He’s the straight-talking, flamboyant interiors judge on Australian reality series House Rules.
It comes after the British-born style guru was overlooked for the refurbishment of the Royal couple’s new Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage.
‘Her style is dull!’ Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen [L], 54, slammed Meghan Markle’s [R], 37, dress sense, in an interview with News Corp on Saturday
‘Meghan is far too dull, she’d run screaming from me,’ Laurence said, following the news that renovations are being overseen by interior designer Vicky Charles.
The choice to go with Vicky may have come as a shock for Laurence, who previously worked on the interiors for the Queen and Prince Phillip.
Laurence did however have praise for the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker-Bowles.
Not holding back: ‘Meghan is far too dull, she’d run screaming from me,’ Laurence said of the Duchess of Sussex. Pictured in February 2019
‘My only hope for a proper, decent royal commission is when we get a Queen Camilla,’ he told News Corp. ‘She’s just over the garden fence and I’m very much hoping for a royal command.’
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage, has just undergone a £3 million [AU $5 million] renovation.
Official plans submitted to Windsor and Maidenhead Council this month, reveal the interior decor to likely feature a range of stone, grey and taupe hues, coupled with Nepalese cashmere blankets and throws for comfort.
Elsewhere, the renovations include a nursery, believed to incorporate a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and a well-stocked playroom.

Last July, Laurence offered some design suggestions for the nursery of the Royal couple’s firstborn.
‘My grandson has been living in a nursery that I’ve decorated with some very scary dragons,’ he told Yahoo Lifestyle at the time.
Having planned parties for Harry’s mother, the late Princess Diana, Laurence said that sophistication is a great asset when designing a child’s room.
‘I always think that actually you shouldn’t dumb down design just because a kid’s a kid, children have a very receptive eye!’ he explained.
