Royal fans are outraged after Emmys host Cedric the Entertainer made Archie Mountbatten-Windsor the butt of a joke during the ceremony.
The tot's parents, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, were roasted by the comedian on stage as he reflected on their bombshell Oprah interview.
The 2021 Emmy Awards host, 57, told the star-studded ceremony in Los Angeles: "As great as The Crown is, it pales in comparison to the real monarchy.
"I mean that Oprah interview with Prince Harry and Meghan. That was the real tea right there, wasn’t it!?"
"Meghan must put it on that boy because he renounced his throne quicker than Eddie Murphy in Coming to America."
But when he later mentioned the couple's two-year-old son, Twitter went wild with outrage.
Talking to a reduced crowd at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, the stand-up star said: "I can't believe they were talking about that little baby like that, little Archie. How dark that little baby gonna be.
"They need little Archie! Charles can't dance, who else going to teach them how to TikTok. I can just see it now, baby Archie with the Queen like, 'Come on Gammy'."
"Meghan and Harry are public figures so that's fair play but it's low bringing a baby into it," one Twitter user said.
"Too far, Cedric," said another.
"It's one thing to humiliate grown people – but a baby?" one said.
Harry and Meghan's sensational sit-down chat with Oprah caused shockwaves when it was released back in March.
Following its broadcast on television in both America and the UK, the Palace responded to the claims made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
A statement issued on behalf of the Queen read: "The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan. The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning.
"While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members."
In the fictional Royal world, The Crown enjoyed success at The Emmy Awards on Sunday – taking home four major gongs.
The Netflix series, which chronicles the history of the British royal family, scooped the prize for best drama on the night – giving the streaming giant its first ever victory in one of TV's biggest honours.
Olivia Colman was awarded the Emmy for best actress in a drama for her role of Queen Elizabeth II in the fourth season of the drama.
She becomes the second actress to win for a portrayal of the monarch on The Crown, with Claire Foy previously being crowned the winner in 2018.
