Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie were greeted with boos and jeers as they arrived at St Paul's Cathedral

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie were met with boos and jeers from the large crowd of royal fans waiting outside London's St Paul's Cathedral for a Service of Thanksgiving for Queen Elizabeth’s
Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie were greeted with boos as they arrived at St Paul's Cathedral for the National Thanksgiving Service as part of Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee - but another angle as they left paints an even worse picture.

Loud boos were heard as the prime minister and his wife got out of their car and walked up the steps of the cathedral.

It sparked a debate online about whether the boos had been overblown by news organisations, given that some cheers could also be heard.

But a clip posted by Labour MP Karl Turner of Johnson leaving the event left viewers in no doubt of the crowd's distaste for the prime minister.

The MP said he was "booed relentlessly" as he walked down the steps at the end of the service, and the video appears to back that up.

The first 10 seconds of the 15-second clip feature loud, angry boos, and it's only toward the end that a handful of cheering people can be heard.

People shared their two cents on Johnson's sentiments about the Jubilee festivities uniting the country and bringing it together and how it seemed to cause people to band against him.
