Prince William announced earlier today (Thursday 20 May) that he'd received his first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, and many people were taken aback by his royal gun show.
But while the Duke of Cambridge's surprisingly sizable limb drew praise, others questioned his choice of outfit.
"Could he not have worn a string vest, allowing us all to have a good old ogle at his guns without ravaging that poor long-sleeved sweater?" the public asked.
All I keep thinking about is how stretchy his sleeve will be now. Ruined his jumper. Kate will be raging. #PrinceWilliam #thursdaymorning #ThursdayThoughts #COVID19 #vaccine pic.twitter.com/KI0QbgRkn3

1. Prince William has much nicer arms than I'd have guessed. 2. Why would you wear a long sleeve sweater to this? pic.twitter.com/0NJe1f4gx7

It's a fair point, but I guess it's no skin off his nose. Probably has a wardrobe in his castle containing 365 cashmere sweaters.
The 38-year-old is one of around 37 million people in the UK who have received a first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, which is more than 70 percent of adults in the country.
A total of around 58 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines have been administered in the UK since 8 December.
The government aims to have offered all adults a first dose by the end of July, and is confident it is on track to hit this target.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: "Vaccines are turning the tide against this pandemic and I'm incredibly proud the UK has one of the highest uptake rates in the world, with 90 percent of people saying that they have had or will have the jab.
"Strong evidence shows the vaccines protect you and your loved ones from serious illness and they also reduce transmission, which is why we've introduced additional surge measures in the areas with rising cases of the variant first identified in India.
"Thank you to everybody who has come forward so far - we can beat this virus together if we all play our part and get the jab as soon as we're eligible."
