“South Park” has just picked up another nation full of fans with its brutal takedown of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and their apparent thirst for attention even while demanding “priva-sah.”
The latest “South Park” episode is titled, “The World-Wide Privacy Tour” and features “the Prince of Canada and his wife,” who were clearly modeled after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
During the episode, the Canadian prince and his wife — who look similar to Harry and Markle — go on a worldwide “we want our privacy” tour following a book tour for his tell-all memoir “Waaaagh,” The Daily Mail reported. The cover of the memoir looks similar to that of Harry’s real-life memoir “Spare.” The Markle look-alike then decides the only escape is to move to the small mountain town of South Park, which upsets residents.
The many thinly-veiled swipes at the Sussexes and their constant attacks on the monarchy seems to have earned the animated show new fans in the United Kingdom, with the latest episode being one of the top trending items across the pond.
One person tweeted that the show “makes fun of Harry and Meghan. As usual, they get it, spot on.”
“Amazing right?” another added. “Here’s the one South Park got Spot. On!! And… Look, it’s trending in the UK too.”
