Burger King on Monday jokingly offered Prince Harry one of its famous paper crowns on social media, just days after the British royal and his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex announced that they intended to "step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family."

According to Design Taxi, the burger chain's Argentina branch is also attempting to capitalize on the widely-publicized "Megxit," running ads promising "a new crown" for the duke and duchess.
The couple stated their intent to "work to become financially independent" and pursue charitable causes in their announcement on Wednesday. Burger King's base hourly pay appears to be around around $8 (R115) an hour, according to Glassdoor data.
Like other fast food giants, Burger King's Twitter presence is often cheeky in nature. In 2018, the account tweeted gibberish for hours in an attempt to drum up excitement for its "cini minis" desert. And in 2015, the chain suggested on Twitter that it partner up with arch rival McDonald's in order to build a new "McWhopper" sandwich on World Peace Day.
