Front-page news! The fallout from Oprah Winfrey’s interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is blasted across the front page of every UK newspaper & tabloid.
The headline in the Daily Mirror..
The London Times?
“Palace in turmoil over racism claims.”
The Guardian warns the interview threatens to have
“devastating impact” on the reputation of the monarchy – and has “shaken the Royal Family to its foundations”.
The Sun wonders,
“So who is the Royal Racist?”
And The Daily Mail asks,
What have they done?”
And apparently Buckingham Palace is
Prince Harry stands accused of
“blowing up his family”.
According to the Times, the Queen has refused to sign-off a statement prepared by officials saying she wants,
“more time to consider her response”.
The Express is bummed out,
“So sad it has come to this.”
The Sun makes sure not a word is missed – publishing a full transcript of the two-hour broadcast. The paper says the ex-royal couple appeared
“cruel, self-pitying and unreliable” – but admits the interview “did the job they wanted”.
The Daily Telegraph accuses Harry and Meghan of a
“deliberate attempt to cause most harm” – and suggests the couple’s main complaint “seems to have been the failure to treat them as equals with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge”.
The Telegraph highlights Biden’s praise for Meghan’s courage – and says the Palace is under “intense pressure” to respond to her claims.
And The Metro seems more sympathetic choosing a newly released photograph of Harry cradling his pregnant wife and son for its front page
“Just the four of us now.”
The whole affair has passed by the seemingly oblivious and sarcastic Daily Star.
“Our telly broke last night. Did we miss something?”
Not much. Guess it depends on where you get your news?
