This may be Charm City, but the PR outfit promoting Prince Edward's visit wasn't sure the Baltimore press corps had the polish to cover royalty. So IMRE took it upon itself to play Henry Higgins to newsroom Eliza Doolittles. "Royal Protocol: The general rule is that on first meeting the salutation is 'Your Royal Highness' and thereafter 'Sir,'" reporters were instructed via email. (I'm wondering if Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's office sent the prince a similar primer, with a "Don't call me 'Stephanie '" advisory.

Prince Edward -- 7 th in line to the British throne, youngest child of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, 48-year-old kid brother to Prince Charles, Prince Andrew and Princess Anne -- comes to Baltimore Tuesday NOT to discuss his biggest claim to fame, that he's also father of a 7-year-old royal wedding bridesmaid. HRH The Prince Edward, as he is formally known, won’t be discussing the little bridesmaid, Lady Louise Windsor, or the royal wedding at all, as my colleague Erica Green learned.

Prince Edward Islanders have a popular greeting, "Come home from away?" The simple question reveals two key insights into islanders' psyches. First, that this is home -- not just a place, but a life with deep roots. Secondly, that everything else is away, for there is a sense of escape about this emerald isle adrift in the Gulf of St. Lawrence above New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.Summer travelers to this diminutive Canadian province (only slightly larger than Delaware) can abandon their cares at homespun country inns set against a backdrop of misty shores, thick forests and leafy green fields.

There is majesty here, but the usual rules on travel destinations don't quite apply to Prince Edward Island. The one major historical site -- Province House in Charlottetown -- is a place where, on the record, nothing actually took place. The creation of a nation called "Canada" got its start on the second floor, but as an idea, not as legislation or resolution or a declaration of anything. That came later. The island's two "cities" are hardly cities. Charlottetown's population is slightly over 30,000 soaking wet. In Kansas, Summerside, the other "city," would be just another dot. There is no famous geyser or mountain or cape on Prince Edward Island.

CHARLOTTETOWN, Prince Edward Island - Laura Robinson, professor of English, arrived at last month's Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences with a bombshell to toss among the literary cogitations. The title of her scholarly paper, presented at the Alberta conference, told it all: "Bosom Buddies: Lesbian Desire in L. M. Montgomery's Anne Books." That's Anne, as in Anne Shirley, as in "Anne of Green Gables," the Canadian classic that generations of readers have innocently supposed to be a straightforward tale of a plucky, homely, effusively romantic red-haired girl coming of age on Prince Edward Island in the late 1800s.

BORDEN, Prince Edward Island -- Prince Edward Island always has defined itself as a place apart from the rest of the world. The people who live here refer to it simply as The Island, and divide themselves into "Islanders" -- those born here -- and "CFAs," which stands for "Come From Away."The rust-colored hills furrowed with potato plants and the clapboard houses fronted with wide, covered porches seem unchanged from 100 years ago. Much of the ambience stems from the difficulty of getting here: There's the little airport near the capital of Charlottetown and two ferry routes, only one of which runs all year.

CHARLOTTETOWN, Prince Edward Island - I am not the hand-clappin', knee-slappin', foot-tappin' sort but unexpectedly found myself engaging in those behaviors on Prince Edward Island, a destination that sings to the heart and soothes the soul. The peaceful little island, smallest of all Canada's provinces, is just north of the much better-known and more accessible Nova Scotia and is linked to New Brunswick by the Confederation Bridge. Only 140 miles long and from 4 to 40 miles wide, the island, known as PEI, might seem like an easy destination to cover in a week's time.

Morgan State is taking a "wait-and-see approach" on men's basketball coach Todd Bozeman, who was charged with two misdemeanors in the aftermath of a Saturday argument with the management of a Farmville, Va., restaurant. Bozeman told The Sun on Monday that he would return to Prince Edward County to respond to the charges. Messages for Jim Ennis, the Prince Edward County attorney handling the matter, were not returned.

LONDON - Prince William graduated with honors from St. Andrews University in Scotland yesterday in a traditional ceremony attended by his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and father, Prince Charles. One of only three British royals in recent history to graduate from university, the 23-year-old prince earned a Scottish master's degree, the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor's degree, in geography after four years of study. He achieved the second-highest honors, surpassing the performance of his father and uncle, Prince Edward, who received lesser honors at Cambridge University.

LONDON -- Once again, here is the story of the vain, love-struck king, who gave up his throne for the plain-looking, twice-divorced woman from Baltimore.The saga of King Edward VIII and Wallis Warfield Simpson has been written, filmed and acted nearly every way possible over almost 60 years. But yesterday, the royal love story of the century was told with a twist when Prince Edward -- Edward VIII's grand-nephew -- unveiled his own take on the couple's love during a media screening of a two-part television documentary.

Washington. -- Tuesday I got a $10 million shock that reminded me just how indelible the passions of racial prejudice are in America. I read that a 76-year-old Georgia tycoon, J.B. Fuqua, had donated ten million bucks to ''bring people together'' in racially traumatized Prince Edward County, Virginia.My astonishment was that Mr. Fuqua gave the money to the Prince Edward Academy, a veritable social cancer for two generations. He gave a fortune to a little private academy that symbolizes the ultimate in white resistance to Brown v. Board of Education, the 1954 Supreme Court decision that outlawed racial segregation in public schools!

A chance to do more for aged and disabled The city's recent dismissal of its director for the Commission on Aging and Retirement Education (CARE) signals a changing of the guard that needs to happen for Baltimore to move forward with a new vision for a quality-driven, well-managed, community-based system of care for the city's 100,000 disabled elderly residents ("Mayor fires 2, hints at more terminations," July 4). Mayor Martin O'Malley now has an opportunity to create within CARE a culture that is more responsive and enhances the ability of families to care for dependent loved ones in the community for as long as possible.
