Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will not be pursuing the episode of “South Park” which appeared to poke fun at them, their reps have told the Post.

Their spokesperson called the idea that the episode had legal ramifications “baseless and boring” in an email to The Post.

Reports circulated that the former royal couple were furious after Comedy Central aired an episode called ‘The Worldwide Privacy Tour’, which appeared to poke fun at Markle, 41, and Harry, 38, and their decision to move to the United States in an attempt to invade privacy.

The Duchess was reportedly “shattered and shaken” by the episode, which did not specifically name them but featured characters who closely resembled the Duke and Duchess.

The episode’s characters are portrayed as Canadian royalty who move to a fictional town for privacy and are referred to as “the prince and his wife”.

The “woman” character, who fans have compared to Markle, is described as a “sorority girl, actress, influencer and victim,” to which she replies, “Yeah, that’s totally me.” The couple then go on to adamantly say they want privacy – while still being in the public eye – including a scene where they go on talk show ‘Good Morning Canada’ to promote the prince’s new book , “Waaagh”, an ironic nod to Prince Harry’s real-life memoir, “Spare”.

A source told Viewer that Markle was “bored by ‘South Park’ but refuses to watch it all.”

Royal commentator Kristen Meinzer told Newsweek she doubts the couple are pursuing a “satirical cartoon that makes everyone look ridiculous”.

“If anything, they’ll know they’re in good company with other decent people who have been raked in by the show,” Meinzer said.
