The animated series "South Park" is known for its humorous take on current events and popular culture, and in its latest episode, the show took aim at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Specifically, the episode mocked Markle for allegedly copying the fashion choices of Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales.
Markle Imitates Middleton's Style
Since joining the Royal Family, Markle has been the subject of criticism from some who claim that she has been copying Middleton's fashion choices. This criticism was echoed by "South Park" in a scene where the fictional royal couple pastes all the princesses' magazine covers on Kyle Broflovski's house, including Vanity Fair and The Cut, both magazines in which Markle has been featured.
People's Reaction to the Scene
The scene was not lost on the show's viewers, who took to social media to express their opinions on the matter.
Some commented that the writers of "South Park" went too far in implying that Markle was copying Middleton, while others pointed out that it made sense for Markle to look to Middleton for inspiration, given her long history in the Royal Family and her reputation for always looking stylish.
A source was quoted as saying in 2018, "It hasn't gone unnoticed by Kate's circle. Everybody's a bit baffled. Meghan was a style icon and knew what to wear... But since joining the royals she seems to be a bit lost. Instead of finding her feet she is copying what Kate wears more often than ever." The latest episode of "South Park" has once again sparked a conversation about Meghan Markle and her fashion choices, with some praising the show for its comedic take on the matter and others arguing that it went too far.
Regardless of one's opinion, it is clear that Markle's fashion choices continue to be a topic of interest and discussion.
Neil Sean told Fox News: "According to sources close to the ex-royals, it appears that, like so many things with Meghan and Harry, this may have legal ramifications attached.
Their legal team are casting an eye over the episode to see what is wrong, and what could be turned into something more sinister."
Fans Hit Back
"Yes South Park have roasted Harry and Meghan but they've done the same to William and Kate and have a history of dragging the royals before.
It's actually an honour to be coated by South Park because it shows you're someone of relevance" "Yes...South Park does what South Park does...roast everybody...as they did with William and Kate at their wedding. This is nothing new, so this Harry n Meghan hysteria is a bit melodramatic," added another.
A third said: "It's almost as if people don't know how South Park works. They already did William and Catherine 12 years ago. They've done the whole Royal Family. It's what they do. You're nobody until South Park spoofs you."
