Yesterday The Duke of Cambridge visited the University of Oxford’s Oxford Vaccine Group, to learn more about their work to establish a viable vaccine against COVID-19.
Oxford researchers have developed a vaccine in order to begin protecting people against the coronavirus as soon as possible and clinical trials are now underway to establish whether the vaccine generates immunity in humans.
The Duke was shown around the manufacturing laboratory where the vaccine has been produced and was also given a tour of the laboratory where samples from the clinical trial are being examined by researchers, before meeting individuals who are part of the trial.
The Duke also joined a video call with members of the AstraZeneca-Oxford partnership to hear how the partnership has placed British science and innovation at the heart of the global response to the pandemic. Watch the full discussion on the Royal Family’s YouTube channel (link in bio)

Via @clarencehouse “As we honour the legacy of the Windrush generation, and the invaluable contribution of Black people in Britain, I dearly hope that we can continue to listen to each other’s stories and to learn from one another. The diversity of our society is its greatest strength and gives us so much to celebrate.” Today marks the anniversary of the arrival of HMT Empire Windrush in 1948, carrying hundreds of people from the Caribbean who had been invited to help rebuild Britain in the wake of the Second World War.
#WindrushDay is an annual celebration of Britain’s Caribbean community and their contribution to life in the UK. In a message to mark the day, The Prince of Wales reflects on his visit to @BCAheritage when Their Royal Highnesses viewed an exhibition on the history of African and Caribbean communities in Britain and met veterans from the Western Indian Association of Service Personnel.
