The Royal Family has been going out of its way to include Meghan Markle, a design icon has said. Changing Rooms star Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen praised the royals for uniting after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. But he said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would stay in the US.

Mr Llewelyn-Bowen said: “Well, I think it’s going to be difficult. They obviously have to weigh up how much time they’re going to spend in the UK and by the sounds of it they’re going to be pretty US-based for the near future.

“That’s obviously where Meghan feels a lot safer and it reflects her and her personality a lot more than being over here.

“It’s complicated over here. We’re rather weird. On one hand, we are very supportive and on the other we expect royalty to be good value and work hard for us.”

He added: “I think it’s difficult for someone like her to get the balance right, but the big thing we can all see happening is that the rest of the Royal Family are going out of their way to make her feel like she does feel part of what’s going on and feel very cherished.

“They’ve made a real point about that and when you look back at all the to-ing and fro-ing it was all conjecture. We don’t know at all. We don’t know the conversations being had or what was being said. We don’t know whether people were making her feel welcome or not.

“But to me, it looks very much as if she’s always been welcome.”

He told the Daily Star: “In-laws are never easy, my goodness, but royal in-laws, wow that’s complicated.”

Mr Llewelyn-Bowen’s comments come amid claims Buckingham Palace aides are plotting to block Harry’s bombshell memoir, which was due to be published this autumn.


The Duke has pledged the work will be an accurate and “wholly truthful” account of his life.

A friend of King Charles III reportedly told the Daily Mail: “The question inside the Palace is: ‘Can the book be stopped?’

“It may be that even Harry can’t stop it at this stage, but the feeling at the very top is that there’s no good that can come of airing grievances in public.”

Grant Harrolds, a former royal butler to Harry, William and Charles, told GB News the memoir would be a “disaster” for the Sussexes.

He said: “Things like this book would be a disaster for [Harry and Meghan].

“These are things they have to consider if they want a way back in.”

His remarks came amid claims Harry and Meghan are looking to take on a more active role in the Royal Family.

Meanwhile, the Duchess of Sussex’s podcast, Archetypes, is due to return to Spotify tomorrow (October 4).

The period of royal mourning ended last week with the monarchy and its households returning to official duties.

A message on the Archetypes Spotify page said: “Regularly scheduled episodes will resume Tuesday, October 4.”

Before its pause, three episodes of the audio series had been released since its launch on August 23.

It features conversations with veteran tennis player Serena Williams, pop star Mariah Carey and actress, writer and producer Mindy Kaling.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed a lucrative deal with the audio streaming giant to host and produce podcasts, estimated to be worth about £18million in late 2020.

A Netflix documentary series is also reportedly being held back by the Sussexes after the death of Elizabeth II.

It is believed the couple want edits made to present the family in a better light.

Mr Llewelyn-Bowen’s new book More More More: Making Maximalism Work in Your Home and Life is published by Dorling Kindersley.
