The event, however, will be "closed press", meaning that the media will not be allowed inside, allowing Melania to mostly remain out of the spotlight. She hasn't made a public appearance since before her five-day hospital stay in mid-May for treatment of a kidney condition the White House only described as benign.

Melania's apparent disdain for her husband has been witnessed multiple times in public, with the First Lady vividly recoiling as her husband reaches for her hand.

First lady Melania Trump speaks during a discussion with students in the Blue Room of the White House in Washington, April 9, 2018.

CNBC reporter Eamon Javers tweeted last week he had seen the first lady walking with her aides in the West Wing.

In recent days, communications director Stephanie Grisham has said the first lady is "doing really well", but had declined to provide details about her condition.

The first lady is not an elected position, and Melania Trump is under no obligation to keep the American people abreast of her health, activities or whereabouts. "Thank you to the Gold Star families that joined us in celebration & remembrance".

A campaign asking "where is Melania?" began on Twitter, with many chiming in with concerns about the mother-of-one to Barron Trump, 12.

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

Breakthrough breast cancer study means fewer women needing chemotherapy
The patients in this group were randomly assigned to chemotherapy with supplemental hormone therapy or just hormone therapy alone. The study published on Sunday, on which early-stage breast cancer patients can forgo chemo, is by far the most impactful so far.

"She will not attend the G7 and there are no plans for her to travel to Singapore at this time, " Grisham told AP.

After that reception, Mrs Trump put out a tweet that said she and Trump "were honoured to pay tribute to our fallen heroes".

The president also said: "Melania had a little problem a couple weeks ago, but she wouldn't miss this for anything".

Several of the invitees commented on the first lady as they left.

"These families have endured the ultimate in pain and sacrifice on behalf of our country, and I am honored to have spent the evening with them", she added.

The footage showed Mr Trump, 71, escorting his wife, 48, to the front row then taking to the podium to address the crowd, which included more than 40 Gold Star families of American military personnel killed in action.

She sent early signals that she will not bow to speculation or public expectations about what she should be doing.
