Another quiet night. Two pictures of Kate Middleton tonight (think someone should set up Kate-watch as a blog for the next two months). The Guardian has her flipping pancakes (as well as the devastating effects of reforms to the benefit system on cancer patients) while The Telegraph just has her walking (and air strikes across Europe). The Times leads with Libya while the Indy continues to crusade on Belarus.

The battle for Zawiya in Tripoli is increasingly intense, with Gaddafi’s tanks rolling into the rebel held city 30 miles from Tripoli.
