    Summary

    Its all Louis' fault. If he hadn't thought a week was long enough to forewarn his brother that the entire Royal Court was coming to Saint-Cloud, then the Chevalier wouldn't have been arguing with Phillipe and he certainly wouldn't have pulled Monsieur's hair.

    Summary

    'The Chevalier did not know what he’d expected to return to after his release from prison, but it wasn’t this. It wasn’t her.
    In truth, he supposes, Henriette’s presence in Philippe’s chambers should not be a surprise. It is.'
    Set after the Chevalier's release from prison in S1. E8. He returns to find Henriette waiting for him, with a clear idea how a freed suspected traitor should be treated, and the two begin to realise they have more in common than they first thought. And it isn't something as frivolous as their keen fashion sense.

    Summary

    On March 31, 1661, the English King's sister marries the French King's brother. This contract is often seen as one of King Louis XIV's first autonomous acts as King of France, negotiated with Henrietta's mother. Neither groom nor bride chose the match; and although the marriage celebration is sublime, neither is truly happy on this fine March day, and the groom flees his marriage bed to find solace elsewhere.

    -

    “So you're married,” the Chevalier says quietly. His breath grazes Philippe's lips, and as much as he loves that voice, he wishes it to be quiet for now. “And to a princess of England. Impressive.” Philippe hears himself snorting, but before he gets in a word, the other continues. “You looked quite happy with her, I wish you two all the best.” His voice is dripping with sarcasm, a grotesque charade of felicitations.

    “My dear-” Philippe tries to get in, to defuse the situation, but the Chevalier won't let him. His voice grows sharper still.
