"Black people love me!" - with Søren Pind in 2010 in Washington, DC.
So Mary heads off to Washington, DC to repeat her 2010 visit to the Crystal City mall for sale shopping which is what triggered Daisy to send the Dumblederfs off to South Korea to expedit the "Charles and Diana effect". Scroo yoo, Daisy and this so-called Danish economic recession! Mary's not going to let Maxima be the only JCrew princess in Europe, and if judging by the articles published on the occasion of Mary's 40th birthday, if the Empress indeed has no clothes, she'll need to buy some! Outta way! Oh, maybe she'll go say hi to The Mary Fund's Helle Østergaard who will be one of the conference speakers.
