And many followers revealed their own personal struggles as they empathised with Kate.

One shared: “I’ve struggled for years with pigmentation too, was so insecure about it, would have people comment on it and no amount of hiding from the sun or sun creams would stop it from appearing. I really felt I was the only one with it.

“I’ve learned to embrace it now and over time it is slowly disappearing. Looking back I wish I hadn’t worried about it so much. Team pigmentation!”
