Brian Cox: Meghan Markle ‘knew what she was getting into’ marrying Prince Harry
Brian Cox believes Meghan Markle “knew what she was getting into” marrying Prince Harry.
The “Succession” star claimed in a Haute Living New York interview, published Wednesday, that Markle “clearly” had “ambitions” of joining the royal family before tying the knot in 2018.
The actor, 76, alleged that Markle had “the childhood dreams of marrying Prince Charming and all that s–t we see as fantasy that could be our lives in our dreams.”
Cox noted that the “Suits” alum, 41, shouldn’t be surprised by the drama she and Harry, 38, created by exiting the royal family.
“You can’t go into a system where somebody’s already been trained to behave in a certain kind of way and then just expect them to cut themselves off,” he explained.
“I mean, she knew what she was getting into.”
Later in the interview, the Emmy winner said he would like to see the United Kingdom “move on” from the royals.
“In my opinion, we shouldn’t have a monarchy,” Cox said. “It’s not viable; it doesn’t make any sense. F–k it.”
The Golden Globe winner has defended Markle and Harry in the past, telling “Good Morning Britain” viewers in December 2022 that they endured “something clearly traumatic” before stepping back.
“I don’t think they made it up, I don’t think it’s false,” Cox said of their allegations. “I think it’s true and should’ve been rectified, and it hasn’t.”
