WITH ALL the trouble and discussion caused by the Friday's wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, they're not postponing it - even if it conflicts with the pope's funeral. In line with Vatican protocol a funeral for the pope, who died Saturday, must be held sometime between Wednesday and Friday. The College of Cardinals is expected to set the date today. If the royal wedding is at the same time as the papal funeral, there's likely to be another funeral Sunday for the BBC exec who has to decide which one to televise.

If you didn't get enough pageantry last week at the wedding of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, a further fix is on the way. Crown Publishers has shipped 25,000 copies of the book Invitation to a Royal Wedding to U.S. bookstores, and they'll go on sale next week. If you think that's fast book- making, consider that the same volume, the work of Britain's Greenwich House, was on sale in the Isles just two days after the wedding. The book, which will sell for $9.98, is 120 pages of full-color photos of not only the wedding, but also the careers and courtship of the couple.

When Prince Charles emerged from the Windsor town hall yesterday, newly wedded to the woman who has bewitched him since 1972, he stood for a moment on the cobblestones and glanced at the street tableau. He looked characteristically pained. This is what he saw: Hundreds of cameras whirring, blinking and flashing from the balconies of pubs and hotels. Thousands of British monarchy fans and gawking foreign tourists, standing 10 deep at the barricades, most of whom had weathered the three-hour wait with coffee, water and Mars bars.

LONDON - Scotland Yard is bracing for all types of security threats to the royal wedding - ranging from terrorists and anarchists to anti-monarchists and other protesters. Monday's declaration came after rogue groups disrupted a peaceful demonstration Saturday against Britain's harshest spending cuts since World War II. About 250,000 protesters flooded London, but small groups broke away, hurling ammonia-filled bulbs, paint, and wooden planks at officers and smashing windows near Trafalgar Square.

"Tell me, Princess, do you miss bodysurfing?" With that question (which I know no one had ever asked Princess Grace of Monaco, the former Grace Kelly of Germantown), she stifled a smile and most likely wanted to burst out laughing, but princesses don't do that - at least not in front of a commoner like me, from Bryn Mawr. It was February 1972, and I was a guest at the wedding of Prince Rainier's niece, Christine-Alix de Massy, and my boyfriend's roommate, Wayne Knecht. My boyfriend, Joseph Evancich, was the best man at this wedding in Monaco's Royal Palace.

Just when we were about to give up entirely on royalty, joyous news has arrived from Japan regarding the betrothal of Crown Prince Naruhito to a Harvard-trained diplomat named Masako Owada. The crown prince is 32 - the age of Britain's Prince Charles when he chose his lovely bride. But whereas Princess Diana was an unformed lass of 19, Ms. Owada is a confident career woman of 29, a magna cum laude Harvard grad who went on to study at Tokyo University and Oxford. (As if to fulfill Western stereotypes, she is an expert on semiconductors.

Tattle may need a 5 a.m. wakeup call for the morning of June 19 - the date reportedly set for Britain's next royal wedding. (That trans-Atlantic time difference can be a drag.) Of course, if Prince Edward and his intended, public-relations consultant Sophie Rhys-Jones, have their way, there may not be a global telecast of the festivities, as there have been for other, splashier royal nuptials. The twosome have been making noises about wanting a relatively small-scale wedding.

TATTLE has not yet received our invitation to the royal wedding, but the Associated Press has graciously provided rules of etiquette so we don't embarrass our employer. No. 1: Don't be late. "The queen should be the very last person to arrive at the church before the bride and her attendants," said wedding planner and etiquette adviser Sarah Hayward . "At most weddings, guests are asked to arrive around 20 minutes before the ceremony, but the royal wedding will obviously have several important guests and very high levels of security so give yourself plenty of time to get there.

LONDON - British police have rejected a request by a small band of radical Islamists to stage a protest outside Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal wedding April 29, Scotland Yard said Tuesday. Assistant Police Commissioner Lynne Owens said Muslims Against Crusades would not be allowed to demonstrate outside Westminster Abbey, and "ongoing discussions" were under way as to whether the group would be allowed to hold a protest nearby. Police also said they were negotiating with the far-right English Defense League, which has said it plans to hold a shadow protest if the Muslim group's application was successful.

