This is the first public appearance of the Dowager Countess of Paris since the passing of Prince Henri. Due to a recent hospitalisation, Princess Micaëla was unable to attend the funeral of her husband. Confined to a wheelchair, the Dowager Countess was finally able to commemorate her dearly loved spouse.
