Kate Middleton Receives Her First Covid Jab In Secret At London’s Science Museum.
The Duchess of Cambridge has shared to the media a photo of receiving her first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine. A photo of Kate being injected on Friday was posted on the Kensington Palace Twitter account on Saturday afternoon.
In an attached message the duchess said: “Yesterday I received my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at London’s Science Museum. I’m hugely grateful to everyone who is playing a part in the rollout – thank you for everything you are doing.”
It comes after the Duke of Cambridge received his own first jab from NHS staff at the Science Museum earlier this month and has previously spoken in favour of the vaccine and hailed the “monumental” success of the Covid-19 jab programme.
Weeks before, while visiting Dublin with wife Kate, he had poked fun at himself after he questioned a paramedic about whether he thought coverage of the illness was “being a little hyped up” in the media. William, who is left-handed, was pictured receiving his jab in his right arm after rolling up the sleeve of his top.
The duke contracted Covid-19 last spring and was able to carry on with telephone and online engagements while he was treated by royal doctors but was reportedly hit “pretty hard” by the virus and at one stage struggled to breathe.
The Queen and Prince of Wales are among other members of the royal family to be vaccinated as the rollout of jabs reaches millions of people across the country.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
