Hong Kong, SAR—On the heels of their big announcement Wednesday evening, the world is still reeling from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s plans 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.”
According to their post on Instagram, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex along with baby Archie Harrison are now planning to start their next chapter spending time between the United Kingdom and North America. A new charity is apparently in the horizon, but the future is still relatively unclear for the royal couple—especially on how they plan to achieve financial independence.
Enter Lemi, an up-and-coming social platform aimed at providing quality recommendations of experiences for locals and travelers alike. The company was even named as one of “50 Travel Startups to Watch in 2020” by Travel Massive.
In a playful open letter to the royals, Lemi—through their Chief Technology Officer, Matt Mayer, who also hails from Sussex, England—is offering an internship to the Duke and Duchess to possibly help as they transition out of their royal duties.
“We are proud to be an equal opportunities employer and provide chances for people from all walks of life to work together reimagining the future of travel,” says Lemi Founder & CEO Cheryl Ng. “We’re sure that Prince Harry and Meghan would be a great fit for our team. If they impress us during the internship, we’d definitely consider a full time role. Sometimes, we have pizza and karaoke in our Manila office!”
A company that champions local businesses and organizations, Lemi shares the same passion that Prince Harry and Meghan have for the causes close to their hearts.
Will they accept this internship offer? Whatever their answer may be, there’s definitely more to watch from Lemi!
