"I started off, I wanted to like them. They were making interesting points about racism. and misogyny, but then they started calling each other H and M, and I just thought, 'Oh, do f--- off,'" comic Simon Brodkin quipped.
"Honestly, by the time Harry was describing a particular date with Meghan as the night they, quote, 'pulled the pin on a fun grenade,' I actually started rooting for Prince Andrew," he added.
The sound bite in question came from the couple's Netflix documentary and Prince Harry's autobiography.
"We went to this Halloween party together where we could be completely dressed up and no one would know. I had a bandana and goggles," Harry said during a scene in Netflix's Harry & Meghan.
Meghan stated: "You borrowed a great costume. And we were like 'well this might be our last shot to just go out and have fun out in the world.'"
"Pull the pin on the fun grenade, which we did," Harry replied.
The Duke of Sussex also wrote about the experience in his memoir, Spare. "For help with my costume, I'd turned to a friend, the actor Tom Hardy, before I left home. I'd phoned him to ask if I could borrow his costume from Mad Max," Harry wrote.
"'The whole thing?' 'Yes, please, mate! The whole kit.' He'd given it all to me before I left Britain, and now I tried it on in Meg's little bathroom. When I came out, she roared with laughter. It was funny. And a little scary. But the main thing was I was unrecognizable. The party was loud, dark, [and] drunk — ideal," the fifth in line to the throne continued. "Several people did double-takes as Meg passed through the rooms, but no one looked twice at her dystopian date. I wished I could wear this disguise every day. I wished I could reuse it the next day and visit her on the set of Suits."
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have regularly been a topic of discussion with comics around the world as well as animators. In 2023 alone, the pair was mocked during episodes of South Park and Family Guy. The duo was also a punchline for the comic Tim Dillon.
Last May, the acerbic comic shared on his podcast, "The Tim Dillon Show," a conversation he was involved in at a Los Angeles party and stated, "They are just like moths to the flame trying to hang out," before commenting on Meghan, "I'm literally at the party, and they are showing me texts of this woman begging people to like 'hang out.' She is trying to get places. It's sad."
Newsweek reported on Brodkin's remarks.
