Sophie Turner is being called out by some fans for her latest role.

Turner voices 6-year-old Princess Charlotte in the new animated series "The Prince," which parodies the royal family and portrays some of them in a negative light.

The HBO Max cartoon makes fun of several royal family members, including 8-year-old Prince George and his parents Prince William, who is voiced by Turner's former "Game of Thrones" costar Iwan Rheon, and Kate Middleton, who is voiced by Lucy Punch.

When Turner shared a poster of the series on Instagram, hundreds commented criticizing her decision to take part in it.

Many pointed out that the former "Game of Thrones" actress has asked for privacy for her own child, but is parodying the young Princess Charlotte in the new show, calling this decision hypocritical.

E! News reported in May that Turner posted a since-deleted video to her Instagram slamming the paparazzi who took photos of her then-10-month-old daughter Willa.

"I just want to say that the reason that I am not posting pictures of my daughter and making sure that we can avoid paparazzi at all costs is because I explicitly do not want those photos out there," Turner said, according to E! News. In the video, she also called it "f--king creepy" that "grown old men" are taking pictures of her baby, who "did not ask for this life."

"I'm sickened, I'm disgusted, and I'm respectfully asking everyone to stop following us around and stop trying to take pictures of our daughter and especially printing them," she said.

Several commenters on Turner's Instagram post about "The Prince" asked how she would feel if her own daughter was being "mocked" like Princess Charlotte is in the animated show.

The criticism also spread beyond the comments section of Turner's post. On Twitter, fans called both Turner and Orlando Bloom, who voices Prince Harry in the show, hypocrites.

One person tweeted: "Sophie Turner wants privacy for her own child but thinks it's ok to be part of something that makes fun of and spreads lies about other children of famous people."

The show has been met with severe backlash and a huge amount of negative press.

Insider reached out to Turner's representatives for comment but didn't immediately hear back.
