If and when Princess Stephanie of Monaco marries her former bodyguard, Daniel Ducret, the father of her one and two-thirds babies -- yes, the second one's well on the way -- her father, Prince Rainier, who can't stand the man, hopes it will be a civil ceremony, not the church wedding Monaco's Archbishop Joseph Sardou is said to be pushing. If Stephanie married in the church and later decided Ducret was a weenie, her only way out would be an annulment. Just like sister Caroline. Friends say Rainier never again wants to go through the years of hell Caroline's annulment took. Some say if Stephanie goes the civil route, daddy will even come to the wedding. Just be sure to get him to the judge on time.

Is Elle Macpherson, the tall and terrific supermodel from Down Under, wearing a "spoken-for" ring from Tim Jeffries, who once had Koo Stark in a spoken-for situation? Whatever, Elle's swell in her movie debut as the sultry Sheela, a 1930s artist's model in "Sirens," wherein she shows up with nothing on. Not that it bothers her. She has been quoted as saying that for her nudity was absolutely no problem. "It's a very Australian thing," says she. "We're always nude or topless at the beach. When I grew up we had one bathroom shared among five people. No one ever thought twice about being nude." Just one little happy nekkid family without a towel-snapper in the bunch.

Speaking of models, Carla Bruni, said to have played a field which includes Mick Jagger, seems now to be in a permanent twosome with the young Swiss actor-director Vincent Perez, Jacqueline Bisset's one-time flame. There are only so many of those actor-directors to go around, but I don't care if you don't.

Princess Michael of Kent will lecture at the Metropolitan Museum on March 31 and April 7, and a lot of somebodies must want to hear what she has to say because both lectures were sold out before you can say she's-married-to-the-Queen's-first-cousin. Between lectures, Prince Michael will join her in Florida where they will stay with Aimee de Heeren and be entertained by Emilia and Pepe Fanjul, among others. Barbara Tapert will give a lunch at Mortimer's for the Princess on April 8, and the following weekend, Prince and Princess Michael, their children, Lord Frederick and Lady Gabriella Windsor, and Barbara and William Tapert will all take off for Fisher Island, Florida, for a little royal R&R.
