President Donald Trump's wife, Melania Trump, will skip this week's G7 summit in Quebec and does not plan to attend the planned June 12 summit in Singapore with North Korea, the White House said on Sunday.
Mrs. Trump joined the president at a reception Monday to honor families of those killed during military service.
Video posted on Twitter showed the first lady, who wore a black sleeveless dress and her trademark stilettos, strolling into the East Room accompanied by President Donald Trump.
"Did she leave him?" the President asked at one point, before pointing out that Melania Trump was, in fact, sitting in the front row.
Her last appearance in an official capacity was on May 10, welcoming back three Americans imprisoned by North Korea.

After almost a month out of the public eye, Melania Trump is expected to make an appearance this evening at a White House event to honor Gold Star military families.
Even though the network noted that Melania Trump was scheduled to appear at the Gold Star function monday, CNN's Brian Stelter appeared to downplay the news because the event was not open to the public.

She'd recently spent several days at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after undergoing a surgical procedure for what a spokeswoman described as a benign kidney condition.
The rumors surrounding her absence ranged from suggestions she had plastic surgery to speculation that she moved out of the White House and back to NY.
The first lady's lack of recent viewings, prior to Monday's event, has created a storm of "where is she?" memes on the internet, and speculation on her whereabouts ran the gamut, from New York City to Palm Beach.

He went on for a minute or so, saying the media was speculating where she has been.
"These families have endured the ultimate in pain and sacrifice on behalf of our country, and I am honored to have spent the evening with them", she added. But, in a twist worthy of Poe or Coleridge, when said reporters turned to the window to look for Melania Trump, she was nowhere to be found.
Grisham said earlier that the first lady has been meeting with staff and working on projects.
As Monday's event has made clear, however, rumours of the first lady's death have been greatly exaggerated.
