According to Clotilde the new job she was offered came as a surprise, even though the Boël family has a good rapport with the royal house. Even though Clotilde & Mathilde had met at several occasions where they talked to each other, they were not personal friends (yet). Mathilde rang Mrs Boël personnally to ask if she would become her lady-in-waiting.
