image captionThe Sunday Express says now is the time that Britain “steps up to lead the world”. That’s after the G7 group of advanced economies reached what the paper calls a “groundbreaking” deal in London to make multinational companies pay more tax, and as the prime minister is set to “push forward plans to vaccinate the globe” by the end of next year. It features a picture of actress Olivia Colman as the Queen in the Crown, calling the TV series the “secret” to the “G7 success”.

image captionThe Mail on Sunday says it has seen a “strongly worded letter” from Home Secretary Priti Patel to social media giants, which it says calls on them to “remove posts that ‘glamorise’ illegal Channel crossings”. The paper says there is “growing anger in government that tech companies are allowing people smugglers to use their platforms to advertise their criminal services”.
image captionThe Sunday Times reports that there are plans for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to spend more time in Scotland “to bolster the Union”. The proposals would see them treat Balmoral, the Queen’s Scottish estate, as a “regular home”. A source close to the royal household tells the paper: “They think the politicians have been losing Scotland for them.”
