After arriving by Eurostar from London, the monarch changed into a pale pink tweed jacket and matching skirt for a ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe alongside the French premier.
The British head of state and her French counterpart arrived together in a maroon Rolls Royce and were greeted by a sea of Union flags, as well as a military guard of honour.

Following a ceremonial leave-taking at Villacoublay Airport, the monarch will travel home for her final engagement of the week, a trip to the Epsom Downs racecourse for the Derby.
The most prestigious of the five British Classics, the Derby remains the only one that the Queen hasn't yet won.
Despite first place having so far eluded her, the monarch did manage a second place finish with Aureole in 1953 and came third in 2011 with Carlton House.
First run in 1780, the Derby is also boasts the largest prize money - £1,325,000 - of any British race, and as a result, attracts some of the world's top equine talent.
Hotly tipped runners in this year's event include the favourite, a chestnut three-year-old named Australia, and his stablemates Orchestra and Geoffrey Chaucer.
