Adding: “Because his succession isn’t coming any time soon, 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.”

Furthermore, HBO Max tweeted about the show as well. They wrote, “The Prince, which follows an animated Prince George spilling all that British Royal Tea.”

Sarah Aubrey, Head of originals at HBO Max also said, “We’re so excited to bring the world Gary’s created on Instagram over to HBO Max, where our viewers can discover what his Instagram fans already know – that George can be hilarious, shocking and surprisingly sweet. We can’t wait to see what Gary does with a bigger canvas to paint on than just a 1:1 square.”
