Fact Check: Did Queen Of England Thank PM Modi For Vaccines?
A post showing Queen Elizabeth II thanking Prime Minister Narendra Modi for COVID-19 vaccine displayed at London’s famous Piccadilly Circus has gone viral.
The screen shows an image of the Queen with the message, “Thank you PM Modi for sending us COVID-19 vaccines. You are a good boy.” The post carries a message in Hindi saying PM Modi has made India proud again.
AstraZeneca vaccines made in India were, in fact, supplied to the UK on March 5. A total of 10 million doses will be supplied from the Serum Institute of India.
The Queen, however, is yet to thank PM Modi for the vaccines. The photograph is morphed.
The original display has a message from the Queen which read: “We will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again.”
This message was displayed at Piccadilly Circus in April 2020.
