While both Prince William and Kate Middleton were reportedly in attendance at James Middleton and Alizee Thevenet’s wedding, along with other close members of the Middleton family, there was one person who did not get an invite, despite being in close proximity at the time. According to the Daily Mail, the missing family member was Gary Goldsmith, who happens to be the often outspoken brother of Carole Middleton.
Yes, this is the same Gary who was sentenced after an alleged assault against his wife back in 2017, per People, and the same Gary who has lashed out at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. “The harsh truth — in my opinion — is that if Harry doesn’t get a grip and stop this self-indulgent episode, there will soon be no common ground or relationship to rebuild,” Gary told Closer back in June, even though there’s no indication that he knows Harry or what goes on behind closed doors at Buckingham Palace.
Gary also told Daily Mail that there’s no way his niece, Kate, made Meghan cry before her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018, as if he were allegedly there. “If anyone had a hissy fit, it must have been Meghan,” He said. James said that Gary, who is as famous for making headlines as he comments about them, was why he didn’t want Gary at the wedding. Every family has one unruly uncle, right?
