"Hi Mary! Sorry if we stole your thunder! First Harry, then George, then bushfires, now us. Sucks to be you!"
Mazza is PUMPED, you guys. Home at last, in new clothes, the rent-a-crowds are showing up on schedule, and Jane and Patty and Amber have finally made their public debut at the Ole Lyngaard boutique opening. Jane was wearing Marianne Dulong earrings, but no matter. Other freebies were in store for the four sluurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrpppers, certainly.
Our gal is ON, and really working the crowds, milking the moment with cameras around, with people handing her flowers on cue, with all the little Danish and Australian flags all Aussies just carry around with them for spontaneous eruptions of patriotism and an indication - ok, just in Mary's mind - that they really want the DRF instead of the BRF. Yet, how many came out for Harry? Million or so? Wonder if Harry had to pay his PR firm to pay people to show up, like Mary does?
Funny to see the photies at the bottom of this post, the ones with "Prince Franz" and "Vicki" on a sailboat, taken from a long distance. Mary's smile has disappeared, Fred has taken the lead since it's one of his favourite activities, and Mary slinks into a funk just as they gain their always vaunted "private time". It's like they just read Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom's breakup has garnered more hits than them. Boohoo! That's the real Mary, the one with a face that is both tighter than a tick, and looks like it's melting. Cheers!
