Would they actually do it?

Prince William and Kate Middleton “could receive their COVID vaccine” live on camera, reports claim.

The royal couple is said to be considering the measure in a bid to encourage others to get their jab when the time comes.

The claim comes a week after the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh received their first COVID vaccine.

Why would Prince Williams and Kate Middleton have their vaccines on camera?

The Express reports that author Omid Scobie said on his podcast HeirPod that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would be good candidates to get their jabs done on camera.

We could possibly have the cameras with the Cambridges much later in the year when younger people have access to the vaccine.

“It will be really interesting to see, as this sort of trickles down to other groups,” he said.

“Will we hear from Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall when they have their vaccination?”

What happened to the Queen last week?

If the duke and duchess did decide to receive their jabs live on camera, they would join other high-profile people who have done the same.

Both the Queen and Prince Philip received their vaccines behind closed doors at Windsor Castle.

A spokesperson for the monarch said: “Her Majesty decided that she would let it be known she has had the vaccination.”

In the US, President-elect and Vice President-elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris also received their injections to cameras.
