Now, the mum-of-two has spoken of a miraculous conversation she had with her husband over a video call, admitting that he "sobbed" during their chat.
In an extract from her book, The Power Of Hope, Kate says that she spoke to her husband about one of their first dates, dancing away to Aerosmith's hit single, I Don't Want To Miss A Thing.
Speaking about their video call, Kate noted that while gazing into her husband’s eyes, it reminded her of the night in question during which she had "squirmed" as she attempted to stop looking at Derek.
