Melania Trump and Donald Trump will be traveling to India for a series of engagements starting this Monday, Feb. 24.

During their trip, the first couple is expected to visit the Taj Mahal, and there are speculations that they could pose for a photo outside the popular tourist attraction.

While speaking with India Today, an ASI employee speculated on the possibility of the FLOTUS following in the footsteps of the late Princess Diana, who also visited the Taj Mahal decades ago.

The Princess of Wales’ trip made headlines because she was photographed by herself on the so-called Diana bench. Prior to her trip to India, rumors swirled that Prince Charles won’t join his wife on tour due to their marital problems.

However, royal experts revealed that Prince Charles had a prior engagement, and he wasn’t really scheduled to accompany his ex-wife at the Taj Mahal.

Photos of Prince William and Prince Harry’s mom sitting on a bench outside the Taj Mahal shows her looking a bit sad and timid. There are claims that the POTUS and his wife will take inspiration from Princess Diana and pose outside the attraction in a similar manner.

“There are four identical benches on the central tank platform, only the bench facing the water channel is called the Diana bench. The US President Donald Trump may wish to get his picture taken with his wife sitting on this bench, as a memory,” the employee said.

Other than their visit to the Taj Mahal, the FLOTUS will also be visiting the classroom of Delhi government schools, where she is also scheduled to attend a happiness class. The main goal of the class is to show how students are taught to co-exist with each other in a peaceful manner.

The White House has also released an official statement regarding the first couple’s two-day visit.

“The President and The First Lady will travel to New Delhi and Ahmedabad, which is in Prime Minister Modi’s home state of Gujarat and played such an important role in Mahatma Gandhi’s life and leadership of the Indian independence movement. During a phone call over the weekend, President Trump and Prime Minister Modi agreed the trip will further strengthen the United States-India strategic partnership and highlight the strong and enduring bonds between the American and Indian people,” they said.
