The Prince is a satirical animated sitcom that premiered on HBO Max in 2021. The show is created by Gary Janetti, who is known for his work on Family Guy and Will & Grace. The series features a star-studded voice cast, including Orlando Bloom, Alan Cumming, and Frances de la Tour.

The show revolves around the fictionalized version of Prince George, the eldest son of Prince William and Kate Middleton. While George (voiced by Janetti) is the titular character, it's his support staff that really drives the humor. Orlando Bloom voices "Prince Harry," who's portrayed as a party boy with a limited intellect. Alan Cumming voices "Owen," George's butler, whose well-intentioned advice often goes awry. Frances de la Tour voices "Queen Elizabeth II," who's portrayed as a chain-smoking centenarian (the animated version of "The Crown's" Helena Bonham Carter) who's looking forward to death.

The show is a commentary on the British royal family and their lifestyle, as seen through the eyes of a child, Prince George. The jokes are often crude, politically incorrect, and deal with adult themes, including drug use, sex, and alcohol. While some have criticized the show for its humor, others have praised it for its satirical commentary on the British monarchy, and its absurdity.

The animation style is reminiscent of shows like Family Guy and The Simpsons, with exaggerated features and caricatures of the real-life characters. The character designs are appropriately over-the-top, with Harry portrayed as a beer-swilling frat boy, Kate as a larger-than-life beauty queen, and Elizabeth II as a scowling, chain-smoking tyrant.

One of the show's more controversial storylines involves George's obsession with his "future girlfriend," twelve-year-old Madison, who's based on Madison Beer. The show takes a satirical approach to the young star's social media presence, and George's preoccupation with her has been deemed inappropriate by some viewers.

Overall, The Prince is a witty, irreverent look at one of the world's most famous families. It's full of snark, absurdity, and crude humor, and while it may not be for everyone, it's definitely worth checking out for fans of satire and irreverent comedy.

The Prince is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on July 29, 2021.
