“This is going to have to be a conversation that Kate and William have to uncomfortably have with George about why this matters, and George at eight will not understand why this is happening.
“I just think it’s really inappropriate to go after a kid.
“Go after the Royal Family, I think there is plenty of stuff to make fun of with Charles, Camilla, William or anyone else but kids should be off-limits in my opinion.”
During her appearance on Good Morning Britain, Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu condemned the series, saying: “Creating a parody to poke fun at an eight-year-old is not funny. It’s uncalled for and it goes against our collective sense of responsibility.”
The 12-episode animated series mocking the Royal Family premiered on HBO on July 29 and has received mixed reactions from critics and the public.
Prince George features as the central character and is portrayed as a shallow, self-obsessed influencer who enjoys spreading gossip about his royal relatives.
Gary Janetti, the creator and writer of the series, developed the show after building a large Instagram following where he regularly posted cartoons of the young prince.
His younger siblings Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are also featured in the series.
The show has also come under criticism for its portrayal of Prince Philip, who is shown to be near death and is force-fed by his royal relatives.
In one scene, Prince William is seen pouring tea into the mouth of the motionless Duke and a recurring joke is that he is recharged overnight.
Other members of the Royal Family who are negatively portrayed include Camilla, who is frequently referred to as a horse, and the Queen, who wields a pistol and utters a constant string of expletives.
The show attracted a number of Hollywood A-listers to voice characters, including Orlando Bloom, Sophie Turner and Alan Cumming.
Gary Janetti defended the show and said “Everything is meant with affection.”
Members of the Royal Family and Buckingham Palace have not commented on the show.
