Although he has fought off the coronavirus infection, Kate said her husband had “lost a huge amount of weight” during his health battle.
She revealed her husband “looked so different” on FaceTime after he shaved because his beard had grown “so long”.
Speaking to HELLO! magazine, Kate explained: “Derek’s lost a huge amount of weight and when the nurse shaved him because his beard had grown so long, he looked so different.
“[Their children] had never seen him without stubble or a beard before. During their chats, they tell him what they’ve been doing and their sense of humour often shines through.”
