    Then French Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Trogneux arrive at the Elysee Palace in Paris, France, to attend a dinner in honour of Spain's King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia, June 2, 2015.

    Take a look at the first lady of the French Republic in Sputnik's gallery.

    Brigitte Macron had been her husband's closest collaborator and played a major role in his presidential campaign. Now the world's eyes are on her as she becomes the first lady of France. French President-elect Emmanuel Macron's wife is a former drama teacher who first met her future husband when he was only 15-years-old and she was 40. Brigitte directed him in a school play. The couple eventually married in 2007, when he was nearly 30 and she 54-years old. The pair has been spotted hand-in-hand in all public events they participated in.
