Sophie Turner, renowned for her performance as “Sansa Stark” in Game of Thrones now joins HBO Max for their Royal Family Animated Series “The Prince”. Sophia had joined as the voice cast for Princess Charlotte. Creator and executive producer Gary Janetti made the announcement on his Instagram account, which inspired the series, with a clip tied to Halloween.
“Meet Charlotte – Sophie Turner @sophiet The Prince coming to @hbomax” Gary Janetti captioned the Instagram post.
The animated comedy series will air on HBO Max and it’s inspired by Janetti‘s hilarious Instagram account, which is known for its satire of British Royals through the eyes of a young Prince George, eldest child of Prince William and Princess Kate. “The Prince” is produced by 20th Television.
As per HBO, “The Prince” is a look through the life of Prince George, the youngest heir to the British throne, as he navigates the trials and tribulations of being a royal child. In each episode, George will find his path in life as a young prince in modern times – from the 775 rooms of Buckingham Palace to his family’s sea of corgis to primary school with commoners. The Prince also features notable characters in George’s life such as his parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, his fourth-in-line-for-the-throne little sister Charlotte, his modern Aunt Meghan and Uncle Harry, his great-grandad Philip, and – who can forget – his Gan Gan Elizabeth”.
Janetti will star in the series as Prince George, along with Orlando Bloom as Prince Harry, Alan Cumming as George’s butler Owen, Lucy Punch as Kate Middleton, Condola Rashad at Meghan Markle, Frances De La Tour as Queen Elizabeth, Iwan Rheon as Prince William and Sophie as Princess Charlotte.
