As columnist R. Couri Hay, who has known Ivana Trump for more than 40 years, revealed to the American magazine “People” before the funeral service, Ivanka Trump’s children have Ivanka Trump, 40, Donald Trump Jr., 44, and Eric Trump, 38. , attended the funeral. Footage shows the siblings with their partners and children arriving outside the church.

Donald and Melania Trump miss a touching moment
It was unclear until the ceremony if Trump would be accompanied by his wife Melania Trump, 56, although the couple are currently in New York. Donald and Ivana were married from 1977 to 1992. “She was a wonderful, beautiful and incredible woman who lived a wonderful and inspiring life,” the ex-president said in an official statement after Ivana’s death.
When the first images from the funeral were released, it quickly became apparent that Trump also wanted to pay his last respects to his ex-wife – accompanied by Melania. But: The couple arrived too late according to “Bild”. Because while Ivana Trump’s children and other guests stood in the street in over 30 degrees as her casket was carried into the church, Donald and Melania were still seated in the middle of a convoy of cars . Only ten minutes later, the couple entered the church through a side entrance.
Ivana and Melania would not have had a good relationship
Melania and Ivana are said to have never gotten on well, in 2017 Ivana even publicly lashed out at her husband’s new wife in a “Good Morning America” interview. “But I hate to call the White House because Melania is there and I don’t want any jealousy towards me. After all, I’m Trump’s first wife, okay? I’m the first lady, okay ?” she said. Melania didn’t let that sit and announced via her office: “There’s obviously nothing to this statement from an ex, it’s an unfortunate case of craving recognition. […].”
According to R. Couri Hay, “people from all over the world” were flown in to say goodbye to Ivana Trump. In lieu of flowers, the family asked for donations to benefit Florida-based animal welfare organization Big Dog Ranch Rescue. The deceased had been involved in the association for years.
