No matter how hard you’ve been trying to avoid it, ‘Megxit’ has been one mess to another, as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have set about separating themselves from the British Royal family, and the British press have been eating them alive for it (even though they seem to have given Prince Andrew a free pass??), all going back to when the Sussexes posted an announcement of their departure on Instagram, apparently without consulting the Queen first.

“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. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
Since the Sussexes made their intention to move to North America clear, brands have been chomping at the bit to get a piece of them, meaning their escape from the press might be short-lived. Best of all, Burger King offered him a part time job flipping burgs.
@ harry, this royal family offers part-time positions

Making the offer on Twitter, the image of the prince trading royal garb for a stained apron and a spatula in a small-town Canadian Burger King is tantalising. With his wife supposedly receiving huge offers for work from brands like Disney, I don’t think they’ll exactly be in need of part time cash. Who knows though, if they’re looking to disappear from the public eye, maybe the burger-flipping shift work is exactly what he wants?
With his Invictus Games for wounded, injured and sick veterans already booked in as far ahead as 2022, it looks like he’ll be busy for a while yet with remaining duties.

Here we come Düsseldorf 🇩🇪! The new home for the 2022 and sixth Invictus Games. Having previously been held in London, Orlando, Toronto, Sydney, and upcoming The Hague this year in May – Düsseldorf will welcome over 500 competitors as they showcase their talents, determination and camaraderie to the world! The #InvictusGames is an international adaptive multi-sport event, created by The Duke of Sussex, in which wounded, injured or sick (WIS) armed services personnel and veterans show the world what they’re capable of in a series of adaptive sports, ranging from wheelchair basketball to indoor rowing. The Duke, having spent 10 years serving in the Armed Forces, set up the @WeAreInvictusGames to celebrate the power of sport rehabilitation (both physically and mentally) and to generate a wider appreciation for those who served their country beyond their time in uniform. Participating in the Games plays a significant part in the recovery journey of WIS Servicemen and women. It doesn’t just heal the individual, it heals the whole family. • “I hope everyone in Germany is ready for what will be an incredible week of sport! I have no doubt that the German public will get right behind these Games and that every single competitor can expect a warm welcome and an amazing atmosphere.” – The Duke of Sussex For more information of the announcement, visit https://invictusgamesfoundation.org/ig2022-announcement/ Video © @WeAreInvictusGames
