Winner, winner, chicken dinner! Except replace chicken dinner with doughnut breakfast. After four weeks, the Rodgers Forge Elementary Walking School Bus Doughnut Challenge has concluded. And the winner is: the Heathfield South route. Led by Marianne Lohr, Michelle Dinsmore and Holly Storck, this route far and away surpassed the other routes - not only in number of "riders" (37) but in the number of adults who signed up to "drive" the bus (20). Word must have spread that the Heathfield South route won the contest, because on March 5, 20 kids showed up for their jelly-filled reward. And there was much rejoicing.

In Part Two of a five-part excerpt from "Behind Palace Doors: Marriage and Divorce in the House of Windsor" by Nigel Dempster and Peter Evans, Prince Charles' grandmother, the queen mother, maneuvers her grandson into marrying her protege, Lady Diana Spencer.Sacrifice is the essence of commitment, Charles' beloved grandmother, Elizabeth, had told him, just as firmly as she had told his mother that her work was "the rent for the room you occupy on earth." They were more than tracts she expected to be honored, it was the faith she shed: It was the resin that held the royal family together.

Weddings and TV seem made for each other. Long before Married by America, hitchings provided some series with basic premises (Brady Bunch, anyone?) but usually they've just been a way to bring in extra viewers. Here are some we watched: * Tiny Tim and Miss Vicki Budinger (The Tonight Show, 1969) -- It could have been a mean little sideshow. But Johnny Carson and company treated the occasion with respect. The result: a TV wedding as sweet as it was ridiculous. * Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles (1981)

The following editorial appeared in the Philadelphia Daily News on Monday:The princess is dead; long live the princess souvenir industry.In the year since the death of Princess Diana, clever capitalists the world over have invoked her image to sell candle holders, toilet seat covers, toilet brushes, air fresheners, a car breakdown kit, seat belts, compact discs and a colonic irrigation kit.In anticipation of a peak in the junk consumption, the Princess Diana...

Was Princess Diana murdered? And what key would that be in?These questions arise as "Die, Die, Diana," a new musical, prepares to open on at California's San Jose State University tomorrow. The production, described as an irreverent, proudly tasteless musical satire pushing the theory that Diana Spencer was assassinated, is getting attention from around the globe."Die, Die, Diana," by San Jose State professor Scott Sublett and composer Jef Labes, chronicles the last days of Diana. It features a cast of students as the British royal family and satirizes everything from Diana's divorce to her bulimia.

Today's nuptials of Britain's Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones will draw lots of coverage, but not the castle-load of attention that was given to the 1981 union of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.Far fewer networks will be offering live coverage of this royal wedding. Steep fees charged by the BBC to license the footage are being blamed for keeping at least some networks away, while a general sense of "So what!" is also to blame.ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN are expected to air coverage in their regular news programs, but only MSNBC, the Fox News Channel, the Learning Channel and BBC America plan to cover the event as it unfolds.

NOTHING MUCH CHANGED with the long-awaited announcement of a divorce between the Prince and Princess of Wales based on their 3 1/2 -year separation. Prince Charlesremains heir to the throne of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, and would be the first divorced British king since George I acceded in 1714.Charles' aunt and a brother are divorced; his divorced sister has remarried. The institution of marriage is even weaker in Britain than in the U.S. The myth has grown up that while the middle classes may ignore traditional morality, the royal family may not. In the golden age of monarchy, 'twas the other way round.

LONDON -- It may be the wedding of the decade, but the forthcoming nuptials between Prince Edward, the queen's youngest son, and Sophie Rhys-Jones, his career-woman fiance, will be decidedly more modest and modern than those of his brothers.In the 1980s, amid much pomp and splendor, Prince Charles and Diana Spencer were wed in London, in lofty St. Paul's Cathedral, and Prince Andrew and his wife, Sarah Ferguson, now divorced, married in the traditional royal house of prayer, Westminster Abbey.

[Paramount Home Video] Starring Keira Knightley, Ralph Fiennes Directed by Saul Dibb. $29.98, Blu-ray $39.99. ** dvds The Duchess, in stores Saturday, may be lovely to look at, but even Keira Knightley's best efforts can't shake up this curiously inert film, the tale of an 18th-century British lass who married into the aristocracy, only to find the marriage doomed her to a life of little more than servitude to her vain, pompous husband. Knightley, corseted and wigged beyond any reasonable measure, is Georgiana Spencer, who starts off thrilled that she is to be betrothed to the esteemed Duke of Devonshire.
