French President Emmanuel Macron welcomed to UK by Prince Charles and Camilla

French President Emmanuel Macron has been welcomed to the UK with a ceremony of pomp and pageantry as he marked the 80th anniversary of General Charles de Gaulle’s famous wartime broadcast.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall greeted France’s leader at their official London home – but all remained two metres apart following social distancing guidelines.

The French president arrived at Clarence House after attending events in his homeland to commemorate De Gaulle’s rallying cry on the BBC, made in June 1940, when he urged the people of France to resist the Nazi occupation.

The president arrived in his official plane – a Dassault Falcon 7X – decorated in the national colours of France at RAF Northolt in west London.
