Duchess Kate’s uncle Gary Goldsmith ‘doesn’t believe’ the Duchess of Sussex

Gary Goldsmith turns up to court for sentencing

I’m a broken record about this, but gosh, the Middletons and Goldsmiths are incredibly shady. Take your pick of bizarre, unanswered questions. Where did the Middletons’ money really come from? What happened with the story about the marijuana farm adjacent to the Middletons’ property in Bucklebury? What happened to “dodgy” Uncle Gary Goldsmith and all of the drugs he had sitting around the La Maison de Bang Bang, the same party house where William and Kate used to stay constantly during their courtship? Why does a man who publicly assaulted his wife feel the need to chime in on his niece’s in-laws? Why do the Middletons use Uncle Gary to bash the Sussexes publicly, on the record? Why does it feel like there’s some major panic inside the Middletons’ PR operation these days? Please allow the Duchess of Cambridge’s dodgy uncle to go on the record to the Mail on Sunday about how his niece’s sister-in-law is a liar. You cannot make this sh-t up.

It was one of the most incendiary 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 in the run-up to her wedding. Now, Kate’s uncle has stepped in to defend his niece, saying bluntly: ‘I don’t believe for a moment that Kate made Meghan cry.’

Speaking 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 simply not in her nature. She’s even lovelier on the inside than on the outside. If anyone had a hissy fit, it must have been Meghan. Kate would have been trying to make the peace. I would fight for Kate’s honour until the day I die. She is the most spectacular person I’ve ever met.’

Meghan’s comments came after Oprah asked her about reports that she had made Kate cry in a row over bridesmaids’ dresses for her 2018 wedding to Prince Harry. The Duchess of Sussex responded: ‘The reverse happened. I don’t say that to be disparaging to anyone’, adding that Kate later apologised. But Mr Goldsmith, the 55-year-old brother of Kate’s mother Carole, says he ‘doesn’t believe a word’ that Meghan said.

‘When Meghan first entered 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 made in heaven. But what has happened is heartbreaking. I don’t blame Meghan – she’s a Hollywood starlet. You can’t blame a tiger for biting the head off a sheep. But I don’t believe a word that comes out of her mouth. She’s an actress and knows how to manipulate her audience. I don’t believe for a second she had to Google the words to the National Anthem. Harry has been singing it since the age of five.’

He also questioned Harry’s response to the effects that joining the Royal Family had on Meghan’s state of mind. ‘The last time I checked, he was the face of a mental wellbeing charity,’ Mr Goldsmith said: ‘Where was he in all this? Surely as her husband, he 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-centric when he has hurt everyone who loves him. You don’t ask for anonymity and take a step back from public life to then throw your family and your grandmother under a bus on TV. Why would you do that? The Royal Family is not racist, it’s not sexist, it’s not ageist. They are a moral compass.’

Mr Goldsmith, a recruitment consultant, contrasted the Sussexes’ attitude to that of his niece and her husband. Speaking ahead of his first TV interview next month, in an ITV documentary to mark William and Kate’s tenth anniversary, he said: ‘Both William and Kate understand they are being paid by the taxpayer to do a job. They smash it. It’s a tough gig. It’s relentless. But it’s also a position of privilege. If you have that privilege, don’t throw it back in people’s faces. In all the years Kate has been in the public eye, she has never put a foot wrong. She was born for the role. She has risen above the criticism and just got on with the job.’

[From The Daily Mail]

Considering Gary hits all of the well-established Middleton talking points, I think we can safely say that Middleton HQ sent Gary out to speak to the Mail on Sunday. It might have even been authorized by Kensington Palace for all we know – they clearly want the narrative focused on how KATE was “attacked” by Meghan when Meghan was like, actually Kate made me cry and she apologized and it was fine. Better to focus on that than “who spoke to Harry about what their children’s skin color would be.” Better to focus on Kate’s incessant Karen Drama rather that the institutional white supremacy and profound dysfunction at the heart of the royal establishment. But really, this is just a completely sh-tty look from Kate and her mother. Also, note to Carole, Gary and the rest of the Karen Klan: Meghan said she has receipts. Did y’all forget about that? Or are you trying to make Meghan drop the receipts on your asses?

    “She is the most spectacular person I’ve ever met.”

    When was the last time he was outside and met people if she is the most spectacular?

    Not a mean bone in her body? GTFOH we all saw her face at that snub ceremony before H&M peaced out. House Middleton need to plug their leaks before people start paying attention to the wider family and asking questions about drugs and trafficking of women.

    • Belli says:

      If I were Carole, Pippa or Whatshisname, I’d be having some words with him about favouritism!

      It sounds like the Middletons trying to counter all of the people coming out in support of Meghan and talking about how wonderful they think she is, but if Sketchy Uncle Gary is the best they can do…

    • Cecilia says:

      Its funny because in the wake of sussexit and the oprah interview plenty of people came to social media to say how arrogant kate (and also the middletons) actually are. I know everybody can sent out a tweet and it doesn’t necessarily prove anything bit isn’t it funny how these were all normal regular people who either met them at charity events or in kensington gardens?

    • Ang says:

      +1,000,000!!!
      I also thought, geez has he ever met… people? The world saw Kate ‘mean girl’ Meghan at that event. Bunch of assess.

    • Ginger says:

      The mask is coming off. Kate is being outed as the nasty mean girl she is. There are plenty of stories of her being snotty at University and being a social climber. She dumped her friends the second she started dating William. She has no friends now. I don’t think she even talks to her sister. She isn’t nice and I am glad she is being called out.

      • Cecilia says:

        She also apparently doesn’t get along with the york sisters. If reports are correct they’ve been beefing for years. Not to mention that KP didn’t congratulate eugenie on the birth of her baby boy (if they did i missed it). If kate is the girl who repeatedly doesn’t get along with other women the problem is her

    • PEARL GREY says:

      If a man who sold drugs, beat his wife unconscious, groped a woman against her will and pestered a 17-year-old girl for a threesome thinks you’re “spectacular”, you should be worried.

      It’s clear Carole enjoys Gary for his attack dog mouthpiece qualities as well as his tainted millions. What a family.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        and honestly, even if he didn’t have all of those issues hanging over his opinion (which are some major issues, to be sure)…

        …who cares what the Duchess’ sister-in-law’s uncle has to say about her? talk about a “reach”.

      • ➕💯👆🏼, PEARL GREY. It’s amazing that in order to embiggen Kate every word out of the mouth of her family has to include something negative about Meghan or Harry. I’d say that’s “putting a foot wrong” right there.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ PEARL GREY, can we also point out how we don’t know how creepy and unscrupulous Creepy Uncle Gary made his money or the fact that he is mysteriously absent from much of the scandals and is only brought out for the purpose of being Caroles money source OR a speaker of the “family” so that. It doesn’t looked biased? But he isn’t of any aristo-position, but he’s talking? STFU Creepy Uncle Gary as you certainly have many skeletons in YOUR closet!!

