The Prime Minister added that there is "a unity of purpose" among the British public that the Government should get on with Brexit following the leave vote.

Acknowledging the referendum result, Macron added that: 'Of course, the door remains open - it's always open until talks come to the end.

'Both our countries have sadly suffered the horrors of terrorism all too recently, ' she said.

Britain and France face similar challenges in fighting home-grown Islamic extremism and share similar scars from deadly attacks that rocked London, Manchester, Paris and Nice.

Macron also wished the Brexit talks could start as soon as possible.

"That being said, a sovereign decision was taken by the British people and that is to come out of the European Union, and I very much respect the decisions taken by the people, be it by the French people or the British people".

Dressed in a grey jacket and black pants, Mrs May was granted a guard of honour as she arrived at the Elysee Palace to be greeted at the door with a kiss on both cheeks by Mr Macron ahead of a working dinner.

British officials had previously suggested they wouldn't be able to formally start Brexit negotiations as scheduled.
