Brigitte Macron was in familiar territory this morning as the former teacher enjoyed a tour of a high school in Copenhagen.
On the final day of France’s President Emmanuel Macron’s official two-day visit to Denmark, his wife chatted with students at the Rysensteen high school in the Scandinavian city.
While Kate Middleton-lookalike Crown Princess Mary, 46, opted for a chic navy blue at-the-knee dress, with a circular brooch adding a splash of glamour, the French First Lady decided on a striking burnt orange skirt suit, believed to be Louis Vuitton, with a matching biker-style jacket.

Meanwhile, 46-year-old Crown Princess Mary opted for a stylish navy blue dress that she’s worn before. She looked in serious mood as she arrived at the Copenhagen high school
Brigitte, known for bold wardrobe choices, wore her blonde hair tied back from her face, a smouldering kohl eye, and a pair of towering cream heels.
The pair spent time chatting to the youngsters before heading inside for a tour.
Last night, Brigitte dazzled in a white gown with glittering silver detailing as she joined her husband President Macron, 40, at the banquet hosted by the Danish Royal Family at Christiansborg Palace.
The couple, who arrived in Denmark today for a two-day visit, were escorted into the reception room by Queen Margrethe, 78, who looked elegant in a dark purple gown.
Mr Macron is carrying out the visit as he seeks to strengthen the relationships he needs to push France’s agenda of a more closely united European Union.
