Perfect timing…

Ah this looks bloody brilliant.

HBO has announced a new animated series based on the British royal family, and it sounds gas.

The name of the show is “The Prince”, and is based on the parody Instagram account run by Gary Janetti. B

Janetti will voice Prince George, with other members of the voice cast including: Orlando Bloom as Prince Harry, Condola Rashad at Meghan Markle, Lucy Punch as Kate Middleton, Tom Hollander as both Prince Philip and Prince Charles, Alan Cumming as George’s butler Owen, Frances De La Tour as Queen Elizabeth, and Iwan Rheon as Prince William.

“I’m thrilled to be working at HBO Max and bringing them yet another series about a family ruthlessly fighting for the throne,” said Janetti.

Sarah Aubrey, head of original content for HBO Max, said:

“We’re so excited to bring the world Gary’s created on Instagram over to HBO Max, where our viewers can discover what his Instagram fans already know – that George can be hilarious, shocking, and surprisingly sweet.”

“We can’t wait to see what Gary does with a bigger canvas to paint on than just a 1:1 square.”

We are GASPING to watch this.
