Le staycation! Emmanuel Macron, 44, swaps his suits for shorts as he soaks up the sun with wife Brigitte, 69, on the first mini outing since he was re-elected as French president

Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte enjoyed their first weekend together late last month since the French president won reelection.

President Macron, 44, was seen on May 28 wearing a white René Lacoste polo shirt, black shorts and sunglasses as he walked hand-in-hand with the French first lady in southeastern France’s Bormes-les-Mimosas.

Brigitte, 69, donned a white blouse over an army green skirt as the power couple soaked up the sun during their first vacation since the French presidential election at the end of April.

Macron won with 58.54 percent of the vote – beating far-right Ms Le Pen, 53, with 41.46 percent, the final results showed.

But his victory over his far-right rival was smaller than their last showdown in 2017, when he won more than 66 percent of the vote, and Le Pen’s result was the best ever for the far-right with 13.2 million people voting in favour. hair.

Mr Macron was re-elected to a second five-year term in April, taking a short break from his duties ahead of the parliamentary elections on 12 and 19 June – where his party, recently renamed ‘Renaissance’, faces a challenge of the far right and of a new left alliance led by Jean-Luc Mélenchon.

Mr Mélenchon has said he wants to undermine Mr Macron’s presidency by winning the role of prime minister, forcing the president into a power-sharing scenario known in France as ‘cohabitation’, according to France24

Mr Mélenchon has built an alliance of the left in France, united around a common policy platform and a single candidate in each of the 577 constituencies – while his alliance is currently neck and neck with Mr Macron’s bloc.

On the international stage, Macron drew ire last week when he said a diplomatic exit must be left open for Vladimir Putin after his disastrous invasion of Ukraine.

In an interview with a group of regional newspapers in France, Macron said: “We must not humiliate Russia so that on the day the fighting ends we can build a way out through diplomatic channels.”

Macron’s comment prompted Ukraine’s foreign minister to say that allies “should better focus on how to put Russia in its place” because it “humiliates itself”.

Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba wrote in a tweet that “calling to avoid humiliation of Russia can only humiliate France and any other country that asks for it”.

Contrary to the positions of the UK and US, Macron has maintained an open dialogue with the Kremlin.

The French president said last week that he had spoken with Putin for about 100 hours since the war started in Ukraine.
