Long-running animated show “South Park” took aim at royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in recent days, lampooning their perceived hypocrisy.

The episode, aired on February 15 and titled “The Worldwide Privacy Tour,” follows the fictional “Prince of Canada and his wife as they try to find privacy and seclusion in a small mountain town.”

The episode depicts the royals appearing on the set of the “Good Morning Canada” show, where they appear waving signs declaring that they want privacy.

When the show’s host questions the sincerity of the claim, the prince replies: “How dare you, sir! my Instagram loving b***h wife has always wanted her privacy.”

In a teaser released ahead of the episode, Kyle Broflovski complains to his friends about how tired he is of hearing about the royal couple.

“It’s seriously driving me crazy, I’m sick of hearing about them. But I can’t get away from them, they’re everywhere,” says Kyle.

Though no official response has been issued, royal expert Kinsey Schofield said in an interview with “TalkTV” that Markle had been “left upset” by the episode.

Outspoken American news personality Megyn Kelly said that Markel’s supposed political aspirations may have taken a serious blow.

“I feel this is a pronouncement that they have jumped the shark, they are not beloved and her hopes of running for president, reported hopes, are all but dashed,”  she declared in her “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast. “That’s not happening. When ‘South Park’ turns on you, there’s no recovering.”

Harry and Meghan are facing growing criticism after a recent six-part Netflix miniseries became the platform’s biggest-ever documentary debut, and sent shockwaves through the British royal establishment.

The couple dramatically quit royal life and moved to California in 2020, and have complained bitterly about their treatment in the UK and by the prince’s family.

A YouGov survey published in The Times newspaper in January found only 24 percent of people now have a positive view of the prince — down from 80 percent a decade ago — with 68 percent critical.
