The Royal Danish Court released a statement confirming the news that Margarethe II had been vaccinated on New Year’s Day. The royal will take a second dose of the jab in around three weeks.
The statement from the Royal Court read: “Her Majesty the Queen was vaccinated today against Covid-19.
“The Queen will be re-vaccinated in about three weeks' time.”
Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip have not yet confirmed whether they have taken the vaccine.
