Shaven-headed and tattooed Gary, 47, who is Carole Middleton's brother, told the paper he thought it was a good thing that the Royal Baby would spend the first weeks of his or her life living with Kate's family in their newly-purchased £4.85million Georgian manor house in Berkshire.
"Kate's doing brilliantly in that role," he said. "And you throw a baby into that mix – they're going to do it fabulously. You just know that the baby is going to be introduced to the public fantastically well."
Gary, who has been married three times, has a young daughter, 10-year-old Tallulah. He says she is remarkably unfazed that the future Queen of England is her older cousin.
"She's so cool about it, and I don't think I could have been at that age. She never talks about [the Duchess] at school. She is always going to be her cousin, who Kate writes little notes to and does fairy dances with," he explained, adding his little girl is 'really excited' about the impending arrival.
"As am I," he added. "I love babies."
