Brigitte Macron Breaks Royal Protocol During Meeting With Queen Camila


It looks like Brigitte Macron just committed a royal blunder.

On June 6, the wife of French President Emmanuel Macron made a move to hold Queen Camilla‘s hand during a service to mark the 80th anniversary of the D-Day Landings in Normandy, France. After laying wreaths at the a memorial, Brigitte reached for Camilla as they back away to pay their respects.

However, the British royal—who was joined by her husband King Charles III at the event—seemingly did not reciprocate the gesture and kept her hands by her side, leading to an awkward as Brigitte held grasped the 76-year-old’s palm quickly before letting go. As seen in video published by the Daily Mail, the two then bowed their heads in silence before walking back to their respective husbands.

On the other hand, Charles had a more casual approach to etiquette during the meeting. In fact, the 75-year-old greeted Brigitte, 71, with a kiss on the hand when they first came face-to-face at the memorial.
