I was just watching a very touching new documentary on Leopold III of Belgium narrated by his daughter Esmeralda. It makes me wish that there were documentaries on Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette narrated by Marie-Therese. If only there had been that kind of technology in those days!

What a tragic and sorrowful burden for her to live with the rest of her life.
