Never ones to shy away from controversy, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone took several swings at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in a recent episode.

The episode spoofed the couple's wish for privacy by having them create elaborate spectacles to spread that message, like a memoir Spare, I mean Waaagh and a Netflix special.

One of the show's main characters Kyle called the husband and wife duo the "dumb prince and his stupid wife."

"They have this huge jet parked in front of my house and they keep on wanting me to buy their book."

Later, the episode shows Markle "bossing" and nagging at the prince:

"I'm sick of hearing about them! I can't get away from them! They are in my f**king face!"

In the segment below, the former royal couple made an appearance on Good Morning Canada picketing for their privacy and voicing their distaste of journalists.

The host asked the couple:

"So, you hate journalists? And now you wrote a book that reports on the lives of the royal family?"
"... so, you're a journalist."

While a handful of viewers thought the episode was pretty harsh, former Good Morning Britainhost Piers Morgan tweeted it was "lethally brilliant."

Others agreed.

But one notable person did not find humor in the episode—the Duchess herself.

According to The Spectator, Markle is"upset and overwhelmed" at the portrayal of the couple, and she's "annoyed by South Park but refuses to watch it all."

In addition, GBNreported royal commentator Neil Sean confirmed the couple's legal team is investigating.

"According to sources close to the ex-royals, it appears that, like so many things with Meghan and Harry, this may have legal ramifications attached."
"Their legal team are casting an eye over the episode to see what is wrong and what could be turned into something more sinister."

The twitterverse had a lot to say about Markle's reaction.

But many don't think she stands a chance against the satirical animated series.

Markle's reps have not responded to requests to comment as of yet.

Fox News stated the couple's legal team has not confirmed whether legal action will be taken.
