After staying in NY in Trump Tower since the election so their young son Barron could finish the school year, 47-year-old Melania and the boy are reportedly moving to the White House this week, news website Politico reported.

The first lady's communications director, Stephanie Grisham, tweeted the news Sunday night.

Mrs Trump has been living in Trump Tower, New York, until the end of her son's school year. Using the hashtag #Movingday, Melania said, "Looking forward to the memories we'll make in our new home!" The moment, captured on video during Mr Trump's first and very high profile overseas visit as president, quickly went viral. Mrs. Trump was wearing a sleeveless white top and light brown culottes, and carried a matching Hermès Birkin bag, according to White House Wardrobe on Twitter, which tracks her fashion.

The first lady tweeted the news on Sunday evening after she arrived at the White House with Trump and their 11-year-old son, Barron.

After arriving at the White House Melania tweeted a picture from a window looking on to the South Lawn and the Washington Monument.

Melania Trump stayed largely out of sight during her husband's presidential campaign and was an absent first lady at the outset of the administration, staying in NY and focusing on Barron.

The Politico news website, quoting people familiar with the family's plans, reported that the two will move in on Wednesday, the day President Donald Trump turns 71.

Rumours of marital problems dogged the United States first couple on President Trump's recent overseas trip, as footage showed Mrs Trip repeatedly rebuffing physical contact from her husband. St. Andrews Episcopal School, praised for its "diversity", is a co-ed college prep school for grades 6-12, with tuition topping more than $40,000 a year. It also pointed toward a coming move to the White House.

Now that's she's at the White House full time, pressure will build for her to be seen more and to do more.
