Sarah Ferguson, Britain's famous flame-haired divorcée, is haunted by old loves. "I didn't fight for my own heart in my marriage" she says, looking slender and chic in a black dress and Christian Louboutin high heels during a recent visit to Los Angeles. She is referring to, of course, her tumultuous, high-profile relationship with Prince Andrew, Duke of York, second son of Queen Elizabeth II. Her candid confession may explain why she was attracted to the royal romance at the center of "The Young Victoria," the period costume drama she produced with Graham King and Martin Scorsese.

I wish Diana, the Princess of Wales, were around to see the royal wedding of her son, Prince William, to Kate Middleton. Mostly because I just wish Diana were still around. Those of us who are of her generation already went through this ritual once — the early rising or late-staying-up to watch her wedding 30 years ago, the one that turned out to be a fairy tale without a happy ending. We saw the signs but, like Diana herself, tried to ignore them. We remember the way she smiled so expectantly and hopefully at Charles on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after the wedding.

If a single prince is in want of a wife, no one puts on a better show than the British when he finally gets one. That truth was universally acknowledged Friday when William Arthur Philip Louis Mountbatten-Windsor, second in line to the British throne, married Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, his college sweetheart, in a ceremony dripping with tradition and sparkly jewels. The couple exchanged vows in the soaring Gothic interior of Westminster Abbey before 1,900 guests, including more than 40 crowned heads and scores of dignitaries and celebrities.

Princess Anne, the divorced only daughter of Queen Elizabeth II, was married in a simple Scottish ceremony Saturday to Cmdr. Timothy J.H. Laurence, a British naval officer. The wedding--which brought some needed cheer to a Royal Family that has gone through what the queen has called a "horrible year"--was a small, private affair, with the world's media kept at a long arm's length.

Britain's Prince Charles and Princess Diana caught a London rock 'n' roll show together Saturday night, after weeks of speculation about the state of the royal marriage. Diana, appearing in a skin-tight, purple satin suit, munched sugary popcorn, clicked her fingers and drummed on her knees at the Wembley Stadium concert by Genesis while her husband, sitting next to her in the royal box, nodded his head in time to the beat and tapped on his knees during the faster songs.

Prince Charles should end his relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles or abdicate his claim to the British throne, a senior clergyman said. "We are not going to have a confessed adulterer as supreme head of the Church of England," said the Rev. David Streeter, director of the Church Society, the senior evangelical body of the state Church of England. Princess Diana blamed Parker-Bowles, 49, for the failure of the royal marriage. Charles, 48, confirmed long-standing rumors of an affair.

British newspapers printed allegations that Princess Diana tried to commit suicide five times in despair over her marriage to Prince Charles, and Buckingham Palace on Sunday blamed a newspaper circulation war for the media frenzy. Diana was said to have flung herself down stairs, cut her wrists with a razor, cut her chest and thighs with a knife, thrown herself at a glass cabinet and cut herself with a lemon slicer in tormented cries for help.
