One of the things that forced Harry and Meghan to step down from their royal duties and leave Britain, probably for good, was their desire to raise their children away from the public eye. As they constantly spoke of the need to lead a quiet life and be left alone by the press, many found it strange that the couple never really stopped exposing details of their privacy with the world. It all started with the now-infamous Oprah interview during which the Sussexes accused the members of the Firm of racism and mistreatment among the rest.

From that moment on, the couple, who now reside in sunny California, never stopped giving interviews. They secured a five-year $100 million production deal with Netflix, which released their documentary recently, and made deals with Spotify.

However, as much as they want to share details of their lives and speak of the members of the Firm, Harry and Meghan definitely don’t want to be talked about.

In one of the latest episodes of the adult television series South Park, the Sussexes found themselves the subject of a number of jokes, and apparently, they were far from happy because of it.

This isn’t the first time the series to mock celebrities such as Rod Stewart, Tom Cruise, and Donald Trump.

The episode in question starts with a scene from the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II and shows two characters, based on Harry and Meghan, walk past a candle that looks identical to the one talked about last fall, supposedly blocking Meghan from the cameras. Claims were that the royals had done it intentionally, and the scene in the series was clearly a nod to the Duchess.

South Park is without a doubt one of the most successful series there are. It first aired back in 1997 and it’s still on.

In the episode, the writers also included the Sussexes all-tell interview with Oprah, but this time, their animated characters were shown visiting Good Morning Canada. Further, they mocked the royals for wanting privacy, but yet, they tend to be under the spotlight. Meghan’s animated character is seen holding a sign which reads, “Do not look at us,” while Harry says, “We do not want privacy.” When the host asks Harry’s character if he hates journalists, the Prince answers, “That’s right, we just want to be normal people – all this attention is so hard.” The two then storm off the stage.

When meeting a “brand manager” in the episode, he labels Meghan as a “sorority girl, actress, influencer and victim,” while Harry is branded a “royal prince, millionaire, world traveller victim.”

The show then mocked the royals decision to leave Britain, and in the episode, instead of California, the couple moves to South Park, but the residents aren’t delighted because of that. “If we moved here, people would think we’re really serious about wanting to be normal,” Meghan’s character said.

One of the show’s characters, Kyle, then complains that the Duchess “bosses him around” and could be heard saying, “I’m sick of hearing about them! I can’t get away from them!”

Kyle also states: “They have this huge jet parked in front of my house and they keep on wanting me to buy their book,” referring to Harry’s all-tell memoir Spare.

However, as much as this episode brought laughter at the viewers, Harry and Meghan seemed to be left utterly upset.

A person close to the couple revealed that Meghan has been “annoyed by South Park but refuses to watch it,” and added that she was “upset for days” and “underwhelmed.”

According to royal expert Neil Sean, the couple has been so unhappy with the episode that they are even considering suing the writers of the show.

“Their legal team are casting an eye over the episode to see what is wrong, and what could be turned into something more sinister. This appears to be their course of action rather than laughing it off, enjoying the moment and showing the world that they get the joke,” Sean told Fox.

The couple’s spokesperson said that the reports of Harry and Meghan being angry of how they were portrayed in South Park are untrue. “It’s all frankly nonsense. Totally baseless, boring reports,” the spokesperson told The Guardian.
