As Meghan is ‘bullied’ out of the UK, a gruesome Prince George cartoon is supported.
THE CONTROVERSIAL CARTOON that cruelly mocks Prince George and other royals has been vehemently defended by one of the players involved, who argues Meghan Markle was treated far worse by the Firm.
In HBO Max’s “The Prince,” an adult animated sitcom created by Gary Janetti, the Royal Family is ruthlessly insulted. The protagonist of the animation is eight-year-old Prince George, who is severely shown as a nasty pampered snob, with the Queen and other royals faring no better. However, Alan Cumming, who plays Prince George’s butler, defended the show, claiming that “it’s not as cruel as people assume.”
Despite the criticism, Mr. Cumming, who was awarded an OBE in 2009, regarded the cartoon as “very sensitive.”
“I don’t know,” the actor said to the Telegraph when asked if the Royal Family would notice the humor.
“If they enjoy satire, they might… It’s actually extremely sweet — my character’s relationship with George is quite nice.
“It’s not as bad as people make it out to be.”
The actor then moved on to Megxit, praising Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for their bold decision to leave the Royal Family.
Mr. Cumming praised the pair for “removing themselves from an unpleasant position, not just putting their heads down and being in ‘The Firm’ and being bullied, which they clearly were,” according to Mr. Cumming. I completely sympathize with them.”
Several prominent pundits have criticized the new comic for insulting the Royal Family and focusing on an eight-year-old royal.
Ryan-Mark Parsons, a commentator, has accused the creators of going “too far,” calling the show “repulsive” and “cringe-worthy.”
Omid Scobie, a royal author, also chastised the creators for focusing on a child.
“It may be billed as a comedy, but it comes across as creepy and borderline bullying,” he remarked.
Princess Eugenie and Prince Harry are “best friends,” leading to hopes that the royal will play a “key role” in bringing the Sussexes back to the UK.
When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex retired from their roles as working members of the Royal Family last year, they relocated to the United States.
Princess Eugenie’s intimate ties to the pair, however, are expected to play a “vital role” in bringing them back to this side of the water, according to Royal experts.
“The Sussexes may be settling into.”Brinkwire Summary News,” columnist Eleanor Steafel said in the Daily Telegraph.
