Boris Johnson Loudly Booed by Brits Upon Entering St. Paul’s for Jubilee Service

The Prime Minister and his wife Carrie Johnson were booed and jeered by the crowd outside St Paul’s Cathedral as they arrived for the service of thanksgiving for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

According to BBC presenter Jane Hill, the Prime Minister was the “only VIP guest” who received such a hostile reception.

Speaking outside the Cathedral, Ms Hill said: “There is booing in the crowd there.

“Really, there is quite a lot of booing actually. A substantial amount. “

Ms Hill added: “That was quite a moment.

“We definitely haven’t heard that for any other VIP guest.”

During an awkward 15-second walk up the stairs where senior royals, signatories and politicians were marking the second day of celebrations to honour the Queen’s 70-year reign, Johnson appeared unfazed as he smiled and nodded.

Dozens of Tory MPs have questioned his leadership or called for his resignation in the aftermath of a damning report into Partygate, which revealed that Downing Street parties lasted until 4 a.m. with vomiting and wine spilled up walls.

More than 120 people were arrested as a result of the gatherings, and while Johnson has apologised, he has maintained that he thought he was attending work events and that it was critical to maintain staff morale throughout the pandemic.

Earlier, the leader of the Grassroots Conservatives organisation, which represents ordinary Tory members, urged Johnson to resign.

Former Prime Ministers Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Theresa May were all also in attendance for the service.

Serving cabinet ministers Sajid Javid, Liz Truss and Priti Patel also took seats at St Paul’s.

Nicola Sturgeon, the first minister of Scotland, and Sir Keir Starmer, the leader of the Labour Party, also arrived.

The Queen will not attend the service this morning due to “discomfort” caused by Thursday’s celebrations.

Members of the Royal Family were greeted warmly by the crowd, with William and Kate receiving the loudest applause.

As they walked up the steps to the cathedral, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, were applauded.