      • Madelaine says:

        @Pearl Grey: Absolutely. If Meghan is “spectacular”, then GG is SCANDALOUS. Isn’t he the one who organized pretty distasteful swingers parties on his special yacht the same summer Cathkaren and Willie paid him a visit? I love it when the devil embodied turns sanctimonious.

    • luna says:

      I know it’s an unpopular opinion, and we don’t really know to what extent Kate was a part of the feud (Meghan seemed to eager to clear Kate’s name), but I don’t think Kate was being a bitch on that occasion. When I’m on bad terms with someone, as an introvert, I usually don’t know how to behave, and I feel safe when I do the minimum. Although I can see the good intent behind Meghan’s greeting of them, I could never give a big smile to someone I’m not on good terms with – I would feel like I’m being mean. It could be also a cultural thing, (I’m not American) but save me your fake courtesies.

      • Nlopez says:

        Did you forget the part where she let the world think Meghan made her cry when it was actually the opposite? Kate made Meghan cry and never corrected that lie. When a person shows you who they are believe it!

      • ABritGuest says:

        Part of Kate’s JOB is diplomacy. The Queen has hosted all types who we are told she didn’t care for including dictators which has been held up as her exemplifying duty. That is expected of Kate too. We didn’t see pictures of her with Trump but I’m sure she managed to be professional at that state dinner despite him being rude about her topless pictures previously.

        The bare minimum is Kate being able to acknowledge a greeting in public. She was rude AND unprofessional to departing colleagues let alone in-laws.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        the entire monarchy is about “fake courtesies”.

      • My Two Cents says:

        I have to also say, introvert or not, Kate is always putting on her fake smile, she chose the wrong occasion NOT to do it. The world was watching and we saw her real face. It was absolutely her job to do so. But seeing as Kate never does anything on her own, I’m convinced Will or Charles allowed this, or even encouraged it to happen. As we’ve seen, they don’t read the room properly and instead of getting sympathy for them, it backfired yet again.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Luna, I appreciate your position but as an introvert, wouldn’t you go above and beyond to any potential bride from causing friction to the point that you know since you have been put in the same position, you would take great measure not to upset her? And if you were upset, wouldn’t you hold it in and if it still upset you, bring it up later at a time when you are both alone?
        I am not an introvert but I am certainly one who will swallow my anger/angst/personal problems to myself as my future SIL or ANY person is preparing for a huge wedding in front of the world!!!

      • Myra says:

        Then she is not fit to be a queen consort. Courtesy is required in diplomacy and if she cannot even do that for a SIL, then imagine how she would react to other people she decides she doesn’t like. If however she has found it in herself to smile at despots or problematic heads of states/ government but cannot do so for her SIL, then she is even more vile than we imagined her to be. She is allowing a petty rivalry (of her own making) to cloud her judgement and behaviour. If that’s the case, I imagine that she behaved abominably when she made Meghan cry.

      • Carmen-JamRock says:

        LOL. What are we talking about here………a little 12 year old preteen? GTFOH

      • Tessa says:

        Introverts would not change a dress to make it look see through and parade down a runway to ‘impress’ heir to heir to throne. Nor would they have fashion mishaps on tours representing the Queen.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        luna, if you put it in context and believe that W’s affair with Rose during K’s pregnancy with Louis became known to her about that time, I think that K was angry and took it out on Meghan. It’s that simple. The fact that she apologized tends to make me think it really wasn’t anything to do with wedding arrangements including Charlotte’s dress or stockings. It’s easy to give her a pass, but not when she used the lie to her advantage. And, oh look, she’s still doing it.

        I think Uncle Gary is a very wrong strategy. Do the Middleton’s really believe that a wife beater is a good source to give an opinion regarding any woman? Seriously?

      • Lilly (with the double-L) says:

        I think it’s nice and courteous to think of potential reasons Kate Middleton was/is rude. I learned my best introvert tips living in England. The ability to be courteous and make inconsequential polite talk I found to be an art form and one of the best shields I picked up living in London for being at mandatory gatherings, while still being polite. I would hope FFQ has had lots of training and practice. As a fully grown up woman, I have also learned to be polite, while also not being fake, from many of my ancestors and role models. My grandma’s were great at that. While in the longhouse for some gatherings you must shake someone’s hand if offered, but to have it also be known that doesn’t forgive certain things is a real skill. It’s amazing to see.

      • WithTheAmerican says:

        I honestly don’t understand when people do this. Are you suggesting that Kate is like you? It’s just irrelevant what you and I would do since we are not royal subjects putting on a show.

        Also, as an American, actually yes, it is a thing to plaster a smile on at work no matter how we feel.

      • Nic919 says:

        There is a difference between being shy and introverted, of which there is no real evidence that Kate is anyway, and being rude. She purposefully ignored Meghan and Harry and started talking to Sophie animatedly. A few seconds of saying hello would have avoided this.

      • Emily_C says:

        I’m also an introvert, and I’m perfectly capable of smiling at family members I don’t get along with in private, let alone in public. It’s got nothing to do with being an introvert or not. Also, as an introvert, I’d hide under the bed for the rest of my life if I flashed the entire world. I would definitely not proceed to do it on numerous other occasions. I also wouldn’t have shaped my life around pursuing a prince in the first place, knowing all cameras would be on me.

        I doubt Kate’s an introvert. She is, however, a selfish, nasty person.

      • Lorelei says:

        @Luna: Kate’s behavior at the Commonwealth service was totally unacceptable, the end. She only reinforced what many of us already thought— that she’s totally unqualified to be a Queen Consort.
        If she can’t be civil to her SIL for an hour, cannot manage ONE smile, she has no business being in the position she’s in.

      • Isabella says:

        Kate and her toothy smiles. Who could be more fake? She even grins at her husband’s mistress.

        And save us the anti-Americanism,

    • notasugarhere says:

      Are these lies about Kate from her uncle are better than when he was telling the world about her sexual prowess during the dating years?

      • Lorelei says:

        @Nota EXCUSE ME? Her uncle discussed her “sexual prowess?!” Idk how I missed that but do you have a link?

        I’m nauseous at the thought of any of my uncles ever saying (or even thinking about) any such thing — I can’t even imagine any scenario, ever, where this would happen. What the hell is wrong with this man?

    • Lorelei says:

      It’s just like…if he’s saying over-the-top things like “She’s the most spectacular person I’ve ever met!” I’m not going to take ANYTHING he says in the entire interview seriously, you know? It’s so blatantly ridiculous.

      ETA @LowCountry Lady that’s a good point that I missed, but you’re right — anyone praising Kate *always* has to include a negative remark about Meghan. There’s absolutely nothing to say about Kate on her own.

  2. Jay says:

    I guess Thomas Markle has a rival now? I’m sure this is what the Middletons are saying in private, but I think it’s a stretch that they’d authorize Uncle Gary to speak.

    Also, there’s something creepy about “It’s just simply not in her nature. She’s even lovelier on the inside than on the outside.”

