Pop star Katy Perry and her mum spent two nights at Windsor Castle in May as a ‘thank you’ to King Charles for starring in his live coronation performance.
Perry raved about her ‘wild night’ at the royal residence, but the singer’s mum has now downplayed the episode, downgrading the 11th-century citadel decor to the drab furniture of a 1980s sitcom. the fifties.
Mary Hudson described the interior as “1960s I Love Lucy style” (although I Love Lucy, starring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, actually ran from 1951 to 1957).
Last night the Hollywood offering said: “I’m not sure the King would be happy with the interior of his palace compared to Lucy’s, which featured nylon couches, lampshades and questionable wallpaper.
“The decor of the show is very dated and old fashioned and that may be what Katie’s mum is talking about.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are neighbors.
Hudson’s harsh assessment of Windsor Castle’s furnishings could also be defined by her daughter’s ultra-sleek abode.

Her remark about Windsor Castle appeared in an article written by columnist Richard Mineard in the local Montecito Journal.
Mary is quoted as saying: “We met Charles and his sister Princess Anne and they couldn’t have been more charming.

“Staying at the castle was an honor, but the interior was 1960s I Love Lucy style.”
The outlet added: “We think the royals eat off silver platters and live lavishly, so a behind-the-scenes look is always a surprise.”
Perry, 38, spent the evening ahead of the live coronation performance at the palace instead of taking to the stage to shine in a striking metallic gold ball gown.
