The front pages are dominated by pictures of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after their royal engagement, many taking up their full length. The Sun has a picture of the couple gazing at each other during their appearance outside Kensington Palace, and the headline: “She’s the one.”
A similar picture in the Express has the headline: “The look of love.” Other headlines use quotes from the couple’s television interview. The Telegraph has: “The corgis took to her straightaway.”
The Times says the interview displayed the emotional openness of the Royal Family’s younger generation.
In Toronto – where Ms Markle has been living and working as an actress for the past seven years – the Toronto Star says the fact the couple’s love story has a distinct touch of Toronto makes the occasion all the happier locally.
The royal bride-to-be went to Northwestern University in Illinios, and the Chicago Tribune runs the headline: “2003 graduate accepts government post in London.”
It describes her as a television actress who’s moving to London to pursue an exciting career that combines diplomacy and charity work. The position comes with the title Her Royal Highness, it adds.
The Times reports that Jeremy Corbyn’s left-wing supporters have been accused of carrying out an “aggressive purge” of centrist councillors to put up their own candidates in local elections next year.
It says councillors across the country have been deselected in a vote of local members or have faced pressure not to contest their seats, in favour of candidates more closely aligned to the cause of the Labour leader and the Momentum campaign that supports him.
The release of six former British soldiers detained in India on weapons charges since 2013 is widely reported, but there’s criticism of the Indian justice system.
In the Sun’s view, it was outrageous and a mark of the “chaotic” Indian legal system that the men were locked up at all, let alone for so long.
The Mirror thinks the legal and diplomatic systems clearly failed the “Chennai Six”. After initial charges were quashed, then re-instated by a lower court, followed by convictions in January last year, before Monday’s acquittal, something went badly wrong.
