Details on how the Trump family will say their final goodbyes to Ivana Trump have been revealed. Ivana died in tragic circumstances on July 14, with New York’s Medical Examiner’s Office confirming that Donald Trump’s former wife died of complications from blunt force trauma after accidentally falling down the stairs at home, according to People.
Since then, the Trumps have paid loving tributes to Ivana on social media. Ivanka, Ivana and Donald’s only daughter, took to Instagram shortly after the news broke to share a series of old photos of herself and her mother, alongside some touching words. “Heartbroken by the death of my mother,” the star partially captioned the collection of photos, adding, “I will miss her forever and will always keep her memory alive in our hearts.”
As Ivanka’s father, Donald, publicly responded to the news, he confirmed his first wife’s death through a statement sent to Truth. “She was a wonderful, beautiful and amazing woman who lived an amazing and inspiring life. Her three children were her pride and joy,” he wrote, gushed about how proud his ex was of their offspring and vice versa. He then captioned the post: “Rest in peace Ivana!” But the question on everyone’s lips since Ivana’s sad death was announced is: will Donald stand next to his kids to say goodbye?
Details of Ivana Trump’s funeral
According to sources who spoke to the New York Post about the Trump family’s plans, Ivana Trump’s funeral will be on July 20. It has been reported that the event will be held at St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church in Manhattan, near where the mother of three lives in New York City, and Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump will all be in attendance. It’s not yet known if Ivana’s former husband Donald will make the trip to the Big Apple to say goodbye, but if he does, the outlet claims his current wife Melania Trump likely won’t be attending. Did you think you didn’t get an invitation? Donald’s second wife, Marla Maples, and their daughter, Tiffany Trump, and Donald’s niece, Mary Trump, according to Showbiz 411.
Sadly, Ivana’s funeral will now take place when the star was expecting a sunny holiday in Europe. Ivana’s friend Nikki Haskell claimed she was planning to fly to tropical St Tropez, France on July 15, telling Page Six: “This would be her first trip since the pandemic. She was afraid of contracting the virus.”
