King Philippe and Queen Mathilde welcome the Trumps to Belgium


King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium welcomed President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump to the royal palace in Brussels on Wednesday (May 24). The monarchs and the Trumps were all smiles as they posed for photos beneath ornate chandeliers at the palace. The royal family’s Twitter account tweeted photos from the meeting writing, "Welcoming @POTUS Donald Trump and @FLOTUS Melania Trump at the Royal Palace of #Brussels #Belgium."


The Belgian monarchs welcomed the president and first lady to the royal palace in Brussels.

Melania looked characteristically chic for her audience with the Belgian royals wearing a gingham wool-jacquard coat by Michael Kors, which she accessorized with matching Manolo Blank pumps. Meanwhile, Mathilde exuded femininity in a dusty pale pink dress that featured floral designs. The foursome appeared to be in great spirits as they conversed.

The group appeared to enjoy their conversations with each other at the palace.

Following the president and first lady's visit with the royals, the palace posted a behind-the-scenes photo of the stylish women enjoying a conversation across from their respective spouses in one of the palace's rooms. Melania and Donald are currently on the fourth leg of their foreign tour of the Middle East and Europe and will stay in Belgium for two days for the NATO summit.

The couple journeyed from Italy to Brussels after having an audience with Pope Francis at the Vatican. While at the Apostolic Palace, His Holiness and the first lady joked about the president's diet. "What do you give him to eat? Potizza?" the pope asked Melania, to which she replied, "Yes!" (Potizza is a dessert served in Melania's native Slovenia).
