Prince William Visited a U.K. Vaccination Center on Monday

Prince William just stepped out for his first royal engagement of 2021 today. And it was for a very good cause.

On Monday, the Duke of Cambridge paid a visit to a vaccination center at the King’s Lynn Corn Exchange, which happens to be located close to his family’s country home in Norfolk. According to the Kensington Palace Instagram account, the center is the largest vaccination program in British history and delivers “thousands of vaccines every week.”

During the visit, William met with individuals receiving the vaccine and even sat down to speak with the National Health Service staff and volunteers about their experience battling against COVID-19 in the last year.

Today’s event marks William’s first official in-person appearances of the new year. He, and his wife, Kate Middleton, have continued to participate in virtual engagements from their country home, Anmer Hall, throughout the pandemic.

And we weren’t the only ones happy to see the duke back in action. Followers and fans revealed their excitement in the comments section of the Kensington Palace IG post. One user wrote, “Glad to see our future king back to in-person engagement again,” while another added, “So happy to see him back to public engagements.”

The duke isn’t the only member of his family returning to work recently. Last week, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles attended their first public event of the year at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

Seems like Prince William is following in his father’s footsteps.
