Prince William rolls up his sleeves for the vaccine effort: Duke, 38, reveals he has already received his first dose – hours after Matt Hancock urged everyone eligible to step forward because it is ‘now a straight race between jab and the Indian Variant’ if England is to unlock on June 21

Prince William revealed today that he has received his first dose of the coronavirus vaccine from NHS staff at the Science Museum in London. 

The Duke of Cambridge tweeted this morning: ‘On Tuesday I received my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. To all those working on the vaccine rollout – thank you for everything you’ve done and continue to do.’ 

The 38-year-old royal posted a picture of himself wearing a mask with his sleeve rolled up and a needle in his arm as he received the jab at the museum in Kensington, near where he lives with wife Kate and their three children.  

Kensington Palace also did not say which vaccine was given to the second in line to the throne – but he will have been entitled to the Pfizer or AstraZeneca jab, because he is aged under 40.
