A tribute through history. "Thank you, your majesty", wrote Emmanuel Macron in a message on his social networks to which is added a video retracing the meetings of Elizabeth II with the various presidents of the Republic. Beginning in particular with the Queen's speech at the Elysée Palace in April 1957, alongside President René Coty. In excellent French she then declared: "Mr. President, may the trust and mutual understanding between the French Republic and the United Kingdom continue forever."

The video then continues with footage: from Elizabeth II's first meeting with a French head of state in May 1948, Vincent Auriol, to the last with Emmanuel Macron, June 11th, 2021, in Cornwall during of the G7 summit.

The day after the death of the queen, the head of state had already insisted on the links of the latter with France. During his speech at the Elysée, he said: "Elizabeth II mastered our language, loved our culture and touched our hearts. Since her coronation, she has known and spoken with all our presidents. No other country has had the privilege of receiving her as often as we have." He had also tweeted “to you, she was your Queen. To us, she was The Queen. She will be with all of us forever”.
