    What a beautiful young woman she was, that is a lovely portrait of her, is it in this country or abroad? I wonder if she was repulsed by her ‘old’ french husband, the things you had to do out of duty eh, but she soon wore the poor old thing out though. No wonder she stamped her royal foot and married whom she wanted afterwards, the brave lady incurring the wrath of big brother. Good job he favoured her and her husband too