    • Myra says:

      Thomas Markle was one of the least trashy connections to the royals in their history of trashy connections. I want to say that he is maybe the first father to attack his own daughter in order to side with the BRF, but that’s probably untrue. When people say Kate is classy and comes from a classy family, they only mean Kate is white and comes from a purely white family. There’s nothing classy about her side of the family.

      • MYRA….Markle is not the first, just the most recent…..take a look at Anne Boleyn’s father. The closer people get to The Crown the uglier they get as 99.99% of them are just desperate to keep rubbing up against it. That’s why none of this current crop get Harry’s decision and never will.

        And, Carole releasing the problematic Uncle Gary to trash Meghan smells of desperation to me.

      • Original Jenns says:

        Lowcountrylady – actually, it wasn’t Anne’s father but her uncle that was the “politics and power over blood” type. I agree, though, some people get a taste and will throw anyone under the bus to kiss up.

    • Tessa says:

      I wonder if Gary has “bots” that go on social media to say Kate is lovely on the inside and outside. Very creepy.

    • Mac says:

      I’m surprised Uncle Gary is willing to play the game after being massively snubbed at Pippa’s wedding. I guess he really wants that invite to James’ reception.

      • Shoo fly says:

        MAC I thought the same thing. Maybe if Gary keeps caping for Kate the Middletons will allow him to attend their evening receptions instead of Roger Federer.

      • Lorelei says:

        Really? He wasn’t invited to Pippa’s reception?! Wow, this family…yes, he’s gross, but he’s Carole’s *brother* ffs.
        We can certainly see where Kate learned her manners!

      • anotherlily says:

        He didn’t attend the evening reception, just the post-wedding buffet in the afternoon, but he was escorting his 15 year old daughter who was probably thought to be too young for the evening party. Uncle Gary’s current (4th) wife is not this girl’s mother,and was not invited to the wedding, but they seem to be close and all three were photographed going out for dinner that evening.

  3. Jane says:

    ‘I don’t believe for a second she had to Google the words to the National Anthem. Harry has been singing it since the age of five’.

    I’m a 38 year old British woman who must have heard the National Anthem thousands of times during my life and I don’t know all the words to it, so I really don’t see why Meghan would. And as for not believing a word that comes out of Meghan’s mouth, it seems Uncle Gary has been getting his talking points from Piers Morgan.

    • ABritGuest says:

      Im a Brit& rarely have occasion to sing the National anthem unlike say in the US. So I definitely don’t know the middle section by heart. So why is it strange that American Meghan would have to Google it?

      Anyway someone posted receipt of British Kate attempting to talk during the anthem so seems not only the foreign duchess who wasn’t always up to speed on the national anthem

      • Andrena Emin says:

        I don’t even know the words after God save the Queen and I’m a Brit. I do know the US National anthem lol.

    • Sofia says:

      I am a Brit too and I don’t know the anthem fully.

    • missskitttin says:

      They never play the British anthem in the US. I’ve never heard it. Why would Meghan know it? That old man lives in the bubble that is exceptionalism.

      • L84Tea says:

        The only line I have ever known for certain is the final “God save the Queen”. I couldn’t tell you a single other word.

      • Lady D says:

        In elementary school we always had to sing two anthems, Oh Canada and God Save the Queen.

      • Smices says:

        Plus the British anthem is “My Country Tis of Thee” in the US. It was so confusing when people kept insisting it was the UK anthem.

      • ABritGuest says:

        I meant that in the US seems people sing the US National anthem more regularly eg at sports games whereas I can barely think of last time I heard England’s National anthem in person

    • Myra says:

      I do not know all the words to the national anthem of my own country, let alone the words to the anthem of the country I am currently living in right now. Words to national anthems are about the last thing people google when they move overseas, if they actually do it.

    • Andrew’s Nemesis says:

      I’m British: I know the first verse. That’s it. And if I had a way to do so that didn’t involve applying scouring pads to my hippocampus, neo-cortex and amygdala, I’d remove it from memory.

    • whateveryousay says:

      I am American and had zero idea you guys had a national anthem. But also, why would she know the words to another country’s anthem? Like what?

    • notasugarhere says:

      Kate doesn’t know the words to the national anthem, and has been caught several times laughing and talking through it at engagements.

    • My Two Cents says:

      I’m so confused about all these people who think Meghan is a liar because she doesn’t know the words to the anthem? Why would an American know the British national anthem? it’s so laughable it’s incredible.

      And the Middletons should be ashamed to unleash Uncle Gary, like who is he? why would anyone care about his opinions about Meghan? There are photos on Twitter of Gary caught pissing in the street. Not sure of their authenticity, but how classy and dignified is that Uncle Gary? and could you imagine the uproar if Janina or another of Meghan’s friends came forward and was putting down Pippa or James?? How is this allowed to happen?

    • Stephanie says:

      This line about the national anthem also stood out to me – especially Harry knows it so therefore Meghan should…by osmosis? Like they’re different people who don’t share a brain…

    • Ann says:

      That made no sense. Harry has been singing it since he was a little child, so Meghan should know it? Through osmosis? I’m American. I don’t know the words to the British national anthem. I know a few of the lines but not the whole thing. Why on earth would I, or should I?

      As for the “not a mean bone in her body” thing? First of all…..sure, Uncle Gary. But even if she didn’t, you don’t have to be mean to make someone cry. Kate could very well have inadvertently said something that made a stressed-out bride-to-be cry. Meghan never said Kate was mean. She went out of her way to say that she’s a good person who apologized. She hasn’t been dwelling on the incident, she was just upset that everyone thought she made Kate cry and no one was doing anything to dispel the rumor.

    • Don't Take It Seriously says:

      I was going to say this. I know loads of British people who don’t know the words. I’ve been living in the UK a few years now and I don’t know the words. I don’t know all the words to my own country’s national anthem. Yes, Harry has known them since he was 5, that doesn’t mean Meghan would

    • Emily_C says:

      Why on Earth would an American know the words to the British national anthem? I hear “God Save the Queen” and “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” starts going through my head. A lot of these people seem to refuse to understand that we haven’t been their colony for well over 200 years.

      I know more of “Oh Canada” than I do of “God Save the Queen,” which makes sense since Canada is right there. Also, hockey.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        Emily_C, I think she should have just sung My County ‘Tis of Thee LOUDLY. With all of the stuff going on behind the scenes including the concerns about future children’s skin color, it would have been a passive aggressive FU.

  4. Jessie says:

    So the dodgy uncle is the best spokesperson they can come up with? Seriously? So funny how Kate doesn’t actually have any friends willing to go on the record to defend her shitty personality… almost as if she has none to speak of. The more this pathetic family rallies around their 39 year old ingenue the more painfully obvious it becomes that the Middletons were a driving force in the smear campaign from the get-go.

    • JT says:

      This is what I find most telling about W&K. Not a single decent friend has gone on the record to defend them. Harry has so many military friends and longtime friends coming to defend them. Meghan has many coworkers and longtime friends come forward to their defense. W&K have a bunch of unnamed sources who cannot say anything specific about them. If this wife beater is the best that Kate has than that is a shame. I kept thinking about the Tatler article where their so called friends all just trashed them. They have no real relationships around them.

