Paca and children

Details of Paca's dress are evident in this pair of Disderi photos of Empress Eugenie's sister. These images threw me because paca looks old in these pictures. The poster britt.25 commented, "Strange, but for me she looks quite old as if she was the grandmother and not mother...."
