Trust me: If you've ever fantasized about leading the Life of Royally, a week here at close quarters with the Flying Yorks, Andrew and Sarah, would have cured you. Forget the jewels (St. Edward's crown weighs more than a crash helmet, and there's no chin strap). Forget the crowds squealing your name (or some tacky boarding-school moniker). Forget, if you can, all that money (it has your mother's or your mother-in-law's face on it). Be honest here.

A slimmed-down Sarah Ferguson, once dubbed the "Duchess of Pork," signed on as a spokeswoman Wednesday for Weight Watchers International. The company said it believed the Duchess of York, who went on the Weight Watchers program in December, would inspire others to lose weight. But marketing experts said Ferguson, caught in tabloid photographs topless and having her toes sucked by her financial advisor, might prove an embarrassment to Weight Watchers, a company with a wholesome appeal.

"I named my cat after her," Wiggers confided. "My cat has red hair, and I named her Fergie." Wiggers joined at least 500 Fergie fans in the rain-soaked parking lot of Vroman's bookstore to await her brush with--and autographed autobiography from--the Duchess of York.
