She added: "Thanks to the typically wonderful #nhs team at #bodmin hospital and particularly wonderful Ruth we managed to get her booted and safely home for further treatment. You were all so kind - thank you so much.

"And thanks to @peugeotuk (again) for lending us a car with enough room for her to keep her leg stretched out for the whole journey (although it did mean my Dad was relegated for the first time ever to the back seat, where he really enjoyed defining the expression 'back seat driver'!!!)" [sic]

Earlier on in the week, Kate returned to social media after nearly three weeks away to give fans a look at her "emotional" half-term vacation.
