Prince, The: HBO Max Delays Series Because of Prince Philip’s Death

The Prince is an animated series created as a satirical take on Britain’s royal family that depicted the late royal as decrepit.

According to one source, the series does not portray the husband of Queen Elizabeth in a flattering of way, as evidenced in the above still from the series that shows him in a decrepit state.

Though the show, like Janetti’s popular Royal-focused Instagram, is tongue-in-cheek, it appears the streamer isn’t taking any chances.

HBO Max confirmed that it has delayed The Prince debut: “We were saddened to learn of Prince Philip’s passing and will adjust plans for the series debut.”

A new date will be announced at a later time.

It is unclear if Philip’s character (voiced by Dan Stevens) will be redrawn or if any story changes will be made before the final product hits the air.

The cast includes Janetti voicing Prince George, Orlando Bloom as Prince Harry, Lucy Punch as Duchess Kate, Condola Rashad as Meghan Markle, Iwan Rheon as Prince William and Sophie Turner as Princess Charlotte.
