The McCanns snapped on Madeleine’s fourth birthday, nine days after her alleged abduction.
Mr Desmond compared Madeleine’s disappearance with the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, saying both were subjects on which people still speculated in the “bar or coffee shop”.
Below - footage taken days after McCann claimed his daughter was stolen by a paedophile ! So yes I agree with Desmond the McCanns were very happy. Money was pouring in, their financial troubles were over.
