Macron’s First Lady

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - MONTHLY ROUND-UP -

Em­manuel Macron will be­come France’s youngest Pres­i­dent since Napoleon af­ter he beat far-right op­po­nent Marine Le Pen, but the politi­cian’s re­la­tion­ship with his First Lady has at­tracted as much at­ten­tion as his rise to lead­er­ship. The 39-year-old Pres­i­dent-elect came to know Brigitte Macron – 24 years his se­nior – when he was her 15-year-old stu­dent. Brigitte, a mother of three adult chil­dren, di­vorced her hus­band in 2006 and mar­ried Mar­con a year later.

The age dif­fer­ence be­tween France’s first cou­ple is the same as Don­ald and Me­la­nia Trump – but in re­verse.
