The duo touched on a 2005 episode called 'Trapped in the Closet and Coming Out of the Closet' which mocked Tom Cruise and Scientology. They said: "Everyone knew Scientology was so litigious. People in Hollywood were scared of Scientology at the time because they would just sue you."
"I think that got us going. The Tom Cruise episode was really about getting sued. I mean, poking openly litigious people and seeing where the line is and what you can say. They picked a fight with us and we just went with it. That episode is what that is about — they bullied Hollywood and scared people into [fearing] saying the word ‘Scientology.'"
It comes after claims by a The Spectator source that Markle is "annoyed by South Park but refuses to watch it all."
She is also said to be "upset and overwhelmed" by the show's depiction of the pair.
Royal commentator Neil Sean also claimed that the ex-royals' legal team are watching closely. "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," he said.
"Their legal team are casting an eye over the episode to see what is wrong, and what could be turned into something more sinister."
Their rep since told The Post on Tuesday (21 February) that Harry and Meghan thought the episode was "all frankly nonsense … totally baseless and boring" and denied they would be suing the comedy series.
The episode saw main character Kyle call the couple the "dumb prince and his stupid wife," adding: "They have this huge jet parked in front of my house and they keep on wanting me to buy their book."
Another scene accused the character of 'Meghan' of "bossing" her husband around, saying: "I’m sick of hearing about them! I can’t get away from them! They are in my f***ing face!"
In a third scene, the couple appeared on Good Morning Canada demandingtheir right to privacy and sharing their hate for journalists.
