Camilla is ‘very happy’ after Covid-19 jab: Duchess of Cornwall, 73, receives her first coronavirus vaccine… but it’s not known if Prince Charles has also been inoculated

  • The Duchess of Cornwall, 73, has been given her first coronavirus vaccination
  • It is not yet known whether Prince Charles, 72, has had his inoculation too 
  • Likely, though not confirmed, Camilla would have been given the Oxford vaccine

The Duchess of Cornwall has been given her first coronavirus jab.

Camilla, 73, who is currently at her Wiltshire residence, is likely to have received it from a royal doctor at home.

It is not known whether the Prince of Wales, 72, who contracted Covid-19 last year, has received his inoculation too.

Charles has previously confirmed his intention to get vaccinated, but stressed that neither he – nor his wife – would expectany preferential treatment and would wait for their call as part of the over-70s group.

It is likely, although not confirmed, that Camilla would have had the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, as did the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. A friend said she seemed ‘very happy’.

In December, Charles told staff administering the injection that he was ‘way down the list’ to receive it. 

He made the admission as he visited the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in Gloucester to meet frontline health workers.

The royal told staff: ‘I think I’ll have to wait for the AstraZeneca one before it gets to my turn. I’m some way down the list and will have to wait.’

Last month it was revealed that the Queen, 94, and 99-year-old Prince Philip were among the first wave to receive their Covid-19 jabs. 

A royal source said the vaccinations were administered by a household doctor at Windsor Castle.

Buckingham Palace had initially insisted the Queen would not let it be known if and when she had it as it was a ‘private medical matter’.

But it was explained that she had changed her mind in order to prevent ‘speculation’.

 The Government had been keen to make the news public as part of its drive to encourage people to be vaccinated.
