Australia’s first lady flattered

A mistake by French President Emmanuel Macron while thanking Australian President Malcolm Turnbull and his wife Lucy,did no harm to bilateral relations. While thanking the Turnbulls for being good hosts, he acknowledged the fine food and wine he enjoyed by exclaiming in English: I want to thank you for your welcome, you and your delicious wife for the warm welcome.

He may have meant to say delicieux which means lovely or delightful. However. Australian first lady was flattered and she found the compliment charming and memorable.
