  6. I like your appreciation for the monarchy. I think most of the French like the Republic....... although you have a long histoty of the Kingdomship. Regards, Diana

    1. Thank you Diana. You know with French people and kingdomship, it is the musical chairs : after the Revolution, we had the abdication of Napoleon I then the Restoration with a Bourbon, Louis the XVIII !!!! for a short time only because Napoleon came back again (for Waterloo...) So to be honest, I do not really know what the French like or not. One think is sure though and common since centuries : they are never happy with the King, Emperor or President they elected... Warm Regards, Sixte

  7. Are you longing for the reign of the King in France? I am sure you come from French aristocrasy! That's great! Kind Regards, Margaret

    1. Thank you Margaret. Nothing compare the relationship British people and their Queen have, it is incredible and I do envy you : there is a little "je ne sais quoi" built during all those years of reign maybe... I could not feel the same in Belgium for example (even though they adore their King..). To be honest, I am not sure French people could do the same...Warm Regards, Sixte
