The Prince of Wales, having given his silly younger son Prince Harry, 17, a good hard spanking, so to speak, or a deserved kick in the butt, depending on how you look at it, is looking forward to pleasanter things. Like the annual gathering in London the week of June 17-23 of his Prince of Wales Foundation based in Washington D.C. It gives him a chance to greet the group of good-looking, generous Americans who support the foundation that in turn supports the British and American charities that are the Prince's favorites.

For those who remark that, not to criticize, members of the group and millions of others everywhere dip into the celebratory champagne from time to time, and do many of the same things as silly Harry, so why be so hard on the kid? Well, keep in mind, almost all of them are over 17. Way over -- and all of them adorable.

Also way over is the three-year romance between Peter Phillips, the attractive 24-year-old son of Princess Anne and Queen Elizabeth's grandson, and American Elizabeth Iorio, 26, the daughter of a rich Massachusetts pharmaceutical family. She is on the United States Equestrian Team and met Peter in 1998 when she was being coached by his father, Captain Mark Phillips, Princess Anne's first husband. Ain't nobody horsier than these people.

The young lovers had just moved into Peter's million-dollar flat in North London. Maybe that was a mistake. Elizabeth is the one who called the whole thing off saying, for publication, that she was not exactly slamming the door but that Petesie had a lot of growing up to do. (Well, she is two years older). She's moved to North Carolina to continue her passion for riding, and Peter is trying to forget about it all working as an executive for the Jaguar Formulas One racing team. There are still those around who are hoping for a happy ending on the theory that love is lovelier the second time around. Back to the stables.

Glamorous Salma Hayek, fresh from finishing "Frida," the upcoming Miramax movie that tells us maybe everything we ever wanted to know about the wonderfully exotic, wonderfully weird Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, will present an award at Amnesty International USA's Media Spotlight Awards on Jan. 28 at the Chelsea Piers. Amnesty International, the human rights organization, is celebrating its 40th anniversary, and everyone is ever so excited. You will be thrilled to hear that Hayek has removed the unibrow she wore in the flick the better to emulate la Kahlo, whose nonstop stretch of coal-black hair that extended like beetles over her eyes never, but never, came in contact with tweezers. Instead, Salma will wear one of her sexy trademark outfits at the party. Just knew you'd be glad.
