Queen Elizabeth II and Prince George’s parents also will be characters - with actors doing their voices of course

Animated versions of Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle will have supporting roles in a British royal family satire that will make its debut on AT&T Inc’s HBO Max streaming video service, the company said on Tuesday.

The Prince, is the brain child of Gary Janetti, a producer on the outlandish animated hit show Family Guy and the groundbreaking sitcom Will & Grace.

The show was inspired by Janetti’s Instagram account with close to a million followers, and explores the life of British royalty through the eyes of six-year-old Prince George, the oldest child of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince George’s parents also will be characters - with actors doing their voices of course.

The green-lighting of the animated series comes as Prince Harry and his actress wife attempt to step out of the limelight and away from their roles in the royal family, a move that has roiled Buckingham Palace and dominated British tabloids.

Janetti will write and produce The Prince. Walt Disney Co’s 20th Century Fox Television is producing the show.

A release date has not been set.
