The Prince of Wales' official 70th birthday photograph with his family was a "nightmare" to plan because his sons blew "hot and cold" with their father, a new book has claimed. Finding Freedom, a new biography of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, chronicles their romance and brief period as members of the monarchy before they broke away to forge a new life for themselves and their son Archie in America. It contains revelations about the princes' relationship with their father, Meghan's training to be a princess, and the Queen's favourite film. But it also comments on how when Charles contracted Covid-19, Harry immediately telephoned his father to find out how the 71-year-old was doing.

President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that Russia had become the first country in the world to grant regulatory approval to a COVID-19 vaccine after less than two months of human testing, a move hailed by Moscow as evidence of its scientific prowess. Regulatory approval paves the way for the mass inoculation of the Russian population and authorities hope it will allow the economy, which has been battered by fallout from the virus, to return to full capacity. Kirill Dmitriev, head of Russia's sovereign wealth fund, hailed the development as a historic "Sputnik moment", comparable to the Soviet Union's 1957 launch of Sputnik 1, the world's first satellite.

Snow was reported in parts of Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales. Credit: Wendy Lindsay via Storyful

It was not exactly a surprise yesterday when Hong Kong police arrested Next Digital founder Jimmy Lai, four executives at the company, and his two sons, and then raided the office of his Apple Daily newspaper - with over 100 police officers. Many journalists in Hong Kong predicted an early move against the Apple Daily when I spoke to them over the past month about the impact of the new National Security Law, which came into effect on 1 July. After all, Lai, an outspoken critic of the Communist Party of China and a vocal advocate for local democracy, had long been a thorn in the side of mainland authorities, and they made no secret of their disdain for him.Even so, the scope of the arrests and the ridiculously ostentatious raid and search of journalist material was shocking. It was obviously intended not just to thwart Lai and his media group, but to intimidate Hong Kong’s entire community of journalists and hammer a few nails in the coffin of press freedom. It might not succeed, at least on its own.
