Summary of article in Billed Bladet #02, 2014.
Written by Marianne Singer.
Mary recently went to an event at the posh hotel D'Angleterre in Copenhagen, where she met a number of people from the Heart Association. They included a number of children who in one way or another take part in a new film about siblings to children who suffer from heart defects, because naturally that affects their siblings as well and often in ways they don't know how to express - or just as bad, don't express.
While there Mary presented three grants to researchers and she had a brilliant rapport with the children, the whole thing culminating in a group-hug. - Presumably something they have learned from the children's support groups.
However, the chairman of the Heart Association, Anne Kaltoft, gave a very nice speech to Mary. The speech involved three year old Charlie, who is seen in the photos close to Mary holding a Rasmus Klump bear.
"I especially remember one of the children whom Your Royal Highness met in Aarhus and whom you (formal) have just met again here at d'Angleterre, that is three year old Charlie Cornell.
When we went to the chidren's ward (in Aarhus) Charlie was sitting in his bed in the room looking forward to meeting you. He had just gone trhough his third major heart operation and I clearly remember right away felt completely at ease with you, then as he did now.
He actually wanted to tell you about a kangaroo - for obvious reasons he may have been encouraged to take up that subject - but then he very much would like to show you his nails on his toes, because the toes was "luserøde" punk (*), as Charlie put it.
Before Charlie's surgery the nails had been mostly blue, by now his heart had been reconstructed and he had had a much better blood-flow with a much better oxygene-level and now the nails were, as Charlie put it, "luserøde" punk.
I have by the way, heard rumors that Charlie as a true gentlemen invited you to Viborg (a town), where you should come, not to see his stamp-collection, but his toys.
That shows that Charlie very quickly spotted the qualities of the Crown Princess, and so have we here in the Heart Association for a long time".
(*) A charming little mispronunciation by a two year old, which I have tried to translate into something similar.
