Kate Middleton Receives First COVID-19 Vaccine Dose: 'Hugely Grateful'


Kate Middleton received her first COVID-19 vaccine dose on Friday and expressed her "huge gratitude" to everyone involved in making it possible.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, received the injection at London's Science Museum after returning from a tour of Scotland with Prince William. Kate, who was dressed in blue jeans and a short-sleeved white top, posted a photo of herself sitting on a chair with the needle in her arm.

“Yesterday I received my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at London’s Science Museum,” she wrote on Instagram, “and I’m enormously grateful to everyone involved in the rollout — thank you for everything you do.”

This post was shared by Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (@dukeandduchessofcambridge) on Instagram.

William, 38, received his first dose on May 18 at the Science Museum, also from National Health Service personnel.

Some followers commented on Kate's Instagram post, saying they would have expected the royal to be vaccinated already. "Only now the first dose? Goodness!" one follower exclaimed.

William contracted COVID-19 more than a year ago but kept it a secret at the time because he didn't want to "worry" anyone; the disease reportedly hit him "pretty hard" and he became ill at his country home in Norfolk.

Last year, around the same time, Prince Charles contracted COVID-19.

The royals didn't say which vaccine they got.

The vaccinations for Charles, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, and Queen Elizabeth have all been completed.
