Melania and Barron Trump finally move into the White House

Melania Trump has joined her husband in the White House after spending the first five months of his presidency in New York. The first lady had stayed in Trump Tower after Donald Trump's inauguration in January until their 11-year-old son Barron finished the school year.
"Looking forward to the memories we'll make in our new home!" Mrs Trump tweeted after moving in on Sunday night, three days before the president celebrates his 71st birthday.

The tweet came with a photograph of the Washington Monument as seen from what appeared to be the Red Room in the White House.

Her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, confirmed the move.
"It's official! @FLOTUS & Barron have made the move to DC! £WelcomeHome," Grisham tweeted.

Up until now, the 45-year-old first lady has divided her time between Manhattan and Washington DC so that Barron's studies at school would not be disrupted.

Barron, who becomes the first boy to live in the White House since three-year-old John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1963,  is to attend a private school in Maryland in the autumn.

So far Mrs Trump's engagements have included entertaining the wives of heads of state at the White House and Mar-a-Lago, and presiding over events ranging from an International Women’s Day lunch to the annual Easter egg roll for children on the White House lawn.

Now she has moved in, pressure will build for her to be seen more and to do more.
