Kate Garraway was dubbed ‘amazing’ by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for her resilience amid her husband Derek Draper’s COVID-19 battle during the annual Pride Of Britain Awards on Sunday evening.  

Kate, 53, was joined by Prince William and Kate Middleton in a pre-recorded segment to honour the NHS – a cause close to the Good Morning Britain anchor’s heart since her husband contracted coronavirus months ago.

Thanking the Duke and Duchess for joining her for the show, Kate, 38, replied: ‘I think you’re amazing to do this – you’ve had such a hard time yourself. How are you all doing?’

‘We are doing okay – it’s very difficult, you can’t visit. The children still haven’t been able to visit. I think that is a huge pressure for everybody.’

William, 38, said: ‘It’s been very difficult for a lot of people.’ To which Kate replied: ‘You’ve had it in your own family as well!’

‘Yeah, my father had it very early on,’ William said, with Kate adding that Prince Charles contracted COVID-19 around the same time as Derek, 53, did. 

Kate revealed on Friday that her husband, a former Blair lobbyist, was able to whisper the word ‘pain’ to his wife, who watched on ‘in tears’ over FaceTime.

He added: ‘I certainly have no plans to stop anytime soon, I’m not done yet not by a long chalk. The compassion and love that I have been shown from far and wide has given me renewed purpose and re-energised me.

‘Through The Captain Tom Foundation my family and I have a mission to inspire hope where it is needed most. I do hope we can continue to inspire others as together we have a real chance to ensure that tomorrow will be a good day.’

Touching down at London’s Royal Hospital Chelsea – illuminated for the occasion with a stunning Pride Of Britain Awards set and red, white and blue lights in celebration of this year’s winners – Carol stunned in a sparkling blue gown as she introduced the awards – this year held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Carol was sure to start things off with a tongue-in-cheek opening speech, referencing the events of the past seven months.

‘Whether you’ve been working from the kitchen table, home-schooling the kids, teaching your nan to Zoom, or even taking a day trip to Barnard Castle, they’ve been tough times for us all,’ Carol said – the latter a jibe at Boris Johnson’s Chief Adviser Dominic Cummings’ infamous outing in April, which saw him flout lockdown rules.

As the awards aired on ITV, landmarks across London, including the London Eye, BT Tower and County Hall, were also seen lit up in the colours of the union jack flag.

Carol was joined for the awards by the likes of Ashley Banjo and Susanna Reid to introduce some of the winners.

Susanna looked stunning in a sparkling floor-length red cocktail dress and introduced the Good Morning Britain Young Fundraiser Award winner, Tony Hudgell, who at five-years-old raised more than £1 million in a lockdown walking challenge, inspired by Captain Sir Tom Moore.

The youngster was surprised by his heroes Ant & Dec, who dressed up as Nutcracker soldiers to hand him his prize.

Emmie – a schoolgirl and leukaemia patient – was inspired to provide meals, support and comfort to the families of other seriously-ill children.

In a double-honour, Ashley and Jordan also presented Manchester United and England star Marcus with a Special Recognition award for his remarkable campaign to stop kids going hungry.

Marcus, 22, dedicated his time in lockdown to fight on behalf of the 200,000 disadvantaged children on free school meals, and forced Boris Johnson into a u-turn over plans to end support over the summer.

Marcus, who relied on free school dinners when he was growing up in Manchester, also helped to raise £20m to feed another three million people, and is continuing to provide a powerful voice for under-privileged families.

Former victim of domestic violence Rebecca Beattie was awarded the Prince’s Trust Young Achiever prize for setting up Always B. U, an ethical clothing brand dedicated to raising awareness of domestic violence.

Rebecca was with her ex-partner, who physically abused her, for five years. She struggled to provide the basics for herself and her son because of her partner’s economic abuse.

When Rebecca left the relationship at the age of 24, her ex-partner and father to her child attacked her so badly that she needed facial reconstruction surgery. He was later jailed for 16 months.

Prince Charles interrupted an interview with Laura Whitmore to present her with her award, leaving her speechless as she believed she had been invited to Clarence House for something else entirely.

‘You’ve actually, can you believe this, won the Prince’s Trust Young Achiever of the Year Award from Pride of Britain,’ he told her. ‘It is much deserved, to say the least!’

Olly Murs then surprised a brave police officer by presenting her with an award while she was on set at The Voice.

The singer, 36, took to the stage while PC Claire Bond was testing out the judges chairs and began to sing Dear Darlin’, prompting her to press the buzzer.

In September 2018, PC Bond was responding to reports a car had crashed into a garage in Coton Fields, near the route of a 10k race.

PC Bond, a mother of four from Staffordshire, tried to grab his car keys and struggled with Malhi. She was determined to stop his driving, because if he escaped. 

He was heading straight for the route of the race, which was packed with runners. During the struggle she was run over, dragged along the ground and crushed against a fence.

She was eventually pulled to safety but had to undergo a five-hour operation to save her shattered leg.

Malhi fled on foot and was last arrested and jailed for 12 years. A year after the incident, PC Bond took part in the same race to raise money for the charity Care of Police Survivors.

When eight-year-old Hasti was diagnosed with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome – which has no cure or treatment – her father spent 35 days, sleeping each night in the tent he carried on his back, to raise £50,000. In total, he ended up raising more than £500,000.

Halfway through his walk, he was joined by Hasti, as they dropped off a petition at Downing Street, asking for more support for children with rare diseases.

And Hasti was also on hand to present his Pride of Britain trophy when TV presenter Ore Oduba turned up at his army base in Hampshire to surprise him with the news he had won the ITV Fundraiser award.
