Kate’s uncle punched wife
THE Duchess of Cambridge’s uncle has admitted hitting his wife in the face and knocking her to the ground after a drunken argument.
Gary Goldsmith, 52, used a closed fist to strike Julie-Ann Goldsmith outside their home in central London, at around 1.20am on October 13.
Prosecutor Kate Shilton told Westminster Magistrates’ Court yesterday that Mrs Goldsmith fell down after her husband threw what a witnessing taxi driver described as a “left hook”.
He will be sentenced on November 21.
Goldsmith is the younger brother of Carole Middleton, and attended the weddings of both Kate and Pippa.
