First lady Melania Trump speaks during a discussion with students in the Blue Room of the White House in Washington, April 9, 2018.

A brief video shared on Twitter from the event shows the first lady and President TrumpDonald John TrumpMelania Trump to attend event with Gold Star families on Monday US official: North Korea's top military officials replaced Iran urges countries to stand up to Trump's "bullying" on nuke deal MORE entering the reception.

In recent days, communications director Stephanie Grisham has said the first lady is "doing really well", but had declined to provide details about her condition.

But the Monday night event, for families of service members killed in the Iraq War, will be closed to the media, according to a schedule released by the White House on Sunday night. She and son Barron officially moved to the White House last June.

The fact she has not been seen in public for more than 24 days has led to questions over whether there is something more going on than recovery from a routine procedure, with weird rumors including that she has been living with the Obamas, that she is secretly back in NY, and that she is writing a tell-all book about her husband.

Rumor: Microsoft May Be Acquiring GitHub
GitHub is home for modern developers and the world's most popular destination for open source projects and software innovation. The code repository has been used by some of software development's biggest names including Apple , Google , and Amazon .

"I see the media is working overtime speculating where I am & what I'm doing", she wrote.

In a statement after last year's event, Melania called Gold Star families a "unique and distinct category" of people who should be "cherished".

Mrs. Trump stayed in the hospital for five days and has kept out of public view since returning home May 19.

Shortly afterwards, she entered Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for what the White House described as a benign kidney procedure.

The president literally pointed at a window, indicating the presence of the first lady, but ... she wasn't there.

England include unlucky goalkeeper on their bench for pre-World Cup friendly
However, Southgate's selection conundrum in goal remains, even if Pickford conceded against the Super Eagles. England kick off their World Cup campaign on June 18, with their fixture against Tunisia in Volgograd.

The next day, June 1, the President and his children Ivanka, Don Jr., and Tiffany left for Camp David.

Mrs Trump, never one to obsess like her husband about media attention, has laid low before. Melania announced the new initiative on May 7, right before she made herself scarce. The press is not invited, but no doubt we will receive some kind of confirmation from some source whether the first lady was there or not.

Her absence has sparked all kinds of wild speculation, but the first lady has shown no interest in making an appearance just to knock down rumors.

"For most of the 20th century and certainly in the 21st century, a first lady hasn't had the option of not being a public figure - regardless of unfortunate personal circumstances".

NFL owners note Donald Trump's attempt to influence anthem views
While NFL team owners were almost unanimous in their vote supporting the new rule, some have different opinions. Teams also will have the option to fine any team personnel, including players, for the infraction.
