The Scottish Sun leads with apology to Queen Downing Street officials in relation to the parties. Another person who should apologize to the queen is her second eldest son, the Duke of York, says Sun. The newspaper claims that apology No. 10 “accumulates pressure” on Prince Andrew to apologize to his mother.

The Daily Express claims the Queen “deserves better than this.” On the front page is a photo of the queen sitting alone at her husband’s funeral – a picture in stark contrast to the behavior of number 10 staff at the parties the day before, critics say.