LONDON - Outside the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital, the global media hordes on Royal Baby Watch have marked their turf with duct tape and stepladders. But starved for material in a world where Mother Nature and Buckingham Palace are the last two holdouts from the 24-hour news cycle, loitering reporters trying to set a tone of breathless anticipation have resorted to interviewing each other. Perhaps nothing could be more appropriate. As Prince William and his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, prepare to carve out a new life for their budding family in the glare of the spotlight, the press is poised to be a major part of the story.

Wedding headpieces have taken a fascinating turn. Instead of donning tiaras, brides are choosing whimsical accessories like jeweled feathers to place in a mess of curls or a gleaming headband to push back a pixie. "Headpieces — or fascinators — are sooo big with brides right now," said Patricia A. Grooms, owner of Vows Timeless Bridal Millinery on Fourth Street. "There is a lot of interest in them now because they look great with period dresses that reflect fashions from the 1920s, '30s and '40s.

Question: Never thought this would be such a big deal till it happened to me. My sister is pregnant with her first baby, and she just e-mailed asking me how I would feel if she used the name I have been saving in the event I have a son. (I mentioned it to her a few years ago.) My husband and I want kids in the next few years and I really, really want there to be an acceptable way to ask my sister to choose a different name. Am I the baby here? Answer: Well, she is asking you how you'd feel.

Charles Price 2d, 80, a former U.S. ambassador to Britain who coordinated friendly relations between President Ronald Reagan and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, died Thursday at his home in Indian Wells, Calif. Mr. Price was friends with the Reagans and Thatcher, whom he worked with in the aftermath of the 1988 Lockerbie airliner bombing in Scotland. Mr. Price toured the crash site and attended memorials with the prime minister for the 259 victims. Mr. Price also took part in treaty talks between the two nations as they sought to deal with the drug trade and Britain's fight with the Irish Republican Army.

Wednesday night, as the world knows, was sacred in the Church of Baseball. But it was also a monumental media moment. Baseball: It was the last day of the season, with much in the balance. Four games were crucial; three turned out to be historic blockbusters. Media: Millions sat with TV remotes in one hand, flipping among numerous channels - ESPN, MLB, CSN, YES, TBS - and handheld devices in the other hand, using phone apps, such as MLB.com At Bat 11, following four games at once, with a variety of real-time commentators, blogs, charts, graphs, and play-by-play accounts.

Iraq to buy 36 U.S. fighter jets BAGHDAD - Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on Saturday signaled continuing military cooperation with the United States, doubling the size of a planned purchase of U.S. fighter jets, but he sidestepped the crucial question of whether American troops would be asked to stay past a Dec. 31 withdrawal deadline. Maliki told reporters the Iraqi government planned to buy 36 F-16 fighter jets to help its fledgling air force defend the country. Baghdad had postponed plans to buy 18 of the multimillion-dollar jets, diverting almost $1 billion of the money to buy food for impoverished regions in a response to rising antigovernment protests.

MONACO - Charlene Wittstock has not one, but two tough acts to follow. As the future princess of Monaco and wife to longtime bachelor Prince Albert II, the Zimbabwe-born, South Africa-raised former Olympic swimmer is to succeed Grace Kelly, whose 1956 wedding to Prince Rainier III is still widely seen as the gold standard for royal nuptials. And as if the blue-eyed Hollywood beauty-turned-beloved princess didn't cast a long enough shadow, Albert's long-awaited marriage to Wittstock comes on the heels of the royal wedding of the decade, Kate Middleton's union with Britain's Prince William.

Question: My son is getting married in four months. He and his fiancee have lived together for eight years and have a baby daughter. The mother of the bride (MOTB), along with the bride, have a huge wedding planned, with over 200 guests. MOTB has pretty much left me out of all the planning (I live about 10 hours away), with the exception of this: She's asked me to pay for the rehearsal dinner, the limo ride, and one hour of open bar at the reception. MOTB knows I lost my job almost a year ago, collected unemployment, and now work a 16-hour-per-week job at minimum wage.

Topping this week's DVD releases are an animated tale for the family and what could be the launch of a sci-fi franchise. Gnomeo and Juliet, Grade C-minus: Two gnomes from the opposite side of the fence fall in love. James McAvoy and Emily Blunt provide their voices. It took 11 years to make the animated take on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet using garden gnomes. It feels more like it was made in days. The script lacks originality, the Elton John soundtrack feels forced, and the characters are more creepy than cuddly.
