The British royal family is bracing for another media coup with the announcement of the publication of Kate Middleton’s uncle Gary Goldsmith’s memoirs.
As revealed by a close source quoted by OK!, the younger brother of Carole Middleton plans to “set the record straight” and give the Middleton family a voice in the face of recent accusations and criticism of the House of Windsor by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Will Kate Middleton’s uncle lash out at Meghan and Harry?
The book, as yet without a confirmed title, is expected to include private details about the family. According to the source, Gary would not reveal secrets that could harm his niece Kate or Prince William.
What Gary would do, however, is respond to the controversial revelations the Sussexes made last year in their docuseries for Netflix and in Prince Harry’s book Spare.
Among the most controversial passages was Harry’s accusation of an alleged physical assault by William during an argument in 2019.
Also, the version that Kate would have made Meghan cry over an incident with Princess Charlotte’s dress before the royal wedding.
Gary Goldsmith harshly qualified these versions, claiming that Harry should never have shared details like a ” young child “.
He even accused Meghan of being jealous of Kate’s ability to play her royal role naturally.
“This made me see red,” Gary told the press. “How dare Harry share such a confidence involving a young child?”
With this context, Kate Middleton’s uncle found support in the public so he could build on the positive reception to his recent statements and include similar views on the Sussexes’ break with the Crown in his book.
If the stories prove controversial, it could have a great impact on Harry and Meghan’s relationship with the royal family. According to the source, the Sussexes are very concerned.
Although Gary will submit the manuscript for review by Carole and Kate before publishing it, there is speculation that it could address thorny issues about living with the Sussexes and the Middletons’ view of the couple’s departure from the royals.
Kate’s uncle is no stranger to controversy, following the 2009 scandal when he was photographed handling cocaine with an escort at his Ibiza villa. Even so, he has remained very close to Carole and Kate, so he would not reveal anything that would directly harm them.
The book adds to the list of facts that keep the Sussex in the public eye, after defining their next steps after leaving behind their roles in the British royals.
In the coming months, we will know if Uncle Gary finally decides to publish his version of events.
