Kate Middleton is back, but her biggest controversy is still to come.

“Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are more than likely going to be in the firing line as Gary has made no secret about how little he likes them,” a source told The Sun.

In the past, Goldsmith has expressed his distaste for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, even referring to them as “two muppets craving attention” in a post on his LinkedIn, and the 58-year-old’s loose-lipped approach to the royals has reportedly left his family worried about what he might say in the Big Brother house.

“They aren’t happy he’s going into Celebrity Big Brother. It is infuriating for them. Kate doesn’t need this stress,” a source told The Sun.

“In the eyes of the public, Gary’s become the black sheep of the Middleton family. Carole is his sister, so there will always be love, but they no longer see eye-to-eye on lots of things. He has said he doesn’t have their blessing to go into the house but is going full steam ahead anyway.”

As for Catherine, a spokesperson from Kensington Palace has clarified the reason she went MIA (and no, it has nothing to do with her uncle!). “We were very clear from the outset that the Princess of Wales was out until after Easter and Kensington Palace would only be providing updates when something was significant,” they said.

Middleton is expected to return to her royal duties in April. Celebrity Big Brother will air for the next three weeks in the UK, and with the Princess still resting at home, we’ve got an inkling that she will be watching on.

In horror.
