He added: “I know what a difference the messages you are sending (make), and the great source of strength and support they are for her, Bill and Darcey at the moment. So I just wanted to say thank you. I can’t reply to all of them because there are just so many and the ones that say, ‘I don’t suppose you’ll ever read this Ben’, I’ve read it and I appreciate every single one, they really do make a huge difference, so thank you.”
