The Vegan Royale features a plant-based patty, lettuce, and animal-free mayo on one of the chain's signature sesame seed buns
Burger King is launching a buy-one-get-one-free offer to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles this weekend.
The deal will be available throughout the entire bank holiday weekend, from May 6-8.
To claim their free sandwich, diners can order in restaurants or by using the fast food chain’s Burger King app.
In an additional Coronation celebration, Burger King is giving away free limited edition crowns, which it says will ensure diners ‘eat in style’.
According to a Burger King statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, the royale, ‘true to its name is…fit for royalty’.
The sandwich, a plant-based variation of the fast food chain’s iconic chicken burger, is described by the fast-food giant as the ‘crowning glory’ of its plant-based menu.
Developed in collaboration with The Vegan Society and The Vegetarian Butcher, the vegan-certified Vegan Royale consists of a crispy vegan patty, iceberg lettuce, and vegan mayonnaise between a toasted sesame seed bun.

Burger King’s vegan options
The fast food chain currently offers a number of animal-free options, as part of its plan to become 50 per cent meat-free, and reduce carbon emissions by 41 per cent, by 2030.
Apart from the Vegan Royale, these include the Vegan Royale Bakon King, as well as vegan nuggets, the Plant Based Whopper, and the Plant-Based Bakon King.
Announcing the initiative in 2022, chief executive, Alasdair Murdoch, said: “Adapting to customer preferences is a key focus at Burger King.
“We are committed to helping our guests make good decisions about what they eat and drink and providing them with informed choices.”
He noted that the move comes in response to the growing number of Brits looking for meat-free options.
