Another blow for Prince George of Cambridge. Heavily criticized for his attire when he appeared in the stands at Wembley last July, William and Kate’s eldest once again made the headlines by appearing in The Prince, a satirical animated series centered on the British royal family . Released on July 29 on HBO Max, the sitcom paints an unflattering portrait of the monarchy and in particular of Prince George, who appears as an egocentric and capricious little boy.
Since its release, Gary Janetti’s satire has divided critics. While some are amused to see the royal family thus mocked, others strongly condemn the fate of Prince George, only 8 years old. This is particularly the case of Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, who recently spoke on Good Morning Britain: “As far as I’m concerned, I think children should not be targeted. (.. .) He turned 8 last week. Leave him alone, damn it! He shouldn’t be abused, joked, or bullied. It’s just not right! “
“George is not going to understand why this is happening”
Unfortunately, the defenders of the young prince will not prevent the inevitable. According to royal commentator Roberta Fiorito, the damage is done and George will not escape the mockery associated with the series. His parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, will therefore have to take the initiative to preserve him as much as possible: “Even if George’s parents do not give him permission to watch the series, his classmates will surely See. Kate and William are going to have to have an uncomfortable conversation with George to explain why this is important, and George, who is eight, is not going to understand why this is happening, “Roberta Fiorito said on Twitter. “I find it very inappropriate to pick on a child. If you want to pick on the royal family, there is enough to say about Charles, Camilla, William or anyone else. in my opinion, children should not be targeted. “
