En todos los escaparates lucen los retratos de los nuevos monarcas, amados con una esperanza que todavía no conoce la decepción; ferviente entusiasmo acoge cada uno de sus actos, y hasta en la corte, paralizada por el miedo, comienza a sentirse de nuevo la alegría; vienen de nuevo ahora, con bailes y desfiles, diversiones y una renovada dicha de vivir; la soberanía de la juventud y de la libertad. Un suspiro de alivio saluda la muerte del viejo rey, y las campanas mortuorias, en las tomes de toda Francia, suenan con tanta claridad y alegría como si repicasen convocando a una fiesta.

Por tanto, ¿qué hubiera sido más natural sino que la nueva heredera del trono hiciese una visita a la capital de su reino dos, tres o cuatro días después de la boda? Pero el verdadero sentido, o más bien la falta de sentido del ceremonial, consiste precisamente en oprimir o torcer lo natural en todas las formas de la vida. Entre Versalles y París se alza para María Antonieta una muralla invisible: la etiqueta. Pues sólo con toda solemnidad, después de un especial anuncio, precedido de un permiso del rey, le es dado al herede ro del trono de Francia entrar por primera vez en la capital con su esposa.

La impresión de este primer encuentro de María Antonieta con el pueblo es inmensa. De natural poco reflexiva, pero dotada de rápida comprensión, no concibe las cosas sino sólo por una inmediata y personal impresión, por intuitiva labor de sus sentidos y de sus ojos. Sólo en aquellos minutos, cuando la masa anó nima, tan grande que no se puede abarcar con la vista, gigantesca selva viviente con banderas, griterío y agitar de sombreros, asciende mugidora hacia ella en cálidas oleadas, sospecha por primera vez el esplendor y la grandeza de su posición a que el destino la ha elevado.
