It is gratifying that Queen Elizabeth II has maintained her interest in the Maryland sports scene through a long and glorious reign. The last time she took in a game, 43,000 fans cheered wildly as she and Prince Philip, in President Eisenhower's plastic-topped limo, circled the field at Byrd Stadium in College Park before watching the Maryland-North Carolina football showdown. It was Oct. 19, 1957.The queen took her seat between Gov. Theodore R. McKeldin of the host state and Gov. Luther Hodges of the visitors.

It was Queen Elizabeth who made me a foreign correspondent. Before she turned up, my newspaper career had consisted of listening to Baltimore policemen reminisce about great hangings and covering bush-league statesmen deploring the state of the world. I had also covered night rewrite: stickups, accidents, floods, fires, murders, from supper time to 2 in the morning. It wasn't a dead-end job, but neither was there a lot to look forward to except retirement after 40 years of good behavior.

QUITE WHAT Princess Diana was up to when confessing to the BBC television that her husband, Prince Charles, might not want to be king of England and that she wished to be "queen of people's hearts" is unclear to the hundred of millions with whom she shared these intimacies.She was at least showing that she was better at manipulating public opinion than her estranged husband, the current Prince of Wales. As mother of the royal heir, Prince William (next in line after his dad), she might have been negotiating leverage with her mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth.

LONDON -- A woman with a noble title is not supposed to dish royal dirt.But Sarah Bradford, the Viscountess Bangor, has done that and more. She has researched, written and publicized the book of the moment, "Elizabeth, A Biography of Her Majesty the Queen." It's a purported tell-all account of Queen Elizabeth's life and her relationships with the strong-willed man she loves, and the royal children who have been so notoriously unlucky in love.The book, which hits British stores today, has been serialized in The Times of London and its contents picked up and transformed into banner headline stories in the tabloid newspapers.

Like a lot of children her age, Skylar Kagan, 5, loves to dress up. She owns five tiaras and a handful of superhero outfits. She and her twin brother, Matthew, so enjoy disguises that their parents, Jonathan and Marnie Kagan of Annapolis, keep two trunks stuffed with costumes. She went as Wonder Woman last Halloween. "Skylar just never misses an opportunity to become somebody else," Marnie Kagan says. This weekend, the kindergartener will have a chance to blend the magic of make-believe with U.S. history when she and other girls don gowns and crowns, visit the William Paca House, and share curtsies, tea and table talk with Queen Anne, the British monarch for whom Skylar's hometown was named 317 years ago. Well, not Queen Anne exactly.

There have been two indisputable Emmy Award- caliber performances on TV so far this year. The first was by Edie Falco as Carmela Soprano willing her husband, Tony (James Gandolfini), back to life as he lay seriously wounded in a hospital bed during weeks 2 and 3 of HBO's The Sopranos. The second arrives Saturday night on HBO with Helen Mirren in a dazzling turn as Queen Elizabeth I, the legendary 16th-century ruler who reunited England and became one of the nation's most beloved leaders during her 45 years on the throne.

Jim Panopoulos, home on a 30-day furlough, was in a North Avenue movie theater when the action outside of the theater turned greater than that on the screen. Jerry Zarend was visiting relatives in Mount Clemens, Mich., when news of the Japanese surrender raced through the then rural suburb north of Detroit. Milton Bates, serving with the Army in Europe, thought of only one thing when he heard the news: "I'm going home." These are some of the reminiscences that reached me after my column last week on the end of World War II, when a war-weary nation let go in a coast-to-coast explosion of joy tinged with sadness for those who didn't live to see victory.

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.

ABOARD THE QUEEN ELIZABETH 2 - The last two weeks of Robert Muller's journey aboard the world's most famous ocean liner he was dead. Which is just the way he wanted it. And that is just the way his widow, Beatrice Muller, hopes to go, too. Her husband died at age 85 aboard the QE2, as it is known, as it sailed off Bermuda in 1999, then was transported in the ship's mortuary to Southampton, England, where he was cremated and, eventually, buried at sea....

It is only ceremony, ritual without much substance. But the visit of Queen Elizabeth II to Moscow, the first by a British monarch ever, meant a great deal to both Britons and Russians.It symbolized the effort of two major powers on the periphery of Europe to overcome 77 years of hostility and distrust to bring their relations closer than ever as each seeks to participate in Europe as never before. That's why the British government of Prime Minister John Major encouraged the queen to go; why Russian President Boris Yeltsin of Russia took so much time out of a crisis-ridden week.

Lady Oona was the daughter of playwright Eugene O'Neill and the fourth wife of Chaplin, the internationally renowned comic hero. Together they had eight children. Lady Oona acquired her title when Chaplin was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1975. Although Lady Oona's father strongly objected to their relationship, Chaplin frequently described their marriage as "perfect."

Want to pore over a letter written by A.A. Milne? Or, instead of a letter from the creator of Winnie the Pooh, would you prefer a note from Queen Elizabeth I? How about riffling through an Elizabethan vicar's diary? Or perusing a manuscript handwritten by Mark Twain? You are invited to do so, as part of an exhibition of 100 plays, poems, books, letters, warrants, deeds and receipts spanning 700 years and on display through June 8 at Washington's Folger Shakespeare Library. Titled "The Pen's Excellencie": Treasures from the Manuscript Collection, the exhibit breathes life into historical figures.

LONDON - She became queen when Winston Churchill was prime minister, food was rationed and the British Empire was crumbling along with its influence. Harry S. Truman was president of the United States. Stalin was running the Soviet Union. Mao Tse-tung was less then three years into his communist grip on China. In Britain, it was an era when housewives spent a quarter of their 15-hour workday in the kitchen, one in three households didn't have a bath, and only a few hundred thousand television sets existed.
