Get to know France’s first couple
Emmanuel and Brigitte Macron’s relationship has been under public scrutiny since the election (and perhaps even before) for its unconventional nature: he is 25 years younger than her, and she used to be his drama teacher.

Here, we take a look at some of the couple’s sweetest moments together, from the campaign trail, to the election and beyond.
