At tomorrow's spectacular Royal Wedding II, when Sarah Ferguson marries Prince Andrew in Westminster Abbey, the bride officially will become Her Royal Highness the Princess Andrew. However, in the London tabloids and to fans of the world's most popular royal soap opera, the wife of Queen Elizabeth's handsome, gadabout second son will no doubt continue to be affectionately dubbed "Fergie. " At 26, Ferguson is considered "a jolly good sport," a bouncy, affectionate, good-natured young woman with a healthy, milkmaid-pretty face, freckles and a cascade of curly red hair.

"My dental hygienist pointed out that she has third-stage gum disease. " - Author Erica Jong on the smiley-faced Monica Lewinsky That Fergie, Duchess of York, is one spunky gal.

The Duchess of York and Prince Andrew were reunited yesterday in Australia when his destroyer was allowed to dock in Adelaide. A job action by a seaman's union opposed to the ship's nuclear capability had prevented it from doing so for two days. About 100 anti-nuke demonstrators and pro-IRA protesters jeered and jostled the couple, who had been apart since the end of their official visit Down Under two weeks ago. Meanwhile, back at home, the debate rages over Fergie's choice to extend her visit at the expense of mothering Princess Beatrice.

The British media see something besides sensitivity in a recent spate of public crying by the Duchess of York. Could it be, hmmm, let's see - pregnancy? Noted yesterday's Daily Mail: "Women in early pregnancy often tend to be tearful and liable to attacks of sickness. " Fergie cried for 15 minutes last week after viewing a new London play. And Saturday, while visiting her mom in Greenwich, Conn., she wept again at a fund-raising luncheon for the World Wildlife Fund when TV naturalist Jim Fowler brought a 12-foot, 120-pound python to within five feet of her. "I can't, I can't," said the teary duchess, moving behind her husband, Prince Andrew, and her mother, Susan Barrantes.

Bad news for Fergie, the Duchess of York. To paraphrase the Queen of Soul, she's got the house, she's got the car, she's got the rug and she's got the rent, but she no longer has Count Gaddo della Gherardesca. The jet-setting duchess and her Italian older man have ended their year-and-a-half romance, according to London's Mirror newspaper. Fergie's camp, as usual, has found a way to blame the trouble on her former in-laws at Buckingham Palace. Though Fergie and her two daughters, Beatrice, 10, and Eugenie, 8, took several visits to Gaddo's fabulous Tuscan home, there was no way they could move permanently to Italy.

If Prince Philip has his way, the Duchess of York will continue to be barred from royal Christmas fun. Fergie is invited each year to yule doings at the Sandringham estate but since her divorce from Prince Andrew she's been confined to a cottage on the spread, alone, while the other royals revel. The Daily Mirror blames Philip for the continuing exclusion, noting that last week Queen Elizabeth seemed close to letting Sarah join the others. But, the paper said, Philip stomped. It added that he blames her for the marital breakup and besides, he never much liked her to begin with.

The Black Eyed Peas singer says the number of women abused by their partners "is totally unacceptable" and should be protected by existing laws that are often not enforced. The Fergs was at the State Department yesterday to announce a new Justice Institute on Gender-Based Violence initiative to launch training programs in India, Nepal, South Africa and Mexico. The training will bring together law enforcement, service providers and advocacy groups to ensure that abused women can rely on laws that too often are ignored or not understood by local authorities.

ABOUT THIS time of year, Andy Musser and I would catch up with each other for a glass of Anchor Our Special Ale , the San Francisco brewery's Christmas beer. With the recipe for the dark beer famously changing every year - a different spice or grain - he and I would spend an hour or so trying to guess the secret ingredients. Nutmeg, I'd say. Spruce, he'd reply. Andy had retired from the Phillies broadcast booth in 2001 after 26 years as a play-by-play announcer. Years earlier, on an off-day when the Phils were visiting the Giants, he had met Anchor Brewing founder Fritz Maytag.

'W hat on Earth have I done with my life?" the Duchess of York laments, as the poignant piano music plays. "How did I get it so wrong? . . . I am broken, and it hurts. I've got to do this. Otherwise, I will die. " Well, that's a little extreme. Appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Network and getting advice from hucksters such as Suze Orman and Dr. Phil does not sound much like the cure for a terminal disease, but the show chronicling her efforts to stop the hurt will put some money in Sarah Ferguson's coffers.
