Meghan Markle finds it hard to live in UK and feels far safer to be herself in US

Megan Markle "finds it hard to live in the UK" and feels "far safer to be herself" in the US, according to interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.

The star of Changing Rooms, 57, made the comments during an interview with the Daily Star where he theorised that Meghan finds it "difficult" to get the balance right in the UK.

The publication quizzed Laurence over whether he thought the couple might become more UK-based if they inherited property from the Queen.

Laurence answered, saying: "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."

The TV legend defended the Royal Family, arguing that they have been "going out of their way" to include Meghan lately.

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 towing and throwing 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 know whether people were making her feel welcome or not.

"But to me, it looks very much as if she's always been welcome.

"In-laws are never easy, my goodness, but royal in-laws, wow, that's complicated."

The 57 year old has just released his new book, More More More: Making Maximalism Work in Your Home and Life.

Discussing his new book, he said: "Maximalism feels like it happened overnight but actually I think it comes from the moment we all felt imprisoned inside our grey painted cells and suddenly we realised that didn't reflect who we are.

"People started redecorating using colour and wallpaper and things they found in the attic to make things a very dense and personal space.

"So, basically, it's the moment when the lunatics take over the design asylum, and I've always been must more lunatic than asylum, so I'm delighted."
