The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall have thanked some of their affiliated military units for their efforts in the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

The Royal couple wrote to units to thank them for their work.

It follows a recent call between Prince Charles and Brigadier Phil Prosser, who is responsible for coordinating the military support in delivering the vaccine across England. 

In a tweet by Clarence House, Prince Charles called personnel involved in the vaccine rollout "an outstanding credit to this country".

The Prince added the UK is "more fortunate than it realises" to have people ready to "step forward and support whatever tasks are required at such a crucial time of need".

Among those thanked were The Rifles – Camilla succeeded Prince Philip as the unit's Colonel-in-Chief in July last year.

Also thanked were the 1 Royal Gurkha Rifles and Welsh Guards who spent the Christmas period coronavirus testing lorry drivers to enable them to cross the English Channel.

The affiliated units also recognised included: 1 Army Air Corps, The Queen's Own Yeomanry, The Royal Regiment of Canada, The Toronto Scottish Regiment and Queen's Own Rifles Canada.

Additionally, Prince Charles and Camilla thanked personnel from HMS Prince of Wales, RAF Leeming and the Royal Naval Medical Service.

Last month, the Duke of Cambridge told Armed Forces personnel supporting the vaccine rollout to keep up the good work.
