On the eve of the release of its new number, the famous weekly – which is used to giving its Unes to French politicians and their wives – unveiled this unprecedented cover of Jean and Sandra Castex. A nice appetizer before discovering more in the inside pages.
The couple appear relaxed, holding hands during a stroll outside. The coat open, without his glasses, the Prime Minister is smiling, while his dog (a Brittany spaniel in full race) precedes him. ” Intimate Castex. The Prime Minister receives us in family at Matignon “, headlines Paris Match . A beautiful promise of reading …
On its website , the weekly already reveals a few words from Jean Castex about his wife. If the 55-year-old replaced the very popular Edouard Philippe last July , after his resignation, it is with the essential endorsement of Sandra. ” If my wife had not agreed to come and live in Matignon, I would not be Prime Minister “, confides the former enarque.
And Sandra, with whom Jean Castex had 4 children (girls), offers sweet parentheses to the Prime Minister, whose daily life is obviously overloaded. ” If the very reserved Sandra Castex keeps a good distance from the affairs of the State, she sometimes ventures into the offices of the first floor. It is less to discuss with the advisers than to impose a small recess in a job of the overloaded time of head of government “, writes Paris Match .
Sandra Ribelaygue, a 49-year-old Catalan, also leads a political career as a municipal councilor in the small village of Valcebollère. It is therefore the Prime Minister’s perpetual attachment to his native Pyrénées-Orientales.
