Boris Johnson, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle booed at Queen's Platinum Jubilee reception

There has been a frosty reception at the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations for some, as Boris Johnson, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were greeted with a chorus of boos as they arrived at the Jubilee thanksgiving service in London.

During an awkward walk up the stairs of the St Paul's Cathedral the Prime Minister and his wife, Carrie, had a humiliating encounter with a crowd of onlookers as he faces the growing threat of a confidence vote over his COVID-19 lockdown parties.

While there was some cheering for Johnson, they were mostly drowned by boos and jeers, with one person reportedly yelling "f*** off Boris".

But Johnson was not the only one receiving a cold reception. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were met with mixed reactions as the Jubilee crowd cheered and booed the couple.

It comes as a source close to the Royals said Prince William and Harry were mending their relationship a week before the Jubilee celebrations, following their rift after Harry and Meghan abruptly left the Royals in 2020. 

However, nothing could dampen Queen Elizabeth's smile as she waved to tens of thousands of royal supporters cheering her on outside the Buckingham Palace as she became the first British monarch to celebrate 70 years on the throne. 

"Thank you to everyone who has been involved in convening communities, families, neighbours and friends to mark my Platinum Jubilee, in the United Kingdom and across the Commonwealth," the Queen said in a statement as the festivities got underway.

"I continue to be inspired by the goodwill shown to me."
