Prince Harry appears to be causing a stir everywhere he goes. After dropping his bombshell memoir, Spare, a controversial interview with the Duke of Sussex aired in the later hours, leaving many at a loss for words.

During his pre-taped appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, which aired Tuesday, January 10, Harry not only shared more jaw-dropping claims about his royal life, but also appeared to make a mockery out of the monarchy.

The episode began with Harry being greeted at the New York City studio by two trumpet heralds wearing regal uniforms. The red-headed royal is seen walking along a red carpet while the trumpeters begin their fanfare.

Tom Hanks is then seen rounding the corner, joking: "I'm back! Where's my fanfare?"

Though the skit was likely not made with ill-intent, it didn't sit well with royal fans, who took to social media to express their upset with the duke for his role in it all.

One online user bashed King Charles III's youngest son for "mocking the monarchy," while another doubled down, "Ridiculous. Embarrassing. Unnecessary. Unpleasant. Wrong."

"I wonder how they would like it if we mocked their culture and traditions?" pondered a third, with a fourth adding: "You are a disgrace Harry."

Once sitting on the host's coveted guest couch, the two divulged in an honest conversation about Harry's drama with his family, namely his older brother, Prince William.
