HBO Max has delayed the launch of The Prince, an animated series that lampoons the British royal family. The cause: the death of Prince Philip on April 9, aged 99.
The show, from writer-producer Gary Janetti, is a satire of the royal family from the perspective of young Prince George, Queen Elizabeth’s great-grandson. It was due to debut on HBO Max in late spring. The passing of the queen’s husband has scuppered that plan.
The Warnermedia streamer has confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the launch has been delayed. “We were saddened to learn of Prince Philip’s passing and will adjust plans for the series debut,” said a representative. “A new date will be announced at a later time.”
