What a lovely photo of Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife.
The first question is, how did M. Sarkozy find a box so quickly?
But what’s really great is, it’s a photo that sums up a relationship. I bet Prince Charles would look at that with sympathetic memories. Come on Nicolas, edge across, get yourself in there, nice big smile! Who is the president here, after all?
It tells you everything you need to know about the dynamic. In that sense, it reminds me of a great caption I once saw in Hello! magazine, under a photo of Anna Nicole Smith and her 90-year-old billionaire husband J Howard Marshall. You don’t need to see the picture - which is lucky, because I don’t have it - all you need is the caption:
“J Howard relaxes in his wheelchair as Anna picks out gems.”
