  6. Il y en aurait pour des heures à commenter ces photos .La princesse royale pose la main sur le coussin plutôt que sur l'épaule de sa mére .La petite Mia porte le sac de son arrière grand mére .shocking.(lol)
    Jolies photos mais peu de sentiments même sur la dernière où la reine ne regarde pas sa fille.
