The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have received their first shot of the coronavirus vaccine. The Prince who had been infected with the virus in March last year, was the first member of the Royal Family to make it clear that he would take the vaccine when it was his turn without jumping the queue. It is not clear as to which vaccine they received but it is likely that the Oxford AstraZeneca must have been administered by palace doctors.
The couple have been isolating at Highgrove House in Gloucestershire. Currently, the Duchess is at her Wilshire home, Ray Mill House and is happy after getting her shot of the vaccine.
News of the royal vaccinations comes after Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, urged people over the age of 70 to receive the vaccine after arranging an appointment. Queen Elizabeth 94, and her husband Prince Philip received their dose of the vaccine last month. It was administered by a household doctor at Windsor Castle.The decision to let people know that they received the vaccine was made by the Queen to prevent further discussion. Usually, the royals’ medical matters remain strictly private.
