Twitter has once again taken humour to the next level after commuters shared an advert for a handyman bearing a striking resemblance to the Duke of Sussex.

The ad, which appeared on the tube across London, shows a ginger-haired tradesman screwing a bolt into a wall and travellers were quick to point out the man’s uncanny likeness to the royal.

"Looking for a vetted, local, tradesperson? Post your job for free," the advert reads.

Many Twitter users took to the platform with the quip that the prince had found a job quite quickly after his resignation from the royal frontline as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have decided to step back from their positions as senior royals.

"Well, Prince Harry certainly found himself a new job quickly," one Twitter user said.

"Fair play to Harry, he didn't hang about on his mission for financial independence #Megxit," another wrote.

"Not the route I thought he’s taken," a third piped in.

According to Express, since their decision to exit royal life, the couple have been the punchline of many commercials' joking.

The Italian branch of popular furniture maker Ikea jumped at the opportunity to poke fun with an ad that promotes cardboard moving boxes hinting at the royals' move to Canada.

The post to their Instagram account, "Meghan, Harry. We understand you, we are made to change."
