Gary Goldsmith, uncle to the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, has sparked significant attention with his outspoken remarks on the Duchess, Meghan Markle, during his unprecedented appearance on Celebrity Big Brother, aired on ITV1.

As a 53-year-old entrepreneur, Goldsmith's decision to join the reality TV show has already turned heads, but it was his candid comments about Prince Harry and Meghan that truly set the stage for controversy. In a notable episode that aired Tuesday evening, Goldsmith didn't hold back in expressing his views on the couple, particularly targeting their actions as depicted in Prince Harry's memoir, "Spare." He criticized Harry for his perceived betrayal of the royal family, suggesting that one cannot "throw your family under the bus" and still "expect to be invited round for Christmas." Further intensifying his critique, Goldsmith argued that Meghan's integration into the royal family introduced an unwelcome element of drama, likening her presence to a "stick in the spokes" that significantly amplified familial tensions.

Royal Drama Unfolds

This televised drama unfolds amidst uncertainty regarding the Princess of Wales, Kate's, upcoming official royal engagements. Notably, the British Army's website recently retracted a statement claiming that the princess would preside over the Trooping the Colour ceremony in June.

Currently recuperating from abdominal surgery, Kate is anticipated to resume her public duties following the Easter holidays. As the Royal Family faces public relations hurdles and internal tensions, global attention intensifies.

Gary Goldsmith's outspoken comments on Celebrity Big Brother introduce a fresh perspective to the conversation about the Royals, underscoring the intricate dynamics of their familial bonds against the backdrop of their prominent public positions.

His critique, especially regarding Meghan Markle's impact on the family, not only fuels public intrigue but also sheds light on the delicate balance the Royals must maintain between personal relationships and their duties to the public eye.
