Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip received their COVID vaccines on Saturday.

Queen Elizabeth, 94, and Prince Philip, 99 are among the more than 1.5 million of the UK who got vaccinated with at least one dose of the covid vaccine so far.

Britain is the first country to approve vaccines made by Pfizer/BioNTech and AstraZeneca. On Friday, it also approved the vaccines made by Moderna.

Frontline workers, vulnerable groups, and people over the 80s are on the first line of vaccination.

The Royal couple has spent much of the pandemic in isolation at Windsor because of their old age.

The UK on Saturday reported a record 1,325 deaths which moved the total death toll to more than 80,000.
