The plan to have all UK adults vaccinated against Covid-19 by the end of July dominates the Sunday papers, most of which are also keeping tabs on the Duke of Edinburgh as he remains in hospital.

The Sunday Telegraph leads on the vaccine plan, while carrying a main front page photo of Prince Charles after his visit to his ailing father.

The Mail On Sunday splashes with Boris Johnson’s plan for “Jabs for every UK adults by July 31st”, a story echoed on the front of The Independent and the Sunday Express.

“All jabbed by July” writes the Sunday Mirror, while the Sunday People cheers the news under a headline of “Free by summer”.

The Observer focuses on more immediate Covid news, reporting a leading scientist has urged Mr Johnson to lift the ban on outside sport.

Elsewhere, The Sunday Times leads on Harry and Meghan, saying the Duke of Cambridge is “sad and shocked” over the actions of his brother and “furious” over his perceived insult to the Queen, but still misses him.

And the Daily Star Sunday reports the late comedian Les Dawson’s daughter says he is keeping an eye on her son from beyond the grave.
