Sharing a photo from a year ago of herself in a swimming costume cradling Noa, Kate said she was 'desperately trying to be happy' at the time as she struggled with depression and anxiety.

Kate posted the picture alongside a photograph taken on Saturday, exactly one year later, and admitted that she and Noa, who she nicknames Tayto, are both much happier now.

She penned: 'Same day, same month, one year apart.

'The difference in both of us is remarkable. In the photo on the left, I was desperately trying to be happy and get on with my life as a new Mum but inside I was at my lowest point ever.

'I was going through post-natal depression, had recently been diagnosed with generalised anxiety disorder and felt like I was failing on so many levels as Mum to Noa and partner to Boj.'

She also shared an array of other pictures of her fiancé Martin Bojtos cuddling their daughter as they enjoyed a sun-filled morning in their garden on Saturday.

In the snaps, Kate showed off her sensational figure in a skimpy two-piece, made up of a cropped black vest top and animal print bikini bottoms.

The model, who is set to marry Martin in two weeks, flashed a huge grin and flaunted her fresh-faced beauty while she wore her platinum tresses in a straight fashion.

The family were also joined by their adorable dog Shirley, who Kate recently revealed would be an honorary 'flower girl' at her wedding.

In a lengthy caption alongside the snaps, Kate revealed how deciding to stop breastfeeding last year improved her mental health as she was finding it 'stressful'.

She wrote: 'It was during this weekend away (Boj surprised me with a weekend staycation at a lovely Airbnb in Henley-On-Thames with friends for my 41st birthday) that I decided to stop breastfeeding as it was becoming too stressful with Noa not wanting to feed from me and my milk supply dwindling.
