Almost back to work. (Daily News)

After being the victim of a cruel prank by Harlem teenagers—dropping a shopping cart off of a shopping center—Marion Hedges will be returning to her real estate post at Prudential Douglas Elliman after recovery. A co-worker at Douglas Elliman, Margarita Barrera, told the Real Deal that she will back to work as soon as her injuries permit.

Hedges was thrown into a coma after the incidence and reportedly “had to relearn her name after regaining consciousness.”

The road to recovery will be long and arduous, a spokesperson for Mrs. Hedges told the Real Deal. She later confirmed interest in returning to the real estate market.

Despite suffering brain damage and the loss of vision in her left eye, Mrs. Hedges told news organizations on Wednesday that she forgives the teenagers. Mrs. Hedges has also expressed interest to meet the boy, Achilles Baskin, who tried to persuade the other two to not push the cart over the side of the structure.

The most devastating part is that the assailants showed little signs of remorse. Not Ms. Hedges. If we were in the market for a broker—a species not always known for its kindness and honesty—we know who we would call.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
