I don't know if this has been pointed out already or not, but the name "Palais Royale" is actually grammatically incorrect in French. Since "palais" is masculine, there should be no 'e' at the end of "royale" - i.e. the correct spelling is "Palais Royal".

You would think they might have checked that first :P

Yes you may be right about the French grammar, but we Indians like to stab names and foreign grammar right in their chest
