Daily Telegraph

The Telegraph/Sunday Telegraph

If ever there was a front page which was memorable, original, beautifully clear and impactful then this was it - The front page of the Daily Telegraph on September 9th.

The black and white image of the Queen, used across the whole of the broadsheet front page, was a magnificent tribute. It captured - with stunning reproduction quality - the warmth and wisdom of Her Majesty.

But, crucially, what made it stand out above the rest was the use of the Queen's own words - '' Grief is the price we pay for love'' - alongside the image.

They made the front page not just impactful but truly memorable - the quote encapsulated the philosophy of the Queen which was so much admired by the British public.

Indeed, the words were echoed by Prince William the next day (10th) in his first public tribute to his grandmother, in which he noted: "My grandmother famously said that grief was the price we pay for love. All of the sadness we will feel in the coming weeks will be testament to the love we felt for our extraordinary Queen."

The Archbishop of Canterbury, in his first sermon of remembrance at Canterbury Cathedral for the late Queen on Sept 11th, also used it telling the congregation: “This is a moment of deep grief, indeed. As Her Majesty said herself, grief is the price we pay for love."

Memorable, original and impactful.
