Corbyn makes statement on Meghan and Harry after Labour activists boo journalists asking questions about them

Labour activists booed journalists who asked Jeremy Corbyn for his reaction to the news that Prince Harry and his actress girlfriend Meghan Markle are to wed.

The UK Labour leader was asked by the media about the engagement announcement after he gave a speech in Glasgow.

Although party members booed the question, Mr Corbyn sent his congratulations to the couple.

He said: “I wish them well, I hope they have a great time and great fun together, and having met Harry a couple of times I'm sure they're going to have great deal of fun.”

Mr Corbyn added: “I really do admire the way that Harry and his brother have drawn attention to mental health conditions all across the country.

“I wish him well, thank him for what he has done on mental health, hope they have a great life together.”
