The Prime Minister was booed at the Platinum Jubilee celebrations

As the couple walked up the steps to the cathedral, they received boos from the public.
“Definitely heard some boos like Boris Johnson and wife Carrie have arrived,” a viewer of the event said on Twitter.
“Maybe there is hope for the country after all,” tweeted another.
This is believed to be the first time a prime minister has been booed by the public at a royal event.
Shortly thereafter, Mr. Johnson managed to survive a vote of confidence. However, the result was not surprising as 41% of MPs voted against it.
