Front Pages For A Queen: 37 World Newspapers Mark The Death Of Elizabeth II

"The world weeps", "Farewell, my Queen", "The rock Britain was built on".... were among the headlines as front pages from virtually every newspaper in the world were dedicated to the passing of the iconic monarch. Here is a selection of 37 newspaper front pages from 29 countries.

Front Pages For A Queen: 37 World Newspapers Mark The Death Of Elizabeth II

Newspapers pays tribute to the Queen on their front pages this morning.

The world has been living a bonafide global moment since the news arrived Thursday afternoon that Elizabeth II, Britain's longest-reigning monarch, had died at the age if 96, surrounded by her family in her Scottish home of Balmoral Castle.

It was the poignant bookend on another shared media moment 70 years ago, when her 1952 coronation became one of the major televised events of the 20th century, as BBC cameramen were allowed inside Westminster Abbey, inaugurating a long and complicated history between the British royal family and the media.


World leaders reacted to the news, starting with new UK Prime Minister Liz Truss saluting "the rock on which modern Britain was built" as she announced a 10-day period of national mourning. U.S President Joe Biden paid homage to "a stateswoman of unmatched dignity and constancy" while France’s Emmanuel Macron remembered "a kind-hearted queen who has left a lasting impression on her country and her century."

With newspapers from around the world dedicating their front pages to the news, we've gathered a sample of 37 from 29 different countries:

Purge At Your Peril: Too Many Detox Treatments Come With Hidden Dangers

Teas, colon cleansing, and even ear candles… the market for alternative detox solutions has never been more lucrative. But as one expert explains, not only are their reported benefits unproven, the treatments can also be dangerous.

Mix well?

Edzard Ernst

-Analysis-

BERLIN — In medicine, the word “detox” means a course of treatment to remove all traces of a drug from an addict’s body. In alternative medicine, however, it refers to any process that is supposed to rid the body of poisons or toxins. Not only is it often ineffective, but it can also even be dangerous.

This definition naturally raises the question: what poisons does a detox target? The answer, ostensibly, is all kinds of toxins that are produced by our own metabolism, or come from the environment, prescription medicines or our diets.

And what kinds of treatments are touted as detoxes? Again, the list is equally expansive: homeopathy and acupuncture, of course, but also various diets, homotoxicology, colon cleansing, ear candles, phytotherapy, cupping, shiatsu, gua sha and tui na.

In practice, it is hard to find any alternative therapy whose proponents don’t believe it rids the body of toxins. The detox myth is now so firmly rooted that even mainstream companies that otherwise have nothing to do with alternative medicine are offering products such as detox teas.

Central to the tragic absurdity of this war is the question of language. Vladimir Putin has repeated that protecting ethnic Russians and the Russian-speaking populations of Ukraine was a driving motivation for his invasion.

Yet one month on, a quick look at the map shows that many of the worst-hit cities are those where Russian is the predominant language: Kharkiv, Odesa, Kherson.
