Sharing another selfie of the pair, she wrote: ‘A lot has happened in this past week for me. Everything is happening so fast.

‘I made it back from Malawi just in time to be here with my family, And in the past 24 hours I have received an overwhelming amount of love and support.

‘I cannot individually respond to the hundreds of beautiful and heartfelt messages, but I see them, and appreciate you all for sending positivity to my family and I.’

She added: ‘I’m not really sure what to say or do in this situation, it’s something you aren’t ever given a lesson on how to handle, especially when it’s all happening in the public eye.

‘So bear with me and know that I am grateful for all the love. Just, being grateful quietly.’
