Does Prince Harry own a deck of cards in which, among other things, the Queen is blatantly made fun of?
Montecito/London – Laughs Prinz Harry (38) privately at the expense of Queen Elizabeth II († 96), Princess Kate (40) and other relatives? It seems so, at least according to some observant viewers of the controversial Netflix documentary Harry & Meghan.
Prince Harry is attacked – because of “tasteless” card game in Netflix documentary
Anyone who has a penchant for black humor is well served with the parlor game “Cards Against Humanity”: Thanks to its – depending on your feelings – politically incorrect answer cards, with which questions or gaps in texts are completed , the game from the USA quickly became a successful party hit.
This has apparently even gotten through to Prince Harry. Because the “Harry & Meghan” documentary not only provides a lot of criticismbut also interesting insights: In a scene in which Prince Harry appears in uniform, viewers with a particularly keen eye want to have discovered the striking, pitch-black packaging of the macabre card game in the background.
“Cards Against Humanity” – from the student idea to the game hit:
As early as 2008, eight high school students in the US state of Illinois came up with the basic idea behind “Card Against Humanity”, which was then called “Cardenfreude”. A crowdfunding campaign in 2010 raised enough money to print the game; In 2011, a separate company was founded for the production and marketing, Cards Against Humanity LLC. In the USA and other countries, the game was repeatedly criticized for its controversial content (Holocaust, sexism…), but it still became a bestseller.
“This game is sick”: Royal expert shoots against Prince Harry for card game
how nau.ch reported, “Cards Against Humanity” also includes playing cards that talk about “Queen Elizabeth’s flawless A***” or “Kate Middleton’s colonoscopy”. But while Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle (41), especially after their break with the British royal family, are likely to take such statements with humor, they are met with indignant incomprehension from their old homeland.
“This game is sick. It’s ridiculous and absolutely tasteless whether you’re a monarchist or not,” complains Royals expert Ingrid Seward (74) in herThe Sun-Column. The “unfunny” card game should never have been seen in the Netflix documentary, according to her unequivocal verdict (more Promi- & TV-News on RUHR24).
