"The Prince," is the brain child of Gary Janetti, creator of the outlandish animated hit show "The Family Guy" and groundbreaking sitcom "Will & Grace."
The show was inspired by Janetti's Instagram account with close to a million followers, and explores the life of British royalty through the eyes of six-year-old Prince George, the oldest child of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Queen Elizabeth II and Prince George's parents also will be characters - with actors doing their voices of course.
The greenlighting of the animated series comes as Prince Harry and his actress wife attempt to step out of the limelight and away from their roles in the royal family, a move that has roiled Buckingham Palace and dominated British tabloids.
Janetti will write and executive produce "The Prince." Walt Disney Co.'s 20th Century Fox Television is producing the show.
