Tiffany Trump has taken to Instagram to mourn the tragic passing of her friend, model Harry Brant, who died from an accidental drug overdose at the age of 24 just days earlier.

“Harry... Words can’t express how special you were and will always be to me and to all of those who had the honour to call you their friend,” the former US First Daughter wrote.

“You were such a positive bright light and shared that spirit with all of those around you. I will cherish our memories and friendship forever. I love you!” the 27-year-old added.

Tiffany, who is former US President Donald Trump’s fourth child, concluded her post with a sombre quote from 13th-century Persian poet Rumi.

She also shared a photo of herself and Harry at a glamorous New Year’s Eve 2021 party at her father's Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

Tiffany’s mother, actress Marla Maples, praised her daughter’s Instagram post, writing in the comment section, “Beautiful tribute my angel.”

Marla is Trump’s second ex-wife who he married in 1993 after beginning an affair with her while married to his first wife, Czech model Ivana Trump (née Zelníčková). Tiffany is Trump’s only child with Marla, who he divorced in 1999.

Sad passing

Harry Brant was the 24-year-old fashion star son of model Stephanie Seymour and 73-year-old billionaire Peter Brant.

His family claimed that Harry, who had struggled with addiction for years, was days away from re-entering rehab at the time of his death.

Tiffany was close friends with both Harry and his older brother, Peter Brant Jr., and the trio moved in the same elite social circles in New York City.

It’s certainly been a rollercoaster of emotions for Tiffany over the past week, with the Law graduate announcing her engagement to business executive Michael Boulos on her dad’s final day in office.

Within 24 hours, president-elect Joe Biden had been sworn in and the entire Trump family made a mass exit from the White House to Mar-a-Lago — where Melania appeared to ditch Trump on the tarmac.
