The appearance of former US president Donald Trump in front of a court in New York features across Wednesday’s newspaper front pages.

Mr Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 charges relating to payments made in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

The Independent calls it a “day that shook America” while Metro simply says “Donald in the Dock”.

“The reckoning” is the take on events from the i while the Daily Star revisits one of Mr Trump’s former tweets as it declares he is in “Bigly trouble”.

The Guardian plays it straight, focusing on the sheer number of charges denied by the former president.

The Financial Times echoes the not guilty plea on a “day of drama” while also finding room to report on the CBI cancelling events in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations.

Several front pages combine Mr Trump’s court appearance with details of next month’s coronation.

The Daily Mirror references the porn star Stormy Daniels’ in its coverage of the former president while also finding room for Prince George’s “starring role” in the coronation.

And the Daily Mail features the change of title to Queen Camilla on the invitations as it leads on Mr Trump’s “hush money plot”.

The Daily Telegraph and The Times both give over much of the front page to the former US president alongside mentions of the coronation plans and stories on government plans to bring in legal protections for biological women.

Only two front pages opt for a different main story – The Sun and Daily Express both concentrate on the King’s coronation, although they both give prominence to the former US president.

The former leads on the dropping of the word consort from coronation invitations, hailing Camilla as “our new Queen”, while the latter focuses on the role Prince George will play as the youngest page boy at his grandfather’s coronation.
