In her column for the NZ Herald, Elser wrote: "For nearly a full five years, Kate was stalked, harassed, dog-beaten, and generally harassed by certain quarters of the media."

She continued, "A picture of Kate making some terrible face or losing her was worth much more than just going about her business." What is remarkable, said Elser, is his chivalry and grace under fire.

"There's no video of him crying, yelling hysterically at the press, or maybe you or I moaning," Elser said.
