It has been relieved that Queen Elizabeth II (age 94) is expected to receive the vaccine within weeks alongside Prince Philip (age 99).

It has been reported that they will not be getting preferential treatment and they will instead ‘wait in line’ during the first wave of injections. However they will get the vaccine from the batch reserved for the over-80s and care home residents, which is of the first batched to get distributed.

The Queen will then reveal that she has been given the vaccine it to encourage more people to take it and fight misinformation on the vaccine.