      • MerryGirl says:

        Yup, you nailed it…”show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are”. Baldy and Karen have no friends so having their sketchy Middleton relatives speak on their behalf tells me exactly who they are.

      • Ginger says:

        And how Harry and Meghan’s friends have never trashed Kate or William to defend them. Will and Kate are nothing but trash.

      • Lorelei says:

        Good point. William is so desperate right now that he’d probably allow the Van Strawberry guy to speak out, or one of the other bros he’s supposedly been friends with for decades. He’s at the point where he really needs it right now.
        Kate has at least one friend— Emilia something who’s always with her on her birthday weekend.

        I mean, I wouldn’t want to go on the record defending these two either, after what we’ve seen the past couple of years.

    • Merricat says:

      Lol — +1

  5. Lauren says:

    Seeing how the Squad is posting receipts about Gary on Twitter, I have to say that this pr stunt too has gloriously died a hilarious death. These people are ridiculous. They need to hire a specialist and stop asking #poorjason or ma carole for pr help.

  6. lanne says:

    The royal family is a moral compass, sez a druggie wife beater about a family harboring a pedophile from the FBI, who bullied the only nonwhite member of the family nearly to suicide and whose husband chose to leave the country in order to save his own family.

    Who at KP thinks this is a good look, especially after the dragging Cain has gotten over the last 2 weeks. The Moronic Middletons strike again. Meghan has had per past sifted over with scientific precision. Could the Middletons stand such scrutiny? The BM may be the tools of the palace but the world media surely isn’t. Some scrutiny of the middletons is long overdue.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Yeah, this is ridiculous. This old creep plead guilty to beating his wife, knocking her to the ground, over an argument about whether or not he was taking cocaine. He’s a violent criminal, and he thinks he’s going to nitpick Meghan over the issue of whether she knew all the words to the English national anthem??? Right here is the toxic white supremacist patriarchy. He can literally beat a woman up and knock her to the ground, and Meghan can’t not know the words to an abject monarchy-worshipping song. “Oh our queen is so perfect.” That’s literally the lyrics in a nutshell.

    • equality says:

      Even if Gary weren’t problematic, the royal family as “moral” with all they get up to wouldn’t sell.

      • lanne says:

        It would be funny if this whole situation explodes the ULTIMATE DREAM of the Middletons–to be given titles when William ascends the throne. I don’t think Uncle Gary stands a chance though. Where does the Middleton money come from? A business of the size of Party Pieces wouldn’t generate the wealth the Middletons claim to have, not in the world of Amazon.com these days. Even pre Amazon it’s unlikely that a small party goods business on a small island would generate huge amounts of wealth. Someone needs to do a deep dive into Middleton inc.

    • Great comment, LANNE. …..I think someone should send the Firm a case of flashlights so they can spend a little time looking for “the royal compass”. I think it’s been lost up one of their arses. (Probably Andrew’s).

  7. Digital Unicorn says:

    Of course he’s going to say nice things about Cain and Top CEO – not going to bit the hand that hides his crimes now is he. William does more to protect the Middletons and by extension Uncle Gary because it not only suits him, they know where Cain’s bodies are buried. We know Uncle Gary funded the Great Prince Hunt and he is waiting for his payday – a title just like his sister.

    Meghan needs to drop the receipts already. To hell with keeping it private. KP sure as hell doesn’t want to keep it private.

    • SaySo says:

      I 👏hope👏she👏does release receipts, I’m sick of their mess.

      Piers Morgan even had the nerve to say “Meghan’s had no worse media treatment than other Royal brides such as Diana, Fergie, Kate, Camilla or even that other Monarchy-rattling American divorcee, Wallis Simpson,” Morgan wrote. “But she’s the first to claim negative press has been motivated by racism, and it’s a very dangerous charge to make with so little to back it up.”
      How many of those women have a black parent? How many of those had racist headlines in the news?
      I sware if I could Thanos snap these MFers away…. 🤦‍♀️

      • equality says:

        She could also claim misogyny? Would he like that better? The “hazing” of married-in women in the press should have been stopped after Diana and Fergie. Do you see the same being done to the men who marry in? Do you see hundreds of articles about Mike Tindall’s every misstep? If Meghan had been the one living with a man and had a child every detail would still be examined minutely. Instead there are conspiracy theorists who want to claim that Meghan had a child and Sam raised it. (As if anyone would turn over a defenseless baby to Sam.)

        Woman-beating domestic violence criminal says what?

        By the way, how did a high-school educated headhunter without family money earn enough within 6 months of starting to head-hunt to purchase a 5-bedroom luxury house in the Berkshires? and walk away less than 15 years later with 17 million pound goodbye gift? Well now…we should all have such, ahem, professional success, amirite?!

        Kate is dumber than a box of her wiglets. She is also a lazy, racist, covetous mean-girl who, along with her equally lazy, covetous, racist and stupid husband, bullied the brother in-law who was nothing but good to her and his wife out of the country because they were “making them look bad” by being diligent, hard-working, interesting, and caring of others. I mean, heaven forbid the Keens saw H&M as an invitation to step up their game and do better. Nope. Like pigs revel in mud, the Keens revel in their laziness, racism, stupidity and lack of care or concern for others.

        In a world of (in no particular order) Stanley Tucci, Michael Jordan, Patrick Stewart, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, LL Cool J, Boris Kodjoe, Samuel L. Jackson and Mark Strong, Billy Cambridge is the sexiest bald man in the world? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
        Let’s see: For Meghan—Oprah, Gayle, Tyler Perry, Beyoncé, Serena, Queen Doria, Michelle Obama, for example; for Katie Keen(f/k/a Waity Katie)—a 4x-wed, wife-beating criminal whose vacation home is referred to as the “bang-bang house”; Ma and Pa Middleton, who allegedly amassed tens of millions allegedly selling cheap and tacky party supplies allegedly made with child labor; a cruel adulterer future king, who taunted his mentally and emotionally distressed bulimic wife about throwing up her food & lived openly with his mistress in the family home (according to Paul Burrell, Charles would bring Camilla in on Monday after Diana & the boys left Highgrove on Sunday); and a cruel, racist, adulterer future-future king with a fondness for Norfolk rose bushes. Well…

  10. ABritGuest says:

    Lol I don’t understand why people are so rattled by Meghan saying that Kate made her cry but she apologised& is a good person. Kate was given an out& it’s so easy to blame post partum or wedding stress. Why this insistence that Kate is flawless?

    If there was any doubt about Meghan’s take of the tears story (the silliest story) this doubling down, which amounts to classic racist gaslighting, should remove it. The relentless need to present the white woman as victim of a black/biracial person is a tale as old as time.

    We’ve seen Kate snub the Sussexes so yeah like anyone she can be rude. Also didn’t Gary once brag about Kate’s body & her prowess in bed? Guess that was maintaining her honour.

    The idea of an alleged sex trafficker/convicted wife beater who was caught on camera doing drugs, defending the firm on its morality when they are shielding Andrew over Guiffre’s allegations is on brand for the Windsors.

