The 'ultimate tabloid headline' meme

Despite everything else that could be talked about, lots of bits of the media are talking about the Royal blackmail – apparently, a minor Royal was being blackmailed with a sex and drugs video – so I’m starting a meme: what is the best tabloid headline you can invent for this story?

I’m going for ‘Royal sex tape blackmail shock’ except for the Daily Express, which will be ‘al Fayed says tape shows Prince Philip plotting Diana death’.

I’m tagging Matthew Sinclair, Tiberius Gracchus, the People’s Commissar of Enlightenment and Nourishing Obscurity.

    Surely it is from The Daily Mail – “Outrage as asylum seeker attempts to bribe up-standing relative of HM The Queen Mother”?

    I couldn’t understand some parts of this article meme, but I guess I just need to check some more resources regarding this, because it sounds interesting.

    I’m guessing you’re not based in the UK?

    Tabloids are low-quality national newspapers with a reputation for sensationalism that tend to go for dramatic headlines – they are also generally obsessed with the Royal Family and other trivia.
