"Check out this back side, huh, boys? Let this shot go round the world!"
Madam La Comtesse de Monpezat was a willing participant in a Home Guards exercise on Bornholm this past weekend. A very royal Danish endeavor not unlike Marie's service in the Fire Brigade, Mary typically wears emerald shaped diamond or coloured stone earrings and brings along Caroline Heering as her babysitter. Naturally, this was an event that only the court's photographer was authorised to photograph, which means that there will be heavy Photoshopping to create cheekbones, flawless skin, one helluva scouse brow (KATE subtext, s'il vous plait!), no under-eye circles, and to add curves to a manly body in a manly uniform (contrast to Marie in a uniform with curves that can't quit!). Tough gig for some poor flunkie in the palace basement who must work through his tears of pain from the Before shots! This is pure palace propoganda. Poor Daisy, she really doesn't have much else to work with in terms of her oldest son and his wife-bot-thinggie. No wonder Mary keeps herself occupied with The MeMeMeMeMe Fund, saving The Poors by photographing them in their natural habitat, and new celebrity-seeking endeavors such as the horridly named "Global Poverty Festival" that Madam has just recently gotten herself invited to in New York in another couple of weeks.
"Hi!!! I see you seeing me!!!!"
