The voice cast includes Condola Rashad as Meghan Markle, Lucy Punch as Kate Middleton, Orlando Bloom as Prince Harry, Tom Hollander as Prince Philip and Prince Charles, Frances De La Tour as Queen Elizabeth, Alan Cumming as George’s butler, and Iwan Rheon as Prince William.
Orlando Bloom has also spoken about this briefly to the Hollywood Reporter. He said, “I’m not someone who wants to poke fun at anyone normally, but this was so clever, witty, and affectionately done. I hadn’t met [Prince Harry] when I signed up to do it, and I subsequently met him and he’s such a nice guy. This guy is so nice, and I think he’s got a great sense of humour. I hope he maintains that through this because they’re sort of on a pedestal. We’re showing real adoration to them in one form or another. I try to justify it because quite frankly, if I’m honest, it’s not like me to poke fun at anyone but it is done with affection.”
