Kate Middleton revealed yesterday, via Instagram, that she received her COVID-19 vaccination on Friday.

The Duchess of Cambridge shared the photo of her receiving the COVID-19 injection via the couples Instagram yesterday. 

She added: "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."

With her hair in loose waves, and dressed casually in blue jeans and a short-sleeved cream top, Kate looked pleased to be receiving her vaccination - a week after her husband, Prince William, received his.

Many royal fans congratulated Kate for having her vaccine, with some calling her a role model. A nurse also thanked her for sharing the picture.

Prince William had a similar reaction with fans when he posted a picture getting his vaccine last week, while some also commented on his physique. 

The snap shared on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s official Instagram and Twitter accounts shows William with his jumper sleeve rolled up to his shoulder as the nurse gives him the vaccine shot.

While thousands of followers have been showing their support for the Duke of Cambridge’s important actions, this wasn’t the only thing that has captured people’s attention. Many fans couldn’t help noticing another detail in the picture—Prince William’s muscular arm. 

"Oh, Prince William works out" one commented, whilst someone else agreed, writing, "Wow he got guns" and another posted, "Congratulations! Also....wow, someone is working out!"

"Congratulations Your Buffness... I mean, Your Highness", a fellow royal fan excitedly declared.
