    A family clip showing Prince William, his wife Kate and their three children, George, Charlotte and Luis, spend time together on the beach, has gathered thousands of comments on social media, some more cynical than others.

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrated ten years of marriage with a release of a short family video, shared on the royals’ social media accounts. Prince William and his family are seen playing and laughing on a day out near the family's home in Norfolk.

    "Thank you to everyone for the kind messages on our wedding anniversary. We are enormously grateful for the 10 years of support we have received in our lives as a family. W & C," they wrote on their Twitter and Instagram pages. 

    ​The royal couple’ video reel was welcomed by commentators on social media, who called it “beautiful” and “adorable.” However, others reacted with mockery and criticism of William and Kate, calling the video “staged.”

    ​The royal couple also released two new photographs of themselves to mark a decade since they were married on 29 April 2011 at Westminster Abbey in London. 

    The celebrations comes less than two weeks after the funeral of Prince Philip, William's grandfather, who died at the age of 99.
