The Duke of Cambridge, 38, was pictured getting his vaccine by NHS staff at London’s Science Museum this week. And Prince Frederik of Denmark, 52, also posted his own picture on his Instagram page being inoculated in North Copenhagen. Frederick, who is the heir to the Danish throne, also thanked the health staff following his jab.
The prince, who lives at Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen with his wife Princess Mary, 49, and their four children, said: “Today I got my first jab.
“Thank you to all of you who help us on our way to a normal everyday life again.”
Denmark has been badly affected by the pandemic over the last year and is currently averaging 918 new Covid cases per day.
However, the Scandinavian country is set to reopen almost fully tomorrow following a lockdown earlier this year, the FT has reported.
Meanwhile, William received his jab on the same week the UK also relaxed more lockdown rules.
His official social media account posted: “On Tuesday I received my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
“To all those working on the vaccine rollout – thank you for everything you’ve done and continue to do.”
William’s grandmother, The Queen, and his late grandfather, Prince Philip, also received their first jabs in January.
His father, Prince Charles, 72, also received his first dose in February, along with his wife Camilla, 73.
However, it is not know if William’s wife Kate, 39, has received her first vaccination.
William suffered from Covid in April 2020, shortly after Charles tested also positive on March 26.
The Duke did not publicly confirm that he had the virus.

But he reportedly told someone at an engagement: “There were important things going on and I didn’t want to worry anyone.”
He was believed to be treated by palace doctors and also self-isolated at the family home Anmer Hall, in Norfolk.
Earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge urged people to get the Covid vaccine as they said it is “really important”.
During a recent video call, they spoke to Shivali Modha, who has type 2 diabetes, and Fiona Doyle, who has severe asthma.
Prince William told Ms Modha: “Catherine and I are not medical experts by any means but if it’s any consolation, we can wholeheartedly support having vaccinations. It’s really, really important.
“We’ve spoken to a lot of people about it and the uptake has been amazing so far. We’ve got to keep it going so the younger generations also feel that it’s really important for them to have it.
“So it’s great that, Shivali, you’re taking the time to work it out and come to the conclusion that ‘I need to do this,’ because social media is awash sometimes with lots of rumours and misinformation, so we have to be a bit careful who we believe and where we get our information from.
“Especially for those who are clinically vulnerable as well, it’s so important that those vaccinations are done, so good luck.”
