Macron then paid tribute to the Queen during a flame rekindling ceremony at the Monument of the Arc de Triomphewhere he lays a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in the presence of the British Ambassador to France, Menna Rawlings.

Elizabeth is known for her love of horses. Fabuleu de Maucour, the seven-year-old gray gelding donated by Macron, escorted the president down the Champs-Élysées in Paris last month as part of an official ceremony, Macron’s office said.

Britain kicked off four days of pageantry and parties Thursday to celebrate Elizabeth’s reign.

Macron paid tribute to the Queen for bringing an element of wartime stability and profound change to society.

“You are the golden thread that unites our two countries, proof of the unwavering friendship between our two countries and our nations,” Macron said.

Macron was one of the harshest critics of British decision-making after his vote to leave the European Union, but the president expressed his admiration for a queen who came to the throne less than a decade after the end of World War II.

Macron also presented a thoroughbred to President Xi Jinping during his three-day state visit to China in 2018.
