Last year, the show’s creators were accused of “cheap shots” after a trailer for the upcoming show poked fun at Prince George was revealed, and critics said the young royal could be negatively affected by his portrayal in the eight-part series.

A producer from rival Disney said: “It’s one thing for filmmakers to play fast and loose with the truth on shows like The Crown, but making fun of a seven-year-old seems cruel and unfair.

“Some things should be banned. It is immorally wrong to use a child to get a cheap laugh.”

While television critic Katherine Singh said, “It’s important to remember that George is still a child who hasn’t said anything in his life.

“What we say about people, even those who seem untouchable like members of the royal family, can seriously and negatively affect people. Prince George is old enough to understand what’s going on.

However, Mr Giannetti, who first started poking fun at the royal family on his Instagram account, defended the show.

He said, “I hope he finds it very funny, has a sense of humor about it, and obviously sees that it’s all done with love.”
