John Galliano may have popped over to London to see Barbra Streisand last week, but his late-night behavior left some Englanders less than pleased. The designer and his gang of models in minis were alledgedly asked to leave the hot new bar The Atlantic for swearing, putting their feet on the tables and running around the room. Presumably Galliano -- in a tight Union Jack T-shirt, white leather jacket and tight pants -- didn't perform the same antics when he was talking to Streisand about designing some clothes for her.

Prince Charles hosted a cocktail party the other night in the state apartments of St. James's Palace for the Prague Heritage Fund, which helps restore that city's architectural treasures.

"I sometimes have regretted it since," said Charles about founding the fund. "But it has something to do with my training at a school in a remote area of Scotland, where we were taught to take the initiative."

The several hundred guests included Marguerite and Mark Littman, Jerry Hall, Isabel Goldsmith, Foreign Secretary Douglas Hurd, Jocelyn Stevens and Vivien Duffield, pianist Murray Perahia and Lord Rothschild.

The cocktail party was the beginning of celebrations that culminate on the weekend of June 3 in Prague with a concert conducted by Sir Georg Solti, and a visit to the library of the Strahov Monastery, which is rarely opened to the public.

The Prince's initiative has caused other countries to ask him for similar help. He said the ambassador from Slovakia has asked him to visit some buildings in that country, and he soon is off to St. Petersburg to do the same.

Princess Diana isn't the only royal with a penchant for French designers. When David and Serena Linley come to New York this week, she'll be dressed in Herve Leger. The Viscountess made a special trip to Paris recently where she picked out about a dozen outfits from the design house

The wardrobe is for the Viscountess's trip to the U.S., where she'll help her husband launch his collection of humidor boxes for Alfred Dunhill. They'll be in New York on Wednesday, where they'll attend a cocktail reception at the Dunhill store on Park Avenue and a dinner dance at Glorious Food hosted by Blaine and Robert Trump. The couple will also make stops in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Francisco to promote the boxes. When the Linleys return to England, Serena will step into another Leger creation: an ensemble made especially for her for the Ascot races.
