Macron’s First Lady
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.
