Orlando Bloom and Prince Harry have another connection — Bloom voiced Harry in “The Prince,” a cartoon created by Gary Janetti that made fun of the royal family. The satire has been criticized for being mean-spirited, but before the show’s release, Bloom spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about playing Harry and what he thought about the show. “I’m not someone who wants to poke fun at anyone normally,” Bloom said, “but this was so clever, witty and affectionately done. Actually Katy [Perry] saw one bit of it and was like, ‘You’ve got to do this. This is genius.’”
Bloom didn’t meet Harry until sometime after agreeing to voice him in “The Prince.” He told the outlet, “This guy is so nice, and I think he’s got a great sense of humor. I hope he maintains that through this because they’re sort of on a pedestal.” He added that the teasing “is done with affection” and “it’s a sign of appreciation.”
Harry never publicly shared how he felt about “The Prince,” but there was some potential animosity between his and Bloom’s wives. Meghan Markle reportedly held a grudge against Perry, due to comments the pop star made about her wedding dress.
