The Duchess of Cambridge received her first COVID-19 vaccine following her husband’s footsteps stabbed earlier this month.
A photo of Kate injected on Friday was posted to her Twitter account at Kensington Palace on Saturday afternoon.
In the attached message, the Duchess said, “Yesterday I received my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at the Science Museum in London.
“I am very grateful to everyone involved in the rollout. I am grateful to everything you are doing.”
39-year-old Kate in a face mask, white vest top and jeans was photographed with a jab on her left arm.
In response to a tweet from Kensington Palace, Health Secretary Matt Hancock, who was also jabed at the Science Museum, said, “In the last two weeks, more than half of the total population in their thirties has been vaccinated.
“The Duchess of Cambridge was happy to get a jab at the Science Museum.”
This happened after the Duke of Cambridge received the first jab from NHS staff at the Science Museum earlier this month.
William had previously endorsed the vaccine and praised the “monumental” success of the Covid-19 jab program.
The Duke was infected with COVID-19 last spring and was able to continue to communicate online with the phone while being treated by a royal doctor, but reportedly was “quite violent” by the virus. It was attacked and at some stage it became difficult to breathe.
The Queen and Prince of Wales are one of the other members of the royal family to be vaccinated as the jab deployment reaches millions of people across the country.
In the UK, more than 32 million people are first vaccinated, which is almost three-quarters of the adult population, and more than 20 million are both vaccinated.
In England and Scotland, 30-year-olds are encouraged to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.
The Covid-19 vaccination program in Northern Ireland is open to everyone over the age of 18, but in Wales, invitations are open to everyone over the age of 18 as well.
