More Marie Antoinette and Versailles informaiton ...please

 This is where Marie Antoinette selected her clothing for the day.

I am anxiously awaiting the release of anew book A Day at Versailles. I have read that the book shows many private or hidden places that you normally do not see on the tours there. April 1 is the release date. The above pictures are of some of the areas not normally seen on the tours. Every thing I learn about Versailles and Marie Antoinette (and before her time) Madame de Pompadour is fascinating to me. 
Someday I will spend a few months in the town there and do more research.
The private rooms are,of course, on a more intimate scale and really give you a feeling of how they lived.
If I can't be there I like reading about Versailles,
Have a Pink day!
