THEY share the same famous father, but US President Donald Trump’s two daughters Ivanka and Tiffany couldn’t lead more different lives. 

While mum-of-three Ivanka, 37, is a full-time adviser to her dad, socialite Tiffany, 25, has mostly stayed out of the limelight and even been dubbed the ‘Forgotten Trump’.

The sisters, who have different mothers, are both in London for Trump’s visit, which has already seen the POTUS meet with the Queen and Prince Harry at Buckingham Palace.

Yet while married Ivanka has been spotted visiting the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tiffany has shopped at Gucci in Mayfair and dined at a swanky private members’ club.

Stepping out in a black baseball cap, chain-patterned shirt and pink glittery trainers, Tiffany’s look was worlds away from Ivanka’s elegant floral dress and blue heels.

Here, as Trump, 72, continues his three-day trip to the UK with wife Melania, we look at the contrasting lives, childhoods and partners of his two daughters…

Famous pals and a political fallout vs the Instagram-savvy ‘Snap Pack’

Ivanka

Living life in the public eye, it’s not surprising that Ivanka has some famous pals.

She has been linked to Hugh Jackman, Natalie Portman, Karlie Kloss and Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former US President Bill Clinton and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary.

However, last year, it was reported that Ivanka and Chelsea had fallen out – over politics.

“I have not spoken to her in a long time,” Chelsea was reported as saying by Marie Claire.

“It’s clear though that she has supported policies and decisions that I don’t agree with. I’ve been very vocal about my opposition to President Trump and this White House.”

Tiffany

Tiffany may have spent most of her life away from the spotlight, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have celebrity mates… in fact, it appears to be the opposite.

Her famous pals include actress Lindsay Lohan – who President Trump once said is “probably deeply troubled and therefore great in bed” – Gene Simmons’s daughter Sophie, fashion designer Adam Warren, and Paris Hilton brother’s Barron.

She has also been linked to Robert F Kennedy Jr’s daughter Kyra and Gaia Matisse, the great-great-granddaughter of painter Henri Matisse.

Tiffany and her socialite pals have been nicknamed the “Snap Pack” for regularly sharing photos of themselves online and being snapped by the paparazzi.

Married with three kids vs a boyfriend from a country her father may have called a “s***hole”

Ivanka

At 12 years older than Tiffany, Ivanka is married with three children.

She tied the knot with multi-millionaire real estate developer Jared Kushner in 2009, and the couple went on to have daughter Arabella and sons Joseph and Theodore.

In a later, powerful interview, Ivanka admitted that she suffered from postpartum depression following each of the pregnancies.

Ivanka and Jared met at a networking lunch and reportedly once split due to religious differences (Jared was raised in the Modern Orthodox Jewish tradition).

Ivanka, who can speak English and French and previously set up her own brand, had dated an investment banker and film producer before meeting her hubby.

Tiffany

Tiffany is dating scion Michael Boulos from Nigeria – a country which may or may not have been one of the African nations her father once referred to as “s***holes”.

According to Page Six, Micahel grew up in Lagos, where his family owns a multibillion-dollar conglomerate trading in vehicles, equipment, retail and construction.

The pair reportedly met in Mykonos, Greece, while attending Lindsay Lohan’s beach club.

A source told the news site in November: “Tiffany is happy she has so far been able to keep things with Michael under the radar. But she introduced him to her family at Thanksgiving, and he comes across as a very intelligent young man from a great family.”

She used to date Ross Mechanic, the son of a real estate lawyer

Instagram snaps show Tiffany posing with her boyfriend inside The White House. And last month, she was spotted leaving a London restaurant with him.

She had previously dated Ross Mechanic, the son of a real estate lawyer.

Ivanka

Ivanka had a more charmed upbringing than Tiffany.

Born in Manhattan, New York, on October 30, 1981, to Trump and his first wife, Czech former model Ivana Trump, she lived in the penthouse apartment of Trump Tower.

Her bedroom commanded a view of Central Park.

