Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were booed during their first official Royal event since leaving the UK for a more liberal life in the States.
On Friday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral in London as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee activities.
While the couple was finally reunited with their Royal family, they were kept away from Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William, and Kate.
After the end of their Royal engagement, Harry and Meghan walked out of the cathedral only to be greeted with a mixed response from the British public.
While some people cheered the couple on, there were many who chose to boo them instead.
According to Kay Burley of Sky News, she could not be sure if the couple faced “more cheers or more jeers.”
“There was a loud reaction from the crowd to the arrival of Harry and Meghan: a mix of boos and cheers,” Richard Palmer, a Royal correspondent, also confirmed.
“Our correspondent outside says what sounded like a mixed reaction had turned into a clear cheer by the time the Sussexes had reached the top of the steps.”
Meanwhile, Rhiannon Mills, a Sky News commentator who was present at the scene, revealed:
“We were debating how many boos, how many cheers but I think also when you compared it to later arrivals there was a mixed reaction to them.
“Despite the fact they have stressed they have a huge amount of respect for the Queen, they are still in contact with her, the Queen has constantly stressed they are much loved members of the family, the assemble crowd clearly had mixed feelings about them being here.”
