Royal wedding splashes: FT is the odd one out

The Financial Times is the only UK national paper not leading on the royal wedding today.

The Independent, which has traditionally played down royal coverage, carries pictures of the build-up to the wedding celebrations on its front page - although it does say in the bottom right corner: "Not interested in the Royal Wedding? Turn now to page six."

The Guardian also splashes on the royal wedding but says in a leader: "For most of us this is a day off..not a day for tugging of forelocks."

  • Online the Guardian has it both ways with readers being able to select wedding coverage or other news by clicking a box for "royalists" or "republicans".
