Melania forced to nudge Donald Trump to remind him to raise his hand during National Anthem

It's one of the biggest events in the First Lady's calendar - and Melania Trump's biggest challenge yet.

Tens of thousands of people attend the White House's annual Easter Egg roll each year - and 2017 was no exception.

But as well as mingling with guests, Melania clearly had another important task - reminding her husband to raise his hand during the National Anthem.

The First Lady can be seen giving the President a nudge when the music started - reminding him to show the mark of respect.

Melania and the couple's son had already raised their hands but the Donald kept his palms by his side until his wife's gentle reminder.

Melania and Donald had made a special appearance to thank service members at the huge event.

They appeared at the Truman Balcony before walking down the South Lawn to chat to some of the 21,000 people who had been invited.

Melania said: "As we renew this tradition, thank you for joining us on behalf of the President and Barron.

"We wish you great fun, and a beautiful day is coming ahead of us."

Let's hope things run more smoothly for the rest of the event.
