Bien Jouée!: Gentle Princess Marie, the Children's Princess, Visits Hospital to Promote Clown Programme That Helps Little Patients Cope

 
 
Meanwhile, back at Ranch Denmark, the real Children's Princess visited a hospital in Sonderborg to launch the programme for clowns to work with sick children. Sonderborg is near Graasten, down the road from Møgeltønder, in the far corner of the Jutland region of Denmark. What better patronage for Marie than to spend time with children in hospital. This is a delicate kind of event, what with all these young people dealing with terminal or horrible illnesses and conditions. It demands someone of compassion and sweetness who understands the sensitive nature of the situation and respects the feelings of all parties involved. No wonder no one ever asked Mary to do this. She repels children! And would never set foot in the provinces unarmed or in the company of spontaneous little people thinggies. Mary makes children wrap her present in front of her, then serves them cake with a knife in hand!
 
Marie has had practice with this clown group in hospital before and she seemed to have passed any unintentional test with flying colours. Marie, you are a star!

  1. of course they had to send Marie! Children blossom in her presence. Her loving style and genuine empathy wins them over every time! Good on her!

  2. Marie has it all together. Dresses and acts appropriate for this very poignant and tender cause. Poor little kids have lost their hair due to chemotherapy and radiation. The world isn't fair..........
