If there's one thing we all need this year, it's a good laugh and luckily, the entertainment Gods have been generous. We binged Emily in Paris, laughed through Holidate and we're already excited for Bridgerton. But now a brand new animation spoofing the royal family is coming, with Sophie Turner playing Princess Charlotte. Yep, seriously. 

The Game of Thrones star has been cast to voice the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's daughter in new cartoon, The Prince, and judging by the hilarious teaser clip, it's about to become everyone's favourite watch.

The show has been written and produced by Gary Janetti, who took inspiration from his popular satirical Instagram page - a parody of the royal family, narrating from the perspective of Prince William and Kate Middleton's eldest son Prince George.

Janetti, who is also behind hit comedies like Will and Grace and Family Guy, announced the casting on Saturday night, introducing Sophie as little Charlotte.  

Sharing the teaser clip, he wrote in the caption: "Meet Charlotte - Sophie Turner @sophiet The Prince coming to @hbomax."

The short video is a Halloween-themed scene where Prince George thought he and his younger siblings would be dressing up as piglets together, only to find out Charlotte and the youngest of the family, Prince Louis, had other ideas. 

"Hey guys it’s me again, Prince George. Getting ready for a Halloween party downstairs," he says, before Charlotte walks in dressed as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. "Hi George, ready?” she says, which leads to his hilarious outburst: "What the hell, Charlotte, what are you wearing?” George asks, to which she replies, “I changed my mind. Pigs are kind of gross.”

No air date has been released for the show just yet but we can't wait, and neither can Sophie's husband Joe Jonas. Sharing Janetti's post on his Insta stories, he wrote: "Cannot wait." 

While Sophie has yet to share the news on her own social media, we're sure she's just as excited!
