The incident happened on Friday (July 1), and Kate desperately tweeted Black Cabs Lost Property – a feed to help people who have left things in the back of taxis.
In her message, Kate said: “@BC_Lostproperty help!! Have just brought Derek home in a mobility black cab from hospital for a weekend visit – and have left a case with all his meds and kit in the front!
“The driver recognised me but may not know it’s there – please look and get in touch – need urgently!!”
‘The power of Twitter’
Fans were thrilled Kate managed to resolve the situation.
One said: “Absolutely incredible news Kate”
Another added: “The power of Twitter,” and one more said: “Brilliant news.”
Fans had also rallied to help out after Kate’s initial shout out.
One tweeted: “I know the driver Kate as he mentioned he’d taken you and your husband to me this evening.
“I’m trying to get in touch right now.”
Derek Draper health update
Derek spent more than a year in hospital after contracting Covid back in March 2020.
He returned home last April and now receives round-the-clock care.
Last month, Kate told her fans that Derek had been in and out of hospital.
She said on Instagram: “So Derek has been in and out of hospital a lot recently.
“Hopefully the wonderful health teams will help him improve but I woke up early feeling exhausted and very fretful.”
Kate also opened up about her relationship with Derek in an interview with Good Housekeeping.
She said: “In many ways, we’re still learning how we are as man and wife, as so much has changed.”
