Do hedgehogs eat grass?

No. Hedgehogs are insectivores/omnivores, but not once in my 6+ years of ownership have I seen them eat grass. They eat insects, berries, some meat, eggs, etc.

However, pet hedgehogs will and often do chew on and annoint with grass.

Prince William
Pink (musician)

What did Pink say in her letter to Prince William about him fox hunting?

According to Bangshowbiz Pink, real name Alecia Beth Moore and a member of the animal rights group PETA ((People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), told the U.K. music magazine Q that she was shocked by the manner in which Prince William, eldest son of the late Diana, Princess of Wales and Prince Charles, and grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, responded to her letter regarding fox hunting, saying: I wrote to him to protest about fox hunting and I figured he would be this stuffy, privileged a**hole. But he's like a redneck from the south. If you're brought up shooting and hunting animals, if you really think it's second nature and you're blasting away then it's hard to see the other point of view. You need educating When touring the U.K. in 2006 the 30-year-old singer, whose international hits include "Get the Party Started" and "So What", also wrote to Prince William's grandmother, the Queen, in connection with an animal rights issue. As Contactmusic reported at the time Pink penned a letter to the Queen asking for an end to the use of bear skin for the Busbies that are worn by the guards at Buckingham Palace. Pink explained in 2006: I have written to the Queen and told her that I want to her to stop the use of real fur on the hats worn by the Brigade of Guards at the Palace. One or two Canadian bears are killed for each hat and that's totally unnecessary when they could be wearing faux instead. I think the Queen will listen to me because there is no reason for the guards to continue to wear these when animals are being killed just so they look good. It's a work in progress Speaking about her letter to the Queen, Pink has expressed surprise that she did not receive a reply, confirming that she had not been seeking publicity and had suggested that guards wear hats made from fake fur, designed by Stella McCartney, daughter of former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney. However a spokesman for the Brigade of Guards did apparently respond to Pink's letter, stating that the use of fake fur was a possibility, before adding that the alternatives put forward by PETA had not matched the "wear, durability and practicality of real fur". It is not clear from the Bangshowbiz report how recently it was that Pink wrote to Prince William and when she received a reply. But in October 2008 Contactmusic quoted the singer as saying that the Prince was "a bit rude" for not responding to a letter she had sent to him in 2003, declining the invitation to perform at a concert celebrating his 21st birthday and asking him to tell her why it is he hunts. The contents of the reply from the Prince, to which Pink is now referring, have not been revealed.

Australia

How do you get rid of foxes in Australia and manage the problem?

Given that foxes are an introduced species (within the past 200 years, relatively young) and the ecosystem has not yet adapted to their presence and in adapting more native species may be lost, it is a difficult problem to address.

Widescale extermination campaigns might seem the practical if unpopular solution, but they come with problems (bait and traps may snare native species, causing harm to native species and not just the fox) and are not necessarily effective against an adaptive and nocturnal species like the fox.

The dingo is also an introduced species (descended from domestic dogs), but the Australian ecosystem has had time to adapt to the dingo's presence; after thousands of years, the Dingo is essentially part of the Australian ecosystem now and could have a vital role in controlling the invasive fox as a competing predator. Protecting the Dingo and other native, wild Australian predators competitive with the fox may be the best overall solution. Extermination programs against these native competitors should be curtailed, including in cases of cattle depredation and alternative, non-lethal measures should be taken instead of shoot-to-kill against the native predators (and dingoes) such as robust fences, so that the native predators can survive to keep the fox in check. They would probably not be able to completely kill off the invasive fox, but may keep the population in constant check (so long as the populations of native predators are healthy).

In terms of individuals trying to protect their ranches, chicken coops, etc., the best defense really is a strong defense: robust fencing protected against being dug under or chewed through and protective guard animals such as dogs (which should be well-contained and not let run loose in the wilderness, as that would exacerbate invasive species problems).
