She didn't seem too impressed at the time

And now we know.

It was just one of the moments from Donald Trump’s Inauguration that had viewers scratching their heads, and now we have (some of) the answers we were looking for.

Michelle Obama has finally revealed what was inside that blue Tiffany box that Melania Trump gifted her with at the Inauguration.

We’ve all seen the pictures of the former First Lady looking around for somewhere to lay the present the Trumps had given her and she’s finally given some clarity into that moment.

Appearing on Ellen yesterday, Michelle was asked about the gift exchange and she said:

“There is all this protocol because it’s a state visit. And never before do you get a gift so I’m sort of like, ‘OK, what am I supposed to do with this gift?’

“Everyone cleared out so I’m thinking, ‘do we take the picture with the box?’ and then my husband came and saved the day and brought it inside.”

As for what was inside the blue box, well, Michelle revealed that it was, in fact, a picture frame.

With Tifanny frames retailing for anywhere between £700 and £1,500, we’re sure this one has earned pride of place on the Obama mantel.
