Burger King has offered Prince Harry a job.
The fast-food chain has put forward a sales assistant position for the 35-year-old royal after he and his wife Duchess Meghan announced that they were stepping down as “senior royals” last week and plan to become “financially independent”.
Burger King Argentina was the first to reach out to the Duke of Sussex as one branch said on Twitter: “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 first 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 up with: “this royal family offers part-time positions.”

Last week, the couple – who have eight-month-old son Archie together – caused a stir within the royal family when 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.”
As previously reported on The Sauce, the couple is looking to diversify their income after announcing plans to leave the Royal Family. It is now believed the couple could draw on the Duchess of Sussex’ connections in the fashion industry.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Meghan is very connected in the fashion industry and there are a lot of major labels who would like to partner with her on projects. There have already been active discussions with Givenchy. Some of these deals could be worth millions of pounds. I’m sure she is going to link some of the initiatives to their foundation.”
