Brussels – EU Council chief Charles Michel has postponed his wedding in French Montmeyan after the area was put under Belgium’s list of orange zones, his spokesperson confirmed to dpa on Friday.

Michel’s wedding to Amelie Derbaudrenghien was scheduled for Saturday in Montmeyan’s Var department, an area that has now been added to the list of places for which Belgium recommends travellers quarantine on return.

A new date for the wedding has not been set yet, his spokesperson said.

The 44-year-old European Council president is not the first top European politician whose wedding-plans got thrown off schedule by the pandemic.
