Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been savagely mocked in a new episode of Family Guy.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are featured in the new series of the hit cartoon satire. In the episode, main character Peter Griffin compares himself to the couple as he sits with a group of friends at a bar. Speaking to his pals, Peter tries to think of ways he can get money he’s owed.

He then comes up with the idea to “go it alone”, just like Meghan and Harry did when they stepped down as working members of the Royal Family in 2020. The scene then cuts to the Sussexes sitting by a pool in their swimwear.

A butler waits on the couple and hands them “millions from Netflix.” As he hands them the money, the butler tells Harry: “Sir, your millions from Netflix for… no-one knows what.” Harry then replies: “Put it with the rest of them.”

This brutal takedown of the royal couple refers to the huge deal they signed with Netflix after stepping back from The Firm. It is unknown exactly how much the deal is worth but it has been reported it could be $112million (£88,000).

As the butler rushes off, Meghan gets a notification on her phone. “Babe, time to do our daily $250,000 sponsored Instagram post for Del Taco,” she says to her husband.

In an apparent dig at the Royal Family, Harry replies: “I shouldn’t have left the made-up nonsense.” The latest cartoon treatment of Harry and Meghan comes after they were mocked on South Park earlier this year. On that show, the couple were slammed for their claims they want a “private life”, while still living in the spotlight.

As well as signing a lucrative deal with Netflix, Meghan and Harry also went into partnership with Spotify. However, the couple were axed from the streaming giant earlier this year and a Spotify executive later called them “grifters”.

Bill Simmons, Head of Podcast Innovation and Monetisation at Spotify, hit out at the pair in an episode of his podcast. “The f***ing grifters. That’s the podcast we should have launched with them,” he said.

“I’ve got to get drunk one night and tell the story of the Zoom I had with Harry to try and help him with a podcast idea. It’s one of my best stories.”
