The clocks have gone forward an hour for Spring in the UK - marking the official start of British Summer Time.
However, many British people have joked about the pointlessness of the move, given that the nation remains in coronavirus lockdown.
A discussion around the clocks changing - which takes place on the final Sunday of March each year, intended to save energy and encourage people to spend more time outdoors - has begun trending on Twitter.
Social media users have teased that they wish time would jump forward several months so the pandemic can be over with.
Can we put clocks forward by 3 months? Asking for a nation. #clocksforward— Prince Charles (@Charles_HRH) March 29, 2020

Others noted that, while in past years they may have been worried about being late to the office on Monday, for 2020 there will be no such concerns.
Many admitted that self-isolation had caused them to lose track of time completely - with them not even knowing the day, let alone the hour.
Last night, the country saw their clocks skip 1am and jump straight to 2am, meaning many would have lost an hour’s sleep.
The clocks are due to go back again on October 25th, when the UK will re-enter Greenwich Mean Time.
Remember the clocks go forward tonight. If anyone is still bothering to check the passage of time.#ClocksForward— Stephen Mawhinney (@sjmawhinney) March 28, 2020
Smart phones and other digital devices usually change to the correct time automatically, while analogue clocks will need physically tweaking.
As the nation continues to struggle with vitally-important self-isolation, Prince William and Kate Middleton have given their support to a new £5m initiative to help the UK’s mental health in lockdown.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have used their royal platform to highlight new guidance released by Public Health England today which aims to support people in looking after their mind in isolation, as well as providing tips to parents and carers on protecting children’s wellbeing.
In a post on Instagram this morning, the couple told their 11.4m followers about how they have been working with organisations assisting the nation during the pandemic - and also gave fans an insight into their impressive working from home set-ups.

They shared two images of the couple speaking on the telephone at their respective desks at their London home, Kensington Palace.
She also revealed her eye-catching colour-coordinated book collection - including the Penguin Clothbound Classics titles Sense & Sensibility and The Odyssey, which cost £11 each.
Another picture shows William, 37, in a different room with a slightly clearer desk, featuring an ornate lamp and a printer on top of an office cabinet.
