London: The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, on Sunday shared that she had received the first jab of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The 39-year old royal took to the official Twitter handle of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and informed her followers that she took the first dose on Saturday (local time).
This comes after her husband Prince William-the Duke of Cambridge received his first dose of COVID-19, a week ago. The UK-wide vaccine rollout was expanded to people in their 30s earlier this month.
"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," Kate tweeted along with a picture of her getting the vaccination shot.
