Post Marie Thérèse Charlotte's infancy
I found two quotes from Marie Antoinette to her daugther:

"A son would have belonged to the state, but you shall be mine, and have all my care; you shall share my happiness and soften my sorrows."

"I should have liked to have given you all these as New Year's gifts," the queen said, "but the winter is very hard, there is a crowd of unhappy people who have no bread to eat, no clothes to wear, no wood to make a fire. I have given them all my money; I have none left to buy you presents, so there will be none this year."

I don't know if they are real, but if they are, they seem very beautiful, specially the first one...

I saw this picture in Bordeaux, the last year. It is wonderfull with Marie-Antoinette's children and the birds.
But I often see this picture when you post a message, Chou-Louis-Charles. :wink:

Did Marie Thérèse had a room for her one in the Petit Trianon? And during the Restoration, did she went to Versailles again?

I don't believe that Marie-Thérèse had a room reserved for her in Trianon... During the Restoration I don't believe too she went to Versailles... Louis XVIII and Charles X were in Paris. And it would have pointed out too many bad memories to her... even her return in Tuileries was very hard for her :wink:

Yes, the princess had her own room at Petit Trianon, at least I think I recall reading that in Pierre de Nolhac. She was known to have slept there. During the Restoration, she was known to have visited Versailles, strolling the grounds and praying in the chapel, once in the company of the Duc de Berry. Yes, she lived at the Tuileries, and had Madame Elisabeth's old suite.

«The Duchesse de Angoulême was found cold, distant, not elegant at all, lacking her mother´s charm.»

What do you think? I always thougth that she was an elegant women (the portaits are wonderful!), even if not as her mother!

Cold and distant? Yes, but it's normal. She stayed a few years in a prision, she saw the destruction of her family and all of the things she believed as a child...She was also a royal princese, she was told not to show her emotions......

Many people reproached her for not smiling, for being pressed all the time and for not showing any recognition.
It's true that the Duchess of Angoulème was very serious and obstinate. But be careful we are not certain that she was Madame Royale... :?
If she were the Duchess of Angoulème, we can indeed explain her distant behavior by what she has endured: the jail, the death of her close relations and the exile.
