The concept, however, appeals to hundreds of thousands of Internet users on Instagram. Gary Janetti, American screenwriter and television producer, fell in love a few years ago with Prince George, the young heir to the Crown. To the point of making him the main character of his Instagram account, and imagining the chronicles of the royal family told through him. The idea appeals since George, portrayed as a prank character by Gary Janetti, says things as he thinks them and multiplies the caustic remarks with regard to the rest of his family. HBO Max then seized on the idea to make it a 12-episode series, The Prince, broadcast last July on the platform. To embody the characters of the Crown, illustrated in cartoon form, several renowned British actors have agreed to lend their voices. Thus, Orlando Bloom dubbed Prince Harry, while Dan Stevens (Beauty and the Beast) played both Prince Charles and Prince Philippe. As for Princess Charlotte, it was none other than Sophie Turner who lent her voice. Despite an interesting concept and a group of actors not stung by beetles, the series achieves mixed audiences on the platform, so much so that HBO Max has decided not to renew the program for a second season. “The Prince stops there,” Casey Bloys, chief content officer for HBO and HBO Max, said in an interview with Deadline.
The Prince: still active on Instagram
If the series ends, fans of Prince George imagined by Gary Janetti can find the insolence of the young heir on the Instagram account of its creator. In one of the most recent publications, we see a press headline indicating that Prince Charles saw his mother the Queen two days before being tested positive for Covid, then a photo of Prince George who lets go, bluntly: ” I could literally be king in two weeks.”
