From 1789, he acted as valet to King Louis XVI and was permitted by Petion to continue to wait on the Royal Family during their imprisonment in the Temple. After the King's execution, Clery accompanied the Madame Royale (Marie-Therese de Bourbon) on her exile to Vienna where he continued to serve until his death.
