Can you spot the Queen's hidden tribute to Prince Philip?

Britain's Queen Elizabeth speaks via video call to health leaders delivering the Covid-19 vaccine across England Scotland Wales and Northern Ireland London Britain

Buckingham Palace has released a statement saying that Prince Philip has responded well to his infection treatment.

"As far as I can make out it was quite harmless".

The Queen spoke with the four Senior Responsible Officers (SROs) overseeing the delivery of the vaccine in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to hear about the collaborative effort which has led to more than 18 million people across the United Kingdom getting their first dose of a vaccine.

Britain's vaccines minister said this week that between 11% and 15% of the public were hesitant about getting the shot, particularly among ethnic minority groups, amid conspiracy theories around the inoculations.

The monarch wore the glittering accessory on a video call with health leaders from Windsor Castle in which she made a historic intervention in the coronavirus vaccination drive, suggesting it is selfish not to have the jab.

"I think the other thing is, that it is obviously hard for people if they've never had a vaccine.but they ought to think about other people rather than themselves".

This is not the first time the monarch has championed a new vaccine.

The monarch and her 99-year-old husband Prince Philip, who is now in hospital receiving treatment for a non-Covid infection, received their vaccines from a household doctor at the queen's Windsor Castle residence, with their age putting them in the priority group for England's coronavirus vaccine rollout.

"It is remarkable how quickly the whole thing has been done and so many people have had the vaccine". Prince William previously visited vaccination center close to his country home at King's Lynn, Norfolk.

Last week, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of of Cornwall met volunteers who are undertaking clinical trials for the COVID-19 vaccinations at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

Supreme Court Will Not Halt Trump Tax Record Turnover
Tax records will only be one tool prosecutors will use to examine whether any of those statements amounted to fraud. The Supreme Court in July rejected those arguments but said Trump could raise other subpoena objections.

The Duke of Cambridge, who like his father Charles contracted Covid, said on Monday he would be at the "front of the queue" for a vaccine to prove it is OK - but will "wait my turn".

She spoke about the coronavirus as being "a bit like a plague" and that "it is a unusual battle that everybody is fighting".

"Because it's not only here that we've got the virus but it's everywhere".

Only the keenest royal watcher would have noted the Queens show of solidarity - the Diamond Clematis brooch she wore on her coral ensemble.

The Queen urged members of the public to think about the health of others if they had doubts or hesitations about being vaccinated.

"Having lived in the war, it's really much like that - when everybody had the same idea".

An NHS vaccine chief said it was an "incredibly important vote of confidence" in the programme.

He said: "I think that gets to all of us, and then, you can only watch the clock so many times and the walls are only so interesting".

"And Her Majesty offering her view on that is a huge boost to our confidence and I hope to confidence more broadly in the programme".
