Melania Trump body double: Conspiracy frenzy over White House appearance

But the Melania mystery only deepened when the White House event took place with no media access, and another day went by with no press sighting of her.

In the photo she is seen at the event, held for military veterans on Monday, sat with President Donald Trump.

Mrs. Trump was last seen publicly during the overnight hours of May 10 when she and the president welcomed home three Americans who had been detained in North Korea.

The rumor mill has been working overtime in Melania's absence, speculating that she's moved out of the White House completely, or that her rumored body double is out of town. Trump assured those present that Melania wouldn't miss the reception "for anything" and referred to her surgery as "a little problem".

Reporters turned to look at the spot he indicated, but there was no sign of the first lady.

Stephanie Grisham, the first lady's communications director, told the Times on Monday that it was "pretty typical" for people to avoid travel after undergoing medical procedures.

Mrs. Trump joined the president at a reception Monday to honor families of those killed during military service. In the weeks before, the first lady had organized a state dinner with France and saw her poll numbers rising.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she expects "difficult discussions" at the summit in Quebec. Washington has demanded that Beijing take steps to open its markets further to US goods.

A video also showed the First Lady escorting her husband, the president, into the ceremony but, again, it was from a distance, and has become something of a Zapruder film for 2018.

"It was a privilege to welcome Gold Star Families to the White House today to recognize our Nation's fallen heroes and their families", Mrs. Trump said in a statement released after the event.

Her continued disappearance from public life has prompted some pretty wild conspiracy theories.

Comedian Sarah Silverman retweeted the first lady's post, adding: "Who is this? where's Melania?".

As Monday's event has made clear, however, rumours of the first lady's death have been greatly exaggerated.

She sent early signals that she will not bow to speculation or public expectations about what she should be doing. In the weeks since, Grisham has said the first lady has been in feeling great and has been engaged in meetings regarding her policy initiatives and planning for the upcoming Fourth of July celebration at the White House.

"Mrs. Trump is very strong and independent", Grisham said.
