Animated satire The Prince targets the royal family in new trailer

An animated satirical comedy taunting the royal family has been released in the US, depicting the Queen as a trigger-happy syndicate boss and Prince Charles as a frustrated mummy boy desperate for king.

Created by Family Guy producer Gary Janetti, The Prince revolves around a fictionalized version of Prince George as a child tyrant with expensive tastes, a scathing sense of humor and a vague view of his family — especially his abusive brother Louis.

Prince Harry struggles to grasp the concept of living in an ‘apartment’ after moving to California with Meghan, while Prince William is so entitled to be carried to the toilet by an assistant.

The 12-episode series, which cost £5 million to make, is available to stream in the US starting today on HBO Max. It was originally supposed to premiere in the spring, but was postponed following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh on April 9.

It is currently not available to watch in the UK.

The all-star cast includes Orlando Bloom as Prince Harry, Game Of Thrones’ Sophie Turner as Princess Charlotte and Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens as Prince Philip.

A two-minute trailer shared on Twitter last night offers a taste of what viewers can expect from the irreverent TV series.

Prince Harry comes to terms with his post-royal life when he and Meghan arrive at an LA apartment. He looks around and says to his wife, “This may be the smallest palace I’ve ever been to.”

Meghan corrects him, “Well, it’s an apartment,” to which Harry replies, “Yeah, an apartment palace, I know. Many small palaces in one big palace.’

In another scene, we see senior royals – including Prince Philip – drinking afternoon tea at Buckingham Palace when the Queen is jumping up and down in her chair and yelling, ‘I want a treat, I want a treat, the Queen wants a treat! ‘

Prince George turns to a nearby royal aide and asks: ‘Do you have any tea that doesn’t taste like p***’

Elsewhere you can see Charles Camilla saying 'I want to be king, she let her go, now it's my turn', before running out the door when the queen calls out his name

Prince William is carried out of bed and to the toilet by a servant when he declares that he is ready for as***.

In the trailer’s closing moments, the Queen tells great-grandson Prince George, “Honey, you have no idea how much hard work it is to be head of a state family and syndicate,” before shooting a servant who “scares” her.

An admiring George says, “She’s such a bad b***h.”

There was speculation as to whether the Duke of Edinburgh’s character would be removed from the series after his death, but he still appears in the trailer.

Last year, the animated series’ creators were accused of ‘taking cheap shots’ after a trailer for the upcoming show appeared to make fun of Prince George, with critics saying the young royal could be adversely affected by his portrayal in the eight-part series. .

A producer from rival Disney Studios said: “It’s one thing for filmmakers to play fast and loose with the truth on shows like The Crown, but making fun of a seven-year-old seems cruel and unfair.

“Some things should be banned. It is morally wrong to use a child to laugh cheaply.”

While TV reviewer Katherine Singh said, “It’s important to remember that George is still a kid who has nothing to say about his fate in life.

“What we say about people, even those who seem untouchable like the Royals, can affect people severely and negatively. Prince George is old enough to know what’s going on.”

But Janetti, who first started making fun of the royal family on his Instagram account, defended the show.

He said, “I would hope he would find it super funny and have a sense of humor about it, and see clearly that everything is meant with affection.”
