Prince William and Kate Middleton received mixed reactions from royal fans after the couple posted a message for a mental health charity.
The 38-year-old Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, 39, posted a video for the mental health charity, Time To Change.
However, their benevolent message calling for an end to the mental health stigma has been criticized and praised as well.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a message to thank everyone who participated in Time to Change’s campaign to end the mental health stigma.

What did William and Kate say in the video?
The royal couple first thanked the charity for helping to get a grip on mental health perceptions.
William said, “For the past 15 years, Time To Change champions have inspired and supported thousands of people across the country.
“And now mental health has finally moved mainstream as part of our daily lives.”

“The job is not done yet, however, and we cannot afford to stop here,” continued Kate.
“We have to keep talking, keep acting, and keep facing the stigma,” said William.
Picking up the thread again, Kate said, “It’s so important that we value our sanity as much as we do our physical health.”
Some praised the couple
It didn’t take long for fans to share their reaction to the video.
And since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s interview with Oprah Winfrey was fresh in my mind, opinions were divided.
You are doing a great job, William & Kate, this is very important and a difficult role.
One wrote, “You are doing a great job William & Kate, this is very important and a difficult role.
“They are great mental health / illness ambassadors and yes you will get stuck but ignore them!”
Another said: “Fantastic news.”
Why did some people react negatively?
The response was not all positive, however.
One Twitter user said, “I think it’s a bit hypocritical for you to advocate mental health if you could have helped Harry & Meghan.
“They continue to avoid publicly supporting Harry & Meghan.”

Another wrote: “I can’t take these two seriously, not after her sister-in-law finds out she can’t get help for her depression and suicidal thoughts because it would look bad for the company.
“Your mental health advocacy is nothing more than a window dressing.”
