Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made their first public appearance in London and were greeted with a mix of boos and cheers as they left St Paul’s Cathedral after the Platinum Jubilee church service on Friday.

Royal family supporters remain at odds with the couple who chose to leave the family in 2020, with rowdies drowning out the excitement outside the church.

“At this time, it seems unlikely that Harry and Meghan and William and Kate will meet separately at Jubilee celebrations,” a source said. “There is certainly nothing in the log at the moment.”

The Platinum Jubilee is a four-day celebration that marks the 70th anniversary of a monarch on the throne. The 96-year-old Queen decided not to attend the church service after the Thursday celebrations that kicked off her birthday, per BNC News.

“Given the travel and activity required to participate in [Friday’s] National Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral, Her Majesty with great reluctance has concluded not to attend,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Thursday.

As Harry, 37, and Markle, 40, made their way into the cathedral, they were met with looks of scorn and disdain as they made their way to their seats.

Despite the animosity, the couple were all smiles, holding hands.

During the service, they were pictured laughing with some of the younger royals.

Following tradition, after the service, the Royal Family then attends the Lord Mayor’s reception at the Guildhall. Markle and Harry did not attend lunch or the Trooping the Color parade on Thursday, according to People.

Additionally, the couple weren’t invited to the Buckingham Palace balcony photoshoot, due to ongoing tension with their family outing, dubbed “Megxit.”
