Britain's love of สล็อต queuing helped the UK coronavirus vaccine rollout, the health secretary has said, as jabs were given "according to need, not ability to pay".
Matt Hancock said there had been no "special treatment, no queue-jumping" for politicians, footballers, or royalty, which helped show the system was "fair".
He also confirmed that three in four UK adults have now had their first jab.
But concerns remain over rising cases.
Reflecting on the UK's vaccine rollout at a conference in Oxford, the health secretary said it had been important for the public to know others couldn't "buy their way up the queue".
"Prince William, our future king, waited in that same line for his jab a couple of weeks after me - no special treatment, no queue-jumping," he said.
Mr Hancock also said the government was in talks with AstraZeneca to secure a future version of its jab adapted to better tackle the Beta variant first identified in South Africa.
Any altered vaccine would need to be approved by the medicines regulator, AstraZeneca said.
