It looks like Prince Harry and Meghan are in the sights of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, judging by a teaser clip for this week’s episode of the long-running Comedy Central show.
According to the description of episode two of season 26, entitled The Worldwide Privacy Tour, “The Prince of Canada and his wife try to find privacy and seclusion in a small mountain town.”
In the teaser clip, Kyle can be seen telling his friends, “It’s seriously driving me nuts. I’m tired of hearing about them, but I can’t get rid of them! They are everywhere. In my f*****g face.’
His best friend Stan replies, “Look, Kyle, we just don’t care about some stupid prince and his stupid wife.”
The episode comes just after Prince Harry completed the press tour for his memoir Spare and on top of the couple’s Netflix docuseries Harry & Meghan and Meghan’s podcast Archetypes launching as the couple continues to ask for privacy.
The episode is called The Worldwide Privacy Tour and airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m
The first episode of the adult cartoon addressed the anti-Semitic outbursts of Kanye West, who is represented by Cartman’s invisible friend, Cupid Ye, and also mocked TikTok’s meteoric rise.
Some of South Park’s targets over the years include religions such as Christianity, Islam and Scientology, as well as climate change deniers, cryptocurrencies, Phil Collins, Tiger Woods, smoking bans, “Game of Thrones” and pedophiles.
Since the first episode of the Peabody Award-winning show in 1997, Parker and Stone have blurred the line between good and bad taste, even more so than that other long-lived adult cartoon, The Simpsons.
South Park ran a cartoon Jesse Jackson insisting on having his butt kissed by Kyle’s father to apologize for his use of a racial slur and depicted Jesus Christ defecating on former President George W. Bush and the US flag.
A common target is celebrity pontification, as when it was revealed that U2’s Bono is the world’s biggest turd.
But Parker and Stone only like to skewer powerful celebs, showing a surprisingly tender side to Brittney Spears, who was blown off her own head in an episode, but the music industry keeps letting her perform.
In 2011, Parker and Stone used the fictional Canadian royal family as a replacement for the British royal family in an episode titled Royal Pudding, which focused on Prince William’s marriage to Kate Middleton.

Prince Harry told the Telegraph newspaper last month that he didn’t include everything that happened between him and his brother and father in his memoirs because they would “never forgive” him.
Last month, Prince Harry told the Telegraph newspaper that he hadn’t included everything that happened between him and his brother and father in his memoirs because they would “never forgive him,” adding that he had enough material for another book .
In the book, Harry chronicles the long-standing tension between himself and his brother, culminating in William, who is heir to the throne, knocking him to the ground during a 2019 argument over Harry’s American wife, Meghan.
In the interview with the Telegraph published Friday, Harry said an initial draft of the 800-page book had been pared down to just over 400 pages, and that he had shared some incidents with his ghostwriter, JR Moehringer, without intending them to see. published.
“It could have been two books, so to speak,” he told the paper.
He said it was impossible to tell his story without revelations about the other members of his family.
“But some things happened, especially between me and my brother, and to some extent between me and my father, that I don’t want the world to know about,” he said in the interview.
‘Because I don’t think they would ever forgive me. Now you could say that some of the stuff I’ve put in there, well, they’ll never forgive me anyway.”
Harry also said in the interview that he was concerned about William’s kids, saying he felt “a responsibility knowing that out of those three kids, at least one will end up like me, the spare.” And that hurts, that worries me.’
He said he felt this way despite William making it clear to him that “his children are not my responsibility.”
Royal family spokesmen have not commented on the claims made in the book or in the series of interviews Harry has given to promote it.
In just one week, Spare sold more than 3.2 million copies worldwide after just one week of publication and is likely to rank among the best-selling memoirs of all time.
Penguin Random House announced last month that Prince Harry’s memoirs sold 1.6 million copies in the US alone.
