The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were given their COVID-19 vaccinations on Saturday, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.
The 94-year-old monarch and Prince Philip, 99, were given the coronavirus jab at Windsor Castle, according to the Independent.
The palace, which rarely comments on private health issues regarding the royal family, has also said that the vaccinations were administered by a royal household doctor.
It is understood that the Queen wanted to publicly announce she and Prince Philip had been vaccinated against the virus in order to prevent speculation and misinformation.
A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said: “The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have today received COVID-19 vaccinations.”
It is not known which vaccine the Queen and Prince Philip were given.
The news comes as the third COVID-19 vaccine has been approved for use in the UK. On Friday, it was announced that the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine has been approved, following the Pfizer and Oxford vaccine, which were approved last year.
Prince William is encouraging everyone in Britain to follow the example of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip by having the coronavirus vaccine.
Both royals have received their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine and the Duke’s illness is not related to COVID. A royal source has said it was expected he would remain in hospital into this week and Philip was in good spirits.
