Meghan Markle: Royal expert lays out Duchess’ next decade
The Duke and Duchess turn up at Buckingham Palace after their TV ventures fail. An irritated Queen allows the couple to stay in “a room with my exercise bike in it”.
The scene is from The Prince, a new satirical cartoon made by HBO.
Royal fans have already hit out at the show, branding it “distasteful” and “disgusting”.
It was created by Gary Janetti, who previously worked on hit comedy Family Guy.
In one episode the Sussexes are depicted arriving back at Buckingham Palace, with Archie strapped to his father’s chest.

The Queen is shocked to see them, asking: “What the f**k are you two doing here?”
Harry, with his arms wide open, replies: “Hello grandmother, we’ve returned.”
The British monarch responds: “Well what kind of pact, you snooze, you lose.”
At this point Meghan intervenes, stating: “It’s just for a few weeks while we get back on our feet.”

The Sussexes later tried to launch a home makeover show, called ‘Royally Screwed’, where they transformed houses “from drab to fab”.

“It’s uncalled for, and it goes against our collective sense of responsibility.”
Royal author Omid Scobie tweeted: “Royals have been parodied on dozens of shows over the years (Spitting Image, The Windsors, SNL etc) but this is the first time I can recall children being targeted.
“It may be “comedy” but it comes across as creepy and borderline-bullying.”
