A day doesn’t go by anymore without some mention of some member of the British Royals somewhere. But starting late tonight, HBO Max goes beyond the gossip and brings us an entire comedy series about them to telly.

Enter The Prince — which premieres with all 12 episodes tonight, Thursday, July 29, at midnight PT (3 AM ET), exclusively on HBO Max.

The Prince is a satirical take about the imagined inner workings of the Royal Family through the eyes of an animated Prince George, the youngest heir to the throne, as he spills all the royal “tea” on his family, followers, and the monarchy. In short, a one-of-a-kind parody of Buckingham Palace’s residents and staff.

The star-studded voice cast includes series creator Gary Janetti (Family Guy) as the fictionalized Prince George, alongside the voice talents of Orlando Bloom (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) as Prince Harry, Alan Cumming (The Good Wife) as George’s butler Owen, Frances de la Tour (Professor T) as Queen Elizabeth, Lucy Punch (Motherland) as Kate Middleton, Condola Rashad (Billions) at Meghan Markle, Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) as Prince William, Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) as Prince Charles, and Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) as Princess Charlotte.

Guest stars include Paul Anderson (Peaky Blinders), Samuel Barnett (The Barking Murders), and Sacha Dhawan (The Great) as various voices; and as themselves: Andy Cohen, Brad Goreski, and Kelly Ripa, as well as Garcelle Beuavais, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, Teddi Mellencamp, Kyle Richards, and Lisa Rinna from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Produced by 20th Television Animation with animation by Bento Box, The Prince is created, written, and executive produced by four-time Emmy® Awards nominee Gary Janetti (Will & Grace), and produced by Eli Dolleman (The Cleveland Show). The animation is executive produced by Emmy® winners Joel Kuwahara and Scott Greenberg (Bob’s Burgers) and produced by Leanne Moreau (Young Justice).
