The youngest Trump, who is rather tall for his age, was spotted dwarfing his mother Melania, who stood empathetically beside her sad husband.
Former First Son Barron Trump made a rare public appearance on Wednesday, July 20, when he was seen attending Ivana Trump’s memorial service with the rest of his family.
The 16-year-old was initially seen at the Upper East Side funeral service with his father, former President Donald Trump, and mother, Melania Trump, who waved to supporters in the streets.
Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle were also in attendance. Barron was later photographed standing by his parents’ side following the funeral service. The youngest Trump, who is at least 6’7″ tall, towered over his mother Melania, who stood empathetically by her husband.
Ivana Trump’s funeral
Ivana Trump was 73 years old when she passed away. According to the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office, she succumbed to blunt force trauma to the torso sustained in a tragic fall on Thursday, July 14. It has been determined that her death was an accident. The funeral was held at St Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church in Manhattan, which is located in the same Upper East Side neighborhood where Ivana resided. Several members of the Trump family were observed leaving the church following the ceremony. Former President Donald Trump, his wife Melania, Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and others were seen following the funeral services.
Eric Trump, the son of Ivana and former President Donald Trump, spoke at his mother’s funeral and called her a “force of nature.” “She had brains, she had beauty,” Eric said in his speech at the Upper East Side church. “She was the embodiment of the American dream.” The mourning son went on to say that Ivana could “beat any man down the slopes, any woman on the runway.” Ivanka Trump also spoke at her mother’s funeral about how the late businesswoman taught her everything she knows.
“Growing up, my mother didn’t tell me a woman could do anything she wanted to — she showed me. She was a trailblazer by men and women alike,” Ivanka said. She went on to say: “My mother once told me there was nothing she couldn’t do in heels. She taught us how to spearfish and then cook what we caught.” Instead of sending flowers, the funeral attendees and others were asked to make donations to Florida’s Big Dog Ranch Rescue in order to preserve the lives of canines that are in dire need.
