Edward VIII gave up the British throne for Wallis Simpson, the twice-divorced American socialite he loved. Now, an auction house has sold more than 260 of his love letters--but they're not to Wallis. "Mon amour, I swear I'll never marry any woman other than you," he wrote to Freda Dudley-Ward, the wife of a Parliament member, with whom he had a 16-year relationship. The letter was dated April 18, 1920, when he was still Prince of Wales.

Now that Vice President Dan Quayle will be out of a job, I suggest he apply to the royal family of England. That would kill two birds with one stone. He'd have a job and at the same time he could teach them about "family values." S. DELL SCOTT Encino

Miss California once licked a banana slug. Miss South Dakota skated through a blizzard in a swimsuit. And Miss Tennessee was offered 5,000 camels for her hand in marriage while traveling in Israel. If the judges at this year's Miss USA pageant decide to pick winners based on weirdness, there will be some stiff competition: Most unusual hobby Tie: "Listening to the advice of elders" (Miss District of Columbia); "reading about the royal family of England, especially before 1950" (Miss Louisiana).

October 24, 1994 | Princess Diana's supposed lover has bared all about intimate moments while Diana was still with Charles. Prince Charles has bared all for a book that says he had a terribly unhappy childhood and was forced to marry Diana. The continuing scandals have commentators predicting the end of the British monarchy, but love of the royals runs deep among Britons, even (or maybe e s pecially) the 1 million or so who live far from home in Southern California. JAMES BLAIR went to the Kings Head Bar in Santa Monica to check the pulse of local Britons. and
LLOYD G. SCOTT Construction worker, from London, three years in Southern California I understand that Prince Charles said he was forced to marry Diana even though he didn't love her. Well, the Royal Family's been doing that for hundreds of years. Originally, the children used to marry princesses or princes from Germany or France just to keep the peace among nations. So it's nothing new. The fact is that now, through the media, it comes out.

Every day since 1968, William Bennett Edwards has grown more certain something secret, something sinister, is growing around the rocky acreage of copperheads and poison ivy on top of Afton Mountain, where he lives outside Waynesboro, Va. He and his wife, Virginia Davis Edwards, say they have witnessed over the years the world's richest and most powerful people motoring past their modest house just off the shoulder of Route 250.

Prince Edward, the least troubled member of Queen Elizabeth's problem-ridden brood, made an appearance Friday afternoon at the most unlikely of venues: the domed homeless village known as Genesis I. And so, in the dusky late afternoon, in the shadow of a freeway on-ramp, Edward, in natty double-breasted gray suit, sat in a white, fiberglass dome with Ted Hayes, the dreadlock homeless activist and onetime mayoral candidate, for a chat.

Question: How do I go about hiring someone to help with the housework? Answer: You have two choices: hire an individual yourself or contact one of the many professional agencies listed in the telephone book under the heading House Cleaning. There are advantages to both strategies. When you go through an agency, workers are insured and bonded. A representative will come to your home, discuss details and give you an estimate. If you have questions or complaints, you deal with the manager.
