The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are “aware” they have been booed by members of the British public on a number of previous appearances made after they stepped down as full-time working members of the Firm, royal commentator Bronte Coy claimed. And, as they reportedly discuss with officials their possible attendance at the Coronation of Prince Harry‘s father, the pair will keep the possibility of being booed in the forefront of their minds, the expert claimed.
Appearing on Sky News Australia’s The Royal Report, Ms Coy said: “I do think that Meghan and Harry are aware that on a number of occasions, they have been booed in Britain, and this was before the docuseries and Spare, and so the optics of that are going to be really tricky.
“And that, I think, will be playing in their minds a lot in their negotiations that are going on with the Palace before they confirm their RSVP, is what does it look like when they go, what happens, how people are going to respond to them, what position are they going to be put in if they are interfacing with the public.”
The Sussexes were booed by some members of the British public in June last year, both when they arrived at and later left St Paul’s Cathedral to attend the service of thanksgiving for the Queen’s reign held during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Prince Harry and Meghan confirmed they received their invites to the Coronation in late February, but are yet to publicly say whether they will travel across the Atlantic to be at Westminster Abbey on May 6.
