The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wished everyone a smashing-good Easter. 

• Prince William and Kate Middleton took to Instagram to send a sweet holiday message. 

•  Followers can see a chocolate egg being smashed in reverse in a cute video on the @kensingtonroyal page. Once pieced together, the egg reads, "Happy Easter." 

• In other royal news, a biographer claims that Queen thinks Prince Harry is a 'bit of a lost soul' like her sister. 

Although typical Easter traditions took a backseat this year, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge still sent out their well wishes via an adorable video. Sweet sentiments, bunny emojis, and hearts overflowed on the comments section after Prince William and Kate Middleton shared the clip.

Although many were quick to praise the royal couple for their holiday note, it looks like Prince William got himself in a bit of hot water across other social media platforms. During his time at the Conservation International Gala in the U.K., the Duke of Cambridge suggested that we “reset our relationship with nature and our trajectory as a species." 

Twitter didn't respond favorably to Prince William's request.

In an effort to encourage Britons to "reset" the climate, Prince William expressed his concerns over impending natural disasters and those who could be affected by them. However, many people felt as though the royals' private jets and Range Rovers don't exactly support this eco-friendly mindset. While Prince William might have had good intentions, overall, the message came across as hypocritical. And this isn't the first time the royal family has been criticized for their messages on climate change: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle received similar backlash for address their environmental concerns, despite using private jets.
