'I'm sorry mummy': UK papers take aim as Prince Andrew steps down from public duties

Nearly all the papers in Britain lead with the story today.

PRINCE ANDREW’S DECISION to step down from royal duties fills the nation’s papers across Britain today.

Andrew was “shamed into stepping down” from his duties, the Daily Express says, with the i claiming there is a “Crisis at the palace”.
