    While President Donald Trump met with Prime Minister Theresa May Friday morning, First Lady Melania Trump set out for London to meet up with May's husband, Philip May, at London's Royal Hospital for an event with British schoolchildren and veterans. The first lady met with school children who showed her how they make poppies -- a British symbol in that stands in tribute to fallen service members -- that are sold to raise money for veterans on Armistice Day and, in an apparent nod to Mrs Trump's "Be Best" initiative that promotes children's interests, chatted with a group of kids...

    President Donald Trump has arrived at Blenheim Palace in grand style ahead of a gala dinner with US and UK business leaders. He was pictured arriving in Marine One in a tuxedo with First Lady Melania, who is wearing a floor-length, pleated buttercup yellow gown. Awkwardly grabbing Theresa May hand - in a replay of their White House meeting last year - Trump was treated to a fanfare welcome by the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards bands. The president was also given a performance of Amazing Grace featuring a bagpipe solo. The magnificent English country house, which was built in...

    Saint Melania the Righetous, Feast Day June 8 Saint Melania was a lady of noble birth, most wealthy and renowned, a descendant of Roman consuls, and of Spanish origin. When her husband and two of her children died, she departed for Egypt to visit the monks living at Mount Nitria. She distributed her wealth to those that were in need there, as well as to the confessors of the Faith who were being persecuted by the Arians. In three days alone, she fed some 5,000. Then, when these Orthodox Christians were exiled to Palestine, she also went to Jerusalem. There,...

    First Lady Melania Trump returned to the public eye on Wednesday, shutting down many of the conspiracy theories hyped about her private life at the White House after undergoing kidney surgery. “She went through a little rough patch but she’s doing great,” Trump said. “The people love you. The people of our country love you. So thank you, honey.” The First Lady traveled with President Trump for a follow-up briefing at FEMA headquarters on the ongoing hurricane response. She did not speak at the event but appeared to be her normal self. The First Lady also joined the president for...

    Melania and Donald Trump are not known for being lovey dovey. But now – – they kissed and hugged in pubic. Coincidence? Melania Trump, 48, and Donald Trump, 71, are not known for kissing and hugging in public. While Michelle Obama, 54, and Barack Obama, 56, inspired memes, because they practically couldn’t keep their hands off each other during eight years at the White House, the Trumps are the targets of awkward headlines about their relationship. But the first couple was unusually affectionate during an official engagement at the White House. Melania introduced her husband during a special Mother’s Day...

    True to her own unique style, first lady Melania Trump unveiled her policy platform Monday, which is counter to the traditional single-issue initiatives we’ve become accustomed to seeing first ladies take on. Instead she chose a broad approach to a campaign that tackles several issues our nation’s children face. Specifically, the first lady’s Be Best campaign centers on three parts: well-being, social media use and opioid abuse. In a speech in the Rose Garden announcing the initiative, the first lady said: “Let us teach our children the difference between right and wrong, and encourage them to be best in their...

    Melania Trump celebrated her 48th birthday on Thursday. And although all her husband, President Trump, got her was a card and some flowers, it seems that her birthday week might still have been one of her best, allowing people to express their most favorable opinions of the first lady thus far. Her trip to Texas was followed by a quick return to Washington, D.C., where preparations were taking place for the pair to host the administration’s first state dinner, in honor of the official visit of French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte. Melania took to Twitter to let...

    Late Monday night, the White House showed off the finishing touches of first lady Melania Trump's first state dinner, as she and President Trump will host French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife at the executive mansion tomorrow. Reporters were briefly allowed into the White House and were greeted by gold table settings, gold silverware, gold candlesticks, gold wine glasses, gold chairs – situated elegantly around puffs of green and white flowers – in the candlelit state dining room. At each of the 130 place settings there was a menu, with the White House seal and the fleur-de-lis, which were...

    First Lady Melania Trump visited the “Prescribed to Death” memorial this week for Americans who have died in the opioid crisis. Mrs. Trump kept her ensemble colorful in a pale pink Max Mara coat, similar to a Jil Sander coat she has previously worn, and a yellow-green dress that perfectly matched a pair of yellow-green, suede Christian Louboutins. The chilly Spring has kept Mrs. Trump in a series of suits, coats, and pants, though she has celebrated the season in bright colors. Mrs. Trump wore a similar color palette last month in a coral Emilio Pucci suit and yellow sweater....

    First Lady Melania Trump rocked gold embroidered pumps for a Saturday night date with President Trump at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., ignoring the fallout from late-night host Jimmy Kimmel’s underhanded personal attacks. Mrs. Trump stepped out in an A-line black coat, a silhouette she has repeated during cold weather days, pairing the simplistic ensemble with a baroque, Versace-esque pair of black pumps that featured gold embroidery and a gold heel. The first lady, nor President Donald Trump, have spoken publicly since Kimmel mocked Mrs. Trump’s accent during his monologue last week. Kimmel released a statement on Sunday...

Wearing a navy coat with a funnel-like collar by French luxury brand Chloé and breathtakingly rich Gianvito Rossi knee-high Italian leather boots, Mrs. Trump was easily the most fashionable woman in the room (not uncommon for her) during the event on opioids. Mrs. Trump chose big brown-shaded sunglasses to conceal her smokey eyes from the sunlight. The knee-high boots paired with long coats and dresses look that Mrs. Trump chose has been...
