Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now facing a new round of mockery from another animated series, this time from Seth MacFarlane’s series Family Guy.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down as senior members of the Royal Family in 2020, citing their wish for a more private life as one of the main reasons for their decision to leave the UK.

Despite this, the couple never seem too far away – with their presence very much, in the public domain.

As well as making the news on a regular basis, Harry and Meghan have also been mocked many times on various television shows, as well as on social media.

Here looks at the seven times the couple have been the butt of the joke on TV – including their latest instalment.

Family Guy

Harry and Meghan have been subjected to yet another humiliating attack, this time on the cartoon satire Family Guy.

The latest episode of the popular TV series, which aired on Sunday, mocks the couple by poking fun at the pair’s lucrative deal with Netflix.

The scene also implies that influencing is one of the only ways that the couple can make money.

During the episode, a servant is seen walking up to the couple on sun loungers with an envelope, telling them: “Sir, your millions from Netflix for no-one knows what.”

Harry responds: “Put it with the rest of them.”

Earlier this year, the couple were mocked by long-running American sitcom South Park.

The episode, which aired back in February, began with the news that the Queen of Canada, who bared a resemblance to the late Queen Elizabeth II, had died.

A young couple – who mirror the Sussexes – are shown attending the funeral, but are booed by the rest of the family for “bashing the Canadian monarchy”.

Then appearing on a breakfast television show, the couple are seen holding placards which read “we want privacy” and “stop looking at us”.

Spitting Image

Back in 2020, just a few months after their decision to step down as senior royals, the pair were mocked on the British TV show Splitting Image.

The show, which sees outlandish puppets act out bizarre storylines, also saw the late Queen and Charles and Camilla make an appearance.

Spitting Image is previously known for its antics, but had returned for a new series with the Sussexes in the firing line.

In one scene, Harry is seen with a box of crowns, asking his wife if they can “go in the recycling bin”.

Meghan can then be heard telling him to “toss them on the goodwill pile”.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

American talk show host Jimmy Fallon has spoken about the couple on his show numerous times, often using his humour to poke fun at them.

In one episode, Jimmy was seen mocking Harry, suggesting that his and Meghan’s story has been repeated so many times.

Shortly after Harry’s 60-minute interview was released earlier this year to promote his memoir Spare, Jimmy said that watching the chat is a “great chance to hear Harry and Meghan’s story”.

He then added: “In case you missed their two-hour sit-down with Oprah or their six-part Netflix documentary”.

HBO’s The Prince

American animated sitcom The Prince began airing on HBO in 2021.

The show includes all members of the Royal Family, including the Sussexes, Prince William, Princess Kate and their children.

In one episode, Harry is seen asking his wife what they will do next, seemingly mocking the end of the couple’s royal careers – as well as Meghan’s former acting career.

Harry says: “What are we going to do, can you get another show. I mean, not one that you act on darling, I know people don’t want to hire you for that anymore.”

Meghan replies: “HGTV did call my agent last week about us, but, at the time, I thought we were too good for them.”

Channel 4’s The Windsors

Channel 4 released their own show based on the Royal Family back in 2016 – The Windsors.

With Harry and Meghan’s relationship only being made public the following year, their joint appearance on the show came at a later date.

In one scene, Harry can be seen telling Meghan that he had offered a producer a knighthood in exchange for helping Meghan find work.

Meghan’s character is upset by this, telling Harry that if she “is to make, I mean really make it, it’s needs to be because of who I am, not who I know”.

She is seen storming off, telling him that she is going back to Los Angeles and that he is welcome to join her.

The Late Late Show With James Corden

Following the release of Harry’s book back in January, James Corden appeared to use this an opportunity to mock the former royal.

In one episode, James is telling the viewers how President Biden is planning a trip to California to to visit areas “devastated by extreme weather” – and while he is there, he will “check in on Harry’s frost-bitten penis”.

Despite this, Harry is known to get along well with James Corden, who is originally from the UK.

He used a part of his show two years ago to interview the Duke about his life post-royal life.
