The immortalised version of the Duke of Sussex makes a withering dig at Meghan over her ‘wanting to be a princess’ in controversial HBO cartoon The Prince
The Prince Trailer: Drooling Prince Philip depiction criticised
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have once again become the target of a brutal joke in HBO’s controversial cartoon series.
This time, the immortalised version of the Duke of Sussex makes a withering dig at Meghan over her “wanting to be a princess”.
The Prince, which has been created by Family Guy writer Gary Janetti, follows Prince George’s imagined time in Kensington Palace alongside parents William and Kate and other royal family members.
Despite aiming to be tongue-in-cheek, the show has proved to be rather divisive as royal fans slammed it and declared that “children are off limits”.
Yet, Meghan appears to be the butt of yet another joke, which follows a previous episode that poked fun at her ‘feud’ with Kate Middleton.
The third episode, however, sees Meghan, voiced by Condola Rashad, and Harry (Orlando Bloom) practising lines from a script as they speak about jobs.
In the scene, Meghan complains about her acting career, which saw her garner fame through her role as Rachel Zane.
She fumes: “This sucks. On Suits I was a series regular. Attorney at law!”
While Harry responds: “Wasn’t she a paralegal the first six seasons?”
“I don’t know,” Meghan replies as they begin speaking about their childhood dreams.
Harry confesses that he wanted to be a massage therapist and when she probes him on it, he says: “You never had a dream when you were a child to be something everything else said was impossible, like an astronaut or prime minister, or masseur?”
Meghan responds dreamily: “”Ah… I wanted to be a princess.”
Harry then quips: “Oh, well you kind of f***ed that up.”
It comes after Meghan and Harry officially stepped down as senior royals this year, with the pair going on to make explosive claims about royal life in their infamous interview Oprah Winfrey.
Prince Harry admitted that there was “a lot of hurt” between him and his father. His Apple TV interview with the host went on to see him accuse the royals of “total neglect” over his mental health.

He continued to say that his father Prince Charles caused him to “suffer” and didn’t “make it right” for him following his mother’s death in 1997.
Harry also spoke about Meghan’s battles with mental health, saying she would cry into her pillow after ‘smears’ from The Firm, and said he experienced an “element of shame” when he opened up about his difficulties.
“As parents, as siblings, certainly from what I’ve learned, there’s an element of shame we feel because we’re like, ‘How could we not have seen it?’,” Prince Harry said.
