Melania did make one change to the look however; having chosen to pop the collar of the jacket for her visit to the military base a year ago, the first lady opted to wear it down in a more conservative style while touring the castle. She repeated the look while enjoying an evening celebration with her East Wing interns at the end of their time at the White House.

She offered to spend a historical moment with mothers and babies at the Greater Accra Regional (Ridge) Hospital. USA lawmakers have come, too. The pair had previously met earlier this year during the U.N. General Assembly in NY.
