"Throughout this pandemic you have proved yourselves as compassionate leaders, you have provided consistency and comfort, always striking the right tone. Merry Christmas," wrote one.
"What a lovely message in such difficult times. Sending best wishes from New Zealand," added another, with a third writing: "Beautiful message."
The Cambridges' full message read: " This Christmas our thoughts are with those of you who are spending today alone, those of you who are grief stricken from the loss of a loved one and those of you on the frontline who are somehow mustering the energy to put your own lives on hold and at risk to look after the rest of us.
"Wishing you a merry Christmas doesn’t feel right this year, so instead we’re wishing for a better 2021.
"And for those who are struggling today, there is support out there if you need it: @giveusashoutinsta @MindCharity @SamartiansCharity @CalmZone @SilverlineUK @ourfrontline @nhscharitiestogether @royalvolservice."
