Melania Trump is meeting Prince Harry later this year (without her husband)

Eh?

In today’s surprising news, it looks like Prince Harry will be spending a week with Melania Trump later this year. The First Lady is set to represent the US at the 2017 Invictus Games, which will take place in September.

However, Melania’s husband – who has just announced a transgender military ban – is reportedly not coming on the trip.

The event will be Melania’s first solo trip as the First Lady of the United States, and she’s understandably looking forward to the games.

In a statement on the White House website, the First Lady said: ‘I was heartened by the great success of the inaugural Invictus Games that took place in London in 2015, and the second games in Orlando, Florida last year.

‘In just two short years, the Invictus Games have allowed thousands of injured and wounded servicemen and women from many different countries to participate in adaptive sports competitions – something that should be lauded and supported worldwide.

‘I am honoured by the opportunity to represent our country at this year’s games,’ she added.

Melania should probably give her researchers a call however, as the statement is partly incorrect; the London games took place in 2014, and there were actually no games in 2015.

This year’s games will take place between the 23rd and 30th of September – and are set to be the biggest yet, with the US alone sending a delegation of 90 athletes to 2017 games.
