a job, we have a new crown for you,” reads an ad Burger King ad that began appearing after the announcement.
  • “We have a proposition for you: do as thousands of people and take your first steps in the world of work with us. You know that the crown will suit you perfectly,” it continues.
  • “Also, after so many years of living as dukes, it is time for you to start eating like kings,” it adds before linking to a job application.
  • Harry, officially titled as the Duke of Sussex, is sixth in line for succession to the British throne.
  • The younger child of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, Harry married Meghan Markle, an actress, in 2018, when she became Duchess of Sussex.
  • In early January 2020, Harry and Markle announced they would “step back” as senior members of the royal family.
  • The pair announced they would split time between Canada and the U.K. and also become financially independent of the royal family, which is partially what spurred Burger King’s “offer.”
