Besides the endless speculation, the life of Melania Trump in the White House is one that the public knows little about.
However, Brigitte Macron has revealed some details about the First Lady’s life in Washington.
The French First Lady took a trip to the US, and said that Melania is “really fun,” but added that “she can’t do anything.”
As her three-day state visit with her husband, French president, Emmanuel Macron draws to an end, Mrs Macron spoke to the French Newspaper, Le Monde.
“[Melania] cannot do anything. She can’t even open a window at the White House. She can’t go outside. She’s much more constrained than I am. I go out every day in Paris.”
During her stay, the French First Lady accompanied Melania Trump to a closed exhibition of the French painter, Paul Cézanne in the National Art Gallery.
Brigitte Macron spoke highly of the US First Lady, saying that she is “kind, charming, intelligent and very open,” but admits living in the centre of the public eye can be challenging.
“Everything is interpreted, over-interpreted. She’s someone who has a strong personality but works hard to hide it. She laughs very easily, at everything, but shows it less than I do.”
According to Le Monde, the French First Lady also visited a non-fee paying school during her time in the US capital. 92 percent of the school's students are minorities and enjoy a whole host of teaching from classical subjects in the morning to artistic disciplines in the afternoon.
This is not the first time that the two first ladies have met. Last July, both women had spent the day exploring Notre-Dame in Paris together, ahead of Donald Trump's visit on Bastille Day, the French national day.
