I actually find it rather odd - where are the spouses of female leaders in this picture?

And I'm not sure if Mr May went, either - but the impression is that there are female partners, whose only value is to support their man, and dress fashionably (for some meaning of fashion) and poor M Destenay is treated as one of the girls, not invited to join the male spouses.

If the husbands of female world leaders put their own lives before that of being photographed and amused by trips to the Magritte Museum, then this is a steroetype of gay partners which I find disturbing. The step in the right direction was the election of a openly gay Prime Minister. Now, treating his husband as a honorary wife for the photo is a step back.
