I wonder if she went there as a "private" person or as the wife of the PM?

A rather sad and and lonely woman. No children, husband never at home, forbidden to work by her dragon of a mother-in-law. No wonder she drinks and goes to watch tennis.

Too much lemon in the lemonade?

I don't want to bad mouth her, but I was shocked when I saw the picture. I didn't recognize her. I hate to say this but she has aged considerably since her husband's second stint in office. I remember thinking she was quite an attractive woman a few years back. Check out her wikipedia picture. It makes her look vibrant and attractive.


I know its about 9 years ago, but still, I was really shocked. I didn't recognize her.

Nice hat.

I have to admit I wouldn't have recognized her in this photo with that hat. Now if she had been wearing her beekeeper hat and been smiling...
