Prince Edward will make his first trip to the United States in August when he joins 500 other Brits for the Broadway opening of the London hit show, Me and My Girl, Aug. 9. Edward, 22, who just finished his Cambridge University stint and will enter a marines officer-training program in the fall, will be the royal house's last eligible bachelor by then. His older brother, Prince Andrew, will marry Sarah Ferguson on July 23. Yesterday, Scotland Yard disclosed that "about 2,000" police officers would be deployed for wedding duty.
