Charles III booed by members of the Edinburgh crowd when proclaimed as king – VIDEO

2 mins read

The Lord Lyon King of Arms  had just finished reading out the official proclamation of King Charles III when boos began to echo across the Mercat Cross in central Edinburgh. Clamouring erupted among the public as the clerk yelled “God Save the King”, prompting what appear to be male voices to start bellowing against the new king. The protestations were quickly covered up as the national anthem began to be played, with much of the attendees to the proclamation joining in by singing.

Social media users also noticed the protest, with @ElphinstoneJack saying, “Declaration of God Save the King in Edinburgh being booed.” with an accompanying side-eye emoji.

@daverobertson5 said: “Watched some disgusting behavior in Edinburgh after proclamation was read as some folk booed and after the three cheers for king some folk were booing.”

@CraigWhyteReal added: “Quick play trumpets over the boos.”

@LassGhost commented: “Perhaps after this they’ll be rethinking the ridiculous idea of making the new king appear in Scotland with Liz Truss.”

The King will be embarking on a tour of the four nations over the next week, which sparked speculation the Prime Minister would be going with him.
