Madonna's Highland Fling

06/16/1998 at 12:00 AM EDT



There's big doings in Scotland today involving Madonna, 42, and Guy Ritchie, 32. No, not their wedding. That's expected tomorrow. Today in Dornoch, Scotland, the celebrity twosome is due to see their son, 4-month-old Rocco Ritchie, baptized inside the town's 13th-century cathedral (where tomorrow's wedding is also scheduled.) Among today's VIP guests, reports the Associated Press, will be a few dozen total strangers to the couple: the church's elders. These are described as parishioners with perfect attendance records. Without them there, church rules reportedly dictate, no ceremony is permitted to take place. Meanwhile, the town is said to be in a tizzy, overrun with members of the press and curious locals, especially school kids eager for a look at stars. Not that any secrets are being leaked. John Ritchie, 71, the father of groom-to-be Guy, admitted to AP that he's as clueless as anyone as to what is to take place either today or tomorrow. "I wouldn't dare ask," he said.
