The announcement comes a week after William shared that he received his first photo at the same museum.
Neither the Prince nor the Duchess specified which coronavirus vaccine they had received.
Currently, two-dose inoculations of Pfizer-BioNTech, Oxford-AstraZeneca and Moderna are distributed throughout the UK and the UK health regulator Friday approved Johnson & Johnson’s single injection vaccine for residents aged 18 and over.
William tested positive for COVID-19 last April, around the same time his father, Prince Charles, was infected, although the Duke is said to have kept his diagnosis a secret for fear of alarming the country.
British tabloid The Sun reported last November that William, 38, was “Struggling to breathe” as he was infected and treated by palace medics and quarantined at his estate in Norfolk.
It was not clear at the time if Kate was also infected.
Queen Elizabeth II received his COVID-19 vaccine at Windsor Castle in January alongside her late husband Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
The Queen said in a video call with UK health officials after receiving the vaccine: ‘Once you get a vaccine you feel like you are protected, which I think is very. important, and, as far as I could distinguish, it was quite harmless.
Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, were both vaccinated in February.
