Despite reports that Meghan Markle was “upset and overwhelmed” by her and hubby Prince Harry’s portrayal in last Wednesday’s episode of South Park, it seems the Deal or No Deal briefcase girl-turned-Dutchess-turned-podcaster is actually pretty unphased by her recent appearance on the show, thank you very much.
Amid rumors that Meghan and Harry were potentially poised to sue over their recent and inexplicably Canadian (?) appearance on the long-running series — “Their legal team are casting an eye over the episode to see what is wrong, and what could be turned into something more sinister,” royal commentator Neil Sean explained to Fox News — it seems such claims couldn’t be further than the truth.

"It's all frankly nonsense. Totally baseless, boring reports,” a rep for the royal couple told People amid the controversy.
During their stint on the episode, entitled "Worldwide Privacy Tour," Meghan and Harry transformed from respectively American and British to Canadian and Canadian, depicted traipsing all over the globe while holding signs reading “we want our privacy” and “stop looking at us,” which same.

So while Shia LeBeouf started the "don't look at me, but please pay attention to me" era, Meghan and Harry have perfected it.
