Kate Middleton, Prince William will receive the vaccine on TV to encourage the rest of the UK to follow suit

Kate Middleton and Prince William are taking the mantle of getting the COVID-19 vaccine forward, after Queen Elizabeth and Prince William got theirs earlier this month.

As per reports, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge might get vaccinated on television, in order to encourage the rest of the UK to follow suit.

Royal biographers Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, while speaking on ABC podcast the Heirpod, revealed, "It will be really interesting to see, as this sort of trickles down to other groups, will we hear from Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall when they have their vaccination?" Scobie said.

"We could possibly have the cameras with the Cambridges much later in the year when younger people have access to the vaccine," he continued. "It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Last month, an insider told the Guardian how National Health Service in England is looking for famous personalities to get vaccinated on camera.

"NHS England are looking for famous faces, people who are known and loved. It could be celebrities who are very sensible and have done sensible stuff during the pandemic," the source revealed.
