Princess Kate's uncle has admitted the royal has not spoken to him in over a year, following his embarrassing Big Brother stint.

Gary Goldsmith, 58, became the first contestant to be evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house on Friday evening.

The businessman frequently boasted about his royal connections on the show.

From speaking about the Princess of Wales's whereabouts to dishing his opinions on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Goldsmith received mixed reviews during his time on the programme.

In a new interview, Goldsmith discussed the last time he had spoken to Princess Kate.

He told Good Morning Britain he had not spoken to Kate in “maybe a year”.

During his time on Big Brother, the 58-year-old admitted that it was difficult to get in contact with his niece.

He told fellow contestants Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne: "It's difficult to get hold of Kate at the best of times, and she’s got children and I love the fact that she’s putting family first."

During his entrance into the Big Brother house, host AJ Odudu asked Goldsmith if Kate, 42, would be watching from home.

Goldsmith responded: "If she is sitting behind a sofa, yes!"

He added: "It'll be a nice one in a nice house somewhere, I can guarantee that!"

Fellow Big Brother contestant Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, who previously won Love Island in 2022, asked Goldsmith about the Princess of Wales's whereabouts once he was inside the house.

She asked: "Where is Kate?" Goldsmith replied: "So, because she doesn't want to talk about it.

"The last thing I'm going to do... There's a kind of code of etiquette.

"If it is announced, I will give you an opinion."

The Love Island star later told the businessman: "I hope she's OK."

Goldsmith added: "She's getting the best care in the world and all the family has done is put the wagons around and looked after the family first before anything else."

During Goldsmith's GMB interview, he was asked about his niece's Mother's Day photo which caused controversy after Kate admitted she had edited the picture.

The Princess of Wales’s uncle described the picture as “beautiful” and “really genuine”.

The image of Kate and her children was withdrawn by international picture agencies later the same day because the image had been manipulated, for which Kate later took responsibility.
