Social media goes wild as French president decides to go ‘incognito’ to gauge mood of British public

Mourners who came to pay respect to the Queen were shocked to see the French President Emmanuel Macron walking along the River Thames in London.

The Queen’s official mourning period was lightened by Brigitte and the VIP walking around the sunlit Sunday London with her wife Brigitte. This was a happy moment for the couple.

The president met with people gathered around Parliament.

Many people posted footage or photos of France’s head state on social media. Others made up mocking posts and mocked Mr Macron.

For the walk, the French leader had swapped his blue suit for a dark navy jacket, dark pants, and black trainers.

To gauge the mood of the British public, he had apparently decided to “incognito”.

They were not “incognito” as they walked through central London, accompanied by security guards and aides.

People on social media called Alix Mortimer “possibly the most incognito person that I’ve ever met.” They also added: “As the saying goes,” Alix Mortimer said, “as much talent as a Giraffe wearing dark glasses trying to get into the polar bears-only club’.”

Online video shows passersby looking at the entourage while spinning their heads. Some recognize the figures.

Image Before paying respects to the Queen’s coffin, they changed into sunglasses and sneakers.

One person tweeted: Under a photo appearingto display the elegantly-dressed leader with designer sunglasses, “Juste un petit voyage Incognito A Greggs” — “Juste un petit voyage Incognito to Greggs!”

Then someone responded: “Je veux un steak bake.”

This image was quickly discredited as a bogus.

On Sunday evening, the French President and First Lady were expected to attend a reception at Buckingham Palace with hundreds of foreign dignitaries. There they would present King Charles with a book featuring photos celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s historical links to France and her visits over the years.
