Melania Trump Is Going on Her First Solo Trip Abroad

Share

Melania Trump will visit Toronto in September as she leads her country's delegation at the 2017 Invictus Games, the White House announced on Thursday.

The Internet has long since collectively decided Melania Trump, former model and wife of an elderly man now inhabiting the White House, is being held against her will in a loveless marriage from which she desperately wants to escape.

Mrs Trump said she has been "heartened by the great success" of the Games. The games, which were founded in 2014 by Prince Harry, have hundreds of wounded servicemen and women from 17 countries compete in sports like wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball, and even powerlifting.

The Games will take place from September 23 to September 30.

The Invictus Games were launched by Britain's Prince Harry, or, if so inclined, Prince Henry of Wales, who joked at the time that the US equivalent, the Warrior Games, was "such a good idea by the Americans that it had to be stolen". The Prince previously joined forces with Michelle Obama for last year's event.

The first Invictus Games were held in London, England, in 2014.

It's not the first time Harry has met a FLOTUS - he visited Michelle Obama at the White House in 2013, and shared tea with Michelle and her daughters Malia and Sasha at Kensington Palace in 2015. The usually quiet first lady will most likely have some public appearances for the event, so we'll be looking out for any royal interactions.

The First Lady, who has accompanied husband Donald Trump on the three foreign trips he has taken so far this year, said she was honoured by the opportunity.

Former FLOTUS Michelle Obama traveled to Orlando previous year to attend the games, which sees wounded servicemen and women from 17 countries compete in various sports.
