He said on the programme: “I think lockdown has been very hard for so many people.

“I look at this year and if have learned anything, it’s that storms come and go. When you’re in them, they can seem intense but they don’t last forever and it will pass.”

He added: “We are all cheering for you… how are your children?”

Kate told him they wouldn’t have enough time to “go into it”.

But she reassured Bear and viewers that her children – Darcey, 15, and William, 11 – were doing as well as could be expected.

Kate said: “I don’t think we have enough time to go into that but all is as good as it can be, thank you.”
