According to new reports, the royal’s uncle was involved in a violent scandal and arrested. The man was taken into custody after he allegedly punched his wife, knocking her unconscious after the woman had accused him of doing drugs.
Gary Goldsmith is the Duchess’ mother’s younger sibling.
The mom, Carole Middleton, was also with the pair in a taxi when they started fighting and the brawl apparently continued after they got out of the car.
The taxi driver revealed: ‘He was screaming and swearing at her and she slapped him around the face, and his glasses fell off. He then turned and hit her in the face with a left hook. She fell and cracked her head on the pavement. They seemed to have had a drink, and she was upset with him, saying, ‘I have not seen my husband for a week, and you go and leave me to do cocaine with your business buddies.’ She said, ‘Do you think I’m stupid’? He started yelling at her and saying, ‘You are a dirty wh*re.’’
The driver went on to claim that Kate’s uncle was rude to him as well, right from the start.
He apparently boasted about spending no less than £100 on cabs every day.
The man recalls pulling over at their house, and that is when the wife slapped the unruly husband before he shot back by punching her.
Julie-Ann was taken to the hospital, and the police soon came to take the man away but not before asking the taxi driver to confirm the abuser was really him.
Goldsmith was soon released on bail.
The royal family is yet to make an official statement regarding the arrest.
