Happier Times

Author Melanie Clegg has collected some pictures from the happier times in the life of the royal family of France. Above is a portrait of Marie-Antoinette with her two oldest children by Charles Leclercq. This painting was owned by the Comtesse de Provence.

 Above is a picture the Temple of Love during the Queen's party for the King of Sweden, which has been discussed here before.

What fantastic pictures! I particularly like the first one as a personal portrait of Marie-Antoinette and the third one has really lovely colours!
