65-year-old first lady of France Brigitte Macron accompanied her husband, French President Emmanuel Macron, 40, on a state visit to America where she met the FLOTUS, Melania Trump.

During the trip to Washington, the 48-year-old former model, a fellow European who hails from Slovenia, reportedly became firm friends with her French counterpart, reported The Daily Star.

Brigitte however made shocking after the visit, claiming that the First Lady of America is effectively a prisoner in the White House.

However, Brigitte said that the First Lady of the United States is forced to "hide" her "strong personality".

According to Brigitte's account of the status quo at the White House, the FLOTUS can barely take a breath without the permission of security services at the White House.

“She is much more constrained than me. Melania can’t do anything,” she told French newspaper Le Monde. 

“The security is terrible. She can’t even open a window at the White House because immediately the security services call and say ‘close it’. 

“She can’t put a foot outside. Every day, I go out in Paris,” she added.

While painting a somewhat bleak picture of the FLOTUS living a life of captivity with President Trump as her husband, Brigitte praised Melania's brilliant sense of humor.

"She is really fun. We have the same sense of humor. We laugh a lot together," the French First Lady declared.

“Everything is interpreted, over-interpreted. She’s someone who has a strong personality but she makes an effort to hide it. 

“She laughs very easily at everything, but she shows it less than I do.” 

Having said that, Brigitte told how she too has had to acclimatize to life as the First Lady but is able to make time for herself and enjoy brief moments of freedom. President Macron's wife was a drama teacher back in high school.

Melania will be joining President Donald Trump on a "working visit to Britain on Friday, July 13th this year. She celebrated her birthday on Thursday.

As usual, the liberal media did not miss an opportunity to capture Trump's attempts to grab her hand and make headlines out of it as the first couple welcomed the French leaders to the White House.

While sources claim that Melania is far less decisive as compared to her husband, she has garnered a serious fan following since Trump won the presidential race in 2016.

She has been hailed by many as a style icon and she recently gained respect for the "elegant" State Dinner that she set up for the French President.
