This is beyond diabolical. It is atrocious. It is totally uncalled for. This cannot be fobbed off as a mistake. This was very deliberate and calculated. It could, alas, have been an April Fool’s joke, but it isn’t. It is very real, and HUGE.
Yes, I understand. It is a very graphic way of calling Marie Antoinette by the ‘C’-word. But, even that, is unnecessary and puerile in that she was guillotined 221 years ago.
This makes me angry. I am VERY fond of Versailles Palace and Gardens. I am very familiar with them. I have visited Versailles dozens of times. 1968 – 1969 when I lived in France full-time and attended the “English School of Paris” (ESP) we lived in Louveciennes — which was on the outskirts of Versailles. Then during the 1978 to 1992 period when I would visit France at least 3 times a year I would invariably visit Versailles. Towards the last few years of that period we used to make a point of going to Versailles on weekend just for the pleasure and privilege of uniformed guards smartly sliding open the huge golden gates to let us in! Yep. It was a prerogative afforded to cars with diplomatic plates that had “CD 1” or “CD 2” on them. Essentially a car belonging to an Ambassador.
This is stupid. There was no need for this. As was the case 220 years ago heads should roll.
