Kate Middleton’s troublesome uncle Gary Goldsmith has been arrested for assault in London according to new reports. Kate Middleton’s mother, Carole Middleton, is Gary’s older sister.
A police report states that the 52-year-old was charged on Friday, October 13 with assault by beating.

Also, he attended the wedding with his 15-year-old daughter Tallulah, and not his wife Julie-Ann.
For the most part the Middletons have kept their distance from Gary and his problems. So far Kate Middleton hasn’t made any comments about her uncle’s arrest although there’s a slim chance that she will say something. As a matter of fact, it’s unlikely that Carole Middleton will make any comments either, as she wants to distance herself as much as possible from her problematic family.
