The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh have received their Covid-19 vaccinations.
In an unusual move, Buckingham Palace, rarely commenting on the private health issues of the monarch and duke, announced that the 94-year-old head of state and her wife had received the shot.
It is understood that the Queen decided to make the information public to avoid inaccuracies and further speculation.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh received Covid-19 vaccinations today.”
A royal source confirmed the injections were given by a royal family doctor at Windsor Castle.
The Queen and Philip stayed in lockdown in England to take shelter at their Windsor Castle home after deciding to have a quiet Christmas at their Berkshire residence and forego the traditional royal family gathering at Sandringham.
