Brigitte was typically glamorous in a powder blue suit and put a stylish twist on the ensemble by adding a pair of white trainers. As the weather warmed up, Mrs Macron removed her jacket to reveal an elegant crossover blouse.

Mrs Johnson opted for a more low-key look, stepping out in a classic white blouse and black straight-leg trousers combo. 

The mother-of-two finished the ensemble with simple nude pumps and wore her blonde locks swept over one shoulder in voluminous curls.

Politician Ms Ernst, a German education minister, was similarly casual in a navy two-piece and pale blue jumper. Ms Derbaudrenghien stood out in a vibrant yellow top and white trousers.

They were joined at the engagement by German former professional skier Christian Neureuther, who greeted Mrs Macron with a hug. 

It comes as world leaders last night agreed a new ‘surge’ of support to defeat Vladimir Putin in Ukraine after the Kremlin bombed Kyiv while the G7 met.

Emmanuel Macron yesterday said he was committed for the long haul. Boris Johnson said ‘backing down’ now would be a catastrophic mistake as he warned against encouraging Volodymyr Zelensky to accept a peace deal. 

Downing Street said the Russian leader’s decision to fire missiles on the Ukrainian capital had been ‘stupid’ and had ‘stiffened the resolve’ of leaders.

The spokesperson added that Macron and Johnson, who have until now had a strained relationship, were ‘aligned’ as the French said the defeat of Russia is ‘option number one’ and peace is ‘number two’.

‘There is a real sense that Putin was stupid to bomb Kyiv as the G7 gathered’, a No 10 source said. ‘It has made the leaders more united’.

The timing of the attack was seen as a pointed message to world leaders to encourage Ukraine into a peace deal where it cedes large portions of its territory. 

A Downing Street spokesman also warned that ‘enduring instability’ could be created if Putin was not curtailed now from launching similar attacks on other countries.

The Prime Minister yesterday argued that the leaders must help ‘strengthen Ukraine’s hand’ by providing more military support rather than encourage Mr Zelensky to give up territory in a peace deal.

Downing Street clarified to the Daily Telegraph that this remark about peace by Mr Johnson was to ‘the commentariat’ and not to the G7. 

‘It’s not helpful to discuss the individual leaders and their views expressed in private,’ a spokesman added. ‘I think what you will see in this G7 is that they are united in support for Ukraine.’

Mr Johnson and Mr Macron, who have until now had a strained relationship, yesterday agreed to a ‘reset’ as they held one-on-one talks at the summit. But the Downing Street spokesman refused to say whether both leaders had reached an agreement. 

A No 10 source told the Daily Mail that they now believed the French president was ‘on the right page’ when it came to Ukraine. He said: ‘They’re getting on well, they had a very good meeting. It’s all great with the French now.

‘Both sides are aligned. [Mr] Macron said the defeat of Russia is option number one to pursue. Option two is put [Mr] Zelensky in the best position to strike a deal.

‘We found that positive and officials say we are heading for a strong statement from this summit on Ukraine.’

Yesterday, the partners of the G7 leaders enjoyed a cross-country walk and appeared in excellent spirits as they stopped for a bite to eat.
