HOW DOES HBO’S THE PRINCE PORTRAY THE ROYAL FAMILY?
The animated series is set from the prospective of 8-year-old Prince George, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s eldest child, and the future heir to the British throne.
Created by Gary Janetti, the show is based off of his meme page of the young Prince and pokes fun at the royals and mocks most of the family members.
In the show, Prince George is portrayed as a sassy and effete royal commentator.
Following the release of the show, it was met with both praise and criticism following the use of Prince George as their main character.
“Bottom line, children are off limits,” women’s rights activist and author Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu said on Good Morning Britain.
“Creating a parody to poke fun at an 8-year-old is not funny. It’s uncalled for, and it goes against our collective sense of responsibility.”
Others have since taken to Twitter to voice their comments about the controversial show.
