Melania Trump high-fives Chelsea pensioner during game of bowls


Melania Trump gave a high-five to a Chelsea pensioner as she enjoyed a game of bowls with veterans during a visit to the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
The First Lady showed off her skills as she played bowls in her towering stiletto heels as the Prime Minister’s husband Philip May watched on.
She wore a sleeveless Victoria Beckham dress with wide coloured panels with Christian Louboutin shoes.
Mrs Trump was shown around the chapel at the hospital, which was founded as a retirement home for soldiers by King Charles II in 1682.

When she arrived into the room, she asked the children if they would like to show her how to make the poppies.
Mrs Trump had a go at making one, and told the children: “Thank you for helping me.”

She showed Mr May her effort, who joked: “Very professional.”
After the poppy making, Mrs Trump listened to school children talk about values and service.
She sat in front of a poster which said “Be the best you can be.”
Mrs Trump and Mr May make an unlikely pairing as he is escorting her today while their spouses are embroiled in political talks at Chequers.

Donald Trump was being led by the Queen in front of troops, just after their first meeting.
President Trump and the First Lady Melania did not bow or curtsy upon first greeting the Queen instead opting for a handshake.
The US President appeared to walk ahead leaving the Queen to step behind Mr Trump.
After being blocked out behind the US President, the Queen then went back to the right-hand side of the US President.

Before the Queen caught up with him, Donald Trump looked side to side to see where she was.
The US President then waited for the Queen before the pair continued on their journey.
It is considered rude to turn your back on Her Majesty when meeting the Queen.
However, it is unclear whether Mr Trump was told to walk ahead before the Queen caught up with him during his visit.
Royal correspondent, Richard Fitzwilliams, told Express.co.uk: “It was inappropriate behaviour”.
The US President will have afternoon tea with the Queen, along with Melania.
Former Royal Butler, Grant Harrold, was asked on Sky News how the Queen will end the conversation with Mr Trump after their meeting.
He said: “The conversation will run down and the Queen is a master at this. We have seen how good she is.
