While President Donald Trump met with British Prime Minister Theresa May in the United Kingdom, first lady Melania Trump went out on her own and stole the show.
…as she has a tendency to do.
Accompanied by the prime minister’s husband, Philip May, Mrs. Trump visited Royal Hospital Chelsea, an imposing building founded over 300 years ago by King Charles II which is now home to hundreds of British veterans, the National Post reported.
Wearing a sleeveless multi-colored Victoria Beckham dress with spike heels, she even tried her hand at ‘lawn bowls’ with British military veterans known as a ‘Chelsea Pensioners.’
And she was clearly enjoying herself, as you rarely see Melania Trump so animated!

The first lady was even photographed giving a British military veteran known as a “Chelsea Pensioner” a high-five after a bowling attempt.
After touring the hospital’s chapel, Mrs. Trump joined a small group of elementary schoolchildren and veterans in making red paper poppies in remembrance of those fallen in war.
Mrs. Trump’s Twitter page shared a photo of Mrs. Trump with the spouses of NATO countries on hand.
“A great visit in Belgium! Proud to represent the US at the spousal program during @NATO. Thank you to our host Belgium, @usembbrussels, @musicchapel & @Nato for a wonderful program. These opportunities are important to building lasting relationships w/ our foreign allies,” the caption read.
