News Quiz of the Week: How much can you remember?

It's been a busy week in the news, with the 2021 budget setting out plans for the country's finances for the year, plus the anticipation of the bombshell interview of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle by Oprah Winfrey.

During the budget, set out by Chancellor Rishi Sunak on Wednesday, news was given about the furlough scheme, plans to change corporation tax, and changes to the contactless payment limit.

It comes as the government's COVID vaccine rollout continues apace, amid hopes that the roadmap out of lockdown will go as planned.

There has been ongoing drama in the Royal Family as the world awaits Harry and Meghan's interview, with Buckingham Palace also announcing it is launching an investigation into claims the Duchess of Sussex bullied staff.

In showbiz, the Golden Globes took place — albeit virtually — while there have also been plenty of headlines across various sectors to keep us occupied.

But can you actually remember some of those headlines, or have you been ignoring the news?

Yahoo's News Quiz of the Week tests you on ten of the big stories of the week to see how abreast you're keeping with current affairs.

Take it now to see how you do.
