Melania Trump plays bowls in high-heeled stilettos with Theresa May's husband

Steven Clarke | 13 July, 2018, 17:05

With Britain reeling from the U.S. president's unflinching criticism of the prime minister's Brexit plans in an interview with the Sun, Melania Trump was escorted by Philip May on a tour of Royal Hospital Chelsea in London, had a meet and greet with British army veterans and schoolchildren, and enjoyed a game of bowls. Following a glamorous black-tie dinner on Thursday evening, in which she dazzled guests with her stunning yellow caped gown by J Mendel, Melania opted for a more casual look - but not less impressive - for her first London engagement on Friday morning.

FLOTUS played bowls with schoolchildren during her visit to London.

She also met Lieutenant Colonel Nicky Mott, hospital CEO Gary Lashko and Chelsea pensioners John Riley, Alan Collins and Marjorie Cole.

She then sat down with three veterans and 10 children for a short group discussion, as part of her "Be Best" campaign, which was rolled out in May and focuses on teaching kindness to children and childhood well-being.

The First Lady, 48, stepped out in a statement dress by British designer Victoria Beckham this morning.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation states to increase defence funding
A frustrated Trump has already hinted he may accept Russia's annexation of Crimea as he accepted Israel's annexation of Jerusalem. Japan, with the world's third-largest economy, spends an even smaller share of its GDP on defense than Germany, 0.9 percent.

The pair toured the hospital's chapel before joining a small group of elementary schoolchildren and veterans in making red paper poppies, a symbol for remembering and honoring those fallen in war.

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

LONDON, ENGLAND - JULY 13: First Lady, Melania Trump, tries her hand at bowls as she meets British Army veterans, known as Chelsea Pensioners, at Royal Hospital Chelsea on July 13, 2018 in London, England.

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, even getting a high five from one of the veterans - known as a Chelsea pensioner - for her efforts.

Trump and May "made for an unlikely pairing".
