Princess Kate’s uncle Gary Goldsmith slams Prince Harry for throwing the royal family ‘under the bus’ and defends her against false claims she was the ‘royal racist’ ahead of entering the Celebrity Big Brother house


The Princess of Wales‘s uncle Gary Goldsmith has slammed Prince Harry for throwing the royal family ‘under the bus’ – defending Kate against claims she was the ‘royal racist’. 

Mr Goldsmith, who entered the Celebrity Big Brother house as a contestant tonight, described his royal niece as ‘beautiful’ and branded the racism claims against her as ‘bull****’. 

In an interview with The Sun, Mr Goldsmith said: ‘She’s beautiful on the outside, but more beautiful on the inside and really is a doting mum. 

‘That’s why I got so upset with Harry and Meghan because you don’t put a stick into that spoke and reinvent history.

‘I’ve got pretty miffed when they had a pop at my beautiful niece who couldn’t say anything for herself.’ 

Mr Goldsmith’s comments come after Kate and King Charles were identified by author Omid Scobie as those alleged to have asked Meghan and Harry what colour Archie’s skin might be before he was born.

‘It’s absolute bull**** and I didn’t hide my feelings very well when I was offered the opportunity to say something,’ said Mr Goldsmith. ‘Kate is 100 per cent not racist.’ 

Mr Goldsmith’s appearance on CBB has been described as the ‘last thing [Kate] needs’ as her recovery continues, a royal expert said today.

Mr Goldsmith, the outspoken brother of Kate’s mother Carole Middleton, entered the house tonight as the ITV reboot of the reality television show begins.

Kate’s uncle said Kate could be watching ITV’s Celebrity Big Brother from ‘behind a sofa’ as he entered the house.

Presenter AJ Odudu asked him: ‘The nation needs to know, will Kate be watching?’

He said: ‘If she is it will be behind a sofa, I guess.’

In a video tape which aired before he entered the house, Goldsmith said: ‘She is simply perfect.

‘First time I met William, Catherine was cooking and William said, ”Hi, do you want a cup of tea?” Very normal.

Royal commentator Phil Dampier said that while the 58-year-old businessman will likely go into the house ‘determined to only say nice things’ about Kate and William, ‘after several days his tongue may loosen and he may say things he later regrets’.

Kate is away from official royal engagements until after Easter after major surgery in January, with Kensington Palace insisting last week that she was still ‘doing well’.

She has not been seen at any royal events since attending church at Sandringham on Christmas Day with William and their children George, Charlotte and Louis.

But a reality TV appearance for ‘black sheep’ Mr Goldsmith will cause a headache for the royals amid speculation about Kate as she recovers from abdominal surgery.

Mr Goldsmith reportedly tried to gain a spot on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here last year, but was turned down over concerns it could embarrass his niece. 

He is said to have told friends that he won’t do anything to hurt Kate or William – but he has previously attacked Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and they could therefore now be in the firing line.

And Mr Dampier told MailOnline today: ‘The last thing the Princess of Wales needs at the moment is for her uncle to be talking about her on Celebrity Big Brother.

‘And I’m not surprised at reports her mother Carole is not happy with her brother being in the house.

‘I’m sure he will go in there determined to only say nice things about her and William as he has in the past. And he probably intends to criticise Harry and Meghan if he gets the chance.

‘But after several days his tongue may loosen and he may say things he later regrets.’

The commentator also warned that ‘any indication about Kate’s medical condition will not go down well with her or William’, adding: ‘I’m sure Gary wants to support his family but giving more publicity to them at the moment is not what they want.’

Mr Dampier said it would be interesting to know whether Mr Goldsmith consulted Carole or Kate before deciding to go into the house, which ‘presumably he is doing for the money’.

And he continued: ‘He has caused embarrassment for them in the past with his Maison de Bang Bang misdemeanours, but he has cleaned up his act in recent years and mainly stayed out of the limelight.

‘The Big Brother bosses will want him to spill the beans – after all why else would he be in there? – but Kate and William will be hoping he manages to be sensible and focus on other housemates and their problems.’