    • ArtHistorian says:

      That crying story is such a weird hill to die on – especially since Meghan really didn’t drag Kate and she she’s a good person. So why are the Middleton’s repeatedly keeping this story alive? Is it because they leaked it in the first place?

      • JT says:

        Kate owning Meghan’s out for her would’ve been such great PR. It would’ve been Kate actually being regal for once in her life. She could’ve just had the press gloss over the original story, as they usually do, and say Kate was just doing the right thing or something. Doubling and tripling down is just foolish. How could Meghan attack her by saying she’s a good person, who was tied up as much as she was? Real people and not paid bots are seeing this situation for what it is, a farce. Everyone over there is just too stupid to function.

      • Becks1 says:

        And the reason Meghan brought it up was more to discuss how she was not allowed to correct false stories, even though other royals were.

        Can you IMAGINE if one of Meghan’s relatives or good friends went on the record with the Daily Mail to talk about how good a person she is and how whiny and bratty the other duchess is?

      • Nic919 says:

        I think Kate in her actions following the interview has confirmed she was involved in sending out the fake story in the first place. She could have easily blamed a courtier… but she has said nothing. And uncle Gary getting involved is just disgusting.

    • Lady Keller says:

      Ikr, she literally called Kate a good person. The story actually made Kate look good in my opinion. She made a small misstep, owned it and apologized like a big girl. All Kannot had to do was sit back and stay out of it and she was golden. Now instead she’s outed herself.

      On a Side note I guess Carole comes by the BS quite naturally, seems to run in the family.

  11. Shoo fly says:

    How little Britain in a nutshell to believe the rest of the world knows your national anthem. As an American, I know the first stanza of ours and a bit of O Canada just from hearing it at hockey games. I have no idea past God Save the Queen what the British national anthem is. Why pick one thing she said that most people probably think is true?

    • Lady D says:

      I learned the American national anthem from hockey games. It’s about the only time I hear it.

    • Ann says:

      “God Save The Queen” praises the Queen, calling her “gracious” and “noble” etc., and wishes her safety and long life. It seems to have worked.

      It seems to have programmed a lot of British citizens to embiggen the Royals, kind of like the Press does all the time with Kate and like Gary is doing with Kate in this interview.

    • JanetDR says:

      I visited relatives in the UK (6 times as a child and young adult, so perhaps as much as Hilaria went to Spain?) and recall the anthem being played in movie theaters. I would attempt to sing along, but couldn’t stop myself to reverting to My Country, Tis of Thee by the 3rd or 4th line.

    • Ashley says:

      As a Canadian, I barely know our own anthem because they’ve changed the lyrics 3x in my lifetime to make the song more inclusive. That’s great, but I have no freaking clue what the words are anymore.

    • Emily_C says:

      I’m an American and I know La Marseillaise from French class in high school. Why we should be expected to know the national anthem of a not all that important country, I do not understand. Britannia no longer rules the waves, and England is going to lose even “Britain” soon. Sooner at the rate the royal family is going.

  12. MellyMel says:

    This family is so desperate for attention, ugh!

  13. Izzy says:

    At this rate, Meghan will be able to drop those receipts soon. Hilariously, none of them realize that Meghan is just handing them rope to hang themselves with; she won’t have to frontally attack the family with the receipts, she can just sue the UK rags again for publishing lies and drop the receipts in court. And then get a front page apology.

  14. Lemons says:

    First Prince Albert, now Uncle Gary? Are they mad that they weren’t included on the sexiest bald men list and want some tabloid action?

  15. RoyalBlue says:

    This is the crux of the matter to me. Why are they using this idiot as their mouthpiece? He and Prince Albert can both go suck an egg. Next up from the Grimaldis, ‘shame that Meghan claims to speak french but doesn’t know the Marsellaise’.

    • L84Tea says:

      I believe they are getting really desperate. Kate is being outed left and right for being a mean girl, William is getting dragged for being a complete douche, and the Rota’s lies are being exposed. I think Carole is running around like a chicken with its head cut off at the moment and trying to throw anything against the wall that will stick.

        *I was wondering why my laptop didn’t redline wannabe. I had no idea it was a bonafide Webster’s Dictionary word.

    • equality says:

      Now we need Albert’s position on Uncle Gary talking to the press.

  16. Amy Bee says:

    “I think we can safely say that Middleton HQ sent Gary out to speak to the Mail on Sunday”.

    Of course, and with KP’s permission. The Royals know their “royal sources” can’t bash Harry and Meghan in the press right now so they’re letting the Middletons do it on their behalf. But if this continues, the Sussexes will fight back.

    • L84Tea says:

      Oh yes, this has Carole written all over it.

    • Becks1 says:

      100% it was with Middleton and KP permission. He wouldnt have gone on the record otherwise. (we just would have gotten another story about Kate being the next queen or whatever.) It’s so telling though, right, that he uses some of the key pro-Kate phrases, including “never puts a foot wrong.” These people are so obvious.

      • notasugarhere says:

        I’d say it is with Middleton permission, I’m not sure about KP permission. When Gary speaks it is generally as a pro-Kate mouthpiece, not a pro-William mouthpiece.

      • Becks1 says:

        True, William probably doesnt love this. But I’ll say KP as in Kate – Kate definitely knew about this and was okay with it. but as we’ve discussed here a few times recently, Kate and William are definitely pushing two different narratives here.

      • Tessa says:

        I recall Uncle Gary made fun of William during his dinner with William and Kate at his home which he publicized. I think Carole needs to caution Uncle Gary or this will backfire, I don’t think Will was “amused” by Uncle Gary.

    • Tessa says:

      Those who pushed this man out knew he knocked his wife unconscious. Totally clueless.

  17. AVEA says:

    The devil works hard but Carole works harder
    Even pulled out the questionable brother

  18. Sofia says:

    Not once has Meghan or anybody in her camp trashed Kate or any of her family members. Meghan even said in the Oprah interview that Kate is a good person. Yet the Middletons have allowed Gary to talk not once, but twice about the Sussexes. And even if the MIdds aren’t directing him to speak, they can definitely tell him to shut the f**k up, especially as he’s been pretty silent about the Cambridges these days when in the past, he wasn’t.

  19. Royalwatcher says:

    Not that Meghan is dumb enough to fall for it, but I actually wonder if they are trying to bait Meghan into releasing a copy of the apology letter/card that Kate gave Meghan after making her cry. To somehow try to invalidate her lawsuit or so they could sue Meghan over copyright or something. I can just imagine them sitting around plotting something stupid like this without realizing Meghan is smarter than that.

    KP and the Midds are just sooooooo ham-handed and dumb with these awful (and obviously false) attempts at turning KeenKaren into a saint and Egg into a pinup boy. And so stupid to not just shut up!!! The only reason we’re still talking about how racist, ugly, mean girlish, etc they are is because KP/Midds can’t keep their mouths shut. If they had just let the interview happen and “never complained,” like they claim they do, we probably wouldn’t all be remembering all of Keen’s mean girling and bullying and Egg’s epic glowdown.

