    Keir Starmer's 'blueprint' for government

    Labour has unveiled a plan for the biggest-ever transference of power to the British people with a report that also recommends the House of Lords is replaced with an elected chamber.

    It's part of what Sir Keir Starmer called radical plans and a fundamental remodelling of our broken political system. His plans include replacing the House of Lords, banning most MPs from having a second job, and moving 50,000 civil servants out of the capital.

    On the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson breaks down Labour's plans with our political correspondent Joe Pike.

    Royal race row: Can they modernise?

    Royal race row: Can they modernise?

    The Prince and Princess of Wales's first overseas trip since the Queen's death has been overshadowed by controversy at home. The prince’s godmother has resigned from her role in the royal household after she repeatedly asked Ngozi Fulani, a black domestic abuse campaigner, where she “really came from”.

    A spokesperson for Prince William, who is on a three-day visit to Boston, Massachusetts, said Lady Susan Hussey's comments were "unacceptable" and that "racism has no place in our society".

    On the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson gets the reaction in Boston from Sky's royal correspondent Laura Bundock and speaks to Sunder Katwala from British Future about diversity in Buckingham Palace. Plus, PR specialist Professor Cele Otnes speaks about the role the younger royals could play in rebranding the Royal Family.
