The Queen and Prince Philip get Covid vaccines


The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh have received Covid-19 vaccinations Buckingham Palace has reported this afternoon.

The royal source said the vaccinations were administered on Saturday by a household doctor at Windsor Castle.

The Queen, 94, and Prince Philip, 99, are among around 1.5 million people in the UK to have now had at least one dose of a Covid vaccine so far. It is not currently known which vaccine the Queen and Prince Philip have received.

The royal couple have been spending the lockdown at Windsor Castle after a quiet Christmas at their Berkshire residence instead of the traditional royal family gathering at Sandringham.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said the aim is to vaccinate 15 million people in the UK by mid-February, including care home residents and staff, frontline NHS staff, everyone over 70 and those who have been categorised as clinically extremely vulnerable.
