THE Simpsons wants Harry and Meghan to do the voices for their cartoon characters on the show.

The Simpsons producers have offered the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, a voiceover job on the show.

Bosses have discussed the prospect of the Sussexes doing a cameo but have yet to approach them.

Producer Al Jean said: “We’ve talked about Harry and Meghan. I hear she wants to do voiceover work. So if they’re reading this, give us a call!”

Meghan, who is married to Prince Harry, is reportedly keen to get back into acting after rising to fame on Suits. Harry was overheard at July’s Lion King premiere telling Disney chief Bob Iger that his wife was interested in voiceovers. That didn't appear to elicit into a job offer from Disney, but it caught the eye of The Simpsons' showrunner, Al Jean.

"We've talked about Harry and Meghan," he said.

"I hear she wants to do voiceover work, so if they're reading this, give us a call."

The Simpsons' producers also discussed the controversy around the character of Indian store owner Apu. It's been widely criticised as being racist, as the man who voices him is white and speaks in an Indian accent. Actor Hank Azaria recently revealed he will no longer voice the character.

Actress Yeardley Smith, who voices Lisa, also told Radio Times the show wants climate campaigner Greta Thunberg for a cameo.

Yeardley said: “It’d be great if Greta plays herself.”

She'd be passing through Springfield and find that she has so much in common with Lisa.

Sir Paul McCartney famously made a guest appearance in an episode in which Lisa stopped eating meat, and show bosses had to promise to keep Lisa as a vegetarian.

Jean said: "Every time I see him, he always checks and he's always surrounded by nine or 10 lawyers, so it's quite frightening!"
