Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey was reportedly booed at the British National Television Awards presentation, causing some minor commotion.
A number of notable faces made appearances at the event, which took place on Thursday night, to present awards to the winners.
Sir Trevor McDonald introduced a movie showing some of the most memorable moments from the previous 12 months during one segment.
Booing could be heard from the audience as a clip of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey appeared on the screen.
It was also discovered that spectators at home were unable to hear the booing from their televisions. According to a person who spoke with MailOnline
‘Meghan and Harry were shown on screen during a montage of TV moments from the last twelve months.
‘Immediately, there was audible booing throughout the arena. It was as though they were pantomime villains.’
A second source, a celebrity who did not want to be identified, said that there were some “embarrassed faces” in the audience.
The celebrity said;
‘When the clip came up of Meghan there were boos from the audience.
‘Some shouted out and there was laughing. There were a few embarrassed faces but sadly Meghan was obviously not too popular on the night
Snippets from The Crown and Bridgerton were among the other clips displayed. Piers Morgan, the former anchor of Good Morning Britain, was also booed by the audience as he was up for the best presenter award.
Throughout the night, many people resorted to social media to express their feelings on the booing.
In their conversation with Oprah, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex discussed racism in the British monarchy, as well as feeling suicidal.
