First Lady, Brigitte Macron, who according to Emmanuel Macron had been coaching her husband throughout the campaign, is now positioned and ready for the bigger stage.
"Brigitte, always present, and even more now, without whom I would not be me," Macron told the crowd.
Brigitte Macron (née Trogneux) has been a constant presence at Macron's side throughout the campaign, managing his agenda, editing his speeches and advising him on his stage presence.
This is not the first time, Brigitte has had to coach her husband. The couple met when Mr. Macron was a 15-year-old drama student at a school in Amiens, northern France. His future wife directed him in a school play.
"You cannot get rid of me. I will come back and I will marry you," he said, according to his biographers.
The pair eventually married in 2007, when he was nearly 30 and she 54-years old.
The couple have been ridiculed for the 25-year age difference and have claimed that the media are bias as they have failed to point out that US President Donald Trump and his wife and Melania, who also have a 25-year age gap, have not faced similar scrutiny.
Mr. Macron promises in time to define the First Lady's role and develop a suitable job description for her.
However, it is expected that the former teacher will focus on education reform.
"She will concentrate on work for autistic and disadvantaged kids, out of the political firing line," Candice Nedelec, co-author of a biography of the couple, told The Times.
