Attention Seeking Couple Who Claim to Want Privacy

The animated comedy South Park lampoons the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the latest instalment of the show. Maybe the ginger beard was the giveaway, and maybe everyone just got tired of the royal (for now) couple's incessant whinging and South Park decided to pick up on the public's apparent mood change regarding the former residents of Kensington Palace.

The episode features the characters the Prince and Princess of Canada, a young royal couple who move to a small town in search of privacy while simultaneously constantly drawing attention to themselves.


The red-headed prince and his wife, who wears a white hat and pink off-the-shoulder dress similar to the outfit worn by the Duchess of Sussex at the Trooping the Colour in 2018, are shown publishing a book, appearing on TV for interviews and embarking on a worldwide “we want privacy” tour.


Creators of the show took multiple thinly-veiled swipes at Harry and Meghan, including featuring a book written by the Canadian prince - titled Waaagh - with a cover that resembles Prince Harry’s memoir Spare - which, by the way, sold almost half a million copies in the UK in its first week on sale, making it the fastest-selling nonfiction book since records began.


The South Park animated comedy series has tackled everything from Scientology to white supremacy in its 25-year history and a short turnaround time to produce episodes has meant that the show can be unusually attuned to cultural discussion and current events.
