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 HBO Max streaming video service.

Reuters reports that “The Prince,” is the brainchild 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 greenlighting 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 dominated British tabloids.

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

A release date has not been set.
