WATCH: Melania nudges President to put hand over heart during national anthem

Social media were buzzing on Monday (April 17) with the lighter side of President Donald Trump's first Easter egg roll, where First Lady Melania Trump nudged him to national anthem form.

Trump, the first lady and son Barron appeared at the White House Truman Balcony to welcome guests at the traditional holiday event.

As the national anthem began, the Slovenian-born first lady touched him, apparently to remind him to put his hand over his heart, which she and Barron did first.

The president was the last to adopt the patriotic posture.

The US Flag Code calls for anyone addressing the flag, either during the pledge of allegiance or the national anthem, to put their right hand over their hearts.

The Star Spangled Banner, written as a poem by Francis Scott Key and set to a British song by John Stafford Smith, celebrates America's defeat of British ships in Baltimore harbor in the War of 1812.
