First lady Melania Trump will not attend the G7 summit in Canada or the U.S.-North Korea summit in Singapore, her spokeswoman said on Monday.

President Donald Trump will represent the United States at the G7 in Quebec this week, and is scheduled to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore June 12.

The first lady has not been seen in public for more than two weeks. She is scheduled to participate, though, in a White House reception Monday for Gold Star Families Memorial Day.

The annual reception honors families who lost relatives in military combat.

 

 

Melania Trump was last seen in public May 10, when she and the president arrived at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland with three Americans who'd been detained in North Korea. She did not travel to Camp David over the weekend for a retreat that included Trump and several of his family members.

The first lady was hospitalized for six days last month and underwent a medical procedure for kidney treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.

Last week, she sought to scuttle rumors of her whereabouts with a tweet that said she's "feeling great & working hard on behalf of children."
