"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 said of how she reacted to what should have been her new normal. "I mean, she knew what she was getting into."

The Scotland-born star has discussed Meghan and Prince Harry's journey in December 2022, though back then, he defended their decision to leave the royal family. Cox said he thinks something "traumatic" must have happened to the Sussexes for them to make such a drastic change, adding of the couple's allegations against the monarchy, "I don’t think they made it up, I don’t think it’s false."

"I think it’s true and should’ve been rectified, and it hasn’t," the Emmy nominee added.
