Meghan and Harry would get booed at Platinum Jubilee, bombshell poll suggests

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry would get "booed" if they stepped onto the balcony at the Platinum Jubilee next month, according to a poll.

It comes after Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen will only be accompanied by royal family members “who are currently undertaking official public duties” last week.

The move means the Sussexes will be excluded from the balcony appearance because they stepped down as senior royals when they moved to California.

They confirmed that the pair will still be present at the Jubilee celebrations and said they were “excited and honoured" to attend.

Daily Express Columnist Carole Malone believes the Sussexes wouldn't be welcomed if they appeared on the balcony.

She wrote earlier this month: “Of course, Meghan and Harry will hate the fact they’ve been lumped into the Bad Royals Box with Prince Andrew.

“Because comparisons will be made that all three of them have disgraced the Royal Family, trashed its reputation and hurt people who did nothing to deserve it.

“And it’s a good thing they won't be on the balcony – it might have been the first time ever that a royal has been booed by the crowds.”

Prince William faced boos from thousands of football fans during the FA Cup final between Liverpool and Chelsea at Wembley Stadium on Saturday (May 14).

In response to Ms Malone’s comments, asked readers’ opinions on whether they would boo Meghan and Harry.

In a poll that ran from midday on Saturday, May 7, to 10am this morning (May 16), readers were asked: “Would you boo Meghan and Harry if they appeared on the palace balcony?”

A whopping 40,645 people cast their votes with the vast majority – 87% (35,230 people) – answering “yes”, they would boo Meghan and Harry if they appeared on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

A further 12% (4,822 people) said “no” they would not boo and just 1% (593 people) said they did not know either way.

One reader, username Radiotimes said: “As the Queen steps out I would cheer followed by other senior royals who would also be cheered but as this pair stepped out (if they were going to) I would certainly be tempted to boo.”

Others commented that they would boo Meghan and Harry with username Tommy Boyde writing: “Absolutely!!!!”

Another, username UK_Warrior said: “Got my loud boos ready for the Sussexes.”

Username FannyAnne said: “I definitely would boo them regardless of where they are, in a crowd, amongst royals…. anywhere in fact.”
