She looked a little thin, but nonetheless she looked great. The dress was perfect and she elegantly stood out with that beautiful lavender color.

PS. She looked great standing next to Prince Wenzeslaus, they would make an attractive royal couple.

Here is the ever present ETW:

Who's that woman?
Gosh... this dress is awful!

Victoria looked gorgeous! Even if this dress is old: I love it! The backview is fantastic!

This only the second time she has worn it. I hope we see it again sometime in the future.

Versailles: The Dream of a King

I came across this floor plan on a message board about Versailles, it is in French though, when you click on the numbers it tells you the room's name and gives a photo of the room.

If you don't speak French you could go to freetranslation.com to have it translated,

Les appartements du rez de chaussée de Versailles

It is the best I could find for now.

I have came across these floorplans of Versailles. I always thought that Marie-Antoinette used the Queen's apartment but another floor plan has her rooms listed on the ground floor the other side of the palace.

the Queen's apartments, first floor:
Les grands appartements du chateau de Versailles

Marie-Antoinette's apartments ground floor (these aren't the Dauphine's rooms)
http://img474.imageshack.us/img474/7...chauseefi9.jpg

Does anyone know which rooms she actually used? I always thought the Queen's apartments but the second floor plans has me a little confused.

I have no idea which one's Marie Atoinette used, though it seems odd she'd be allotted only three rooms.

This doesn't seem to be the entire image--is there more of it, Pinkcat?

that is all the image, that I can find anyway. I was just curious to the Queen's apartments, because I always asumed that she used the Queen's apartments on the first floor, then the other floor plans shows a second set of apartments on the ground floor. I'm wondering now if one was the state apartments that she would use for official occasions and the other may be her private apartments.

The Palace of Versailles

The Danish newspaper Børsen today has an article about the upcoming silver furniture exhibition at Versailles which opens on 19 November.

According to the newspaper, the Danish items, 53 in all and from Rosenborg Castle, will make up about 70% of the exhibition as Denmark has an extraordinary large collection of silver furniture – the reason should be that the various items were originally commissioned by different persons and not only the king who could therefore melt it if the silver was needed.

Apparently, the items were taken to the Danish Central Bank some time ago and there hand-polished in preparation for the exhibition. Moreover, the Bruun Rasmussen auction house was asked to put a value on the furniture - the first time this has been done. The result is said to be a 'nice three-digit million figure, but not a billion'.

Queen Margrethe has not sent all her best pieces as some are in use elsewhere, but among the items should be one of the three silver lions and one of the throne chairs.

Cognac producer Martell is a principal participant in this adventure and according to Børsen, Martell has paid for insurance and transport of the Danish silver – for DKK 40m.

Børsen claims that the items were brought to Versailles some weeks ago – on two vans followed by a number of cars - and that the police in both Germany and France had made sure that the vans and cars were met by green traffic lights and cleared roads no matter where they went.

Queen Margrethe is said to be very excited about this exhibition and looking forward to opening it together with the French president; however the general election in Denmark tomorrow may mean that she will be unable to make it if the formation of a new government requires her to stay in Denmark.
