Meet Brigitte Trogneux, the glamorous high-school teacher who is the wife of French President-elect Emmanuel Macron.

She is the youngest of six Trogneux children and her family are famous chocolatiers in the region of Amiens. Les Trogneux is famous for its macaroons.

Trogneux was Macron's drama teacher. They met at the Jésuites de la Providence lycée, in Amiens, when he was 15. Footage has emerged on social media of the pair sharing their 'first kiss' (on the cheek) when he was a student and she was a married teacher.

Macron was reportedly packed off to Paris to finish his studies when news broke of his close bond with the married mother of three. Trogneux told Paris Match magazine that, at 17, Emmanuel told her: 'Whatever you do, I will marry you.'

She has been by his side ever since.

Macron is stepfather to Trogneux's three children -- two girls and a boy. Below, her daughters Thyphaine (left) and Laurence (right) at one of Macron's campaign rallies.

The age gap between the couple has been a source of fascination for local media.
