A funny little detail about what goes on off camera at such a visit.
I watched a documentary tonight about foreign correspondents. One of them was Jesper Steinmetz who covered M&F's US visit.
He started out by asking the boy, who had been selected to recieve Mary at a visit to a school, about what he would like to ask Mary. The boy answered that he would like to know what it takes to be a princess.
Later on Jesper Steinmetz talked to Mary about what they would talk about and say, when the camera was turned on. He told about the boy and his question. Mary thought for a moment and said: "Be yourself". And they agreed that would be good answer.
So later on, she was interviewed on camera about this particular visit, and she was again asked the question from the boy: "What does it take to be a princess"? And Mary's "spontaneous" reply was: "You should be yourself".
I love work, it absolutely fascinates me. I can sit for hours looking at people working.
