The HBO series Prince George has Prince William and Kate’s “regal hands constrained.”
Because they have “zero jurisdiction” over a US-made program, Prince William and Kate are in a difficult position to protest about the portrayal of their son George in the new HBO series “The Prince.”
According to a royal expert, Prince William and Kate are unable to stop Gary Janetti’s new show “The Prince.” The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have “zero jurisdiction over a US-made program” that is now inaccessible on British streaming sites, despite the cartoon series’ unfavorable portrayal of their eight-year-old son Prince George.
“Many have been quick to ask why the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge haven’t issued a complaint, but in truth their regal hands are tied,” royal expert Victoria Arbiter wrote in 9Honey. “Considering eight-year-old Prince George is the adult cartoon’s chief protagonist, many have been quick to ask why the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge haven’t issued a complaint, but in truth their regal hands are tied.
“Americans would be outraged if the British attacked Donald and Melania Trump’s kid, Barron, in the same way, but the royals have no power over a US-produced show airing on a US-based platform.
“Although popular consensus tends to reflect the widespread notion that children should be off-limits, any complaint from William and Kate would simply serve to further publicize what Janetti has incorrectly labeled as a’very hilarious’ program.
“There will be no formal word for that reason alone.”
George’s character looks to be a selfish, self-obsessed influencer with a fondness for royal gossip and a dislike for his brothers throughout the 12 episodes.
The comedy, which was written by Gary Janetti, a co-creator of Family Guy, premiered on July 29 to mixed reviews from critics.
The show’s portrayal of George has been widely panned, with Good Morning Britain host Alex Beresford calling it “cheap” and stating it “certainly crossed a line.”
“Creating a parody to poke fun at an eight-year-old is not funny,” Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu added. It’s uncalled for, because it goes against our sense of community responsibility.”
The show’s portrayal of Prince Philip has also sparked controversy, as his character looks to be on the verge of death and is’re-charged’ overnight by Palace officials.
Prince William may be seen forcing open his mouth to pour tea while the Duke of Edinburgh stands still in one clip.
Gary Janetti had planned to release the comedy in the spring, but it was postponed due to scheduling conflicts. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
