In this photo dated June 16, 2007, Jean d'Ormesson arrives at the Elysee Palace to attend the handover ceremony between French incumbent President Jacques Chirac and President-elect Nicolas Sarkozy, in Paris, France. Jean d'Ormesson, a very public face among the usually discreet "immortals" of the prestigious Academie Francaise, whom President Emmanuel Macron called a "prince of letters," has died. He was 92.
