Melania Trump is taking her biggest step yet as first lady, leading the US delegation to an international sporting event in Toronto for wounded service members, the AP reports. It's her first trip representing the US without President Trump at her side. On Trump's schedule for the Invictus Games: meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, delivering remarks at a reception for the nearly 100 US athletes participating in the week-long Olympic-style competition, and attending Saturday's opening ceremony. Saturday also included a brush with British royalty for Trump, meeting with Britain's Prince Harry, who founded the Invictus Games in 2014. (More Melania Trump stories.)
