If you thought The Crown was hard for the royals to watch, just wait until The Prince premieres.

On Wednesday, July 28, HBO Max released a laugh-out-loud trailer for their new animated satire about Prince George and the British royal family. The highly anticipated series, which premieres July 29, puts Prince William and Kate Middleton's oldest child front-and-center as it documents a fictionalized version of the future king's life.

And it's safe to say you've never seen the royals in this light. Case in point: Prince George (voiced by creator Gary Janetti) asks one butler, "Excuse me, do you have any tea that doesn't taste like piss?"

That doesn't sound like the precious royal we've come to adore. Of course, it isn't just Prince George who is playfully roasted by this series as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's exit from the royal family is also commented on.

"This might be the smallest palace I've ever been in," Prince Harry (Orlando Bloom) notes to the duchess. Although Meghan (Condola Rashad) tries to explain the concept of an apartment, Prince William's brother struggles to comprehend.

"Yes, an apartment-palace. I know that," he responds. "Lots of tiny palaces inside one big palace."

This premiere has been a long time coming as Gary first teased the biting series on his Instagram in April 2020. He later excited fans with a sneak peek of Sophie Turner's portrayal of Princess Charlotte. However, back in May, it was revealed that the animated series had delayed its spring premiere date out of respect for the royal family, who was mourning the death of Prince Philip.

Thankfully, fans won't have to wait too much longer to enjoy the entire series as all 12 episodes will drop tonight at midnight.

In addition to Gary, Sophie, Condola and Orlando, The Prince stars Lucy Punch as Kate Middleton, Alan Cumming as George's butler Owen, Frances de la Tour as Queen Elizabeth II and Iwan Rheon as Prince William.

For a taste of the hilarity to come, watch the new trailer above.
