Major league owners will not approve Miles Prentice's proposed $75-million bid to buy the Kansas City Royals in its present form, a high-ranking baseball official told the Associated Press. Prentice, a New York lawyer who has pursued the team for almost two years, will be asked to re-form his group, the official said, speaking on the condition he not be identified.

And they're off! Prince William, his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and their son, Prince George, concluded their 19-day tour of Australia and New Zealand on Friday and have set off for their journey back to the United Kingdom. The second in line to the British throne and his comely family were left "bowled over" by the warmth of the welcome from well-wishers, Kensington Palace said, as they ended the longest royal tour in a generation and Prince George's first official trip overseas.

Comedian Redd Foxx, who became a television star playing an irascible, bawdy junkman in "Sanford and Son" and returned nearly two decades later in the current CBS series "The Royal Family," died Friday of a heart attack. He was 68. Foxx died at Queen of Angels-Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center nearly four hours after he collapsed at Paramount Studios while rehearsing the latest episode of his television series. Foxx was stricken at 4:10 p.m.

Baby George, meet bilby George! As part of the duke and duchess of Cambridge's ongoing royal visit to Australia, the wee prince and his parents got to meet George's marsupial namesake during a visit to Sydney's Taronga Zoo on Sunday.  Upon arrival at the enclosure, the excited boy was wriggling and squealing at the crowd and the rabbit-like animal, according to Clarence House.  With a little help from his folks, who helped him stand up...

I admit it: I love Kate Middleton. I love that she defied the usual dating advice and waited years for her prince to come around. I love that she's a commoner but still wears those outrageous feathered hats. Most of all, I love that the hats are the most remarkable thing about her. Pretty without being distractingly gorgeous, fashionable without pushing boundaries, reserved without being shy, Catherine Elizabeth Middleton doesn't have even a fraction of the tragic mystique of Diana, Princess of Wales.

After reading the comments from Paul Dempsey in the letters of Dec. 1, suggesting that he had received no communication from the Kings organization when he decided not to renew his seats after 17 years as a season-ticket holder, I felt compelled to personally respond. Despite his comments to the contrary, Mr. Dempsey's decision to end a 17-year partnership with us was never taken lightly and our correspondence with him was extensive -- as it should have been.

Re "Camilla to See if the Royal Act Plays in the U.S.," Oct. 27 Surely they jest. Are Americans ready for a possible Queen Camilla, you ask? That's a question more properly posed to Britons. The royals are a bit late -- we stopped caring in 1776. ANN BOURMAN Los Angeles

UNTIL I read your May 24 article on Sofia Coppola's new movie, "Marie Antoinette," I was actually looking forward to seeing it ["Royal Lineage," by Kenneth Turan, May 24]. Then you reported that she scored the film with contemporary rock music from bands like the Gang of Four, New Order, Bow Wow Wow, the Strokes and the Cure. That's enough to put me off right there, especially after the "Moulin Rouge" remake already proved how badly modern-day pop music meshes with a historical setting.

Re "Failed romance a lesson in class," Column One, April 18 How sad that a son of the "People's Princess" apparently cannot marry a princess from the people. DEANNA DAVIS Valencia This much is clear about the royal family: Our opinions of them may be mixed, but for those of us in the middle class, their opinions of us are not.

Reading is such an improbable idea -- a miracle, really. Yet simple squiggles on a page, arranged just so, can convey ideas that change the way we think or introduce to us characters we love for a lifetime. In celebration of reading -- and of this weekend's Los Angeles Times Festival of Books -- we asked four readers (who also happen to be writers) to celebrate books that mattered in their lives. The book was called "The Royal Road to Romance," and to a pre-adolescent boy with a fear of anything girlish, it sounded an awful lot like a bodice-ripper.

With the royal wedding of Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) and Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) fast approaching, goings on at King's Landing are as deadly and devious as ever on “Two Swords,” the Season 4 premiere of HBO's “Game of Thrones.” Tywin (Charles Dance), House Lannister's cold-blooded patriarch, begins Episode 31 by melting a sword made of rare Valyrian steel and having it forged into two weapons. He presents one sword to son Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) before ordering him to leave the capitol and rule over Casterly Rock, their ancestral stronghold.

All high schools would be fortunate to have a No. 2 pitcher as talented as senior Chris Kovach of Simi Valley Royal. He's showing signs of being a standout this season, improving to 3-1 on Friday while lowering his ERA to 1.50 in a 4-1 Marmonte League victory over Calabasas. He struck out five, walked one and allowed six hits in five innings. His fastball was clocked at 86 mph in the first inning. Royal is 10-1 this season and the combination of left-hander Kurt Johnson (4-0)

Raise your hand if you're going to miss Majesty Rose. Yeah, my hand is up too. The sparkly-eyed singer with the infectious gap-toothed smile was sent home by "American Idol" voters Thursday night, as the top 9 shrank to the top 8 in a lean half-hour show. Though they seemed tempted, the judges ultimately decided not to save her. "This has without doubt been the hardest deliberation from us tonight. ... But we've got to agree, and by a narrow, narrow margin, we are not going to use our save tonight," Keith Urban solemnly informed Rose after she'd sung her save-me song, a vocally shaky, physically upbeat take on Pharrell Williams' "Happy," which she'd finished with an open-armed spin across the stage.

Angels 3, Royals 2 AT THE PLATE: Mike Trout lifted his Cactus League average to .400. He homered and doubled, and he leads the Angels with four home runs and 14 runs batted in. David Freese went hitless in three at-bats. He is batting .212 this spring, with no extra-base hits in 33 at-bats. ON THE MOUND: Jered Weaver retired 13 consecutive batters at one point. Nick Maronde, who could open the season as the lone left-hander in the Angels' bullpen, relieved Weaver and retired left-handed batters Eric Hosmer and Alex Gordon.

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Mike Trout and Albert Pujols hit home runs in the same game three times last year. The Angels won all three. So it was little wonder that the Angels were encouraged on Thursday, when Trout and Pujols each hit home runs in a 3-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals. Trout hit his second home run in two days, and Pujols hit his first home run of the spring. Jered Weaver and four relievers combined on a four-hitter. Weaver gave up two runs and three hits in 5 1/3 innings, with no walks and five strikeouts.

LONDON - Trying not to be penny-wise but pound-foolish, Britain announced Wednesday that it will ditch its venerable round 1-pound coin in favor of a new 12-sided model specially designed to foil counterfeiters. The new piece, to enter circulation in 2017, will maintain the nugget-like size of the current version, about the diameter of a U.S. nickel and nearly twice as heavy. But it will incorporate different-colored metals, for a faux gold and silver look, instead of the mostly copper blend now in circulation, and boast a high-tech anti-forgery feature used in paper money that remains shrouded in secrecy by the Royal Mint.
