Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, have received their first COVID-19 vaccinations.
Coronavirus has changed everything about life as we know it, with people now isolated to their homes in a third lockdown. Not exempt from this are the royal family, with the Mountbatten-Windsors also on lockdown.
The Queen made headlines last month as she was forced to cancel a particularly special Sandringham tradition due to the pandemic, with the monarch currently isolating with Prince Philip in Windsor Castle. And recently, it was revealed that the Queen, 94, and the Duke of Edinburgh, 99, had both received the COVID vaccination.
