Melania's last public appearance was on May 10, when she joined President Trump to welcome home the three Americans released from North Korea.

Or maybe she's recovering from cosmetic surgery.

No explanation has since been forthcoming on why the president's wife has not appeared at any big events alongside her husband, including Monday's Memorial Day commemoration at Arlington Cemetery.

Melania was hailed for her flawless hosting of a state dinner to welcome French President Emmanuel Macron to the White House last month, and rolling out her Be Best anti-bullying initiative.

Some even went as far as to say that they believed the message looked more like it was written by President Donald Trump than his wife. "She was hospitalized for nearly a week and is now home and recovering". "Right there", Trump said.

'She is doing great.