Ivanka attended an exclusive Manhattan all-girls school before transferring to boarding school Choate Rosemary Hall in Connecticut at the age of 15.

During her teenage years, she tried her hand at the world of modelling, taking part in runway fashion shows, adverts and even landing the cover of Seventeen in 1997.

But she later decided to study at Georgetown University and the University of Pennsylvania – her dad’s alma mater – graduating with a degree in economics in 2004.

Despite her fortunate childhood, not all of Ivanka’s life was rosy.

She was just 11 when her parents messily divorced in 1992 after Trump began a relationship with Marla Maples (who he’d go on to marry and have Tiffany with).

Tiffany

Party-loving Tiffany, born in West Palm Beach, Florida, on October 13, 1993, is Trump’s youngest daughter and only child with actress Marla, whom he divorced in 1999.

Named after the Tiffany & Co. jewellery store at Fifth Avenue, Manhattan, she was often seen at glamorous events with her parents before their divorce.

She attended New York Fashion Week and a ‘roaring 20’s’ party at Palm Beach’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

But after the split, Marla moved with Tiffany to Los Angeles, California, where raised the youngster as a ‘single mother’ out of the spotlight and 3,000 miles away from Trump.

The pair would enjoy movie nights together and home-cooked meals five nights a week.

“She gave me the chance to have a normal childhood,” Tiffany told People Magazine.

Marla would take her daughter to New York a couple of times a year so she could see her father and have dinner with him and his third wife Melania.

While living in California, Tiffany attended the private Viewpoint School in Calabasas.

In 2011, her last year of school, she released a pop song, called ‘Like A Bird’.

But instead of following her mum into showbusiness, she went on to study at the University of Pennsylvania, where she received a double major in sociology and urban studies.

She is currently attending Georgetown Law School in Washington DC.

Trump’s “favourite child” vs an awkward relationship with no contact for months

Ivanka

Ivanka is said to be Trump’s “favourite child”.

She has been publicly supportive of her father in her professional life, previously joining the family business and appearing on his show, The Apprentice.

She endorsed his presidential campaign in 2015 and has been full of praise for her dad’s leadership skills and his empowerment of others.

She now formally acts as adviser to the President.

Ivanka is known for her stylish wardrobe and glamorous appearance – with even her father counted among her admirers.

When Ivanka, then 16, was hosting the Miss Teen USA pageant, Trump allegedly asked the reigning Miss Universe: “Don’t you think my daughter’s hot? She’s hot, right?”

And in 2006, he remarked that Ivanka had a “very nice figure” on TV talk show The View, adding: “I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

As well as her close relationship with her dad, Ivanka adores her mum.

Tiffany

Tiffany doesn’t appear to be as close to Trump as Ivanka, perhaps unsurprising, due to the geographical distance between her and her father while she was growing up.

Last year, it was reported that Tiffany’s relationship with her dad had become more strained since he took office in January 2017 and they’d often go months without speaking.

“Tiffany and her father have sometimes gone for months without speaking and she went a very long time without seeing him,” a source told People at the time.

In her first book The Trump Card, Ivanka recalls how when Tiffany wanted a credit card from Daddy to splash out on luxuries like her pals, it was Ivanka who came to her rescue.

With Trump wrapped around her little finger, Ivanka suggested that he surprise his youngest daughter with a credit card for Christmas with a small monthly allowance on it.

And her father did just that.

It is the sole mention of her sister in the book. “All she wanted, really, was a way to enjoy some of the privileges her friends got to enjoy,” Ivanka writes.

And although their relationship might not be perfect, Tiffany expressed her love for her dad on Instagram in February: “I love you so much and we are so proud of you!”

Like Ivanka, Tiffany is also very close to her own mum. She recently told Marla: “I wouldn’t be where I am today without your unconditional love.”


Despite her very different life from Ivanka, Tiffany also counts her sister among her pals.

She recently referred to Ivanka as her “best friend”, writing in an Instagram post: “Wishing my big sister and best friend a happy birthday… I love you so much!”
