Queen Margrethe of Denmark has become the first royal to receive the Covid-19 vaccine.
According to a brief statement issued by the Royal Court, the 80-year-old received her first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine on New Year’s Day.
The statement also confirmed that the monarch would receive the second dose in around three weeks’ time.
The statement from the Danish royal house read: ‘Her Majesty the Queen was vaccinated today against COVID-19. The Queen will be re-vaccinated in about three weeks’ time.’
Margrethe II is the first European sovereign to officially announce the news of her vaccination.
Meanwhile, Buckingham Palace is yet to reveal if Her Majesty or any other royal at the palace have been given the Covid vaccine, insisting that it’s a ‘private’ matter.
