Brian Cox: Succession star says Meghan Markle ‘knew what she was getting into’ when she married Harry
Brian Cox has claimed that Meghan Markle “knew what she was getting into” when she married into the royal family, repeating his call for the monarchy to be abolished.
The 76-year-old actor, who appears on HBO as media mogul Logan Royal successorShe apparently criticized the Duchess of Sussex for entering the family with the expectation that she and Harry could “cut themselves off” from the royal establishment.
“You can’t go into a system where someone has already been trained to behave a certain way and then just expect them to shut down,” he reportedly said Haute Living New York.
“I mean, she knew what she was getting into,” he added.
The actor, who previously expressed his support for the abolition of the monarch, added that he thought Meghan had an “ambition” in marrying Harry, he reports MailOnline.
“In my opinion, we shouldn’t have a monarchy. It’s not viable; it makes no sense.”
He said that although royalists would say the system was a “tradition”, his thoughts were “F**k it, move on”.
The Independent has reached out to representatives of the Sussexes for comment.
In 2020, Cox recounted ES Magazine that the British royal family should be abolished after the Queen’s death in order to get rid of its “feudal influence on our culture”.
Two years before Queen Elizabeth II’s death, he said: “I think the Queen is an amazing woman and what she has done is incredible.
“But once she’s gone the whole damn shooting should be over, I really think so.
“Until then, we will not end this feudal influence on our culture and system.”
The new series of successor will be broadcast in the UK on March 24th.
