the main stories… …and how they were covered

What happened The royal rift The Queen gave her reluctant blessing this week to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s decision to step down as senior royals. In a personal statement after crisis talks at Sandringham, the 93-year-old monarch said that while she would have preferred her grandson and his wife to have remained full-time working royals, she understood their desire to “live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family”. It had been agreed that there would be a “period of transition”, she said, during which the couple would divide their time between Canada and the UK (see page 20). The urgent family summit was convened after Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, blindsided Buckingham Palace last week by releasing a “personal message” stating their desire…

Have you ever wanted to know the exact age of maximum human unhappiness? It’s 47.2. Economists can be relied on to gauge complex phenomena with implausible precision, and this week a US National Bureau of Economic Research study has pinpointed the average moment of peak misery. Happiness, it has long been thought, follows a U-shaped curve. You start off with high hopes and few responsibilities, but in your 20s, 30s and early 40s things get steadily worse, as work and family pressures mount and you fall into the trough of middle-aged despair – wrangling children and elderly parents, dealing with financial strain, weight gain, hair loss, divorce, etc. Then things get gradually better, as those pressures lift, and you come to terms with your slightly disappointing life.

Controversy of the week Life after Corbyn The race to replace Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader isn’t quite going to plan, said The Times. Labour’s left, which has a tight grip on the party, was supposedly all in favour of the 40-year-old shadow business secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey – the “continuity Corbyn” candidate. Yet her campaign has faltered, marred by a series of clumsy statements and interview gaffes. She claimed to have witnessed the deep distress of her father – a docker – at the closure of the Salford docks though she was only two at the time. She was ridiculed for claiming that she went into acareer in commercial law in order to “give something back” to the community. And asked to appraise Corbyn’s leadership, she uncritically awarded it – to widespread…

Designed to help consumers understand the environmental impact of their shopping, the carbon labelling data is certified by the Carbon Trust, and will begin to appear on Quorn products from June. In another high street first, John Lewis has opened a make-up counter for men.

It is intended as a temporary pop-up run by make-up brand War Paint for Men, but the store has suggested that sales have been so brisk, it could be rolled out elsewhere.…
