Kate Garraway shares stunning family reunion video in Cornwall and thanks those with Derek at home

·2-min read

Kate Garraway shared a lovely video reuniting with extended family in Cornwall, not having seen them since before the pandemic, and the backdrop to the reunion was simply breathtaking. Kate called the scene "paradise" and we can't disagree.

The TV star thanked her husband Derek Draper's parents and sisters for making the trip possible. They came down to London to stay with Derek and help his nurses while she was away, as he remains in serious recovery from his year long coronavirus hospitalisation. 

She wrote in the caption:"Thanks to the wonderful mum, dad and sisters Draper for coming down to be with Derek (with nurses too of course), so I could take my mum, dad, Darcey and Billy to Cornwall."

It was a special reunion for the family who hadn't been together since 2019, and there were even some new additions to meet! 

Kate continued in the caption: "We got to see my brother, aunts, uncles, cousins and new baby cousins! None of us have been able to get to see each other since Xmas 2019. So much love and v emotional - not that it made our annual football match any less competitive!!!"

And what a scene for such an emotional sporting event, the Cornish coastline never fails to disappoint and this clip is no exception; the sea is absolutely glistening just beyond the lush fields of green, with the sun setting over rocky coves. Idyllic.

The family definitely deserve a lovely break after the year they've had, and Kate was sure to wish all her fans and followers the best too, writing; "Hope you have all had a great half term xxx #specialmemories"
