Prince Philip back on the front pages of British newspapers | Royals

While newspapers chose Saturday as a major tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh who passed away on Friday, Sunday is mainly about reactions to his death. The Telegraph placed a large picture of Philip and his son Prince Charles on the cover, apparently accompanied by the first reaction of the British heir to the throne on Saturday. Newspaper headlines “My father was a very special person … I’ll miss him so much.”

The Daily Mail shares the same quote on the front page. However, the magazine chose a photo of Countess Sophie, the wife of Prince Edward, the youngest son of Philip, who visited Elizabeth at Windsor Castle on Saturday. The Times and The Express also gave the lyrics of the sad Charles a prominent place on their front pages.

The Daily Mirror believes that the reunion of brothers Prince William and Harry at their grandfather’s funeral on Saturday is more important. The phrase “Defined in Mourning” is written in large letters on the cover. The two brothers’ relationship has reportedly been strained since Harry’s return to the British royal family and his recent allegations of racism over an unknown relative. Harry flies solo from America to the UK. Megan is advised not to come because she is pregnant.
