British Prime Minister Liz Truss later admitted in an interview with the BBC that her cabinet mishandled the announcement of her new tax cut programme, sparking one of the toughest weeks for UK markets in recent months. “I recognize that we should have laid the foundation for our plan better.

Among the most watched is Catherine Middleton, the new Princess of Wales, who was vigilant during the funeral service, along with her two eldest children, George and Charlotte, who softened the world with their serenity
