In a few days is the anniversary of the Queen's death. I shall be going to the memorial mass for her at St Denis cathedral on the 16th October 2009 at midday....last year I laid a wreath of lilies on her tomb...and gently brushed the marble slab with the back of my hand as I raised myself up.

And the next day I shall be doing a commented walk from the Conciergerie to the Place de la Révolution that I have been wanting do for a long time with someone that knows all the anecdotes...there are still many contemporary buildings such as the Eglise Saint Roch where a woman held up her baby to the fallen sovereign.

Oh how moving Baron. I'm sure she would appreciate your love and dedication to her memory. :cry:

It must be such a moving and emotionally filled moment, Baron! I didn't know there's a memorial Mass for her every year. If I was in Paris, I would also go and pray for her. I will be close with my thought...
And the tour on the day after must be really interesting: if you learn some more anecdotes about her last voyage, I'd be glad to read them.

That is very moving. I didnt know about the Mass but I plan on attending when I eventually go to Paris. On the fateful day of her death this year, I wore my red silk ribbon around my neck as I do on all my most beloved fallen royals.

Baron,
I'd really like to take a commented pilgrimage from the Conciergerie to the Place'--have you posted comments on it elsewhere?
