Ranvir Singh has opened up about her thoughts regarding the latest episode of South Park, which appeared to tease Prince Harry and Meghan Markle by writing them as characters going on a worldwide privacy tour.

During the discussion, an expert revealed that the royal couple has "crashed" in US opinions, explaining: "This is a big thing happening in America now. They’ve transitioned from being Obama 2.0 to these figures on ridicule. It’s not just South Park… big mainstream comedy shows… they have crashed in US opinion poll." 

Ranvir responded: "Does it matter? Because their Netflix series was the biggest show that Netflix has ever done and they’re still making money which is what they want," to which another royal expert, Iain Dale, explained: "It think they care deeply about their reputation and those polling numbers… some of us have not changed our opinions over the months, I think the book was a mistake.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have yet to speak out about the episode

"I just can’t be bothered to get on any longer. It was written by a professional ghostwriter but they didn’t pick very well. I think the book has been more damaging than the Netflix series."

Discussing the clip on Twitter, one fan wrote: "I think @IainDale I correct, Harry and Megan will care that the Americans are turning against them. Some of us turned a long time ago!" Another person wrote: "This is just sad. South Park mocks EVERYTHING & has since the 90s, including the queen and royal family but continue being obsessed with Harry."
