“It was so wonderful, but it also somehow reinforced how sad everything was and how different it is.”

Now that the nation is in a third lockdown, Kate cannot visit Derek.

She added, “Then I’m immediately in a position where I can’t visit.

“We are banned, we have no visits at all and that will be very effective for a lot of people.”

Kate recently reported to her Instagram followers about her “catastrophic” Christmas party.

“We don’t have a TV or WiFi for kids and I, if I don’t have this in isolation over Christmas, feels like a last straw.”
