Watch: South Park takes aim at Harry and Meghan

South Park fans said they were "rolling" around with laughter after the cartoon appeared to take aim at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

A recent episode of the irreverent comedy focused on "the prince of Canada and his wife".

Entitled The Worldwide Privacy Tour, it followed the red-headed royal and his wife as they tried "to find privacy and seclusion in a small mountain town".

In one scene, the character Kyle was heard ranting: "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****** face."

The Canadian prince promoted a book called Waaagh, a nod to the Prince's controversial memoir, Spare.

And he and his wife went on a talk show holding signs saying how much they wanted their privacy.
