Jeremy Kyle: Why Harry and Meghan will be ‘booed and heckled’ at the King’s coronation

TalkTV’s Jeremy Kyle says Harry and Meghan will be booed and heckled if they attend the King’s coronation.

The couple have yet to confirm if they will attend the event on 8 May despite receiving a formal invitation from the King.

William and Harry could be kept apart to avoid a resurgence of their ongoing royal feud but Jeremy says the public’s reaction to Harry and Megan is a bigger problem.

“If they attend, the good old-fashioned boo and hiss fest for them will be happening,” he said.“They apparently want to be front and centre,” said Jeremy. “I think they will come now because their very publicity and brand depends on being here and being part of it.”

Despite the King being “paralysed by fear” the day could focus on Harry and Meghan, Jeremy said the royal brand depends on the couple playing a formal role in the event. 

Royal commentator Emily Andrews said: “I've always said Harry and Meghan will come but we don't know for sure. There's been no communication from them..

“What is extraordinary is that Harry suddenly popped up in London at the High Court this week. It’s fascinating he's not seeing his brother or father while he's here. 

“He chose to come to London and pose for the cameras when his father was starting his first state visit as King. He can't see William and Katherine and the kids are on holiday.”

“They got booed last year at the Platinum Jubilee outside St Paul's. I think there will be boos at the coronation but there are people who very much support them.

“One thing's for sure - Harry and Meghan will be sat a long way away from William and Charles and not in any kind of camera shot.”

TalkTV’s Nicola Thorp said the couple have taken negative press coverage “on the chin”.

“Of course they're going to be booed, by a handful of people. But Boris and Carrie were booed last year at the Platinum Jubilee, and King Charles gets booed wherever he goes.”
