Kate Middleton’s uncle, Gary Goldsmith revealed some personal details on the royal family.
A property developer, 47-year-old Goldsmith talked about Kate and Prince William’s relationship before it came to light, when it came to light and other personal details about Kate including the fact that she once was a tomboy.
In an interview with Hello Magazine, Goldsmith who is Kate’s mom Carole Middleton’s younger brother talked about meeting Kate and William for the first time as a couple. “When I saw them together you actually just thought, even if he wasn’t going to be the King, they would make a great couple. They were very, very good together.”
After their brief break up in 2007 Goldsmith said Kate went to his villa in Ibiza to mend her broken heart. “Kate was very low. [She was] spending a huge amount of time on the phone, walking around the pool. It’s a very relaxing place and it has a very nice vibe and you can hear the sea at night. So in some small way I just hope that being there helped [Kate].”
Talking about the house, Goldsmith said, “The house is very relaxing and it’s very, very secure. You’ve got walls all the way around so it’s very difficult for people to pry on you.” Goldsmith said the house was once used as a gateway after his sister, Carole requested. “We organized a whole itinerary for them, including going over to a neighboring island on a boat.”
During the gateway, William became a common man. “Back at the house a friend of mine was teaching William how to mix on the DJ decks and he performed to the whole family as they swam. So they all had the Ibiza experience from mud baths, to (nightclub) Pacha, to learning how to mix music.”
He went on to talk about Kate’s character and life in general comparing her to younger sister, Pippa Middleton. “Kate works really hard at everything. She is brilliant at whatever she turns her hand to, but works at it, throwing herself into everything. Whereas Pip, everything seems to come very easily.”
