HBO Max Releasing ‘The Prince’ at Midnight Tonight!

In a surprise move, the streamer will drop all 12 episodes - at 12:01 PST on July 29 - of its satirical animated series about Prince George and his British royal family, which had been put on hold to retool following the death of Prince Philip earlier this year; official trailer and key art also released.

HBO Max has released the official trailer and key art for the 2D animated comedy The Prince, created by Gary Janetti (Family Guy). The satirical animated series that follows a sassy Prince George and his British royal family was respectfully put on hold following Prince Philip’s death earlier this year, as according to a source, “[the show] does not portray the husband of Queen Elizabeth in the most flattering of ways.”

But that was then, and this is now. Tonight, at midnight PT (Thursday, July 29), the streamer is dropping all 12 episodes of the series, a satirical take about the imagined inner workings of the royal family seen through the eyes of an animated Prince George, the youngest heir to the throne, who spills all the royal “tea” on his family, followers, and the monarchy. Featuring a star-studded voice cast, the series is an outlandishly funny, warm, and one-of-a-kind parody of Buckingham Palace’s residents and staff.

Giggle through the official trailer - the series' poster is shown below:

Janetti stars in the series as the fictionalized Prince George alongside the voice talents of Orlando Bloom as Prince Harry; Alan Cumming as George’s butler Owen; Frances de la Tour as Queen Elizabeth; Lucy Punch as Kate Middleton; Condola Rashad at Meghan Markle; Iwan Rheon as Prince William; Dan Stevens as Prince Charles; and Sophie Turner as Princess Charlotte.

Guest stars on the series include Paul Anderson, Samuel Barnett, and Sacha Dhawan as various voices; Andy Cohen, Brad Goreski, and Kelly Ripa as themselves; and from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Garcelle Beuavais, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, Teddi Mellencamp, Kyle Richards, and Lisa Rinna.  

The Prince is produced by 20th Television Animation with animation by Bento Box. The series is created, written, and executive produced by Janetti (Will & Grace, Family Guy and Vicious) and produced by Eli Dolleman (The Cleveland Show). The animation is executive produced by Emmy winners Joel Kuwahara and Scott Greenberg (Bob’s Burgers) and produced by Leanne Moreau (Young Justice).
