The monarch, 94, and the Duke of Edinburgh, 99, received their first doses of the vaccine in January, the BBC reported.
In a video call with health leaders delivering the Covid vaccine across the UK, the Queen was asked about her experience of having the jab.
She smiled as she replied: “Well, as far as I can make out it was quite harmless. It was very quick, and I’ve had lots of letters from people who have been very surprised by how easy it was to get the vaccine.”
She added: “It didn’t hurt at all.”
The monarch said she understood getting a jab could be a “difficult” experience for some people but urged everyone to “think about other people rather than themselves”.
