Newspaper headlines: 'Harry's jibe' and 'NHS in crisis' – BBC

Both the Guardian and the Express lead on senior Tories calling on Rishi Sunak to step in and end the nurses' pay dispute. "For Nurses, For Britain, Sit Down And Sort This Out" is the Express's headline.
The Guardian says the prime minister's being implored to ask the independent pay review body to look again at the issue.
The Times quotes senior NHS figures warning that next week's strike by ambulance workers will pose "the biggest danger yet" to patients. But the Telegraph says ministers fear opening the floodgates to above-inflation claims, throughout the public sector.
The Mirror pictures nurses going to the aid of a man who collapsed near a picket line in Bristol.
The Telegraph highlights a 40% jump in hospital admissions in England for flu, over the past week. The paper has carried out an analysis suggesting admissions rates are eight times higher than expected for this time of year – outpacing those for Covid, for the first time. The Telegraph says the NHS is bracing itself for one of the worst outbreaks of the virus in years.
Along with many other papers, the Daily Mail leads on what it describes as a "brutal" finale to the Sussexes' streaming series. The paper says Prince Harry mounted a "savage onslaught" against his brother and father when he accused William of screaming at him, and Charles of lying to his face.
"The Traitor and the Dutiful" is the headline for the Sun as it pictures William and his family arriving for last night's carol service at Westminster Abbey.
The Times devotes ten pages to the story and – in an editorial – demands Harry and Meghan hand back their titles, and remove themselves from the line of succession.
But a reviewer in the Guardian gives the last three episodes four stars, saying salacious details mixed with saccharine sweetness made for a satisfying happily ever-after.
The Guardian reports that a third of staff in ministerial private offices at Dominic Raab's department, the Ministry of Justice, say they have been bullied or harassed at work in the past year. The paper has seen an internal Whitehall survey in which ten out of 33 workers claim to have been the victims of bad behaviour – apparently a four-fold increase on the previous year. Mr Raab is facing eight formal complaints of bullying from his time running several different departments, which he has strongly denied. The document cited in the Guardian does not identify who in the survey is being accused of bullying.
