"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," he captioned a photo of himself getting pricked on the official The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge social media accounts.

William — who contracted the disease last year — got injected by NHS staff at London's Science Museum.

A third user added, "the guns tho."

Meanwhile, others praised the royal for not cutting the line due to his status. One person said, "Great to see the Royals have waited their turn as I’m sure they could have insisted to have it earlier," while another noted, "So glad it’s being put out to the public, William went to visit the labs where the vaccines were being made all those months ago and now he receives one."

As OK! previously reported, William and his wife, Kate Middleton, "both decided to wait in line like everyone else in the country," a source said. 

"You could easily make the case that the future King and Queen are both essential workers, however, they are not going to jump ahead of everyone else in their age group," the insider added.

In November 2020, The Sun reported that William and his father, Prince Charles, both contracted COVID-19. William was hit "pretty hard by the virus ... it really knocked him for six," a source told the outlet.

Meanwhile, Charles, 72, "got away with it quite lightly."

William never publicly spoke about getting sick because he didn't want to alarm the public at the time.

Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall received their COVID-19 vaccines in addition to Queen Elizabeth

"It was very quick, and I've had lots of letters from people who have been surprised by how easy it was to get the vaccine. And the jab — it didn't hurt at all," the 95-year-old said earlier this year.
