The letter from Kate's family said: "We already know you are the nicest, kindest, strongest woman in the world and now the whole country knows it too. We are having a brilliant time with the other friends and family so don’t worry about us. But there is a hole in the bed, and in our hearts, where you belong. Keep being the you we know and love so much we are the proudest family in the universe." Responding to the letter, Kate said: "I think as a mum and a wife you do worry so it was so lovely to hear they're proud of me."
