Prince Harry and Meghan Markle break their silence on claims they're suing South Park
| Last updated
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally responded to claims they are looking at launching a lawsuit against South Park.
The long-running animated TV show absolutely ripped into the Royal couple in an episode from their latest season.
Titled 'Worldwide Privacy Tour', the show touched on how Harry and Meghan have called for privacy from the media while at the same time promoting the Duke of Sussex's book Spare.
The episode sees the couple, who are depicted as the Prince of Canada and his wife, move to South Park in the hope of finding a much quieter life.
But they quickly annoy Kyle when they buy a home across the road from him and start letting off fireworks and playing the drums while screaming to be left alone.
In one scene, Kyle says: "It seriously is driving me crazy. I’m sick of hearing about them but I can’t get away from them!
"They’re everywhere. In my f****ing face."
Stan replies: "Look, Kyle, we just kind of don’t care about some dumb prince and his stupid wife."
Ever since the episode aired, everyone has been waiting to see if Harry or Meghan would respond to their depiction on the show.
There were even some Royal insiders who claimed the couple was looking to sue the creators of the show and were combing through the scenes to see if they had a case.
But, a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has revealed this is definitely not the case.
They told Newsweek that speculation Harry and Meghan were considering legal action 'is baseless and boring'.
Meghan Markle explained what she meant by respecting their privacy during her explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
"I think everyone has a basic right to privacy," she said.
"We're not talking about anything that anybody else wouldn't expect.
"If you're at work and you have a photograph of your child on your desk, and your co-worker says, 'Oh, my gosh, your kid's so cute. That's fantastic! Can I see your phone so I can see all the pictures of your child?' You go, 'No. This is the picture I'm comfortable sharing with you'.
"And then if they double down and say, 'No, but you already showed me that one. So you have to show me everything. You know what, I'm just gonna hire someone to sit in front of your house, or hide in the bushes and take pictures into your backyard, because you've lost your right to privacy ... because you shared one image with me'."
