First Lady Melania Trump was the hostess with the mostess on Wednesday. Queen Rania took to her social media account on April 6 to thank President Donald Trump’s wife for hosting her in Washington, D.C. "A very warm welcome from @FLOTUS at the @WhiteHouse yesterday- Thank you for the wonderful hospitality," Her Majesty wrote alongside a photo of herself with the first lady strolling the colonnade of the White House.


Melania and Rania spent the day together in D.C. on 5 April 

Prior to the Queen’s tweet, Melania shared a message for her foreign guest, while revealing one of their topics of conversation from their day out. The mum-of-one tweeted: "I was honouted to welcome Queen Rania of Jordan at the @WhiteHouse today. I enjoyed spending the time speaking about our countries." Barron Trump’s parents welcomed the Jordanian monarchs to the White House on April 5. Like his wife, King Abdullah II also thanked his hosts tweeting: "Rania & I were honoured to visit with the President & First lady. Encouraged by @POTUS determination to support peace efforts & war on terror."

While at the presidential residence, Abdullah and the president held a joint news conference, during which the American leader noted that the United States is “blessed” to have a “thoughtful and determined partner” in the Jordanian King. Later in the day, Melanie and the Queen, who are both advocates for education, paid a visit to Excel Academy — a public charter school for girls in southeast D.C., where the ladies showed off their blossoming friendship. Prior to participating in a panel with students, parents and faculty of the school, Melania laughingly told Her Majesty: "You got very tall," to which the Queen replied: "Oh, I think it's my chair." "Bring me down to Earth," the royal said as she adjusted her seat.

After attending art and sciences classes at the charter school, the first lady shared a photo of herself embracing a student with a hug, which she captioned: "Thank you students & teachers at @ExcelAcademyPCS today! Had so much fun speaking w the girls in science class. Thank you for having me." Meanwhile the Jordanian monarch shared another picture with the president’s wife writing: "A memorable visit to the Excel Academy Public Charter School for girls with First Lady Melania Trump! It's wonderful to witness the school’s dedication to creating programs specifically tailored to meet girls' educational needs 
#Jordan #LoveJO #USA #Washington#DC"” The fashionable Queen also posted a video montage of her and King Abdullah’s busy day with the Trumps.
