On the front page of the press, the state visit of the King of England, Charles III, to France. His first visit to France since his coronation. Crab and blue lobster, Bresse poultry marinated in champagne and rose macaroon on the menu, this Wednesday evening, in Versailles: for the visit of the British sovereign, the French Republic is pulling out all the stops, in a setting worthy of the American series “Emily in Paris” – hence the front page of Release, “Charly in Paris”, with King Charles and Emmanuel Macron in a candy pink Montmartre. The British sovereign also has the honors of Figarowho explains that this state visit “is not limited to pageantry and socialities”, and that it is above all a question of “strengthening the post-Brexit links between France and the United Kingdom experienced by the Boris Johnson’s rants, disputes over fishing, and the control of illegal immigrants in the Channel. Le Figaro seems under the spell of this king, whose debut he welcomes “without misstep” – a feeling shared by 60% of British subjects, according to a survey, who think that the monarch is doing a “good job” for a year (“Quel whatever the meaning given to the word “work”). The newspaper even seems seized by nostalgia, when it evokes the “very cordial understanding” between the British Crown and France, which had also welcomed with great fanfare Elizabeth II, in Versailles, in 1972, under the presidency of Georges Pompidou. In Switzerland, The weather publishes a drawing by designer Patrick Chappatte amusing himself at the way in which the French “so monarchical Republic” is preparing to receive the British sovereign, in “the splendor of protocol”.

Emmanuel Macron also makes the headlines in the press across the Channel, alongside the boss of Labour, the British Labor Party. Keir Starmer met the French president on Tuesday, which is quite rare, since the leaders of the opposition parties are usually received by their counterpart of the same political sensibility. According to The Independent, members of Keir Starmer’s “shadow cabinet” also made the trip, presented as an opportunity to “break the ice” between the two leaders, who exchanged gifts – an Arsenal t-shirt, presented by Keir Starmer , who was given cufflinks. Beyond the pleasantries, the newspaper announces that this meeting comes as France and Germany want to establish a new relationship with the United Kingdom post-Brexit and make it an “associated member” of the European Union. The daily The I, however, assures that this scenario is ruled out by the Labor boss, who has already made it known that he will seek to obtain “a much better agreement”, if he is elected next year. In the meantime, Brexit will poison relations between the EU and the United Kingdom for some time to come – hence the laughter that seizes Emmanuel Macron when Keir Starmer promises him that he will “solve the Brexit problem”, in a drawing by Morten Morland for The Times.

In Spain, Catalan, Basque and Galician were used on Tuesday for the first time in the Spanish parliament in 45 years since the establishment of democracy. Parliamentary debates took place in Castilian, the official state language, but also in these three co-official languages ​​– a change adopted at the initiative of the socialists, according to El País. “Castilian ceases to be the language of everyone in parliament”: the very right-winger ABC denounces a concession from the government of Pedro Sanchez to the separatists, Catalans in particular, and shows deputies from the ultranationalist group Vox leaving the hemicycle and, in the process, putting down their simultaneous translation headphones. “Progress for co-official languages ​​in Madrid and slowdown in the EU”: the Basque pro-independence daily Gara reports that the question of Spanish regional languages ​​was also debated on Tuesday within the EU, whose European Affairs ministers are asking for more time to make a decision. THE Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reports “resistance” at the European level, notably from France, Finland and Sweden, not convinced of the need to open this debate, particularly in the current context of discussions on the enlargement of the EU.

We won’t leave each other on this. Before saying see you tomorrow, I suggest you take a look at Washington Post, which offers this beautiful report in Japan, where a cafe in Sengawa, in the western suburbs of Tokyo, has decided to hire, once a month, elderly people suffering from dementia, to work as waiters. The idea is to offer these seniors the opportunity to meet new people, to feel useful – which is essential to slow the progression of dementia, this neurodegenerative disease, which is currently incurable. A cafe where forgetting orders is not sushi.