    • JT says:

      They probably are trying to bait her. However, if Meghan dropped receipts I think it would be through a lawsuit. She always seems to go through official channels, unlike the royals back door bullsh*t with the press. She likes people to know it was her. Besides, I don’t think she would just go rogue and show her hand over this crackhead. She’ll probably wait until the mail or whoever else f*cks up again to throw down.

      And the Midds are so dumb with their obvious pushback, that I don’t see why Charles hasn’t buried them by now. What is waiting for? They’ve been pulling fast ones on the Sussexes and Charles for years now. Destroy them and Will-di Amin might have to lean on Charles for a change.

      • iconoclast59 says:

        @JT “She likes people to know it was her.”

        That immediately brought up GoT imagery:

        Meghan: “Tell KP. I want them to know it was me.”

  20. Shawna says:

    At least he called Kate a sheep!

  21. Merricat says:

    I cannot believe that Charles is allowing the Middletons to drag the rf further into the muck of their own making. No one gives an eff about what any Middleton thinks about anything.

    • notasugarhere says:

      I don’t think this is coming from BP or Clarence House. Don’t even think it is coming from KP. This one reeks of Middletons acting alone.

    • Charles is too busy supervising the packing of his personal toilet seat and supply of bog paper so he and Camilla can spend a few days in the warmth of the Greek sun on taxpayer dollars.

    • Tessa says:

      Charles lets all this just happen. He does not care about Harry and Meghan just his little jaunt to Greece and he will let William run things.

  22. MsIam says:

    What an Augean-stables load of steaming bullshit. Thank you for doing a Herculean task, Kaiser, in sifting through it every day.
    As for the abusive-dirty money-drug dealing Uncle Gary: trash.

  24. Beach Dreams says:

    When this first dropped, I got the distinct impression that Kate and Carole screwed themselves over. They just made it so much easier for Will to throw Kate under the bus if he feels the need to do so. With other recent PR efforts, they had a (very) thin shield of plausible deniability. But having your criminal uncle/brother doing such a direct attack is a very bold and desperate move. All the Middletons except Michael have been in the spotlight these past two weeks. I wonder what’s happening.

    • Becks1 says:

      Agree that something is happening and WHY. Like, all these articles about how perfect Kate is – they just mean that people, including us, are still talking about the interview, still talking about whether or not Kate made Meghan cry or Meghan made Kate cry, still talking about the fact that Kate did not correct the story for YEARS and STILL has not corrected it – what is going on here? This feels like Kate and Carole didnt think the PR push over the past few weeks was working so they sent out Uncle Gary to directly attack Meghan, when no one has directly attacked Kate.

      I feel like something is going on behind the scenes and we’re going to find out sooner rather than later.

    • February-Pisces says:

      It’s not a good look though cos now a member of the Middleton family has once again gone on record to trash Meghan. He’s doing Kate’s dirty work for her. None of meghans friends who have defended her have ever trashed Kate. Never. Willie and keen have consistently screwed themselves over the last two weeks with their own bad pr moves, so of course it must be meghans fault cos they can never take responsibility for their own actions.

      But I agree that something strange is going down and they are getting desperate.

  25. Lowrider says:

    More confirmation that Kate and her mother are also behind the Meghan bashing.

  26. BearcatLawyer says:

    Never put a foot wrong? Ha. Katie Keen has shown her a$$- literally and figuratively – plenty of times!

    • Tessa says:

      Kate had a lot of the wardrobe malfunction pictures, took a while for her to put hem weights on her skirts.

      • Nic919 says:

        For all the accusations of Meghan being an actress and doing sex scenes, there are actually more photos of Kate’s private areas out there due to her inability to wear weighted skirts or proper underwear. Meghan revealed far less in her acting career.

  27. Sunshine says:

    Let’s Suumarise the characters defending the Royals
    1. Kate’s drug dealing, wife beating uncle
    2. Monaco’s leader who has at least 3 (mixed race) children by 3 baby mamas outside his marriage. One for which the laws were changed to ensure said black child does not become king
    3. Lunatic stalker Piers Morgan
    4. Far right media and personalities across the globe
    5. White Suprematists across the globe

    The Royal Family is defined by who it attracts.

  28. Tessa says:

    Says the man who knocked his wife unconscious on a street. Carole should rein this man in.

  29. equality says:

    The mental health initiatives that Harry was involved with weren’t long-term mental health resources like a hospital for in-patient care. They were crisis-centered or general well-being initiatives associated with Heads Up. Getting somebody in-patient or long term care for being suicidal is not the same. I am so tired of seeing that complaint about Harry not helping. He did what he could by keeping her with him and getting away from the stressors. I imagine she did get counselling after they got out of the UK. And he did stand up for himself and Meghan. Maybe Gary isn’t able to recognize that because his idea of “standing up” is attacking a woman.

    • Plus, admitting a high profile royal for in-patient treatment (which is what Meghan said she needed and wanted) is entirely different then dropping by a mental health center or talking to a private therapist. Because Meghan was a senior working PREGNANT royal, this is not something she would have been allowed to do just Willy Nilly given the way the Firm functions. If Meghan had just self admitted the royal shit and the 🐀Rota would have hit the fan. And, as always, even in extremous, Meghan was trying to play by their rules.

    • MsIam says:

      I believe the reason she was depressed was because she was in that situation with the family, courtiers and the press. A counselor is not for the purpose of helping someone to remain in or endure abuse. The first thing a competent counselor would tell you to do is get out as quickly and safely as you can. This is not like Meghan suffering some unresolved childhood issues, these people were cruel to her and used the press to bully her. I think the depression was coming from whether she would have to choose between her husband or her sanity. Thankfully, Harry said ‘Lets go!”

      • betsyh says:

        “The first thing a competent counselor would tell you to do is get out as quickly and safely as you can.” Very good point MsIam.

      • BnLurkN4eva says:

        I agree that part of what was driving her to suicidal ideation is that she loved Harry, didn’t want to be without him, but couldn’t see how she could remain in the situation they found themselves in. Also, the thoughts/impulse came it seemed after they told her there would be no protection for Archie. She felt trapped because now she knows that even if she leaves, her child would be in danger and she couldn’t afford to protect him forever because that level of security is extremely expensive. she was struggling to work it out where she didn’t destroy Harry, bring her child into a situation where she couldn’t keep him safe, or figure out how to just live the impactful life she had always dream of. Just imagine how impossible it was for a woman like her, how foolish she felt for believing them when they told her she would be protected. Think of the self blame, the constant fear for herself and her unborn child and even Harry. I truly don’t know how she survived her time in that world just from the hourly hateful headlines we were seeing. She may not have been reading them, but she was hearing about them and even when friends try to not tell her, she likely knows her mom and friends well enough to know when they are not saying something awful and sometimes the not knowing is worse.

  30. BrainFog says:

    “I would fight for Kate’s honour until the day I die. She is the most spectacular person I’ve ever met.”

    Hahahahah. Come on, this guy has got to be trolling.

