At this announcement, a very long applause – initiated by the President of the Community Conference, President of the National Assembly, Yael Brown-Bivett – rang out in the Ile du Midi hall of the Palace of Versailles.

At the same time, joy exploded in the Trocadero Square in Paris, where thousands of people gathered in front of a giant screen directly connected to the Palace of Versailles. In the foreground, the Eiffel Tower began to shine in celebration of the event, while the inscriptions on the tower, “Mon corps, mon choix,” and “I have my body, I have a choice,” lit up.
