THE FRENCH President will visit Sandhurst later this month, Downing Street has confirmed. 

Emmanuel Macron will be making his first visit to the UK this month, and as part of his trip, he will attend an event at Sandhurst.

Mr Macron will be attending the 35th UK-France summit, which this year will be held at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, on January 18.

Also in attendance will be Princes William and Harry. 

Prime Minister Theresa May will be using the summit to underline the strength of French-British relations. 

Speaking ahead of the meeting, Mrs May told the Forces Network: "France is one of the UK's oldest and closest allies and our partnership is one that we both rely on

"We also work closely together as the only European countries who are permanent members of the UN Security Council as well as members of the G7, G20 and Nato, upholding our shared faith in the rules-based international system.

"And our two countries also enjoy deep economic ties, sharing £71 billion in trade, making France the UK's third-largest trading partner."
