Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, recently celebrated his 60th birthday, and crossed a certain historical meridian. He is now firmly in second place playing the waiting game for the throne that has been occupied by his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, since 1952, which currently makes her the third-longest-reigning monarch in English history. The record for waiting is still held by King William IV, who was 64 when he succeeded his elder brother, George IV, in 1830, who in turn was succeeded upon his death by his 18-year-old niece, Alexandrina Victoria - Queen Victoria - in 1837.

LONDON - The office of Charles, the Prince of Wales, announced last night that it would investigate allegations about the royal intervention that ended the trial of Princess Diana's butler, Paul Burrell, Nov. 1 and subsequent charges that the prince covered up an alleged homosexual rape by a top aide and that his courtiers sold royal gifts. The rare look into the goings-on behind palace doors appeared to be an attempt to stem the tide of charge and innuendo against the royal family in recent weeks that has threatened to wash away the goodwill earned during the jubilee celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II's 50 years on the throne.

The wedding of Crown Prince Naruhito to the commone Masako Owada apparently thrills most Japanese as the wedding of the Prince of Wales to the commoner Diana Spencer delighted most Britons in 1981. Yet the more noticed comparison is the esteem of the monarchy in Japan against its growing disrepute in Britain. Not to mention the apparent happiness of the Japanese newlyweds contrasted to the demonstrated unhappiness of their jaded British counterparts.All monarchy is myth, the apparent government in the notion of Walter Bagehot rather than the real government.

It will offer only items that have been granted a royal warrant.The announcement of the new venture, which will operate under parent called the Eclectic American Catalog Co., Ltd., came at a champagne reception at the Ritz.

WASHINGTON - So, Tiger Woods is human after all. The worst playing day of his professional career helped him to lose the British Open. Big time. I wonder if his conscience was bothering him. Of course, the stormy weather was a major factor. Nothing takes you off your game like a small hurricane in your face. Yet, his opponent, Ernie Els, managed to shoot a 72, while Tiger fell way behind the leaders with a miserable, for him, 81. As I, a Tiger fan, sadly watched his game look almost as pathetic as mine, I could not help but wonder how much another event might still be weighing on his mind.

Poor Charles; he can bed Camilla but he can't wed her - not if he wants to be king.That was the verdict of 67,000 Britons out of 100,000 who responded to a BBC poll that asked if the Prince of Wales, 48, should assume the throne if he marries Camilla Parker Bowles, 50, his longtime mistress.The very personal decision carries potentially grave consequences for the British monarchy, weakened by the soap opera scandals involving Queen Elizabeth II's children - especially the Charles-Diana-Camilla triangle.

London -- Prince Charles wants to peddle his cookies in America.Actually the prince is unlikely to call his Duchy Originals biscuits "cookies." Cookie is as American as Famous Amos. Even chocolate chip cookies, like stretch limousines, are an American import.The prince's cookies, uh, biscuits, are hard, crisp and thoroughly British oaten or gingered wafers.The prince, of course, doesn't personally pop the dough in the oven to make his Duchy Originals. They're a product of his Duchy of Cornwall and his interest in organic farming.

Boston -- It's not that I held Prince Charles on a pedestal, let alone a throne. Polo is not my sport and the Windsors are not my kind of folks. The ''royals'' always remind me of character actors at a Great Britain theme park.But who would have guessed that the crown prince would abdicate his country's last lingering claim to the stiff upper lip? Now, in a documentary being aired there, here and everywhere, he confesses royal infidelity.A broadcast journalist asks the Prince of Wales if he tried to be ''faithful and honorable'' when he was married.
