Footage of the incident was posted online by Chris Ship, Royal editor at ITV News, who said the response from the hundreds of people in the crowd to Ms Sturgeon took him “by surprise”.

It showed the SNP chief heckled as she shook hands with Fife Lord Provost and ex-footballer Jim Leishman and then smiled and waved for the cameras.

Later, Ms Sturgeon and Mr Leishman were among the party greeting King Charles and the Queen Consort as the new monarch was met with cheers by locals and he shook hands with well-wishers.

It’s his first official engagement since the period of Royal mourning for the death of the Queen ended.

Mr Ship tweeted: “If you needed a reminder of how decisive [sic] Scottish politics can be, @NicolaSturgeon was mostly booed (plus some cheers) by the crowd waiting for King Charles and Camilla to arrive.

“This is a crowd waiting for a monarch to turn up but took me by surprise…”

He later clarified he’d meant to say “divisive”.

In the ceremony in Dunfermline city chambers, the King said he was “delighted” the town would become a city and said he hoped people would feel a “real sense of pride in this new chapter”.
