Each royals are on the prime of Britain’s precedence checklist as a result of they’re over 80. Buckingham Palace didn’t specify which vaccine they obtained — Oxford AstraZeneca or Pfizer-BioNTech.

The announcement stunned Brits as a result of aides had described — repeatedly — the couple’s choice about when to be vaccinated as a “non-public matter,” the Solar reported.
