It was not stated if Charles and Camilla were vaccinated together, nor which version of the vaccine they were given. It is thought they received it from a royal doctor at their home in Wiltshire where they have been in isolation during the country’s third official lockdown period.
Charles contracted coronavirus last year and he said he would ‘absolutely’ get the Covid-19 vaccine when it was offered to him.
His son Prince William also reportedly caught Covid last year but that has not been officially confirmed.
On Monday Charles launched his new Terra Carta initiative and told CNN that vaccination is key to ending the pandemic. He said, “I think vaccination is critical to ensure we have a way out of this, otherwise it is going to be very difficult.”
