At the jubilee Mass of Elizabeth II, Boris Johnson booed copiously on his arrival


QUEEN’S JUBILEE – Without the tired queen, but with Harry and Meghanthe British royal family met on Friday 3 June for a religious service celebrating the 70th anniversary of the historic reign of Elizabeth II, on the second day of his platinum jubilee. On this occasion, Prime Minister Boris Johnson made a notable entrance to St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, as you can see it in our video at the top of the article.

Buckingham Palace announced on Thursday night the reluctant absence of the 96-year-old monarch, yet head of the church and a strong believer, due to some “discomfort”. As is often the case, the queen, who has difficulty walking, is represented by her heir Charles. But as expected, the Duke of Sussex, with military medals hanging from his jacket, and the Duchess, in an off-white dress, arrived shortly after noon (Paris time) to applause – and a few boos – on the steps of the cathedral.

Before them, the arrival of the Prime Minister is also far from unnoticed. Holding the hand of his wife Carrie, Boris Johnson was copiously booed by the crowd. His predecessors, former Prime Ministers Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Theresa May, were also present.

The threat of the motion of censure after the “Partygate”

It must be said that the British have not yet digested the recent revelations surrounding the government. In the turmoil after the revelations about the scandal of the Partygatethese parties are sometimes heavily watered during confinements, the Conservative leader could find himself under threat of a motion of censure as soon as the celebrations of the platinum jubilee of Queen Elizabeth.

The Partygate, which exploded several months ago, was overshadowed for a time by the war in Ukraine. But on Wednesday, May 25, the final report of the senior official Sue Gray delivered new embarrassing details about 16 events in or around Downing Street between May 2020 and April 2021.

Boris Johnson had previously admitted to participating in several of them and was even fined £ 50 (€ 60) for non-compliance with the confinement, the first for an incumbent head of government.
