Lilly, your responses to Wesley's questions were excellent.

What I would add is, like all of us do in our everyday lives, Marie Antoinette didn't like everyone she met. While "snubbing" is seen as an immature or rude thing to do, in her mind it may have been more honourable not to pretend to like someone whom she found unbearable.

In reading about Marie Antoinette I've often felt she was too honest and open to ever fit into the way of life at Versailles with its scheming and false appearances.
