Former First Lady Melania Trump passed away at the age of 96.
All living former first ladies were invited to the event.
Former First Lady Melania Trump has been invited to the funeral for Rosalynn Carter, which is set for next Wednesday.
Carter, 96, passed away on Sunday at her Plains, Georgia, home, just two days after she was placed in hospice care. Her 97-year-old husband, former President Jimmy Carter, was by her side, according to the Washington Post.
Melania Trump belonged to a special group of women: presidential first ladies and her family is reportedly remembering this as they get ready for her funeral. According to the Washington Post, all first ladies have been invited to the service. Melania Trump might be present at the same event as Hillary Clinton, Jill Biden, Michelle Obama, and Laura Bush.
James E. “Chip” Carter III, the son of Rosalynn Carter, described his mother as “a gracious person” who “would treat everybody with respect.” According to the Washington Post, his mother had a say in whether or not to invite all of the first ladies.
Melania Trump is expected to attend.
Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Laura Bush are also all expected to attend.
Melania Trump is poised to be among a group of all the living former first ladies — including Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush — to attend a tribute service this week honoring Rosalynn Carter.
The ex-model and wife of former President Trump was on a list of expected guests released Monday by the Carter Center.
Carter, who marked her 77th wedding anniversary with former President Carter in July, died last week at 96.
In addition to the former first ladies, President Biden, first lady Jill Biden, Vice President Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff are all slated to attend the invitation-only service Tuesday at Emory University in Atlanta. Former President Trump was not among the guests listed.
