A new satirical TV show following the royal family has been released - but royal fans aren't impressed.

The 12-episode series - which is centred around eight-year-old Prince George and features some pretty bold parodies of royal family members - is written and produced by Family Guy writer Gary Janetti.

Janetti went viral with his popular Instagram account focused on the young royal, which features memes of George dropping one-liners about his siblings - Princess Charlotte, four, and 20-month-old Prince Louis, as well as his uncle Prince Harry and aunt Meghan Markle.

The official trailer shows George ordering staff around and swearing.

George is voiced by Janetti, while some other huge names feature on the cast list, including Orlando Bloom as Prince Harry, Alan Cumming as George's butler Owen and Sophie Turner as Princess Charlotte.

The animated show's synopsis says: "Before George rules Britannia, he’ll be laying down his own laws in Janetti's comedic take on the future King of England's childhood as seen from the prince's own point of view.

"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.

"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-granddad Philip, and—who can forget—his Gan Gan Elizabeth."
