The post included a photograph of the Duke in the process of being vaccinated. Prince William revealed that he had received his initial vaccine on Tuesday (18 May) earlier this week.
The Duke thanked healthcare staff and everyone who was working hard to ensure the nation could get vaccinated, saying, ”to all those working on the vaccine rollout - thank you for everything you’ve done and continue to do."
Vaccinations are offered according to priority and age range. According to the NHS, "people who will turn 36 before 1 July 2021" are currently able to receive a vaccination. Prince William is 38 years old.
Members of the public expressed their good wishes to the Duke, saying, “stay healthy” and “Godspeed your highness.”
Some remarked that Prince William appeared to be in good shape, saying, “excellent arms sir” and “those arms! Stay well William and the Cambridges.”
Others congratulated the Duke on the positive example he was setting by sharing his experience of the vaccination.
“Setting such a good example and strong message to everyone in the UK. Thank you,” said one commenter, while another added, “Thank you for being a role model for the important vaccination campaign.”
There has been no update yet on the Duchess of Cambridge’s vaccinations, but elsewhere this week Kate has been busy supporting an interactive Alice and Wonderland exhibition at the V&A museum in London.
