While most political wives of Europe keep a discreet distance from the public eye, the Czech Republic’s First Lady is the exception to the rule with an Instagram feed that could easily be mistaken for the account of a glamorous reality star.
Monika Babisova, 44, has been the partner of Andrej Babisov for more than 20 years, after meeting when she worked for the billionaire former businessman as his secretary.
Since his election as Prime Minister just under a year ago, she’s certainly been enjoying the opportunity to network on the world stage, and sharing her encounters with her 23,000 Instagram followers.
This weekend, the couple attended commemorations in Paris marking the 100 years since the end of the First World War, and Monika wasted no time sharing glamorous snaps of herself contemplating the Eiffel tower and cosying up to Melania Trump.
‘She is soooo beautiful,’ she captioned a snap of the pair together wearing similar grey dresses at a lunch at the Palace of Versailles.

‘I think now that Andrei is in politics, I started spending even more. Because I have to have quite decent clothes, I really spend a lot.’

‘I try to keep looking as good as possible, to be pleasant, and above all to be myself. That’s how he knows me and I think that’s how he likes me.’

As well as her charitable foundation, she has also been working on the launch of a boutique hotel and restaurant.
‘I don’t just wait at home for my husband to come home from work and tell me what’s next. I am simply independent,’ she told Luxury Prague Life.
‘I’ve been working on the entire project for about two years. I design and furnish the interiors, and I also invented and created the entire hotel. So I am definitely not bored.’
