The Animated Parody of Harry and Meghan’s Quest for Privacy in South Park

The world of popular entertainment is ablaze with news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have been lampooned in an episode of the animated television series South Park. Titled ‘World Privacy Tour’, the episode pokes fun at the couple as they settle down in a fictional town in search of a more private life.

The show features the couple’s characters stepping off a plane and holding signs that read “we want our privacy” and “stop looking at us” in a desperate bid to escape the public eye. To add to the parody, Harry and Meghan are also seen promoting the Prince’s book ‘Waaagh,’ which bears a striking resemblance to his previous work, Spare.

Following the episode’s release, it was rumored that the couple was considering legal action. However, their spokesperson lashed out at the claims, calling them “baseless and boring.”

Meghan is described in the show as a “sorority girl, actress, influencer, victim,” which seemed to irk her, with sources claiming that she “was annoyed by South Park but refuses to watch it all.” On arrival in South Park, the princess is heard saying, “If we moved here, people would think we’re really serious about wanting to be normal.” Meanwhile, the animated comedy took jabs at Harry’s book, adding to the mockery.

The episode ends with a disclaimer stating that all characters, even those based on real people, are fictional. However, it is clear that the show was depicting the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and many viewers found the representation spot on.

In other news, Harry and Meghan are said to be uncertain about attending the King’s coronation and fear the atmosphere will be as “toxic” as it was during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and funeral. Before agreeing to fly to the UK for the occasion, the Duke reportedly wants to speak to his father, Charles, and brother, William, to clear the air. It’s understood that Harry has had no contact with either since the release of his explosive memoir, Spare, last month.

If the couple does join the 2,000-strong congregation on May 6, they will do so as ‘normal’ members of the family and not take on any special role.
