Kim Kardashian wipes mobile game level ‘based on Meghan & Harry’ after backlash

05/27/2021

Kim Kardashian has removed a level of her game after fans spotted a very similar story to that of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

The mobile game Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, launched in 2014, but the most recent update added a level about Princess Bianca and her husband Prince Aston.

The new level was entitled the Royal Runaways and spoke about how the fictional pair wanted to quit the royal life and felt unwelcome with the family.

Royal Runaway also mentioned a confrontation with the Queen and a sit down interview like the one Harry & Meghan did with Oprah Winfrey.

Following the interview, the Queen says to the player: "I suppose you're quite proud of yourself digging into my family's business on television" before the couple announced they are quitting the family.

The object of the storyline for the player was to hold an auction to help the prince and princess leave royal life while Kim deals with the press.

Kim has since had the level of the mobile game removed and said she was not aware of the Royal Runaways in the game.

The game was removed following fans noticing the similarities between Princess Bianca and her husband Prince Aston and the recent claims from Meghan and Harry’s experiences.

Some accused the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star of cashing in on Meghan and Harry’s story but Kim says she was unaware of the story in the game.

Glu Mobile, who develop Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, said they have now removed the game.

Speaking to DailyMail.com, a spokesperson for Glu said: "We heard a lot of valuable feedback around our recent Prince Aston and Princess Bianca quest.

"It’s clear we missed the mark with this, and we sincerely apologize.

"We did not intend to direct any negativity towards any particular person or groups of people. The content is no longer live in the game."

A source close to Kim also told DailyMail.com that the star was unaware of the storyline in the app and asked for it to be immediately taken down which she found out.

The source added: "She is disappointed that this happened and has requested an internal investigation to ensure that this misstep doesn’t happen again."
