The Duchess of Cambridge has received her first dose of the coronavirus vaccine. 

The Kensington Royal Twitter account on Saturday shared a new photo of Kate Middleton during her visit to London’s Science Museum. 

“Yesterday I received my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at London’s Science Museum,” Middleton, 39, wrote. “I’m hugely grateful to everyone who is playing a part in the rollout – thank you for everything you are doing.”

She did not specify which vaccine she received among the three available in the UK. Coronavirus vaccines from Pfizer, Moderna, and AstraZeneca have been used in the country and the Johnson & Johnson single-dose coronavirus vaccine was approved by a regulator for use on May 28. 

Middleton, who has three children, received her dose one week after her husband, Prince William, sat down for the jab. The Duke of Cambridge tested positive for COVID-19 in April 2020. 

Representatives for Prince William and Kate Middleton did not immediately return Insider’s request for comment.

Other members of the royal family have also received the coronavirus vaccine

In January, Queen Elizabeth and her late husband, Prince Philip, were vaccinated at Windsor Castle. 

William applauded his grandparents for getting vaccinated, saying he was “very proud” of them. 

Prince Charles and Camilla were vaccinated in February after the Prince of Wales tested positive in March 2020. Camilla tested negative. 

It’s unclear if Prince Harry or Meghan Markle have been vaccinated, but the couple earlier this month served as co-chairs at “Vax Live,” a concert that encouraged people to get vaccinated.

“Kindly have it after three weeks. Nothing is happening to these properties. We are before your lordships. It (the project) is a very long plan and we have not reached anywhere near it,” submitted Solicitor General Tushar Mehta before the bench of Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva.

Complete paralysis of administration: Delhi HC on dengue

The Delhi High Court Wednesday took a grim view of the civic situation in Delhi, particularly against the backdrop of a surge in dengue cases, and said that there was a complete paralysis of administration. It rapped the civic bodies for failing to tackle the dengue situation this season and questioned whether responsibility has been fixed for the doubling of cases this year.

Delhi: Some have second thoughts about sending kids to school

Delhi schools are seeing huge variations in turnout among the primary and middle school children after reopening, with some schools also seeing a significant difference in the number of parents who had initially given their consent for offline classes and the actual turnout.

Schools had opened for these students, for the first time since the onset of the pandemic, on November 1 but had to close after two weeks due to pollution. They were allowed to reopen for all classes on Monday, while elsewhere, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation announced Tuesday that schools in the city would defer reopening for classes I to VII from December 1 to December 15 as a cautionary measure against emergence of the Omicron variant.
