Prince Harry Can Always Work at Burger King
The fast-food chain has offered the British royal a job.
One week after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their plans “to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent,” it is not yet clear what the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will do to sustain themselves.
Of course, as has been pointed out, they have tons of potentially lucrative options: They could write books, become paid social media “influencers” or launch a clothing brand, just for instance. Meghan could get back into the acting game.
It’s not like they’ll have to flip burgers -- although if Harry is up for it, that is apparently totally an option: A certain popular fast-food chain has already extended an offer for the British Prince to become a Burger King. Yep.
“Dear Dukes, if you are looking for a job, we have a new crown for you,” Burger King Argentina and agency HOY said in an ad that, according to The Drum and Ad Age, ran in Clarin, a tabloid newspaper in Argentina, as well as on Burger King Argentina’s Instagram page. The ad included a link to apply for a job at Burger King – just to make things royally easy, I guess.
Whether by “Dukes,” Burger King Argentina is referring to both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex or perhaps only to Prince Harry using a term of endearment (possible, if unlikely) we cannot say. We can say however that Burger King USA has doubled down on the offer on its Twitter page, posting the message “@ harry, this royal family offers part-time positions” a few days after posting another one: “you always have a job in our kingdom,” with a link to apply.
Well played, King. Your move, Prince.
