Lt. Kim Haus, an Army nurse from Mechanicsburg, Pa., was feeling a little homesick last Christmas. She was on duty in Saudi Arabia. And when she sat down to her Christmas dinner, it wasn't the colorful red and green "Seasons Greetings" message on the paper placemat that cheered her up. She had to look a little closer. The fine print in the bottom right-hand corner came in loud and clear. It read: "Royal, Coatesville, Pa. " "She said she felt like she was back home," said Alan Milberg, vice president of Royal Paper Products Inc. Haus wrote a letter to Royal on the back of the placemat.

Prince Andrew Albert Christian Edward, Duke of York, Earl of Inverness and Baron Killyleagh, 42 - flyboy, player, daddy, duffer, funnyman, speed demon, doer of good deeds, and royal billboard - graces us with a visit Sunday. The ex-husband of Weight Watchers pitchwoman Sarah Ferguson will push product in his role as a trade rep. He'll do the noblesse oblige thing Monday, launching a charity in North Philadelphia. The social set is atwitter. Oliver St. Clair Franklin, honorary British consul, reminds us it's "the first visit to Philadelphia by the son of a reigning British monarch in nearly a century.

Dennis Burlingame, The Inquirer's South Jersey baseball player of the year for 1987, yesterday reported to the Atlanta Braves' instructional league affiliate in West Palm Beach, Fla., after having signed a contract last month. Burlingame had signed a grant-in-aid with the University of Nebraska after leading Kingsway High to the NJSIAA Group 1 championship game in June. But the 6-foot-4 righthander changed his mind about college and signed with Atlanta on Aug. 19 - the night before he was scheduled to leave for Nebraska - said his mother, Julie.

Jeff Parke may play on the other side of the country but he still calls Philadelphia home. Parke, a Drexel alum and a graduate of Downingtown High, "when it was still Downingtown" joined the Sounders on May 15 after an dispute regarding contract terms. The defender inked a 1-year deal with a 2-year option worth $100,000 in guaranteed compensation, after holding out for a better deal than Seattle initially proposed. "It's been a long road with the whole contract thing, but that's all cleared up and I am just excited to be apart of this team," said Parke, 28. "It was difficult, but I wanted to make sure I was setting myself up for the next few years.

THE FLYERS had Kate Smith, the Royals have SungWoo Lee. Lee doesn't sing, but he's every bit a good-luck charm as Kate was. Lee, a self-professed Royals "Super Fan," is jetting from South Korea to Kansas City to attend Game 1 of tonight's World Series opener pitting the Royals against the Giants. He's said he likes to root for the underdog and has been a Royals fan for some 20 years. When he visited KC in August, he was invited to throw out the first pitch at a game. During his stay, the team went 9-1, including a three-game sweep of the Giants.

Larry King is getting ready to do it for the fifth time with Deanna Lund, who he met two months ago. His last marriage - which didn't last long and ended in an extremely messy divorce with the lady getting an undisclosed settlement - was to gal-round-our-town Julia King. The talkmeister, who we hear sprung for a major rock, says he and his current blonde, who starred in the '60s TV series "Land of Giants," were fixed up by Connie Stevens. They're planning an engagement blast in L.A. on April 21 but no wedding date has been set. "It was socko from the start.

For Thomas and Frances Duthie, the road to royalty began with a few letters. Seated in their Spring House Estates apartment, amid breathtaking photographs of their world travels, elaborately painted cloths, and exotic statuettes, the retired couple carefully sorted through sheets of stationery bearing the gold seal of the king and queen of Jordan. Tonight, at 7:30 at the Ambler library, the Duthies will present a slide show, with music, of their 1998 journey at King Hussein's invitation.

Mike Bibby is paid a king's ransom to be a King, but this season, he has not always received royal treatment, especially from one of the biggest stars in basketball. When Bibby signed a seven-year, $80 million contract in August with the Sacramento Kings, it placed him in the NBA's high-salary neighborhood, even though the 6-foot-1 point guard had yet to make his first all-star team. Recently, after he was invited to play for the U.S. team that will attempt to qualify this summer for the 2004 Olympics, Bibby had to endure insults from none other than Shaquille O'Neal, whose Los Angeles Lakers beat the Kings in a riveting seven-game Western Conference championship series last spring.

They've built bigger and glitzier ships since 2004, when the Queen Mary 2 made its debut amid a blizzard of hoopla, hailing it as the largest, costliest, most luxurious, fastest cruise ship afloat. Take it from a veteran cruiser who came off a four-nation Scandinavian journey on the 2,600-passenger Cunard Cruise Line flagship last summer: A successor to the retired, 39-year-old, trailblazing Queen Elizabeth 2, she's holding her own against the megaship competitors that came after her. Billed as the "Scandinavian Explorer," our cruise was a sellout, and explore interesting Scandinavian sites we did during 11 days of clear, warm, picture-perfect weather.

LOOKS LIKE A national tryout for NBC 10 anchor/reporter Aditi Roy , who will spend the summer in Los Angeles working for NBC News. She'll be there from June 27 to Sept. 5. If this story sounds familiar, it's because last year NBC 10's Kristen Welker also was tapped for the national stage, and spent a summer in Burbank, before being promoted full-time to NBC News. Although Roy's summer gig isn't being billed as a tryout, it certainly seems that way, and NBC News President Steve Capus is known to have a soft spot for NBC 10. The Warminster native and Temple grad spent several years at the station in the 1980s.

ATLANTA - One lesson from Armando Galarraga's near-perfect game Wednesday night? It isn't enough for a pitcher to be flawless. Every one else must be flawless, too, from the players in the field to the umpires on the basepaths to the umpire behind home plate. So when Ruben Amaro Jr. was given an opportunity to gloat a bit in the wake of Roy Halladay's perfect game against the Marlins last Saturday, he declined. "Shoot, it's no secret," said the Phillies' general manager, who made the difficult decision to trade for Halladay and trade away postseason star Cliff Lee last December.

This has been a frantic but exciting time for Jon Lieber. He flew home to Mobile, Ala., to watch the birth of his son, Jonah Kyle, on June 1. He returned to Philadelphia to pitch last Sunday, then went back to Alabama before he rejoined the team in Kansas City on Friday. Things kept moving quickly last night at Kauffman Stadium. Lieber threw a three-hit shutout in a 4-0 victory over the Kansas City Royals. It's not often that a night game ends in daylight, but Lieber made that happen as the Phillies cruised from start to finish in just 2 hours, 10 minutes.

Pennsylvania Ballet's opening-night performance of Sleeping Beauty was just that - a beauty. Clocking in near three hours (with two intermissions), Sleeping Beauty closes the company's season on a very classical note. It is a lush ballet with a full corps, more than 30 solo parts, dozens of colorful costumes and gorgeous scenery. Marius Petipa's legendary choreography to Tchaikovsky's famous score is supplemented with additional steps and staging by Janek Schergen, who danced with Pennsylvania Ballet in the 1970s and '80s.

Philadelphia society had never seen such excitement. The streets and sidewalks outside the Academy of Music teemed with hundreds of people straining to catch a glimpse of the royal party. Spectators watched elegant carriages pull up along Broad Street and drop off passengers: women in fluffy ball gowns and sparkling jewelry, and men in top hats, black suits, and white kid gloves. But the real attraction was Britain's Prince of Wales - the future Edward VII - who arrived about 8 p.m., "attired as a private gentleman without ribbon or order," according to newspaper accounts.
