The adorable meter just broke — for anyone but the British press.

Prince William and his wife, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, took their children on their first family vacation outside England last week. They opted for skiing in the French Alps, allowing 10-month-old Princess Charlotte and her 2-year-old brother George to play together in deep snow for the first time, according to People. The picture is cuteness defined.

Since returning from vacation, the couple — William, 33, and Kate, 34 — have been busy with their charity work. On Friday, they were visiting a youth mentoring project in London, charming people with their easy rapport as a couple.

Wonder how that will sit with the British media, which lately has not been all smiles when it comes to Prince William.

According to E!, the British press is not happy with William’s work ethic. “First we learned that William did fewer public appearances last year than his 94-year-old grandfather. And then it emerged he only works half the hours of a regular job (in his role as an air ambulance helicopter pilot),” E! reports.

After the vacation photos were released, the Daily Mail headlined its story “Part-time Wills slopes off with Kate and kids,” according to Fortune.

Ouch.
