Meanwhile, in October, Kate announced that her husband had not yet seen his elderly parents in the hospital.
She explained, “Derek’s mother and father couldn’t see him.
“I think if you can go six months without a hug from your critically ill son, the rest of us can probably get through.
“Sorry, I didn’t mean to depress everyone. But that is the reality of getting involved in the virus. “

Kate had previously announced that her children – daughter Darcey and son Billy – would see their father in December.
She said: “There was a nice moment we had, over time we saw Derek and the kids, which was the first time they could.”
The Derek family has not been able to visit since then due to coronavirus restrictions.
