Above is a selection of newspaper front pages the day after the Royal Wedding. Interestingly there is nothing much to report - they're all pretty much the same.
Apart from the Times they've all gone for the same picture. No-one has tried anything unusual, nothing graphic.
I suppose the job of a newspaper on a day like this is almost to give you the picture you expect. The shot most people would like on the front page is The Kiss. I wonder what the sales have been like these last few days. I bought these in a supermarket where they were running out fast. It was about 11am and the shop assistant said they'd sold out of papers the day before and they were pretty close to selling out on that day.
The Times deserves some credit for trying a more interesting shot. I love the approach but I'm not sure it works to be honest. I've been a bit unfair to the others by showing the front and back of the paper. The actual front page looks like this.
The Indy, of course, tried this Tracey Emin exclusive which I think is an abysmal failure.
I really like the idea, but I don't think it works. Sure, there are newspapers and readers who aren't interested in the Royal Wedding but in that case why not leave it off the front page. Or just treat it like a normal, fairly large, news story which is what the Guardian have done.
A fairly conservative, slighlty dull, set of front pages. An opportunity missed I feel.
