Her bewildered expression suggests the world’s most famous orphan Mercy James is finding her new home a little confusing.
Superstar Madonna’s four-year-old adopted daughter is getting used to life in London after being flown from her shanty town in Malawi.
The superstar dispatched a nanny to fly on a private jet to South Africa on Friday night before taking a first class flight to Heathrow.
Madonna immediately took the little girl to meet her new siblings Rocco, 8, Lourdes, 12, and David, 3, at a Kabbalah meeting.
And her ex-husband Guy Ritchie joined the group to greet Mercy before taking David and Rocco to his country estate so that Madonna could spend more time with her new daughter.
After the hour long service the party returned to Madonna’s $10 million town home in Mayfair where Mercy later made her first public appearance wearing a pink dress to greet guests at the front door.
One onlooker said: “Mercy looked slightly confused. It has obviously been a bit like a circus around her the past few days so it’s not surprising. It was only a day or two ago that she was still in Malawi and now she finds herself in the middle of London without her friends.”
Madonna ‘s adoption bid was plagued with controversy and the child’s biological father James Kambewa hit out once again at the multi-millionaire star.
He told local reporters: “My Mercy is gone. Madonna has used her money and power but my blood lives in Mercy for ever and ever. There is nothing I can do now.”
If Mercy’s experience living with Madonna is anything like David Banda’s then she can get used to a much more opulent lifestyle.
David wears designer clothes, flies around the world in private jets and is privately schooled too.
Life for Mercy James, with the Material Mom will never be the same again.
