A new animated parody series on HBO Max which portrays Prince George as the protagonist has caused quite a fury among social media users.

The series titled "The Prince" follows the day-to-day lives of the royals, as seen by the eight-year-old George. It also features his sister Princess Charlotte, the Queen, the Sussexes, and his parents.

In one scene of the trailer, Prince Louis' character goes into a room and curtly asks for tea which he drinks hurriedly, and then smashes the cup on the floor. Prince George's character is heard saying how much his brother freaks him out.

In another scene, the Sussexes are seen in a house with Prince Harry looking astonished with how small of a palace it was. His wife Meghan can be heard correcting him and telling him that it was an apartment, not a small palace.

The trailer has left many Twitter users angry, with some branding it disrespectful and inappropriate. Others are adamant that parodying children is not acceptable. One Twitter user says:

"This is inappropriate. And disrespectful. The children are all innocent and should be off-limits! This should be pulled and never viewed. How can you in good conscience, let this happen?"

Another user complained about how disgusting it was to make a parody out of children and wondered who gave the show the green light. They followed their comment with thumbs-down emojis to show just how disgusted they were.

Sophie Turner, who recently blasted the paparazzi for taking and publishing a photo of her daughter, has found herself on the receiving end of people's criticism after she voiced Princess Charlotte in the parody.

Fans criticized his parents for making him wear a suit to a football game.

Fans could not understand how the "Game of Thrones" actress who is so vocal about protecting children's privacy could be a part of a show that many have referred to as borderline bullying.

After the photos of her with her daughter emerged, she took to her Instagram stories to let everyone know that it was creepy and disgusting that the paparazzi would creep up on her and take her photos.

She says she's made it clear that she wanted her daughter out of the limelight and added that the reason she'd not posted any photos of her daughter herself was that she wanted to keep her daughter's life private.

It thus came as a surprise that someone so animated about keeping children's lives private would voice a child's character in the new parody, and fans made sure they called her out for it, saying:

"I am so disappointed that HBO will choose to work with someone like Gary Janetti. And I am disappointed by all the celebrities voicing characters in his show."

Eight-year-old Prince George made headlines at the beginning of the month when he appeared at Wembley for the UEFA Euro 2020 in the company of his parents.

He donned a cute official suit with a tie and looked lovely, but his outfit seemed to spark a very animated discussion. Fans criticized his parents for making him wear a suit to a football game.

Others even suggested what the little prince should've worn to the game saying he should've been in knee-length socks and a tiny English strip.

Amidst the criticism, some fans thought the suit was appropriate, as it painted an accurate picture of a future king. Others noted how adorable and happy he looked to match suits with his father, Prince William.
