Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been chasing the limelight.
But they may have finally gotten some press attention that struck a nerve.
Now Harry and Meghan were torn to shreds by South Park.
Matt Stone and Trey Parker, co-creators of the long-running irreverent animated series South Park, have made a career at poking Hollywood and the elites.
Although Stone and Parker aren’t afraid to lampoon both sides, they particularly irked the Left when they asked conservative commentator and radio host Larry Elder to present them with an award at a left-wing ceremony in 2018.
Stone and Parker also told the liberal audience, “We’re Republicans.”
The duo ruffled feathers when they mocked Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in a recent episode.
Harry and Meghan were portrayed as desperate for media attention while simultaneously begging for privacy.

The episode clearly showed the irony of Harry and Meghan’s media whirlwind over the past few years.
They made a big fuss about leaving the Royal Family, then sat for an exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey where they accused the family of racism.
Harry recently released his memoir Spare, which skewered his family and played up his own victim narrative.
A Royal insider told The UK Spectator that Meghan was “upset and overwhelmed” by her portrayal.
Unfortunately for her, she has not done much to dispel the accusations that she’s starved for attention.
Between interviews and books and podcasts and documentaries, the Sussex Royals are eager to talk about not only themselves, but the Royal Family.
The Royal insider also revealed that Meghan “is annoyed by ‘South Park’ but refuses to watch it all.”
The source added that Meghan is “obsessed with her half-sister’s litigation.”
Samantha Markle is suing her sister over allegedly spurious comments she made about her and their biological father, from whom Meghan is estranged.
Both Samantha and their father Thomas have been critical of Meghan.
Samantha once said of her sister in an interview, “I definitely see a narcissistic personality disorder. I’m not diagnosing her. She needs to see a counselor…I feel sorry for Harry. She pulled him away from his family, all of his friends, the life that he knew. He reminds me of one of those kidnap victims who eventually starts to believe that their life was so horrible and they’re in love with their captor.”
It seems that South Park has touched a nerve.
The episode is also building on the trend of media outlets getting sick of the Royals.
POLITICO journalist Joanna Weiss wrote, “[S]omewhere between the fifth and sixth hour of ‘Harry and Meghan,’ the new Netflix documentary series produced by the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex and filmed at their California mansion — which suggests that there is no one more in love, no one more socially conscious, no one more aggrieved — my natural sympathy for the couple started turning to irritation, and it occurred to me that ego has its limits.”
The Royals wanted attention, and now they’ve become oversaturated.
