Following Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's decision to abdicate their royal duties as senior members of the Royal Family, actor Laurence Fox has claimed that the duchess may have been disappointed for not getting the attention she craved. 

According to a report, the White Lines star said that he believed Meghan Markle wanted attention even as the sensational couple has announced that the reason for their departure was for them to become financially independent. 

Laurence had been commenting in an article he had written for The Spectator that the Duchess of Sussex was not actually forced to leave the U.K. because she was mixed-race, but that she was not contented with the attention she had gathered.

In the article, much of his comments circled on his appearance on Question Time earlier this year. He accused Meghan of racism for calling him "a white privileged male."

He believes that Meghan's actions were an act of "heresy" and denied that Meghan had left the country due to racism issues. "Meghan Markle might, just might, have left for other reasons," he added.

Drawing from his experiences as an actor, Laurence said he has come to think that the Duchess could be leaving due to an unsatisfied "desire to be the centre of attention."

In the same piece published in The Spectator, he also commented on Prince Harry  who appeared to have "drooped into a sop" and added that the brave and admired Prince has been becoming less of the person he once was as he has just been  following around Meghan's opinion of things.

His appearance on Question Time had resulted to a heated exchange with Rachel Boyle who is a university lecturer. They reportedly had opposing views regarding Harry's decision to abdicate his royal duties. 

When Rachel said, "She’s a black woman and she has been torn to pieces," Laurence had openly disagreed and denied that it had anything to do with racism. 

The said exchange on Question Time had reportedly increased the number death threats Laurence has since received after the show aired, and could affect how he will be perceived in his future job applications.
