Here we see Nathalie as a sad and forgotten figure in Paris who lived in the monastery!She presented and was known there as Countess of Rudnik,but the only time she really presented herself as a Queen was when a horseman was kicking his horse!She couldn't stand it and came to him and as a Queen ordered him to stop!Of course,he didn't have to stop because she has been a forgotten ex-Queen of a far away country,but in the end he did!She spent her time giving candies to the children in the parks of Paris...It was reported that she died in 1935,but she died alone in Paris during World War II,without anyone left as a sad,unhappy and forgotten Queen!Ones she died in 1941 there were again several articles in the newspapers about the death of ''the sadest Queen of Europe''...
