A variety of stories from the worlds of politics and celebrity make headlines on Sunday, while photos of the Cambridges watching football also take centre stage.

The Sunday Times leads with an “escalation” in the “constitutional crisis”, reporting that Prime Minister Boris Johnson is prepared to “squat” and remain in 10 Downing Street even if his proposals were rejected in Brussels and MPs tried to unseat him.

Meanwhile, the Sunday Telegraph writes that Mr Johnson would look to send a Eurosceptic commissioner to Brussels if forced to delay Brexit past October 31.

The Observer reports on the Duke of Sussex’s legal action against two media groups, accusing Mirror Group Newspapers and News UK of an “industrial-scale cover-up”.

The Independent leads with a poll suggesting that only one in five Britons believe Mr Johnson can secure a Brexit deal.

Vinnie Jones is on the front of the Sunday Mirror where the footballer-turned-actor talks about the death of his wife.

The Sunday People reports that an investigation into an assault suffered by AJ Pritchard has been discontinued.

The Mail on Sunday runs with Thomas Markle speaking about a “controversial letter” sent to him by the now Duchess of Sussex.

The Sunday Express says that Mr Johnson will tell Brussels that Britain is leaving the EU in 25 days without a deal unless there is compromise on their side.

And the Star on Sunday leads on the weather, saying that storms will bring “misery” for millions until after Christmas.
