A Royal Family cartoon should never be aired as the Queen would feel she's being "mocked", a royal commentator has told the Daily Star.

Satirical HBO series The Prince was this week temporarily shelved following the death of her husband Prince Philip.

Thomas Mace-Archer-Mills urged the US TV network to axe it completely fearing that it could also amount to the "bullying" of Prince George, seven.

The founder of the British Monarchist Society told us: "The series revolves around Prince George and the Royal family – with nothing flattering or uplifting portrayed about the Queen or Prince Philip.

"After nearly 70 years of dedicated and selfless service to the nation and 73 years of marriage – her Majesty should not be put in a position where she will see herself, her family and her great-grandchildren rubbished and mocked for selfish financial gain.

"HBO should be ashamed with their decision to order and carry this programme of insensitive tosh aimed at a seven-year-old child."

The Duke of Edinburgh died on April 9 aged 99, but days before his death The Prince's writer-producer Gary Janetti had teased the forthcoming release of the series of US streaming service HBO Max.

It reportedly features an unflattering portrayal of Philip.

The satirical shows takes aim at the Royal family, also focusing on Prince George, the son of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

It had been expected to make its debut this spring.

Mr Mace-Archer-Mills added: "In the face of the woke movement which seems to be championed by Prince George's Uncle and Aunt (Harry and Meghan), I am dismayed as to how such a programme, which is a form of bullying itself, was given the green light to poke fun at children in the way The Prince has.

"This is a family grieving for the loss of its Patriarch – a family that is trying to navigate the rocky relationships created by 'Megxit', and a family rallying around a 95-year-old woman who works selflessly on behalf of the British nation.

"Behind the workings of British Political mechanics is a human family with very human costs as to what is created and maliciously promoted about them.

"Does Prince George not fit into the confines of what is now deemed as 'woke' even though he is only seven years old? Does he not count because of his colour and his familial status?

"This programme is setting a very dangerous double standard with regards to social constructs and consciousness within the woke movement in which children, no matter their colour, are not safe from bullying and alternative forms of child abuse."

HBO and its parent company WarnerMedia have been contacted for comment.
