Praying to St. Anne

From the Tea at Trianon Forum. Thank you, Tiny-Librarian! To quote:
A large stained glass window in the Basilica of Sainte-Anne d’Auray. It was given to the church by Henri, the Comte de Chambord.

It portrays his mother, the Duchesse de Berry, and his aunt, the Duchesse d’Angoulême, kneeling in prayer before a statue of Saint Anne, the patron saint of Brittany.

I had to link to this at Cross of Laeken- a stunning representation of two of the greatest princesses who are among the relatives of the Belgian royal family.
