Kate's uncle GARY GOLDSMITH slams 'weasel' Omid Scobie's 'tapestry of jibber' ... trends now

Pantomime season is upon us I know, but I've never seen such a one-dimensional depiction of my niece Kate as the one I have just read in Omid Scobie's book Endgame.

Does the man we all see as Meghan's mouthpiece really believe that the Duchess of Sussex is Cinderella and the Princess of Wales an Ugly Sister?

If he does, he needs his head tested. What does that make Harry? Buttons?

Scobie, of course, has form.

His first book Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan And The Making Of A Modern Royal Family was highly biased towards the Sussexes and, when I saw the author parading his latest tawdry tome round the TV studios this week, I thought he was a smarmy character with a definite financial goal and an awful affected voice. But I didn't expect him to be such a fantasist. 

His book made me feel nauseous. I had to put it down many times because the content made me so angry and I haven't even been able to finish it.

It's such a character assassination of William and Kate in particular, who is mentioned an extraordinary 291 times. There is even a chapter devoted to her, Kate, my niece!

Colour, race, age, creed and religious beliefs have never been a factor in our friendships or values. To think Kate would buck that trend is totally bonkers

And now we're even being told that Kate has been 'accidentally' named as the supposed royal racist, along with her father-in-law, King Charles, in the Dutch translation of the book.

Somehow, the names of two of the most upstanding members of the Royal Family were in the manuscript when it was sent to Dutch translators, in a passage about an exchange of letters between Meghan and Charles regarding members of the Royal Family and unconscious bias.

It's utterly ridiculous to consider that Kate is a racist.

Racism isn't something which is inherent in anyone. It comes from an environment. Both Kate's mum Carole and I grew up in Southall, West London.

Colour, race, age, creed and religious beliefs have never been a factor in our friendships or values.

To think Kate would buck that trend is totally bonkers.

That is not the Kate I know and is simply untrue 

And if the standing ovation she and William got on Thursday night at the Royal Variety Performance is anything to go by, the British public know this too and don't believe a word of these absurd claims.

The whole book is just a tapestry of gibber and falsehoods sewn together with his personal opinion. It is Scobie milking his relationship with the Sussexes for every cent it's worth and stirring up a pot which has been stirred enough.

Let's face it, this one-sided snidey account will make it even harder for any of the Royal Family to reach out to Harry and Meghan now or in the short-term future.

From the first page to the last, all Scobie does is re-tell well-worn stories, but with a particularly vicious slant, using terms such as 'pliable', 'tightly controlled' and 'carefully assembled' to scoff at Kate.

He even pursues the laughable theory that Carole orchestrated Kate's relationship with William, pushing her daughter to choose St Andrews University in a bid to meet William when, in fact, she would rather have gone to Edinburgh.

'The Middleton strategy involved more than just aristocratic affectation — Carole calculatingly placed Kate right at the centre of young Prince William's world,' he writes.

What rubbish. St Andrew's is the best university for history of art and Kate did well to get in.

Does Scobie really believe that Carole was sitting there in a war room down in the basement of Bucklebury planning out some devious strategy saying: 'Right. If we put her in the right place on this day then bang… fireworks'?

Then there's the offensive comparison of my niece to Princess Diana, suggesting that, unlike her late mother-in-law, who was 'strong-minded', Kate has been a 'much more teachable, pliable future Queen'.

I believe it's laudable that Kate works so hard as a member of the Royal Family and she should be applauded for being keen to serve.

This sounds to me like blatant jealousy, as William and Kate have always been the main event and Harry and Meghan the sideshow

No one who has watched Kate over the years could call her shy. She is always getting involved and throwing herself in the deep end

Scobie paints Harry and Meghan as the perfect working royals, suggesting that the Cambridges looked 'dull' in comparison

But Scobie clearly sees this character trait as a negative and even suggests that she earned the nickname 'Katie Keen' on social media. It's not a name I've ever heard used. If it ever was, it must have been bandied about among his two mates.

It sounds to me like Scobie's whole social network would fit in a back of a Mini.

He goes on to claim that Kate is workshy because she only has 20 patronages and he criticises her decision as a mother-of-three to centre her work around school terms. Personally, I think the British public has been really impressed with how William and Kate have chosen to modernise the Royal Family and put their loved ones up there with duty as a priority.

You can see the confidence in young Charlotte and both George and Louis are so well-behaved at public events. Kate is doing a brilliant job as a mother and still finds time for her royal duties.

What's wrong with that? She is a fantastic role model — that's what the majority of decent humans think.
