The front pages feature figures from across the political spectrum having their say on Theresa May's vision for Brexit. The prime minister, writing in the Mail on Sunday, warns both Brussels and would-be Conservative rebels that she will not compromise on her plan for future trade links with the EU. The paper says it is a "hard-hitting message" and a "bold attempt" to kill off plots by pro-Brexit and Remainer MPs who want her to tear up her policy.

In the Sunday Telegraph, the former Brexit minister Steve Baker says he resigned after discovering a plot to undermine Brexit, by what he calls the "establishment elite". He says the cabinet meeting at Chequers last Friday was the coup de grace after 12 months of "cloak and dagger".

Labour peer and former EU trade commissioner Lord Mandelson, in an opinion piece for the Observer, warns that Theresa May's blueprint would lead to a national humiliation. He cautions that the plan would deliver the polar opposite of taking back control, leaving the EU calling the shots indefinitely. He says it would be better to be out of the EU altogether, or to stay in.

The Sunday Times reports that Prince Charles and Prince William were unwilling to meet President Trump during his four-day visit, leaving the Queen to greet him alone. A source describes their non-appearance as a "snub", saying they simply did not want to attend.

A Downing Street insider tells the paper the plan was always to have the Queen appear on her own.

The Sunday Post says the £5 million security operation to protect Mr Trump during his visit to Scotland is under fresh scrutiny, after a paraglider flew close to his hotel at his Turnberry golf resort. The Post's headline asks, "Our round then, Mr President?".

Many of the back pages take stock of the England football team's World Cup campaign, following yesterday's loss to Belgium in the third place playoff. The Star on Sunday hails a brave new world, while the Sunday Mirror believes the team "ended on a sigh" and have done the country proud.

The Observer looks ahead to today's final by profiling the young French striker Kylian Mbappe who, it says, carries the hopes of the French people and of the poor Paris suburbs where he grew up.

And the Sunday Telegraph carries a warning by health campaigners about the effects of high-tech mirror that can point out the flaws in your face.

The Hi-Mirror Mini, which is expected to be sold from September, scans those who peer into it, and presents them with a detailed analysis of "problem areas" such as wrinkles or spots.

The Body Dysmorphic Disorder foundation complains to the paper it's the last thing young women need, and not since Snow White has a mirror been more damaging.
