Melania Trump promotes kindness in London after President bashes May

13 July 2018

As her husband Donald Trump met with British Prime Minister Theresa May to talk politics, Mrs. Trump was hosted by the British leader's husband, Philip May, as she visited the Royal Hospital Chelsea - an imposing building founded over 300 years ago by King Charles II, which today houses hundreds of British veterans.

The First Lady kept her other accessories to a minimum, doing away with bags and jewellery on Friday.

Mrs Trump was greeted by Mr May as she arrived at the historic address in a police-escorted convoy.

Three weeks earlier, the first lady caused outrage with her provocative choice of jacket for a meeting with immigrant families separated at the U.S. border, a Zara parka emblazoned with the words "I don't care, do you?"

Melania Trump bowled Britain over today as she was pictured laughing with a group of kids - as they made poppies to raise money for injured veterans.

The pair then sat in on the children's discussion of values and service, beneath a poster encouraging people to "be the best you can be".

Dressed in a sleeveless dress by British designer and former Spice Girls member Victoria Beckham, the first lady held a "Be Best" chat with a group of uniformed schoolchildren and scarlet-coated Pensioners in the hospital's Great Hall.

Melania Trump made an effort to win over the United Kingdom public with her choice of dress on Friday.

Her 10cm stilettos did not go unnoticed by the accredited media present, who had been advised to wear flat shoes for a game of bowls. She gamely bowled several times on the bowling green, to loud cheers from children waving British and USA flags. The Daily Express noted that Trump "seemed charmed" by May and "they seemed to be getting along just fine".
