During the message William said: “We wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who has shared their experiences and taken action through Time to Change, helping to challenge the stigma which surrounds mental health.”

“Movements like Time to Change have helped to transform attitudes,” Kate added as they spoke from Anmer Hall. “And encouraged more openness about mental health in schools, communities and the workplace.'

Members of the public found it ‘hypocritical’ of William, 38, and his wife Kate, 39, to be campaigning about mental health.

Taking to Twitter one fan responded to the video saying: “They couldn't be bothered to reach out to Harry and Megan. What hypocrites! I used to love them.”

“Yeah they should really work on apologizing to the Sussex’s,” advised another.

“They did that to Harry and Meghan,” a fellow Twitter user added. “They shouldn't be anywhere near Mental health charities.”

“Kind of think they have been completely hypocritical on the subject,” agreed another royal fan.

However, sparking a debate one onlooker said: “Whilst I appreciate others feel they are being hypocritical here (and rightly so), lets not forget they are STILL bringing awareness to a subject that is hugely stigmatised. We need to change that!! Any media posts on Mental Health should be welcomed.”

“They're an amazing couple,” added a fan of the Duke and Duchess.

“Bless these two,” said another fan. “Thank you for continuing to champion Mental Health and breaking the stigma around it.”

During William and Kate’s speech on mental health stigma, they warned the work isn’t finished yet.

“We cannot afford to stop here,” said the Duchess who was dressed in a simple black polo neck top with her hair tucked behind one ear.

Wearing a light blue jumper and white shirt William added: “We need to keep talking, keep taking action and continue to stand up to the stigma.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s words come after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spoke on TV about how Kate reportedly left Meghan in tears during a row over bridesmaid dresses.

Meghan also opened up on feeling suicidal during her time in the UK, she said she “couldn't be left alone” and told Harry she “didn't want to be alive anymore”.
