Grandfather Victor Urbain with his daughter Monique and his two grand-children Henri-Jean and Christophe
In this snapshot we can see me with my father, Victor, and my two sons, Henri-Jean and Christophe. We lived near Versailles and taking a walk in the gardens of the Palace was one of our Sunday habits. When I was a child, my grandmother lived in Le Chesnay: I came every Thursday just like everybody else in Versailles. We entered the park through the Grand Trianon entrance.
Today I live in Arizona but I continue to look at the Palace’s programmes and its website. When friends want to visit the Palace, I encourage them to do so during the holidays. I still have quite an attachment to the place.
