Washington D.C. [USA], Jan 31 (ANI): Former First Lady Michelle Obama has revealed to Ellen DeGeneres what was inside the Tiffany box she received from Melania Trump on US President Donald Trump's Inauguration Day.
In a sneak peek of her first television interview since leaving the White House, Obama said that inside the signature Tiffany-blue box was a 'lovely frame'.
She then explained exactly what happened and her train of thought throughout the process.
"Well there is all this protocol," she said, as reported by People magazine. "This is like a state visit so they tell you they're going to stand here, and never before do you get this gift so I'm kind of like, 'OK...What am I supposed to do with this gift?'"
"And everyone cleared out and no one would come and take the box. And I'm thinking, do we take the picture with?"
"And then my husband saved the day - see he grabbed the box and took it back inside. But everybody cleared out. No staff, no one. I was like what do you do with the box?"
The 54-year-old visited 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' to celebrate Ellen's 60th-birthday celebration. (ANI)
