More developments in the royal saga dominate Scotland’s Sunday papers. “Showdown at Sandringham” screams the Scottish Sunday Express as it reveals that the Queen will host a meeting with Prince Charles, Prince Harry and Prince William on Monday, with Meghan potentially joining in via conference call from Canada.
The Scottish Mail on Sunday calls the summit “unprecedented” as it claims the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be warned about the “dire financial impact of abandoning the Royal Family” and the potential tax implications. The paper quotes a source as calling the meeting a “reality check”.
An exclusive in the Sunday Times Scotland claims Prince William has spoken of his “sadness” at the broken bond with his brother and voiced “sorrow” that the royal family is no longer a “team”. The paper goes on to claim the Duke said he and Prince Harry are now “separate entities”.
The Sunday National gives its attention to Saturday’s pro-independence march in Glasgow with an almost full-page photo of a sea of saltires making their way through the city. The paper claims more than 80,000 supporters braved the wind and rain to join the march.
