Michael Cole has praised the 'superb' Brigitte Macron, wife of French President Emmanuel Macron, as King Charles and Queen Camilla visit the French leaders in Paris.

Speaking on Breakfast with Stephen and Anne, the Royal Correspondent compared the Queen to 'chic' Brigitte, making note of their very similar outfits at the state banquet in the Palace of Versailles.

Anne Diamond asked: “Camilla has looked like a Queen on this visit, hasn't she? She's dressing superbly and she looks the business.”

Cole agreed: “Absolutely. And of course, she paid a compliment to France by dressing in Dior for the banquet in the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles. Of course, in part, it's impossible to compete with the chic of Brigitte Macron.

“I mean, she's absolutely superb - one lady who's 70, that's Brigitte, and the Queen is 76. But they're a good pair and they looked as if they were getting on well."

Cole continued: “And you know what I've noticed? The King looks so happy. He's so different from the Queen, the late Queen, I mean his mother. He loves chatting to people. He's quite tactile, he all the time he's talking to people and relating to them and that's going down terribly well.

“He looks very relaxed into the world. A year into it and this visit, I mean, all state visits are important, but this is an extremely important state visit and he's spoken of the golden bond which ties us to our good friends and our good allies. Of course, we've had bumpy moments with the French. We always will have, but they are our nearest neighbours, so we all love to go there, don't we?”
