During the Royally Obsessed podcast, royal commentators Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito discussed the Queen’s coronavirus vaccine rallying call. Ms Fiorito joked that Queen Elizabeth II “threw shade” at those that have decided not to take the COVID-19 jab.

Ms Fiorito said: “We heard from the Queen last week, the vaccine is obviously on everybody’s mind.

“She spoke about her experience getting the jab, we know she has had the first and second shot.

“She said it was very quick and added this statement: ‘It is rather difficult for people if they have never had a vaccine but they ought to think of other people rather than themselves.’

“That was pretty much shade thrown right?”

Ms Bowie replied: “What a massive slap on the wrist by the monarch to everyone.

“She is like ‘can’t you think of anyone else other than yourself?'”

Ms Fiorito added: “Yes, she does not normally get that personal and she said it so quickly.”

Last week, the monarch opened up on her coronavirus vaccine experience.

The Queen said: “Well, as far as I can make out it was quite harmless.

“It was very quick, and I’ve had lots of letters from people who’ve been very surprised by how easy it was to get the vaccine.

“It didn’t hurt at all.”

Dr Emily Lawson told the Queen: “We hope everyone who is offered the vaccine will take it up, because it is … all of our best chances to protect both the people who take up the vaccine, their families and their communities.”

The monarch said: “Once you’ve had the vaccine you have a feeling of, you know, you’re protected, which is I think very important.

“I think the other thing is, that it is obviously difficult for people if they’ve never had a vaccine.

“But they ought to think about other people rather than themselves.”

She added: “I think it is remarkable how quickly the whole thing has been done and so many people have had the vaccine already.”
