The Duchess of Cambridge’s uncle, Gary Goldsmith, has reconciled with his wife after he was convicted of attacking her during a drunken street row.
The couple had been estranged since the incident in October, but made up during a New Year’s Eve party at his notorious villa in Ibiza, dubbed Maison de Bang Bang.
Mr Goldsmith, 52, narrowly avoided jail in November when he was handed a 12 month community order for the attack on Julie-Ann, 48, outside their London home.
Chief Magistrate, Emma Arbuthnot, also fined him £5,000 and ordered him to attend an alcohol rehabilitation programme.
He was described as a “mean, nasty drunk” during the case, but Westminster Magistrates’ Court also heard how the millionaire businessman remained devoted to his wife and hoped that with the help of counselling they could be reconciled.
Since then he had reportedly been staying in a hotel as he sought to patch things up with his wife.
But Mr Goldsmith confirmed that the couple got back together over New Year and were working hard to make their relationship work.
It is understood the pair spent the holiday at the villa with a number of close friends.
Asked if they were back together, Mr Goldsmith replied: “We’ve had a great New Year. It’s been really good fun, so yes.”
In a tweet he added: “When two people really care about each other they will always look for a way to make it work, no matter how hard it is.”
Mr Goldsmith, who is the brother of the Duchess’s, mother, Carole Middleton, was arrested after punching his wife as they made their way home from a night out together.
In the wake of the attack he was banned from contacting his wife and was threatened with a restraining order.
