The Duchess of Cambridge’s uncle has warned Australia that they could “lose” having Kate as queen consort. This comes after suggestions that the country will look to become a Republic once Queen Elizabeth II passes. Gary Goldsmith spoke to 60 Minutes Australia about claims that his royal niece “might never been Queen of Australia”.

He told viewers: “I think it would be to Australia’s loss.

“There’s a very strong bond between our two nations.

“If you don’t get a piece of Kate that way we do, that’s a real shame.

“I think you’re missing out.”

The Australian Republican Movement (ARM) announced it will propose its model for an Australian republic in the latter half of 2021.

A recent online Ipsos poll, conducted for the Age, Sydney Morning Herald and Nine News, found in January that only a third of Australians supported becoming a republic.

However a 2019 study from Australian National University claimed there was just a slim majority (51 percent) of Australians who supported the Queen as head of state.

Some experts have suggested that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s critiques and racism allegations could stir support for the movement.

On their official website, the ARM explain their motivation: “Our head of state should be a patriotic, democratic person who embodies service to our country and its people.

“Our head of state should be an Australian chosen by Australians, not a foreign monarch who inherits the job.

“It is fundamentally unfair, undemocratic and undignified for Australia’s democracy to be subject to a foreign monarchy.”

Mr Goldsmith defended Kate and Prince William, defending his niece’s work ethic.

He told 60 Minutes Australia: “I think she was born ready [to be Queen].

“It’s a modern version of the Royal Family that we know.

“I think she’s absolutely perfect for that role.

“Obviously I’m a bit biased, but wouldn’t Kate and William be perfect at it?”
