Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner joined the President and First Lady for a moment of silence in honor of the victims of 9/11 on Monday morning.

The 35-year-old mother-of-three and her husband both stood at Donald Trump’s side as he and Melania lead the solemn minute-long memorial.

Wearing a demure green dress with a waterfall hem and lace detailing, Ivanka looked incredibly elegant as she stood alongside Jared, 36, and White House Chief Economic Adviser Gary Cohn, having left her home from the garage inside an SUV.

Marking the day: The mother-of-three wore a demure green dress for the occasion

The first daughter wore a pair of dark glasses as she made her way outside, however she removed them before the memorial started.  

Ivanka and Jared, who both serve as senior advisers to the President, were pictured chatting with Cohn ahead of the ceremony, even breaking into smiles at one point before Donald and Melania walked out to join them on the South Lawn.  

But the smiles soon disappeared from their faces as they prepared to pay their respects to the thousands of people who perished during the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

At 8:46 am, the time of the first plane attack, the President and First Lady solemnly hung their heads as church bells tolled in the distance, with the rest of the White House staff following their lead. 

The first couple raised their gaze a minute later and the President unclasped his hands, signaling a trumpeter to begin performing military taps.

A light moment: The trio were even seen laughing at one point before the ceremony began

Both Trumps brought their hands to their hearts in a sign of respect for the 2,977 victims of the coordinated terror attacks, with the group of people behind them quickly following suit.  

When the short ceremony was over, the first couple turned around and walked back inside the White House, hand in hand. 

The President and First Lady then made their way to the Pentagon for a formal 9/11 remembrance ceremony, where they were once again joined by Ivanka. 

American Airlines Flight 77, en route from Dulles, Virginia, to Los Angeles, California, hit the Pentagon at 9:37 am on Sept. 11, killing 184 people.

President Trump is a native of New York and was in Manhattan on the day that plane-hijacking terrorists brought down the World Trade Center’s iconic Twin Towers.

His daughter Ivanka was also born and raised in the city, where she was bringing up her own three children before moving to D.C. to support her father in his role as President.

Ivanka and Jared’s attendance at the solemn service comes one day after they were seen out on a morning jog together in Washington, D.C. on Saturday.

The couple were both seen leaving their home in the upmarket Kalorama neighborhood, wearing matching grey sweatsuits as they began their run around the local area. 

Ivanka kept her blonde hair braided and adorned a black Secret Service hat, which had an American flag on the front as well as the service’s initials, USSS, embroidered on the side.

The two smiled as they jogged side-by-side at the intersection of Kalorama Road and Tracy Place, happily jogging alongside one another as they were followed closely by their Secret Service detail.
