Newspaper headlines: 'Together for Granny' and 'surrounded by love' – BBC

By BBC News

The Sunday Telegraph and the Observer carry the same photograph of Queen Elizabeth's grandchildren side by side in Westminster Hall for their vigil at her coffin. The Sunday Mirror's headline calls them "granny's guard of honour". The Telegraph says the cousins maintained their composure as members of the public filed past them in tears.
The Sunday People's front page focuses on William and Harry's role in what it calls the "vigil of love". The Sun on Sunday says the brothers put aside their differences to show a united front.
The Daily Star Sunday calls them "brothers in arms for gran".
The Sunday Express says it is backing a major campaign to enshrine the memory of Queen Elizabeth with a dedicated day in the national calendar, and a statue on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square. It points out that an online petition in support of a new "Elizabeth Day" has already been backed by more than 138,000.
The arrival of a host of foreign dignitaries for the funeral inspires Matt's Telegraph cartoon, which features a sign in a Royal Souvenir shop reading: "Only two world leaders in store at any time".
The Observer says Prime Minister Liz Truss faces a potentially bruising transition back to normal politics after tomorrow. It reports that leading UK business organisations are renewing pressure on ministers for "absolute clarity" on what help they will be offered with their energy bills. The new business secretary, Jacob Rees-Mogg, is due to make an announcement on Wednesday.
Drinking plenty of tea can help reduce the risk of developing type-2 diabetes by nearly a fifth, according to research which has caught the eye of the Sun and other papers. The Chinese authors of the study say the effect is particularly strong among people who have at least four cups a day of black, green or Oolong tea. They think adding a dash of milk might also strengthen the protective effects of a cup of tea, which they attribute to the natural compounds produced by tea plants.
