The Prime Minister’s latest Brexit woes and the Duke of Cambridge joining the ranks of Her Majesty’s secret service make the front pages on Sunday.

The Sunday Telegraph reports that Tory councillors have warned donations are drying up and activists are refusing to campaign for the party because members feel Theresa May has “betrayed” them over Brexit.

Mrs May’s MPs will bid to oust her within weeks if the UK is forced to take part in European elections next month and extend the Brexit deadline beyond the end of June, The Observer says.

Meanwhile, the Sunday Express leads on the Duke of Cambridge spending three weeks working with MI5, MI6 and GCHQ to better understand how the UK’s security and intelligence agencies work.

Royal matters also make the front of the Mail on Sunday, which claims that the Duchess of Sussex has appointed her own delivery team to oversee the birth of her child, rather than the Royal Household gynaecologists.

In other news, The Sunday Times reports that leaked internal documents reveal Labour has failed to take disciplinary action against hundreds of members accused of anti-Semitism under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership.

And the Sunday Mirror says Novichok victim Charlie Rowley met with Russia’s ambassador in London to question him about the death of his partner Dawn Sturgess.
