Bowled over by Me­la­nia, the veter­ans and Mr May

Daily Mail - - The Pomp And The Pygmy - By Jemma Buck­ley

THE First Lady let her hair down yesterday as she en­joyed a trip out with Theresa May’s hus­band Philip.

With her locks flow­ing, Me­la­nia Trump en­thu­si­as­ti­cally joined in a game of bowls at the Royal Hospi­tal Chelsea and was not held back by her high heels.

Re­laxed and smil­ing, she high-fived a Chelsea Pen­sioner and gave a thumb­sup af­ter a par­tic­u­larly good ef­fort.

For the oc­ca­sion, Mrs Trump, 48, gave a nod to Bri­tish fash­ion by wear­ing a £1,550 flare dress by Vic­to­ria Beck­ham.

She was wel­comed by Mr May to the Grade I-listed hospi­tal – home to 300 Army veter­ans – af­ter ar­riv­ing in West Lon­don in a convoy of five black SUVs and at least four po­lice out­rid­ers.

Mrs Trump, a Slove­nian-born for­mer model, and ox­ford grad­u­ate Mr May, 60, made an un­likely pair­ing but greeted each other warmly and ap­peared re­laxed in each other’s com­pany.

Be­fore tak­ing to the green, Mrs Trump was shown around the chapel and joined pupils from a lo­cal pri­mary school as they made pop­pies.

She showed Mr May her ef­fort, jok­ing: ‘Very pro­fes­sional.’ The First Lady later joined her hus­band at Wind­sor Cas­tle.

The un­likely cou­ple: Philip May and Mrs Trump

Give me five! The First Lady with a Chelsea Pen­sioner

How did I do? She gets caught up in the game
