Just cut the cross away from the standard king, and sand the top flat.

This idea of a crown prince (save that it cannot be captured) is given in
'Chess II', made for an 8x10 board, by another author on this site.  For
the record, the twin goals of 'promoting' the prince or checkmating the
king, works VERY well for that board.
