Fact of the Day: First Lady of France

Throughout the decades, many have called the President of France's wife as the First Lady of France. However there is no official role of First Lady in France like there is in the United States of America.

Nobody told Carla Bruni About it!

Pilar Domínguez said...

Yes, this is true. No other country consider this role for the president´s wife. Kisses:)

Christine said...

I didn't know that!

That's because the French presidents have so many women, wives and mistresses so who can decide who should be Number one? I say, "Let them eat cate." ha

Pat Hatt said...

Well at least they have a title

Bob Bushell's right -- sooner or later there will be a gay president. I suspect then the position will be called "First Spouse" or something. And what if Hilary Clinton becomes president -- what will Bill be called? How about "First Laddie" LOL?

it's nice to know other cultures. I still love France though :)

Elisabeth said...

Yes, that is why she doesn't get as many nice dresses as the one in the US. Regarding your comment on my blog post, have you tried the street food in San Francisco? I've heard it's great :)

in my country either. I don't think presidential wives should have any role. They should hide in the shadow. People didn't choose them.

I don't think a President's wife should have any role at all - people voted their husband, not her! Maybe she can accompany her guy to important events, but shouldn't have anything to do with politics if she doesn't pursue a career in that field anyways...

Have a great week,

Elected or not, if the partner (wife in this case) can play a role that makes a change for the better, I'm all in favor of it.

somehow have to call her! haha

I guess this makes it easier if you're President of France and want to move your mistress into the Presidential Palace.

So true ! Our President makes a lot of mistakes with his old wife and his mistress. French people dislike him in majority for his policy... :/

I sure didn't't know this. I have learned so much from you, my young friend...who says you can't "teach an old dog new tricks"?

I agree with the others. We did not elect the wife. She should stay in the background and not try to push her agendas off on us.
