As Piers quietly listened next to her, she added: "And then she did an interview with The Sun over the weekend as well, more details came out. So, huge, huge love to Kate. She's going through hell. The family is going through hell. But there is hope still, of course. And she said they were hoping for that miracle and we're all hoping with her so huge love to Kate."
