It emerged recently that Gary Goldsmith, the younger brother of the Princess of Wales' mother Carole Middleton, is reportedly preparing to release a book which aims to “fight back” against claims made by Prince Harry in his explosive memoir Spare.
It has been claimed that both Kate, who is thought to enjoy a close relationship with her uncle, and Carole will “look over the manuscript” of Gary's book before it gets passed on to the publisher.
While many will be waiting with eager anticipation to find out what Gary has to say about the Royal Family and the rift between the Waleses and the Sussexes, one leading expert thinks there is little need for the book.
Former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond spoke to OK! about the upcoming book and offered her views on why she doesn't feel it should be published.
Jennie said: "I hope he doesn’t. Or, if he does, I hope it will be HIS story… not the story of the royal rift. I think the tactic so far – to rise above the barbs directed from California and instead to concentrate on work and service – has been both dignified and effective.
"If he starts disputing how events have played out it will surely only deepen the rift and provoke retaliation from the Sussexes. And so the vicious circle will continue. Much better to adopt Camilla’s strategy…least said, soonest mended.
"Mr Goldsmith is said to be wealthy enough, so I can’t think why he would want to write a book in the first place."
When news of Goldsmith's book emerged it was claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan are “dreading” the book’s release.
The source added that Gary, who is rumoured to be heading into the jungle on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here next month, wants to clear the air after his niece was criticised in Harry’s book, as well as the Sussexes Netflix docuseries.
A source said that Gary has decided to “change the focus” of his book, and will now “add in some private family details”.
They added to Closer Magazine: “He won’t want to do anything that will embarrass them, but it could be a good way of putting a Middleton voice out there to set the record straight over some of the things Harry wrote about in Spare.
"Meghan and Harry are preparing for an onslaught of criticism in Gary’s book, and the former actress is “likely to be just as blindsided by Gary’s version of events as Harry”.
