Meghan Markle reportedly views the recent satirical portrayal of her and Prince Harry in a Family Guy episode as a “savage attack,” deeming it “totally unfair” and expressing a sense of desperation to repair their image in the United States.
Insiders close to the couple assert that the episode is perceived as an “outrageous slur,” leaving Meghan and Harry feeling marginalized and disregarded. The source indicates a sentiment of continuous adversity, describing the incident as an “attack from inside Hollywood,” leaving the couple struggling to catch a break.
The Family Guy episode is said to have intensified the couple’s challenges, underscoring a perceived shift in public opinion against them in America. Meghan is reported to be resolute in her refusal to endure such humiliation and is actively seeking a solution, prompting a state of panic.
The source suggests that the portrayal as “self-entitled grifters or spoilt brats” is particularly distressing for Meghan. In an effort to salvage their brand, Meghan allegedly believes that Harry must “swallow his pride and beg for his family’s forgiveness.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are prominently featured in the new series of the animated satire, wherein a scene humorously mirrors their decision to step down from the Royal Family in 2020. The Family Guy episode portrays main character Peter Griffin drawing parallels with the couple, highlighting their move to “go it alone.”
The satirical depiction unfolds as the Sussexes, depicted in swimwear by a pool, receive “millions from Netflix.” The exchange between a butler and Harry humorously underscores the ambiguity of the funds’ purpose. The scene concludes with Meghan’s notification for a sponsored Instagram post, and Harry’s tongue-in-cheek remark about regretting leaving the “made-up nonsense.” The entire incident is considered an apparent dig at the Royal Family.
