On Friday, a ‘humiliated’ Emmanuel Macron asked King Charles to cancel his trip to the country, the first state visit of his reign, as the president fights to stem nationwide unrest over his pension reforms.
The monarch was due to arrive in Paris with the queen consort on Sunday for the four-day trip, the highlight of which would be a state banquet at Versailles on Monday.
But aides to the French president feared the event could stir up revolutionaries across the Channel, given the castle’s links to the 1789 Revolution and France’s last king, Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette, who were guillotined in 1793.
Experts told MailOnline that Charles III would have been determined to cross the Channel to show that “you can’t give in to the mafia” as anarchists vandalize and burn cities and Paris is plunged into tons of uncollected rubbish.
But Macron phoned the monarch this morning to ask him to stay in the UK after a call to 10 Downing Street with the same advice.
Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said the symbolism of a state banquet at Versailles as France burns would have been the president’s “Marie Antoinette moment”.

He said: ‘The postponement of King Charles’ state visit to France, the first of his reign, marks a humiliation for President Macron. The country is descending into anarchy and it was clearly impossible to guarantee the safety of the royal entourage and stick to any set schedule that could be relied on for safety.
The threats to disrupt the visit were all too real, especially given the symbolism associated with Versailles, where a state banquet was to be held.
“This really was a disaster with the Palace’s ties to an Old Regime that was overthrown by a revolution. These are too close for Macron’s comfort at the moment and mark a sea change by his government, which he was insisting today that he would go ahead with.”
A total of 457 people were arrested and 441 police and security force members were injured yesterday during protests across the country, Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said.
France has descended into political chaos since Macron imposed his plans to raise the state retirement age from 62 to 64, sparking violence, a crime wave and marches in every corner of the nation.
Macron’s decision to cancel the state visit is under fire at home, Eric Ciotti, leader of the Republican Party, said: “The government cancels the visit of Carlos III due to social unrest.” What an image of our country, which is not even capable of guaranteeing the security of a head of state’.
It emerged on Thursday that Carlos’ trip was being reviewed after hardliners vowed to attack the monarch’s visit and even block him in Paris and Bordeaux.
And on Friday, Macron pulled the plug, despite being determined to press on to show he’s still in charge.

The decision is said to have been made after talks between the French and British authorities, but security experts told MailOnline that because French police and secret services have primacy in the security operation, their advice would have been to cancel it. .
The French feared King Charles’ safety could not be guaranteed “because of his interest in blending in with crowds,” according to security sources in Paris.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: “The king and queen consort’s state visit to France has been postponed. Their Majesties look forward to the opportunity to visit France as soon as dates can be found.”
Charles and Camilla were due to travel from France to Germany for a state visit, next Wednesday to Friday, and it is understood that the visit to Berlin will go ahead as planned.
Investigative journalist Tom Bower told MailOnline that Macron had “bowed down to the left-wing mob” and that Charles would have wanted to confront them on his first state visit.
And Simon Morgan, a former royal protection officer who now runs the security business Trojan Consultancy, said the decision to go offline was prompted by France’s advice because it is “a state visit to France, not the other way around.”
He told MailOnline: ‘It’s a bit embarrassing for the French. There is a risk factor for the safety of the King and Queen Consort, in addition to that of the public. But it could simply be that they need all their resources to maintain basic law and order and don’t have the capacity to cope with a state visit as well.
“I imagine the French authorities felt they could do without the distraction of a state visit while they have serious public disorder and political unrest in the country.”
