The mockumentary is the second instalment from writer and satirist Charlie, 50, and co-writer Annabel Jones.The programme takes a tongue in cheek look at the past year, which featured the doom and gloom of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and turmoil within the Royal Family, The Sun reports. At one point, the show looks back on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey, which aired in March.After showing a couple of clips from the chat, a voiceover then said: “After the interview, Prince Philip withdraws from public life permanently, by dying.“Millions watched the funeral of his Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke Of Deadinburgh.”Prince Philip passed away in June aged 99, leaving the Queen and the rest of the Royal Family devastated.With this in mind, viewers were horrified by the moment and took to Twitter to vent.One wrote alongside two crying emojis: “They are wrong for this one #DeathTo2021,”Another added: “#DeathTo2021 is terribly brilliant and chaotic, the Prince Phillip gag was maybe a step too far, though.”A third tweeted: “The Prince Phillip joke was a touch too far and maybe a little distasteful … but the rest of the show was SPOT ON!”A fellow viewer agreed, writing: “I have to say, I don’t usually find things like this funny, but I thoroughly enjoyed. However, the Prince Phillip joke wasn’t needed, he deserves much more respect.”This article originally appeared on The Sun and was reproduced with permission
