Prince George fans are in for a real treat, because HBO Max is developing an all-new animated series based on the satirical persona that Gary Janetti created for the 6-year-old royal.

The Do You Mind If I Cancel? author just released a first look at The Prince, which is inspired by Janetti’s George-centric Instagram account. (If you haven’t checked it out, we highly recommend you give it a scroll.)

The teaser gives us a taste of what to expect from The Prince, which is pretty much a cross between South Park and Family Guy.

“I know self-isolating is difficult,” animated Prince George says in the clip, “and we’re all sick of being stuck inside the same 775 rooms or, you know, studio apartment. It’s different for everyone…but we’re all in this together. Well, not me. I’m not in it with you. But you know, everyone else, you’re in it together.”

He continues, “Above all, be kind to your servants. They’re doing the best they can. Even though lunch f***ing sucked today. Anyway, stay inside, wash your hands and as Beyoncé once famously said, ‘All the single ladies, all the single ladies.’”

The Prince will examine the royal family through the eyes of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s firstborn child. Oh, and did we mention the series has an all-star cast?

In addition to Janetti (who will voice Prince George), the series will also feature the voices of Orlando Bloom (Prince Harry), Condola Rashad (Meghan Markle), Lucy Punch (Kate Middleton), Tom Hollander (both Prince Philip and Prince Charles), Alan Cumming (George’s butler, Owen), Frances De La Tour (Queen Elizabeth) and Iwan Rheon (Prince William).
