Prince Harry ridiculed as servant to Meghan Markle in Cinderella humiliation

Prince Harry has been ridiculed as a servant to Meghan Markle in a tongue-in-cheek jibe at a Christmas pantomime.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex found themselves on the receiving end of ridicule at Woking's New Victoria Theatre last night (Tuesday, December 6) during a performance of Cinderella.

The on-stage slam comes right before the release of the couple's six-part docuseries Harry & Meghan, the first volume of which is set to land on Netflix tomorrow (Thursday, December 8).

The Mirror has revealed Harry was dug out at last night's performance during a scene where servant Dandini was pretending to be the prince while helping him track down the girl with the glass slipper.

Turning to the audience, Dandini said: "This is so exciting! I’ll be like Prince Harry… coming Meghan!"

The joke reportedly brought the house down, with the Mirror understanding that it was added to the performance in last minute rehearsals.

One theatre-goer told the publication: "It’s no surprise that a pantomime about a prince finding his one true love has a joke at Harry and Meghan’s expense, especially with the Netflix series about to launch, but it was just a bit of lighthearted fun."

Cinderella at Woking's New Victoria Theatre runs until December 31. It stars EastEnders actor and TV comedian Brian Conley as Buttons.

Meanwhile, the world awaits the Sussexes' Netflix series after an explosive second trailer was released on Monday (December 5).

In it, Harry slammed the "dirty game" of Royal Family life, lamented the "pain and suffering of women marrying into" the Firm and promised the "full truth".
