South Park takes aim at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in the show’s 26th season.
In the season’s second episode, titled Worldwide Privacy Tour, the Prince and Princess of Canada (modeled after Harry and Meghan) conduct TV interviews and set off firework displays around town in a demand for privacy.
In the episode, the couple appear on Good Morning Canada to promote their book titled Waaagh. “We just want to be normal people, all this attention is so hard,” the characters remark.
After the episode was released in the US last week (February 15), Harry and Meghan have denied rumours they are suing the show over the depiction. “It’s all frankly nonsense,” a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess said. “Totally baseless, boring reports.”
