Kate Middleton's uncle Gary Goldsmith shares what he thinks Royal Family might think of photoshopped image saga

Kate Middleton's uncle Gary Goldsmith shares what he thinks Royal Family might think of photoshopped image saga

The Celebrity Big Brother star opened up about his niece on Good Morning Britain

Gary Goldsmith has appeared on ITV and shared his verdict on the ‘edited’ photograph of his niece, the Princess of Wales, and her three children.

The recently evicted Celebrity Big Brother contestant, 59, appeared to Good Morning Britain on Monday (11 March) to have his say on the doctored Mother’s Day photograph.

Now, if you're unaware of the situation then you need to know that Kate Middleton, 42, has been away from the public eye due to undergoing a planned abdominal surgery.

Her absence has sparked a social media frenzy and over the weekend Kensington Palace released an official photograph of Kate alongside her children - Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five.

The post was to mark Mother's Day and saw William, The Prince of Wales, 41, being credited as the photographer.

In the caption, Kate thanked fans of the Royal Family for their ‘kind wishes and continued support’ during her recent health scare.

However, after posting the sweet snap to X, (formerly known as Twitter) fans were quick to point out some doctored elements such as Charlotte’s sleeve and her mother’s missing ring.

After finding herself in a speculation storm, Kate released another statement admitting fans were right - she’d edited the photograph.

In a message signed from 'C', she wrote: "Like many amateur photographers, I do occasionally experiment with editing.

"I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused.

"I hope everyone celebrating had a very happy Mother’s Day."

Following the tsunami of speculation, Kate's uncle Gary has now had his say on the picture.

Following his CBB departure, Gary appeared on ITV and claimed the monarchy would be ‘shocked’ about the image.

He was originally invited onto Good Morning Britain to chat about his time in the Big Brother house but the chat quickly turned to his niece and the infamous snap.

Speaking to Gary, Susanna Reid said: "Does anything about it strike you as odd or were you as reassured as everyone was supposed to be? The purpose of the photograph was to show her health, happy, and smiling with her children.”

In response, he said: “The smiles and faces said it all for me, I thought it was beautiful.

“Obviously the family wouldn't be the ones to do any touch ups, so if that's gone through some filter before it's gone out to the broader world then they would be shocked in themselves.

Gary Goldsmith appeared on GMB to share his thoughts.

“But all I was looking at was the faces, the smiles, and all that it looked like the beautiful family that they are. And it looked really genuine with the smiles on faces.”

Elsewhere in the conversation, Gary revealed that he hadn’t spoken to the Princess for ‘maybe a year’ and that he is ‘unfortunately’ more likely to see her at family occasions.

He added that he sees his other niece and Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton, more often.
