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.

NEW DELHI -- India named its first female president yesterday after weeks of acrimonious campaigning that touched on sensitive issues such as political corruption, partisan gamesmanship and women's rights. Through ballots cast by federal and state legislators, Pratibha D. Patil comfortably won election to the largely ceremonial post, making this country the world's largest to claim a female head of state. The last woman to serve that function for India was Queen Victoria, during the days of the British Raj. A lawyer by training, Patil, 72, is a relative unknown on the national stage.

When she took the throne of England in 1837 at the age of 18, Queen Victoria gave birth to an era -- a style of architecture named for her because of the elaborate and ornate structures which were built during her reign.It is an architectural style of great detail, from the intricate gingerbread woodwork on wraparound porches to the magnificent iron finials perched atop witches' hat turrets, Victoriana is a genre with many enthusiasts."Victorian architecture" is a bit of a catch-all term used to describe several different styles, and tends to include buildings constructed between 1865 and the very early 1900s.

WE ARE not amused," said Queen Victoria. She only said it to send Prince Albert right up the wall. "You know I can't stand it when you lay that royal we on me," said Prince Albert."It is not our fault, dear Albert, that we are a royal we whilst you, being a mere prince consort, are but an I," observed Queen Victoria.Poor vexed Albert knew what un-amused her. It was baseball. Prince Albert's passion for baseball was a royal scandal. It had shocked drawing rooms from Belgravia to Cowes, where the regatta was held, as Queen Victoria had to remind Prince Albert every time she said, "You and we must rise and go to Cowes now."

The dental museum in Baltimore had long coveted these royal picks, mirrors, scrapers and scalers."They rank in importance with George Washington's teeth," museum director Ben Z. Swanson said in Baltimore, where he and others participated in the bidding by telephone.The dental museum already owns a pair of the first president's fake choppers.

IN THE city, it is only acceptable for a man to wear flip-flops if he has just come from a pedicure and he's still damp. But seriously, folks, flip-flops are for the beach or maybe for washing the car or spaniel. They are not the next big thing. They are the last sad thing on the road to stylistic surrender," writes GQ's Glenn O'Brien.

"Welcome to my office," Capt. Paul Wright said as he opened the security door to the bridge of the Queen Victoria. Through the expanse of windows, the ocean seemed endless, glimmering in the sun. It was, as it turned out, the calm before the storm. The captain, a genial chap from Cornwall, England, was soon laughing about the rumors aboard Cunard's newest ocean liner. No, he assured me, no one had been lost overboard. And had I seen the reports in the British tabloids blaming every glitch on this, the ship's second voyage, on the "Curse of Camilla," Prince Charles' wife, the first nonmonarch to christen a Cunard Queen in nearly 75 years?

There's a certain stillness in the middle of the ocean. It's January, and my wife and I are aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2, in the company of numerous ship buffs and historians chronicling the ship's last world cruise. Sailing side by side with us is Cunard's newest ship, the Queen Victoria. For a few hours about midway through the trans-Atlantic crossing, the ocean liner loses satellite contact with European news channels. No, the ship isn't lost at sea, not in this wireless age, and the televisions still show movies, lectures and the view from the bridge (the one the captain sees)

We're not all presidential material. But with the bucks, we can live like the president. Or at least pretend. The Resolute Desk, a present from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford Hayes in 1879, has been the desk for every President since Hayes -- except for Johnson, Nixon and Ford -- and now replicas are available to the affluent public, for the hefty price of $10,000. The regal desk, weighing 500 pounds and measuring 72 inches in length by 48 inches in width by 31 inches in height, includes functional drawers and cupboard doors that open from both sides and an attached brass plate inscribed with the original message from Queen Victoria.

She creates dollhouses as if they were real homes, but scaled so each inch represents a foot. She makes tiny two-by-fours and roof trusses, wires 12-volt electrical outlets behind wallboards of acid-free mat board, installs stone fireplaces and ceiling fans.

A view of the palaceA new pedestrian viewing area was completed last month outside Buckingham Palace in London. The $3.8 million project involved the rerouting of traffic to create a triangular haven for tourists between the palace and the Queen Victoria Memorial. New traffic lights and more pedestrian crossings have also been installed.The changes were prompted by a report last year by the Royal Parks Review Group, which highlighted the conflict between traffic and pedestrians. It described the chaos around the palace as a "national disgrace."

LONDON -- On Jan. 22, 1901, Queen Victoria -- 81, 4-feet, 11-inches -- expired in the royal residence at Osborne, on the Isle of Wight. An age ended. Her 64-year reign was the longest in the 1,000-year history of Britain's monarchy. To equal it, Elizabeth II, now in the 49th year of her reign, would have to live to 91 and remain on the throne until 2016. Given the example of the Queen Mum, who turned a robust 100 in August, she may make it. Ascending the throne at age 18 in 1837, Victoria presided over an expansion of the British Empire to an unprecedented size.
