Kate’s partner Derek Draper has been in hospital since March after battling coronavirus.
Derek is now free of the virus, however, the Good Morning Britain presenter previously said it has “wreaked havoc” on his body.
What did Kate and William say about Kate Garraway?
William told Kate: “You are doing amazingly though. If it wasn’t for social distancing we would both give you a hug.”
The Duchess added: “I think you’re amazing to do this as I know you’ve had such a hard time yourself.”
The royal then asked the presenter how the family were coping.
Mum-of-two Kate replied: “I think we are all doing OK but it’s very difficult because you can’t visit that often and the children haven’t got to visit Derek.
“And I think that’s a huge pressure for everyone – mental and physical health.”
Kate then thanked the couple for taking the time to join her at St Bartholomew’s hospital to honour the NHS staff.
William added: “We’re always keen to help, especially this year with everything going on. It’s been difficult for a lot of people.”
Kate recently opened up about meeting the royal couple during filming for the awards show.
The star said on GMB: “It was a great honour for me.
“I got to spend a bit of time with them because they were giving their time [for the Pride of Britain Awards].”
She continued: “They look like they’re blanking me, I actually just sort of followed them for the day.
“No, they were taking part in something for Pride of Britain on ITV on November 1. It’s really moving and beautiful.”
