This week’s WTRW theme is all about Royalty. While I enjoy binging episodes of The Crown or The Tudors as much as the next anglophile, and I’m certainly happy for newly betrothed Prince Harry, the preferred royal in our house is France’s 18th century ill-fated queen bee of decadence, Marie Antoinette.
Center Sister has an unexplained affinity for opulent Marie… She’s got an over-the-top wig in her likeness, has screened the 2006 film a dozen times, and her birthday before last was a Let Them Eat Cake tea party. Her fascination also prompted her to learn to speak French! Naturally, her royal highness also has a stack of books on the monarch as towering as her trademark bouffant.

All hail the queen! Who’s your favorite royal?
