Prince William was the latest royal family member to receive his COVID vaccine last week, and the photo that's subsequently been shared on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Instagram account has got everyone talking ... but not necessarily for the reasons you might think.

At 38 years of age, the future king is now eligible for his vaccine, so earlier last week he went to get it. As many other members of the royal family — and various famous faces in politics — have done, the Prince allowed a photograph to be taken of the moment he got the jab.

Sharing it on Instagram, the caption — which appears to have been written personally by William — read: "On Tuesday I received my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. To all those working on the vaccine rollout — thank you for everything you’ve done and continue to do." And while the message of the post was undoubtedly important, it was actually Prince William's right arm that took center stage.

The royal can be seen in the image with a rolled up shirt and jumper sleeve, exposing his arm underneath. Considering male royals usually stick to a pretty standard uniform of suits or a smart casual shirt/trousers combo for their public outings, a bare arm isn't something we've ever really seen from the Prince before. And wow, did people have something to say about it

Noting the particularly ... sculpted nature of William's biceps, the complimentary comments quickly rolled in, along with the jokes about being welcomed "to the gun show."

"Look at them guns," wrote one royal fan along with the flame emoji, while another added: "I'm blushing." The theme continued in further comments — in fact, nearly all the comments referenced the Prince's muscles. "Oh, Prince William works out," added one follower. "Those biceps though ..." said someone else.

Alright, alright, we get the message. If anyone's blushing, it's probably Prince William right now, wondering how to avert the attention from his physique to the main issue at hand, which is how important it is that we all get vaccines.

Prince William is one of the last key adult members of the British royal family to have received his vaccine, being in his thirties. It's not yet known if his 39-year-old wife, Kate Middleton — who is also within the eligible age bracket now — has had her jab yet, but no doubt if she hasn't then it won't be long before she does.
