It's a childhood dream maybe, an accomplishment of a life clawing to the top: Nicolas Sarkozy goes to England to meet the queen. Mother is not in tow -too ill they say- but Carla Bruni is there, her mother too.
Charles Bremner tells us this is the centerpiece of a new drive to give a more stately image to the Sarkozy presidency. But the shrinks, quoted here in Le Monde, aren't convinced he can hold it together.
After the happiest day there ever was in NY (see photo), can Nicolas just move on already? Tough call.
