Whereas the US press dropped to their jaws a year ago when the First Couple visited Paris for the military parade and Donald Trump told Brigitte Macron she looked ‘so good for her age’, this time round it was French President Emmanuel Macron who thanked Australian Prime Minister Turnbull for his warm welcome and of course mentioned his ‘delicious wife’.

One of the reasons Mr Macron’s visit to the US last week was so noteworthy is because he was able to address the joint houses of congress for a speech in which he set out his global vision and the fact that it differed from Mr Trump’s ideas.

All the newspapers in Europe noted how much Mr Macron wanted to preserve the Paris climate agreement, work on the Iran nuclear deal and form a better alliance between Europe and the US. All noteworthy causes, but of the speech itself not many in Europe caught a glimpse, mainly due to the fact that Mr Macron’s command of the English language is, at times, lacking a bit.

We can only guess this was the case again today when at the end of a multiple day visit to Australia, Mr Macron was eager to thank his host, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and stated: "Thank you and your delicious wife for your warm welcome, the perfect organisation of this trip."

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">This might help explain the awkward mistranslation of the French President describing Malcolm Turnbull&#39;s wife as &quot;delicious&quot;. <a href="https://t.co/CTDE7ANunY">pic.twitter.com/CTDE7ANunY</a></p>&mdash; Jamie McKinnell (@jamie86) <a href="https://twitter.com/jamie86/status/991528835429552130?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">May 2, 2018</a></blockquote>

"Thanks to you and Lucy, thank you very much, Mr Prime Minister," Mr Macron stated, to the chuckling of some journalists, just before the two men shook hands.
