British Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip will receive a coronavirus vaccine within weeks, according to media reports.
Queen, 94 and Prince Philip 99 are expected to accept the offer of a vaccine on the advice of their doctors.
According to reports, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, who are currently staying at their Windsor Castle, are the first group identified for the vaccination.
However, the Daily Mail quoting higher sources, it was reported that the Kings will not receive preferential treatment, but rather ‘stay in line’ during the first wave of injections reserved for over-80s and care home residents.
Meanwhile, the Queen will be celebrating Christmas at Windsor Castle for the first time in 32 years.
Buckingham Palace confirmed last week that the Queen had decided to stay at Windsor Castle for Christmas amid the coronavirus pandemic.
A Palace spokeswoman said in a statement, “” Having considered all the appropriate advice, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have decided that they will spend Christmas quietly in Windsor this year. “
The spokesman further said “Like everyone they hope things will return to normal in 2021.”
This will be the first time in 32 years for the Queen to skip celebrations in Sandringham and to celebrate at Windsor Castle.
Queen has been staying at Windsor castle since March, while Prince Philip has been there since retiring from public duties in 2017.
