Princess Anne will dump Capt. Mark Phillips once and for all next year, a British newspaper reported yesterday. The Daily Express, citing a source close to the princess, said that despite Buckingham Palace denials, divorce preparations are under way and lawyers have been told to draw up papers for a court hearing in September 1992. The couple, married in 1973, announced their separation two years ago. The two years apart entitles them to a quick, no- fuss, no-muss divorce. The Express said the two agreed to wait until next year after a plea by Queen Elizabeth that they consider their children, Peter, 13, and Zara, 10. If they divorce it will be only the second divorce within the royal family core since King Henry VIII shed Anne of Cleves in the 1500s.

Princess Anne has been suggested for a Nobel Peace Prize by Zambia President Kenneth Kaunda in recognition of her work on behalf of the world's destitute children. "She loves people," Kaunda said Wednesday. "She has extended that love to working for helpless children in many parts of the world. That is love in action. " A $1.4 million gift has been given to Connecticut College to establish a chair in Judaic Studies in the name of Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel. The gift, the largest in the school's 79-year history, was made by Jo Ann Hess Myers, a 1967 alumna, who runs a private school in Birmingham, Ala., and heads the Big Tree Foundation, a private philanthropy.

Scotland Yard sleuths are hot on the trail of the rapscallion who stole four letters that had been written to Queen Elizabeth's daughter, Princess Anne, according to Buckingham Palace officials.

Queen Elizabeth's only daughter, Princess Anne, became the first British royal convicted of a criminal offense in 350 years yesterday, pleading guilty to letting her dog bite two children. It was also the first ever guilty plea by a British royal. She was fined $790, but could have faced six months in jail. The last senior royal convicted of a crime was Charles I, who was beheaded for treason in 1649. Ironically, the case was listed as Regina - Latin for "the Queen" - vs. Anne Elizabeth Alice Laurence, symbolically pitting mother against daughter.
