The Duchess of Cambridge received her first COVID 19 vaccination over the bank holiday weekend at the Science Museum in London.

A photograph of the Duchess in the process of receiving her injection was shared to the Duke and Duchess’ official Instagram account.

In the picture, the Duchess can be seen in a short-sleeved, ribbed white t-shirt and high-waisted jeans with a face mask, as a health worker injects her arm.

Kate explained in the post that she had received her first of the two vaccine doses.

“Yesterday I received my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at London’s Science Museum,” she said.

The Duchess then went onto thank health workers and all those involved in the nationwide vaccination efforts, for their hard work.

“I’m hugely grateful to everyone who is playing a part in the rollout,” Kate wrote. “Thank you for everything you are doing.”

Members of the public praised the Duchess of Cambridge for setting a good example and wished her well.

“As a nurse I say thank you for getting your vaccine,” read one comment while another said, “You are an awesome role model Duchess Of Cambridge.”

Others hoped she would “stay safe” and said, “thank you for sharing your experience.”
