The American cartoon satire series South Park made fun of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as its 26th season premiered on CBS. The couple was once again attacked in the second episode of the show, The Worldwide Privacy Tour, which featured the Prince and Princess of Canada travelling the world. Now a statement has been made by their representative.
Without using their names precisely, the show made fun of the couple's desire for seclusion. The second episode, introduces a red-headed prince and his bride, who also dons a look that is eerily similar to one of the outfits Meghan Markle has previously worn.
The two are also seen in the episode advertising the prince's new book, named Waaagh, which has a striking resemblance to the newly released, contentious memoir by Prince Harry, Spare. Soon after, clips from the episode quickly became popular on social media.
American Journalist and media personality Megyn Kelly remarked on the topic on The Megyn Kelly Show and said: "I feel this is a pronouncement that they have jumped the shark, they are not beloved and her hopes of running for president, reported hopes, are all but dashed."
The Spectator reported that the duchess of Sussex was "upset and overwhelmed" by the episode and "annoyed by South Park but refuses to watch it all," and that the fresh roast had not gone over well with the newlyweds.
It has also given rise to rumours about possible legal action the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may take against the program's creators. Nonetheless, their spokesperson has stated that they have decided to do nothing. According to the spokeswoman, "This is baseless and boring."
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle running out of support from America?
Is Prince Harry and Meghan Markle losing their appeal in America? According to reports, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are particularly worried about losing their status as national celebrities.
The pair travelled to California and has been residing there for some time after resigning from all of their royal obligations. Recently, rumours surfaced that they would stay in the UK permanently.
As a result of their PR stunt and attacks on their own royal ancestors, it appears that they are now having difficulties in America as well. Several TV presenters have been making fun of them on multiple occasions.
The pair's plan to reclaim their former fame has failed miserably after numerous efforts and successful shows.
