Gary Goldsmith has received mixed reviews on Celebrity Big Brother

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's titles should be "taken away", Princess Kate's uncle claimed during a rant on Wednesday's episode of Celebrity Big Brother.

Gary Goldsmith, 58, is the younger brother of Carole Middleton and a contestant on this year's series of Celebrity Big Brother.

The businessman was chatting to fellow Big Brother contestant Fern Britton about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex during Wednesday's episode.

Britton expressed her sorrow for Prince William after his brother, Prince Harry, stepped back from royal duties in 2020.

She said: "My feeling is that William must be furious now to have suddenly the weight of it all on his head and his shoulders."

Goldsmith responded: "His father, wife, brother. While they try and reshape the Royal Family and modernise it.

"I think he's done an amazing job in that horrible situation.

"And he's always seemed that he has had an olive branch open at any time for Harry to come back and be part of the gang.

"I desperately feel that that's the case. It's difficult to get over."

Britton added: "To see two beloved sons warring that way is heartbreaking."

Kate's uncle then claimed: "I genuinely think that they should take the titles away."

Elsewhere in Wednesday's episode, Goldsmith spoke about Kate's maternal family background.

He explained to Britton: "Humble stock. Dad was a painter and decorator. Mum was an accounts clerk, so they worked hard.

"But Carole and I were both 'multi' before we were 30."

After being asked to clarify what he meant, Goldsmith said: "Multi-millionaires."

He added: "That's why I get really a bit narky when they say Kate's a commoner.

"There's nothing common about the family, nothing."

Giving her thoughts about Princess Kate, Britton said: "She's a very well-brought-up woman."

Goldsmith's appearance on the reality TV show comes as the Princess of Wales is recuperating following abdominal surgery in January.

Kate, 42, is resting at Adelaide Cottage with her husband and three children.
