Prince George has recently been at the centre of controversy after being ridiculed in HBO Max’s new animated comedy The Prince. The eight-year-old royal, who is third in line to succeed the Queen as monarch, is claimed to be portrayed as spoilt and sassy in the satirical series.

The show’s 12 episodes are written by Gary Janetti, who is known for the adult animated comedy, Family Guy and the sitcom, Will & Grace.

Baroness Karren Brady has hit out at the new HBO Max series and fumed the network should “hang their heads in shame”.

The 52-year-old spoke out in her latest column, referencing Prince George’s portrayal in the comedy show.

Released last week, The Prince centres around a fictional version of the young royal with expensive taste and a withering sense of humour.

The Prince also features many of the Royal Family’s other core members, who are voiced by a string of Hollywood and British talent.

The Apprentice star has slammed the show and shared it was wrong to take aim at a young child which she claimed was a “Family Guy-style animation”.

“From the clips I have seen, it is offensive drivel. It’s not funny,” Karren stated.

“In fact, the way it portrays the lovely little Prince George is disgraceful.”

She added in The Sun: “Hang your heads in shame, HBO… if you have any, that is.”

George, who is the son of William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, is depicted as somewhat of a child tyrant.

The royal satire landed on HBO Max’s streaming platform last week and was instantly panned by critics, drawing a huge backlash over its targeting of George.

The cast includes Orlando Bloom as Prince Harry, Condola Rashad as Meghan Markle and Frances de la Tour as the Queen.

Other criticism of the show focused on the decrepit portrayal of the late Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, claiming it was “too soon” after his death in April to be parodying him.

Gary confirmed earlier this year that the show was to be pushed back in the wake of the Duke’s death.

Meanwhile, Orlando, who voiced Prince Harry in the series, has defended the new show.

Orlando, who resides in Montecito close to Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, has reportedly sparked up a friendship with the British royal in recent months.

The 44-year-old dished on his new role and admitted he had yet to mention the news to Prince Harry.

Orlando said: “I hadn’t met him when I signed up to do it, and I subsequently met him and he’s such a nice guy and he’s got a great sense of humour.

“I hope he maintains his sense of humour through this because they’re sort of on a pedestal.”

He added to The Hollywood Reporter in August 2020: “We’re showing real adoration to them in one form or another.”
