In the scene, Meghan, 40 — who is voiced by Condola Rashad — complains about her acting career.

"This sucks. On Suits I was a series regular. Attorney at law!" she exclaims. The TV star then talks to her husband, Prince Harry — who is voiced by Orlando Bloom — about their goals.

"You never had a dream when you were a child to be something everything else said was impossible, like an astronaut or prime minister, or masseur?" he asks, to which Meghan replies, "Ah ... I wanted to be a princess."

"Oh, well you kind of f**ked that up," Harry replies, referring to how the pair left the royal family in 2020.

Despite moving to California, Harry has insisted that he will never forget where he came from.

"Whatever decisions are made on that side I will never walk away," he said. "I'll always be contributing. My life is public service so wherever I am in the world it's going to be the same thing."

"It was a really difficult environment as I think a lot of people saw. We all know what the British press can be like. It was destroying my mental health," he confessed. "This is toxic, so I did what any husband and what any father would do which is, 'I need to get my family out of here,' but we never walked away."

Meanwhile, this is hardly the first time the animated series has called out a member of the royal family.

In one episode, Prince Philip — who died in April — is shown eating eating pureed mush at the dinner table and later on, he falls down on the floor — but no one says anything or even notices.

Fans were quick to call out the flat joke.

One person wrote, "I'm no Royal Family fan or anything, but seeing as Prince Philip has passed away the way he's portrayed on The Prince on HBO is a little upsetting," while another added, "Bullying 3 children (so their parents), & Her Majesty The Queen, who is currently grieving the loss of her husband of 73 years. What a kick in the guts to Royals!"
