Well, just like a Titanic fanatic, I don't believe that anybody should hold or own M.A.'s belongings. I earnestly feel they should be brought together into one collection and returned to their rightful place in France, preferably at Versailles or the Trianon. I understand that Queen Elizabeth of G.B. owns quite a few things from Louis & Antoinette (big pieces, too. Like furniture and paintings). Also, the Gettys and the DuPonts here in America have small private collections of items. I'm sure there are more, but these are the ones I know of.

The closest I've come is seeing the "HOPE Diamond", on display at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC. It was given to Marie Antoinette by Louis XVI, but was then stolen during the Revolution. It was passed down to Louis XVI from Louis XIV and is said to be cursed. :cry:

So dear Comte--your grandmother is of royal descent? And you--are truly the comte' de Provence, no? Please educate me.

And can you shed light on the fate of MA's lace veil which was actually used by members of the Imperial Russian Family for weddings?

This was recently purchased... on ebay. the seller sent it in a nice pink bracelet jewelry box wrapped in gift tissue paper and box tied in a white ribbon. The charm bracelet has things that represented the French royalty including a fleur de lys charms, horse carriage, 18th century slippers, skeleton keys, french bread, crowns, and best of all portraits of the Queen herself. Check it out.

Sorry Jolie I have been absent. Yes, I am. But I am not the Comte de Provence, but I am the duc d'Auvergne. My grandmother was married to Henri comte de Paris. She is the Duchesse of Montpensier.

I have no idea about the lace veil. :/ I'm sorry.

There are other beautiful things on ebay I've seen that reminds me of Marie Antoinette. Check out this hand fan I saw still up for bidding, it kinda reminds me of the one in the beginning of the movie when she arrived at Versailles, and took it out of the box.

And here is another really nice one, great for Marie Antoinette Costumes and Balls.

This is one of my favorite portraits of Antoinette.
