Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have put themselves at the center of attention.
But the Duke and Duchess of Sussex might actually try to avoid the spotlight after catching their latest drubbing.
And Megyn Kelly left Meghan Markle stunned in silence with just two words about her political career.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly want to become the next Barack and Michelle Obama.
Meghan wants to run for Congress in California, Sky News Australia reported.
That’s according to royal author Tom Bower who says Markle sees “her future as a congresswoman for California.”
But the couple recently fell under the crosshairs of the hit TV show South Park.
Now Megyn Kelly says that means any hopes Meghan Markle has of a political career are “now dashed.”
South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker have always implemented a “take no prisoners” approach to comedy.
The comedy duo have poked fun of Republicans, Democrats and celebrities of all shapes and stripes.
Throughout the show’s 26 seasons and more than 320 episodes South Park has made fun of Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Michael Jackson, Matt Damon, Mel Gibson, Paris Hilton, George Lucas, the entire state of New Jersey, both the Mormon Church and the supposed “church” of Scientology and so many more.
On a recent episode, South Park parodied the tabloid life of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle.
South Park rolls out the royal carpet
In the episode, the “Queen of Canada” passes away – much like Queen Elizabeth did last year.
Further, the “Prince of Canada” and his wife are not in good standing with the “Royal Canadian Family” – again, much the same as Harry and Meghan are aren’t on speaking terms with the rest of Britain’s royal family following a series of unfortunate event, all starting once Markle married into the family.
Parker and Stone depict the “Prince of Canada” and spouse as attention-seeking, needy people – whom whenever they receive the attention they’re crying out for, they complain of a lack of privacy.

Harry and Meghan have been actively seeking out publication opportunities, like sitting down for interviews with Oprah and their own Netflix documentary.
And in each televised occurrence, they complain that no one respects their privacy.
The residents of South Park catch on to the charade and decide to ignore the royal Canadians.
And Megyn Kelly says that’s the end of the line for any ambitions Markle may have had for political office.
“You know it’s bad when your PR tour lands you a little skit, a great skit, on South Park,” said on her hit podcast the Megyn Kelly Show. “They have jumped the shark, they are not beloved and her hopes of running for president, reported hopes, are all but dashed. When ‘South Park’ turns on you, there’s no recovering.”
The big punchline of the South Park episode has the “Prince of Canada” exposing his penis in public as a final attempt to be noticed.
Much of South Park’s loyal audience is laughing at the joke – but not Markle.
No laughing matter?
In fact, the Daily Mail is reporting that the Duchess of Sussex is “upset and overwhelmed” over her portrayal in the cartoon.
“According to a source in California, Meghan spent the last few days ‘upset and overwhelmed’ over how she was portrayed,” The Daily Mail reported. “The source told The Spectator that the Duchess of Sussex ‘is annoyed by South Park but refuses to watch it all.’”
Markle is in such a huff about the parody that, according to the Daily Mail, she’s getting lawyers involved.
“According to sources close to the ex-royals, it appears that, like so many things with Meghan and Harry, this may have legal ramifications attached,” the Daily Mail reported. “Their legal team are casting an eye over the episode to see what is wrong, and what could be turned into something more sinister.”
The last laugh
Markle is unlikely to find any success in the U.S. court system, where jokes are part of protected free speech under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.
Furthermore, celebrities who complain about their South Park treatment tend to end up as the butt of even more jokes at their expense.
Soul singer Isaac Hayes was vocal complaining about how Parker and Stone portrayed Scientology – so much so he abruptly quit the show back in 2005 after eight years voicing the character, Chef.
The South Park creators responded by turning the Chef character into a sexual offender and then killing him off.
In other words, be on the lookout for more Meghan Markle jokes coming to South Park soon – especially if she actually starts making moves to launch a political career.
