'Aunt Meghan' a draw in royals cartoon

Central Station | 23 Jan 2020

A British royal family satire featuring a cartoon Prince George and his "modern Aunt Meghan" is heading to TV screens.

The animated comedy will be based on an Instagram parody account, which imagines a young George's scathing reactions to news stories about Meghan and the wider royal family.

It will portray the Windsors through "the eyes of George" - the oldest child of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

They and Queen Elizabeth also will be characters alongside notable characters including "his modern Aunt Meghan and Uncle Harry."

The announcement from the HBO Max streaming service comes days after Harry and Meghan's shock exit from life as working royals.

Gary Janetti, whose credits include Family Guy and Will & Grace will write and executive produce The Prince. His Instagram account, which regularly features memes of Prince George, 6, has more than 880,000 followers.

A recent item linked to an article about Harry and Meghan losing their royal titles featured a shocked-looking George with the caption: "Oh my God. They'll be people."

No date has been announced for screening the satire, which will follow May's launch of HBO Max.
