Following the controversial episode, it was rumored that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were planning to pursue legal action against the series though their rep denied the reports.

AceShowbiz - "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have reacted to reports that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle planned to sue them over an episode of the animated show. The pair discussed the matter during an appearance on "Basic!" podcast on Wednesday, February 22.

In the interview, the showrunners told the podcast's hosts Doug Herzog and Jen Chaney that they are used to getting backlash. They noted that "there are so many [moments] we can't even remember" when it came to criticism of their Comedy Central show.

"It was all coming from the right, we were considered counterculture," the animators said. "The Catholic League are always on our a** - it kind of always came from that side."

"South Park" made headlines earlier this month after its February 15 episode appeared to mock Harry and Meghan. Titled "The Worldwide Privacy Tour", the episode followed the "prince and princess of Canada" as they moved to a fictional Colorado town to get out of the press.

The couple, who bore a striking resemblance to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, could also be seen holding signs saying "we want out privacy" and "stop looking at us." They, however, attracted more attention to them by doing some interviews. The couple eventually moved to South Park in their quest for a normal life.

Kyle wasn't happy with his new neighbor as he ranted, "They have this huge jet parked in front of my house and they keep on wanting me to buy their book. It's seriously driving me crazy. I'm sick of hearing about them. But I can't get away from them, they're everywhere. In my f**king face." Stan then responded, "Look, Kyle, we just kind of don't care about some dumb prince and his stupid wife."

Following the episode, it was rumored that Harry and Meghan were planning to pursue legal action against the series. However, the royal couple's spokesperson denied the reports in a statement. "It's all frankly nonsense. Totally baseless, boring reports," the rep said to PEOPLE.
