A spokesperson for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry has just formally shut down reports that they are considering a lawsuit over a recent episode of South Park. But just to rewind for a second, South Park took aim at the royal couple in an episode last week titled “Worldwide Privacy Tour,” which was about a “Prince of Canada and his wife,” who at one point is billed as a “ladies’ girl, actress, influencer, victim.” In the episode, the pair are seen carrying around signs saying ‘we want our privacy’ and ‘stop looking at us’, as the Prince of Canada promotes his book ‘Waaagh’.
After South Park episode aired, false reports circulated that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were considering a lawsuit — but their spokesman told people, “It’s all pure nonsense. Totally baseless, boring reports.” The spokesman did not comment on other reports which claimed Meghan in particular was “upset and overwhelmed” by the episode.
FYI that Sussexes spokesman earlier hit back at false claims about the royal couple’s integrity around that time Harry and Meghan came out to Netflix saying, “Their statement announcing their decision to step back makes no mention of privacy and reiterates their desire to continue their roles and public duties. Any suggestion otherwise speaks to a key point in this series.
They choose to share their story, on their terms, and yet the tabloid media has created a completely false narrative that permeates press coverage and public opinion. The facts are right in front of them.”