    • Ginger says:

      I know. KP is clearly scrambling. Emily Andrews said on Twitter that Kate DID cry and not Meghan. She works for the daily mail and Gary said this to the daily mail. Kate is terrified her “oh so perfect” narrative is going down in smoke.

      Emily Andrews has written many false stories
      (Her baby shower that didn’t happen yet is famous) so her saying that Kate DID cry is clearly PR from KP. KP is the one that gave her the shower story.

      • MsIam says:

        How would Emily know when she wasn’t there? And I’m assuming the Givenchy staff had to sign NDAs so who else would say this to the press except Kate? The other bridesmaids there were all hidden of Meghan’s friends. This is why they keep insisting that it really happened the way it did was because Kate is the source. And the liar.

    • Nina says:

      This from a man who has no qualms about being physically violent towards his own wife. He has no credibility.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        Ha! Mountain goat. That is a great comment. The ‘never has put a foot wrong’ comment is so lame. Guessing he didn’t see her at the Commonwealth event looking like Cruella DeVille minus the print pattern.

        I get the feeling they all sit around with a book of positive cliche things to say and declare this is a good one. If her Mom is the driving force behind this bullf#ckery someone needs to tell her she’s looking like one of those cheerleader mom’s we see in the news. NOT a good look.

        Uncle Gary-heads up…You’re right, Harry has experience being in a war zone. It’s that experience that gave him the knowledge to stand up for his wife and child and get out of the war zone known as the British Royal Family.

  33. Mina_Esq says:

    They thought THAT was one of the most incendiary claims? Not the racism? This entire interview is beyond toxic. The worst is when he basically implies that Meghan doesn’t need professional help when she is suicidal because her husband is a mental health advocate and has been in a war zone. Like what the actual f*ck? And he would defend Kate’s honor? Did anyone attack her honor? Meghan just said Kate had a bad day, made her cry and then apologized after she realized what a d*ck she had been. If anything, I came away thinking more highly of Kate for being an adult about it. Who is advising these clowns? Why is anyone believing this garbage? I guess UK have their own version of MAGAs.

  34. Chichi says:

    Mean girls tend to be awful to other girls, and in this particular situation I have seen all of Meghan’s girl friends and former colleagues putting their neck out there in her defense without needing to do so (if anything, it feels as though there is only downside to defending Meghan).

    Haven’t seen anything on the other side, only people who literally get paid to do so (including her fam), or who stand to gain access to the RF.

    Am I the only one who thinks this situation speaks for itself? I just think that a married woman with no job, 3 children, all the help in the world, pushing 40 and with so much access should have at least 1 high profile female friend/ ally (who isn’t related to her), willing to share something positive.

      Yeah oh yeah, try as they might the daily fail and royal rota numbers cannot compete with the global reach of Oprah and US television. Millions more all over the globe saw the interview and heard Meghan state the truth about mean girl Kate so yeah they are panicking. It’s pure desperation if they have to resort to wife beating, street pissing pimp Uncle Gary.

      • L4frimaire says:

        The Royals only need to keep the British public and they know it. As long as they have them, which they do and always will, they don’t care about the rest. They just want the attention, which is what they worry about, not their crappy behavior and racism.

      • MerryGirl says:

        But what about their reputation abroad, don’t they care about that? Don’t they have to do foreign tours? Having the British public support them is one thing but they are trying to hold on to the Commonwealth which is comprised of mainly black and brown people and the majority white commonwealth nations like Australia and Scotland in their own backyard are agitating for a Republic so I think Will & Kate’s public standing matters if they are the future of the monarchy and they’re both taking a beating right now.

      • Emily_C says:

        The Royals have some of the English public. How much of the Scottish public do they have? Welsh? Northern Ireland’s another issue, and how are things there? This behavior is not helping keep together a Britain that was already cracking at the seams. I can’t wait till the next vote for Scottish independence.

  39. Bren says:

    I believe they want Meghan to drop the receipts so they can deal with the fallout and then they can reset the narrative. Holding the receipts over Kate’s head is what has them scrambling and their over-the-top reaction continues to prove Meghan’s point.

  40. euroguesthello says:

    Back when the Cambridges were newly engaged a British journalist tried doing some digging on the supposed Middleton wealth. He didn’t get very far – just a few articles – and that was it. It’s like journalists were told to stop digging because there has never been a solid, meticulously researched article discussing the Middleton family wealth. I find this highly suspicious since this is the family of the Future Queen. Usually when well off families marry into high profile very famous families there are always numerous articles about their fortunes. No stone is left unturned. The Middletons were supposedly millionaires yet they were never known in business circles or philanthropy circles. This Gary uncle had a tech company I think?? He sold it and made his fortune but that’s it. No one ever discusses how Kate’s parents made their millions. A tiny party company selling cheap tat didn’t give them the lifestyle. There are huge companies in England which sell cheap products. These are the companies that turn over multi million pound profits year after year. The uncle has been known to dabble in ‘illegal’ activities and there have been money laundering claims. Whatever it is….. the backstory of the Middleton fortune has always been sketchy. And apparently Party Pieces is a dormant company? Odd. Kate’s fathers family did put money away for their education but it wasn’t enough for the lifestyle they had. I guess when you take into account this dodgy uncles fortune their life does make sense.

      The whole thing is crazy-there is no way they could spend what they do-big house, London apartment, shared ownership of a race horse (!) based on Party Pieces.

  41. Cee says:

    Every time someone compares the Middletons to the Boleyns it is an insult to the latter. The Middletons wish they could have just a bit of what the Boleyns had/were

  42. L4frimaire says:

    I rewatched that clip with Meghan talking about the crying and she was actually very easy on Kate and tried to steer it to how the press pit then against each other, but no one sees that because you can never criticize Kate,ever, even when she is blatantly wrong or ill- mannered. Once William takes over, the Middletons are going to be all up in royal life and the British public’s faces. They are so thirsty and attention whores. Enjoy it, they’re all yours.

  43. MarcelMarcel says:

    I’m so bored by the lack of accountability amongst this privileged white people.
    Racist spectators like Morgan and Gary are wildly wealthy. it. I wish the BRF & it’s posse would stop profiting from racist language about Meghan.
    Anyhow, I’m glad she’s alive and well with her family in a different country. Of course someone like Gary has no idea about optics or compassion. Meghan publicly discussed her miscarriage and struggles with suicidal thoughts. She is currently expecting a baby. It’s so gross watching this institution bully Meghan. I can’t imagine how difficult and draining it would be behind the scenes.

  44. Jaded says:

    Why on earth would they let dodgy Uncle Gary spew nonsense like this? Everyone, including the Fail, have all the receipts on him and haven’t held back on the wife-beating, drug parties and aggressive pursuit of teenage girls. He’s as tainted as they come and unleashing him just makes the Midds and Cambridges look worse and worse. In fact, keep it up Carole, give him enough rope to hang himself and his dumbass meangirl niece.

    • Bren says:

      Because they are scrambling and desperate to change the narrative by any means necessary. Also, a white man no matter his track record will always get away with publicly trashing a biracial woman of black American descent. Reference Piers Morgan.

