A representative for the couple described the rumours as “baseless and boring”.

A spokesperson for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has labelled claims that they are suing the animation show South Park as “baseless and boring”.

The couple stepped down from their duties as royals in 2020, and have since been speaking out about their time within the institution.

More recently, Harry released a tell-all book titled Spare which details his childhood experience of grief, as well as his strained relationship with his father, King Charles, and his brother, Prince William.

Last week saw an episode of the adult animation series South Park depict Harry and Meghan in an unfavourable light. The pair were seen holding placards which read, “Stop looking at us!” and “We want our privacy!”

The show presented the royal couple as the Prince and Princess of Canada and while their names aren’t used, the couple speaks publically about the lack of privacy they get.

The Prince then goes on to promote his book Waaagh, which resembles Harry’s book Spare.

The Princess on the show is also introduced to viewers as a “sorority girl, actress, influencer, victim.”

Some outlets reported that Meghan was “annoyed” by the show, while royal commentator Neil Sean told Fox News that the couple’s legal team were “casting an eye over the episode”.

However, Harry and Meghan have debunked these claims.

A spokesperson for the couple told People: “It’s all frankly nonsense. Totally baseless, boring reports.”
