'I'm Embarrassed ... But I Stand By It': Kate Middleton's Uncle Doesn't Regret Bashing Prince Harry & Meghan Markle
Kate Middleton's uncle Gary Goldsmith is finally addressing the rude remarks he made last year about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
In October, Carole Middleton's younger brother took to business networking platform LinkedIn to slam the couple's recent actions and behavior, but his post wasn't well received, which resulted in it being taken down.

"With so much going on in the world still these two muppets are craving attention. Please shut the F up and bringing up your child and stop talking, let alone demanding," he wrote in his now-deleted message. "Now hush please we are kinda busy saving lives and an economy."
While appearing on 60 Minutes Australia, Goldsmith admitted that his words were a little harsh, but he didn't seem too apologetic.
"I'm embarrassed about doing it but I stand by it," he stated. "I'm just very disappointed with them. I think there's a whole nation that's massively disappointed."
"We all love Harry, the whole world loves Harry. But you just don't do what they did and then go on Oprah and talk like that," he explained. "It's just not the way the world works."
After clearing up his intentions, Goldsmith touched on his niece, noting that he'll likely be overcome with emotion when she becomes the queen.

"I'll be like a baby. She's someone to be super super super proud of. Hopefully that comes across," he shared. "I genuinely will say she is nicer on the inside than she is on the outside. She's a very beautiful soul."
Goldsmith has previously praised Kate and gushed over his excitement of her joining the royal family.
"It’s a fairy tale beyond fairy tales," he said of her marriage to Prince William. "We come from really humble stock. My father was a painter and decorator, mum was an accounts clerk and their eldest granddaughter was at Westminster Abbey about to marry the future king of this country."
