Meet Kate on Instagram

She shared an emotional post about Adele’s health condition and voiced her support for her partner, writing: “My @adeleroberts, after lots of checks, tests & scans, has been diagnosed with bowel cancer. The last few weeks have been…well I can’t even describe them. Nothing feels real…but also suddenly everything feels hyper real. There have been lots of tears (mainly from me), lots of sleepless nights, but surprisingly there’s been a lot of laughing too. I can’t wait for Adele to tell you about those times when she’s on the mend.
“Tomorrow she’ll be having surgery…I can’t go with her or be there when she wakes up & it’s the most horrible feeling desperately wanting her to get in that hospital ASAP but desperately not wanting to be without her.”
