Kate Middleton’s uncle says he ‘for a moment doesn’t believe she made Meghan cry’ after bombshell claims in Sussexes’ Oprah interview
- Gary Goldsmith has said Kate Middleton ‘doesn’t have a mean bone in her body’
- The 55-year-old ‘doesn’t believe a word Meghan said’ in the Oprah interview
- Comes for the ITV documentary marking William and Kate’s 10th anniversary birthday
It was one of the most inflammatory claims in Meghan’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey – that she had been reduced to tears by the Duchess of Cambridge during an emotional row leading up to her marriage.
Now Kate’s uncle has stepped in to defend his niece, saying bluntly, “I don’t believe for a moment Kate made Meghan cry.”
For the first time since the allegations aired, Gary Goldsmith told The Mail on Sunday, “I’ve known Kate since she was born and she doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. It’s just not in her nature.
Mr Goldsmith, 55, supported his niece, saying she ‘doesn’t have a mean bone in her body’
‘She is even more beautiful on the inside than on the outside. If anyone had had a hissing fit, it must have been Meghan. Kate would have tried to make peace. I would fight for Kate’s honor until the day I die. She is the most spectacular person I have ever met. ‘
Meghan’s comments came after Oprah asked her about reports that she had made Kate cry over bridesmaids’ dresses for her 2018 wedding to Prince Harry. The Duchess of Sussex replied, “The opposite has happened. I’m not saying that to belittle anyone, ”adding that Kate later apologized.
But Mr. Goldsmith, the 55-year-old brother of Kate’s mother Carole, says he “doesn’t believe a word” of Meghan.
“When Meghan first joined the Royal Family, I was made up for Harry,” he said. Like the rest of the country, it seemed she was the real deal and it was a marriage in heaven. But what happened is heartbreaking.
‘I don’t blame Meghan – she’s a Hollywood star. You can’t blame a tiger for biting a sheep’s head. But I don’t believe a word that comes out of her mouth. She is an actress and knows how to manipulate her audience.
‘I don’t believe for a second that she had to google the words of the national anthem. Harry has been singing it since he was five. ‘
Meghan’s comments came after Oprah asked her about reports that she had made Kate cry over bridesmaids’ dresses for her 2018 wedding to Prince Harry.
He also questioned Harry’s reaction to the effects of joining the royal family on Meghan’s state of mind.
“The last time I checked, he was the face of a mental health charity,” Mr. Goldsmith said. “Where was he with all this? As her husband, he certainly should have been able to give her the help and support she needed.
“He’s a senior army officer who has been in a war zone. He should be able to stand up for himself and his wife. He shouldn’t claim to be family-oriented if he’s hurt everyone who loves him. You don’t ask for anonymity and step back from public life and then throw your family and your grandmother under a bus on TV. Why would you do that? The royal family isn’t racist, it’s not sexist, it’s not ageist. They are a moral compass. ‘
Mr Goldsmith said both William and Kate are ‘wrecking’ their jobs as working royals
Mr. Goldsmith, a recruitment consultant, contrasted the Sussex’s attitude with that of his niece and her husband. Ahead of his first TV interview next month, he said in an ITV documentary on the occasion of William and Kate’s 10th anniversary: ’Both William and Kate understand that they are paid by taxpayers to do a job. They smash it.
‘It is a tough performance. It’s relentless. But it is also a privileged position. If you have that privilege, don’t throw it back in people’s faces. In all the years that Kate has been in the public eye, she has never set foot wrong. She was born for the role. She has risen above criticism and just got on with the job. ‘
Mr. Goldsmith himself has had a rollercoaster ride with the media. He was caught on a drug stabbing by the now-defunct News Of The World. He denied the use of drugs and reporter Mazher Mahmood was later convicted of disturbing the course of justice.
The Day Will And Kate Got Married is on ITV on April 7 at 9pm.
