What “Family Guy”'s Joke About Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Got Wrong

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got the cartoon treatment again — this time, on Family Guy.

A new episode of Seth MacFarlane's animated sitcom features caricatures of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex lounging by the pool in bathing suits.

A butler approaches them and says, "Sir, your millions from Netflix for...no one knows what."

Harry's character replies, "Put it with the rest of them."

A phone notification rings and Meghan's character says, "Babe, time to do our daily $250,000 sponsored Instagram post for Del Taco."

"I shouldn't have left the made-up nonsense," Harry replies.

While Prince Harry and Meghan have a deal with Netflix, where they've produced several shows from the docu-series Harry and Meghan to the behind-the-scenes look at the Invictus Games with Heart of Invictus, there's an obvious hole in the second joke about Instagram: the couple doesn't currently have a public social media presence.

Meghan, 42, and Harry, 39, shut down their @SussexRoyal Instagram page shortly after announcing that they intended to step back as working members of the royal family in 2020. They then moved to Meghan's home state of California and set up their Archewell Foundation, but the couple has not returned to social media.

Although the parents of two no longer use Instagram or update the website SussexRoyal.com, “both the Instagram account and website will remain in existence online for the foreseeable future,” a spokesperson for the couple previously stated.

In a caption on their final Instagram post, the couple wrote: “As we can all feel, the world at this moment seems extraordinarily fragile. Yet we are confident that every human being has the potential and opportunity to make a difference—as seen now across the globe, in our families, our communities and those on the front line—together we can lift each other up to realise the fullness of that promise.”

“As we all find the part we are to play in this global shift and changing of habits, we are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute,” they added. “While you may not see us here, the work continues.”

Last year, Meghan teased a return to social media in a wide-ranging interview with New York magazine's The Cut.

"Do you want to know a secret?" she said. "I'm getting back…on Instagram."

Although Meghan "would relay she was no longer sure she would actually return to Instagram" later in the interview, she appeared to be considering the move "especially now, with Archetypes coming out," referring to her podcast.

Reflecting on shutting down her social media profiles (including her Instagram page with 3 million followers) and lifestyle blog The Tig after getting engaged to Prince Harry, the former Suits star said, "It was a big adjustment — a huge adjustment to go from that kind of autonomy to a different life."

Meghan and Prince Harry's royal work and news appeared on the @KensingtonRoyal accounts, which also provided updates on Prince William and Kate Middleton — but it came with strict rules.

"There's literally a structure by which if you want to release photos of your child, as a member of the family, you first have to give them to the Royal Rota," she explained, referring to the U.K.'s media pool. She questioned why she should release photos of her child to the media before she can "share it with the people that love my child?"

The couple later launched their separate @SussexRoyal account.

Instagram is clearly important to the couple — in fact, it's how they first connected.

In addition to Family Guy, Meghan and Prince Harry were also spoofed on South Park earlier this year. Titled "Worldwide Privacy Tour," the episode centered on a "prince of Canada" and his wife who settle in the fictional town in Colorado. The characters' similarities to Harry and Meghan were hard to miss, from the prince's ginger hair and beard to the wife's pink outfit and hat, a close match to Meghan's ensemble at Trooping the Colour in 2018. The show saw the cartoon couple carrying "We want our privacy" and "Stop looking at us" signs as they traveled to different locations around the world.

When reports emerged that Meghan and Harry were going to pursue legal action against South Park, a spokesperson for the couple denied the rumors. The spokesperson told PEOPLE: "It's all frankly nonsense. Totally baseless, boring reports."
