The Royal Family are being turned into a cartoon thanks to a wildly popular Instagram account that satirises their headlines surrounding their lives.
Family Guy writer Gary Janetti lightheartedly pokes fun at members of the royal family via his Instagram account where he posts memes through the imagined eyes of Kate and William's eldest son Prince George.
This has inspired the animated series, which will be called The Prince, with Janetti acting as the voice of Prince George alongside other famous voices like Orlando Bloom, Tom Hollander, Alan Cumming, Frances De La Tour and Game of Thrones Iwan Rheon.

The series will be released in the US available on HBO Max and will see The Queen, Princes William and Harry, wives Kate and Meghan along with Prince Charles and Camilla all imagined in cartoon form.
Gary Janetti's Instagram account has amassed over one million thanks to his snarky posts from the point of view of a sassy Prince George.
The series will be written and produced by the Family Guy writer and will follow George as he "spills the royal 'tea' on his family, followers and the British Monarchy" according to Deadline.
In the Instagram posts, the youngest heir to the throne often mocks his relatives and their actions in biting commentary which often draws likes from big name celebrities.
With the new series it means George's family will get the chance to have their own say as Hollywood star Orlando Bloon will voice Prince Harry, American actress Condola Rashad will be Meghan Markle, Bad Teacher star Lucy Punch as Kate Middleton and Iwan Rheon as Prince William.
The older members of the family will also weigh in with Tom Hollander as Prince Philip and Prince Charles, Alan Cumming who will voice George’s imaginary butler Owen, and Frances De La Tour as Queen Elizabeth.
Deadline explains that the episodes will see Prince George navigate life as a royal child.
"Before George rules Britannia, he’ll be laying down his own laws in Janetti’s comedic take on the future King of England’s childhood as seen from the prince’s own point of view.
"Because his succession isn’t coming any time soon, in each episode George will find his path in life as a young prince in modern times – from the 775 rooms of Buckingham Palace to his family’s sea of corgis to primary school with commoners."
Head of original content Sarah Aubrey for HBO 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."
