Harry and Meghan should ‘shut the F up’ says Kate’s uncle calling them ‘muppets’ in deleted LinkedIn rant
Kate's uncle Gary Goldsmith's rant comes after Prince Harry and Meghan appeared in a Zoom interview to call an end to structural racism
Kate Middleton's uncle Gary Goldsmith has some grievances to share with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. In a now-deleted LinkedIn post, the brother of Kate's mother Carole Middleton did not have any inhibitions when addressing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, saying, "With so much stuff going on in the world, still these two muppets are craving attention. Please shut the F up and bring up their child and stop talking, let alone demanding. Harry, you have lost our love and respect. Meghan you are a wrong'n."
His rant comes after Harry and Meghan appeared in a Zoom interview to discuss calling an end to structural racism. "Now hush please we are kinda busy saving lives and an economy," he concluded.
Harry and Meghan appeared in the interview call from their stately new $14.2 million (£11 million) home in Santa Barbara, California. Even though the post is now deleted, Goldsmith says he stands by his words. "I totally stand by everything I wrote," said Goldsmith, according to a report in the Daily Mail. "I used to have a lot of respect for Harry and this army career but his new Harry is someone I don't recognize," he continued.
"I find it totally frustrating when we are trying to save lives and look after UK PLC, to be lectured daily on any topic they deem to be important. They have abdicated the UK for the US and obviously don't give a damn about the Royal family," he said clearly infuriated. "We've all had enough of them lecturing us. You can't sell your soul to Netflix for a reported £150 million ($194 million) and then dictate to Mother England."
Kensington Palace has declined to comment on the situation. The couple had reportedly told their friends that "they are not ready to pack their bags - even for a short stay - because they're so happy in their swanky new digs," PageSix reported.
There have also been reports about the frayed relationships between the brothers. In his new book 'Battle of Brothers', author Robert Lacey claims that their relationship was "utterly broken" by Harry's "disrespect" and the pair have barely spoken since. Lacey believes their bond was broken by how the Sussexes went about Megxit - with Harry announcing the plans on his website and Instagram before approving them from the Queen. A source reportedly said of the Megxit rift, "Harry hadn't even had a meeting with the Queen to talk through their plans before announcing it to the world." "The monarchy is an institution based on hierarchy and respect - something drummed into those boys growing up."
"William loves his brother deeply. This is why it is so hurtful to him," the same source revealed according to The Sun.
Lacey, according to The Sun, said, "Some say, 'Oh, it doesn't matter. It will blow over.' But that's not what historians will be saying in ten years' time." Lacey wrote a biography of the Queen in the 1970s titled 'Majesty' and could be deemed as one with plenty of information and claims that the rift between the two brothers can be healed but the Palace "is not working in that direction".
"If this breach between the brothers is not healed in some way it will come to stand with the 1936 Abdication crisis and the 1997 death of Diana as one of the traumas that changed the monarchy," Lacey said, according to The Sun.
