While it’s hard to picture Prince Harry and Meghan Markle showing up to traditional 9-to-5’s, they’ve made it clear that they intend to re-enter the workforce — and already, major companies are clamoring for their attention. That being said, some offers are more realistic than others. A recent impassioned offer letter from YouPorn got us thinking: What other kinds of crazy jobs has Meghan been offered since Megxit?
We weren’t exactly worried about Meghan and Harry staying unemployed, but we have been wondering what their financial independence might look like. Meghan reportedly has aspirations of directing and producing documentaries, but what else might be on the former Suits star’s horizon?

The truth is, Meghan’s always been able to support herself as a working woman — and it does seem like the job offers are pouring in a tad more for Meghan than they are for Harry. So, will Meghan use her US connections to get Harry a job stateside? Or will he join her on one of the inventive new gigs she’s been offered?
Let’s take a look at all the crazy job offers that have been pouring in for Meghan.
YouPorn has graciously offered Meghan the position of Director of Special Initiatives, to “aid with YouPorn’s philanthropic endeavors.” We obtained a copy of their official offer letter, where the company applauds Meghan’s decision to step back from the royal family and describes the position in detail. “You have proven to be someone that comes up with creative solutions and interesting ways to help make the world a better place,” YouPorn notes, “even in the face of outdated policies and ways of thinking.” Hard to argue with that!
Burger King Argentina jumped on the news of Megxit early, Fox News reports. They released an ad campaign soliciting the departing royals: “Dear Dukes, if you’re looking for a job, we have a new crown for you,” one slogan reads. The company also released a letter: “We have a proposition for you: Do as thousands of people [do] 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.”
Later that week, Burger King US got in on the fun, tweeting: “@ harry, this royal family offers part-time positions.”

As we all know, Meghan recently accepted a voiceover deal with Disney in exchange for a donation to Elephants Without Borders, a wildlife conservation organization. TMZ reported that Harry sold Disney CEO Bob Iger on Meghan’s voiceover skills at the Lion King premiere in July, which means the entertainment giant has been conspiring with the Sussex royals for some time now. While this round of voiceover work will be for charity, we wouldn’t be at all surprised to find out Meghan has future paid gigs lined up with the company.

And if things go sour with Disney, Harry and Meghan have other TV options on the horizon. ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke is ready to offer the Sussex duo a job, reports The Hollywood Reporter. “We have an office waiting for them in the animation studios building should they be looking to produce television,” Burke said, shortly after the news of Megxit broke.
We have no doubt the offers will keep coming — with Meghan’s many skills, this next chapter is full of possibility for the the retreating royal. No matter what she chooses, we’re sure she’ll do great things.
