The Duchess of Cambridge has received her first dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
Kate Middleton got her first blow at London’s Science Museum yesterday (Friday 29 May), just days after husband Prince William received his.
She is the youngest high-ranking queen to receive the vaccine, after the Queen and the Prince of Wales.
In a message on Twitter, the 39-year-old thanked everyone who helped launch the vaccine across the country.
A message on the Kensington Palace Twitter account reads: “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 – thank you for everything you are doing.”
It was accompanied by a picture of the masked Duchess in a short-sleeved top receiving the injection.
According to the latest government statistics, around 70% of the adult population have now received their first dose.
