The journalist thanked her ITV colleagues for giving her the opportunity to speak about the family’s struggles but added she is “overwhelmed” by the road ahead.
“Whatever happens next I’m afraid it is going to be a long road, with an uncertain end that isn’t even nearly in sight right now,” Kate wrote.
“But this week I am refocusing on hope that as a family we are going to pull together with the support of friends and get through everything come what may.”
She continued: “I know that the amazing people keeping Derek alive, stand shoulder to shoulder with me in NEVER giving up on him and, of course, hope that my wonderful Derek is going to keep fighting this and eventually start to slowly recover.”(sic)