  45. Lizzythe2 says:

    I’m sure that Kate as a person is very nice. But even the nicest people can have a day where they can lose it. Weddings are stressful and bridesmaids can never agree. Bring in parents and there is bound to be drama. I doubt either if these ladies is mean but I’m sure both of them have had days that don’t reflect them as people. I’m sure Meghan acted in such a way that some people are saying she did and that it led to them quiting. But those people were probably being horrible and Meghan had to defend herself. But they won’t recognize the hand they had in her reactions to them.

    It’s like at work some people don’t like me because after them being horrible to me I started to fight back. I’m sure they say I am difficult. I’m only difficult when I had to deal with their harassment. The rest of my co-workers have not complained about me because they know how to treat others even when things get stressful at work.

    I doubt this bridesmaids incident will change how Kate is viewed by the British people. If her family felt the need to defend Kate, this will only keep this story in the public longer. Of all the things discussed in the interview this was stupid in my opinion. Who hasn’t had wedding drama.

    • Beach Dreams says:

      🙄 Kate has demonstrated numerous times over the years that she’s the exact opposite of nice. This constant need to excuse her behavior is pathetic. Also, nice try with you subtly trying to push Meghan as the mean girl. You’re so sure that Kate’s super nice and you’re so sure that Meghan acted poorly with staff. GTFO.

    • MerryGirl says:

      Here we go with the both siding again and blaming Meghan for alleged bullying. Meghan has receipts for Kate’s actions but forgave her. What was unforgiveable was Kate reversing the story and allowing a lie to be perpetuated about Meghan. I’m sorry but Kate is not a nice person, she is a mean girl and her rude behaviour at the Commonwealth service towards Meghan and Harry told me all I need to know about her.

    • Ginger says:

      Kate is not a nice person. Her actions since her university days speak of that. She doesn’t have friends and has been known to not get along with women. Kate’s perfect persona is a lie and people are now finally seeing that.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Lizzythe2, I said this above, but it doesn’t hurt to repeat it. I believe that K found out about W’s affair with Rose while she was pregnant with Louis. I think she was mad at W, but took it out on Meghan. I don’t think it had anything to do with something wedding related. She apologized and that should have been the end of it. Except she then benefitted from the lie and continues to do so. There is not ANY WAY to both sides this. Nice try though.

    • Tessa says:

      But Kate still did not deny it and sat back in the stans overpraise and letting Meghan take the heat. No matter what was going on with William she should have denied the story.

      • ArtHistorian says:

        I think the reason she never denied the story is because it was her mother who planted it.

    • Nic919 says:

      Kate acted like a massive bitch in video at the commonwealth service well before the other story was confirmed to be Kate’s fault. She’s been a bitch since day one, keeping potential competition away, fighting with the York sisters, etc. Etc.

      Meghan has a list of female friends coming out to support her. Kate has no one other than her dodgy uncle. Tells you a lot about who has been the mean girl her entire life.

  46. February-Pisces says:

    He’s a dirty drug dealing, wife beating, pimping, pisses on the street, sex pest pervert. That’s all.

  47. Tessa says:

    Kate stans are now on social media calling her “iconic.’ LOL.

    • Haylie says:

      I don’t think they understand what iconic means.

    • Emily_C says:

      Iconic of what? Her only personality seems to be that of a mean girl exhibitionist. She’s not even top tier at either of those. She’s incurious and bland.

    • MA says:

      She’s not even the most iconic Kate or British Kate. Like William on a list of sexy men, she belongs nowhere near a list of iconic women.

  48. Phoenix says:

    But this was not about the wedding drama. Surpriseeeee!
    Anyway, I’ve always found the Middletons fortune very sketchy and I read about uncle Gary’s shady involvement here on celebitchy! So thanks :)

  49. Coco says:

    I went to google and searched “‘Gary Goldsmith’ bald sexy.” It came up with negative 4,000 results.

  50. bamaborn says:

    Just get the feeling this is something between KP and the Middletons with Duchess Meghan thrown in as a sideliner. Something is making Carole act more desperate than normal.

  51. Lilly (with the double-L) says:

    My question is: is this a step-up or down for Uncle Gary to talk through the Daily Fail rather than a LinkedIn post? I guess I’ll say step-down.

  52. MangoAngelesque says:

    Aw, bless, he even hit the “never put a foot wrong” talking point they gave him. He did big! Carole will be quite pleased with herself…I mean him.

  53. Ann says:

    The Middletons are slimy. They remind of some family out of a Trollope novel.

  54. Well Wisher says:

    While I admit that it is none of my business, one can help but wonder what is going on in that marriage.
    Following the Oprah interview, the future monarch was out defending the RF in terms of race, he got a pat on the back from the daily telegraph and to show off his black friend, boost by miniscule poll from daily fail, lots of briefings, magazine cover in Sun Times and sexiest bald man award.
    Although the editorial in the times called “hereditary peerages a disgrace, an absurd anachronistism” and says ” abolish the monarchy” .
    She is all over the place from Karen to victim and briefings.
    Carol behaved like a “hit dog” hollering.
    Now sober Uncle Gary with his second attack on Harry and sharing his unsolicited opinions regarding Meghan.
    Whats new? Carol Middletown’s ambitions and insecurities, all neutral, but otherwise with her reactions to them.

  55. MA says:

    That family really reveal themselves. Trashy, uncouth vulgarians so desperately grasping at class and reverence that will always be out of reach….as has been said, “two clicks up from trailer trash”. And really telling that no one in the Middleton family has shut the criminal, wife beating uncle down. Meghan has more class, dignity, and integrity in her pinky than the whole lot of them combined.

  56. Didi says:

    These people are lucky that all the tabloids are right-wing.

  57. Linney says:

    Whatever happened to “stiff upper lip” and “never complain, never explain”? I don’t think these people realize how absurd these interviews and articles are. If you are going to try and defend someone, try to stay in the realm of reality. Otherwise, you make that person look even worse. “The most spectacular?” “Understand the job is relentless?” “Never put a foot wrong?”
    Is this guy for real? How about saying, “My niece, Kate, is one of the most spectacularly boring people you’ll ever meet. She understands the job is relentless and that’s why she does everything she can to do the minimum. And other than flashing, saying inappropriate things, making insane faces to look engaged and breezing in and out of engagements so fast she doesn’t have time to take off her coat, she has never put a foot wrong!”
    Yeesh!

  58. Shannon says:

    At this point…I am over the Windsors. The old lady, the Tampax prince, the pedo, and that scary looking guy who resembles that preacher in Poltergeist II can eat a fat one!

  59. Marianne Hord says:

    He sounds like one of those parents that their lets their children run amok in a store making a mess and as soon as someone tells them to stop….they go “How dare you speak to my precious angel like that”. Cue eyeroll here. Dude, Megan never said that Kate was a mean person and we still dont know the full context about the exchange. Take a chill pill.

    Also, I think the family needs a reminder that you dont have to be publicly lynching people to do/say racist things.
