He added in another post: “@thekatelawer is absolutely pooped so I’ve left her to get some sleep and I’m going to try and get some shut eye myself.

"Nuchky is gorgeous and has lots of hair which make me think Kate definitely has a hairy lover out there."

Saying it had been an “overwhelming day”, Martin added: “I’m glad to see she has about 2000,000 aunties ready to march for her if she ever needs help."
