Mr. Neil, who went on to be a broadcaster and publisher, is no reflexive defender of the royal family. Suspicious of Britain’s class system, he said he had sympathies for the republican movement in the 1980s. The show depicts his being fired for having leaked the story, even though it suggests that he did so at the queen’s behest. Simon Jenkins, a columnist for the left-leaning Guardian, regards members of the royal family as artifacts of celebrity culture irrelevant to a country grappling with real-world challenges like Brexit. (He based the report on an off-the-record interview with the prince.)

LONDON (Reuters) - British finance minister Rishi Sunak, who has already pledged over 200 billion pounds ($267 billion) to fight the COVID-19 crisis, will free up more cash on Wednesday against the backdrop of the heaviest public borrowing since World War Two. FILE PHOTO: Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak talks during a TV interview in London, Britain November 22, 2020. With Britain’s full exit from the European Union approaching on Dec. 31 - and no new trade agreement yet secured - Sunak is likely to announce more spending on customs operations and possibly replacement subsidies for farmers. But borrowing forecasts accompanying his blueprint are likely to dwarf the spending plans. Sunak says now is not the time to rein in spending or raise taxes to address the deficit.

Five passengers aboard the first cruise ship to resume sailing in the Caribbean have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to reports and an interview with a passenger. Bryant said the five people who tested positive appear to be travelling in one group. The ship is currently at the Port of Bridgetown in Barbados, according to cruisemapper, which tracks the location of cruise ships and other vessels. The news of a cluster of infections aboard a cruise ship is a blow to the industry, which is among the hardest hit sectors of the global economy. Cruise travel has been brought largely to a standstill since March, after some of the earliest Covid-19 outbreaks occurred on cruise ships, resulting in some deaths.

Locals read a newspaper as residents of Ballina, Co. Mayo, Ireland, begin celebrations in the ancestral home of US Presidential candidate Joe Biden in anticipation of the results of the US election as Biden edges closer to victory over Donald Trump. International media erupted with headlines over the weekend announcing former Vice President Joe Biden’s win in the 2020 U.S. presidential race, many depicting the world breathing a sigh of relief after several tense days of a prolonged vote count. The U.K.’s Sunday Times ran the headline: “Sleepy Joe wakes up America,” a poke at incumbent President Donald Trump’s derogatory nickname for the 77-year-old Biden. Many British papers focused on the enduring legacy of the now lame-duck Trump, who is refusing to accept Biden’s victory and is launching legal challenges in several states. Britain’s The Times described “joyous scenes after days of deadlock” across the U.S. after Biden’s win.
