The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have denied reports they are planning to take legal action over a South Park episode that saw them ridiculed.

Meghan had reportedly been left ‘upset’ after she and Prince Harry were mocked in an episode of South Park.

The episode, World Privacy Tour, mocks the couple as they promote the book Waaagh, which resembles Harry’s book Spare.

In one shot from the cartoon, the couple step off a plane carrying signs reading: “Stop Looking at Us” and “We Want our Privacy.”

There had been reports that the couple could take legal action over the episode, but a spokesperson for the couple labelled reports “all frankly nonsense” and “totally baseless and boring".

She has refused to watch the episode in its entirety, according to sources in California.

In the episode she is described as a “sorority girl, actress, influencer, victim".

The Duchess is heard saying: “If we moved here, people would think we're really serious about wanting to be normal.”

A royal commentator had claimed Harry and Meghan's lawyers are 'casting an eye' over the South Park episode.
