Ivanka Trump, daughter of US President Donald Trump, has been given her own West Wing office, confirming her position as a key member of her father's White House team.
When she moved to Washington earlier this year, Ivanka said she would not be playing a formal role in the administration.
However, it was confirmed that the first daughter now has a West Wing office next to senior adviser Dina Powell, who serves on the National Security Council.
Ivanka will get access to classified information and be given security clearance.
Ivanka has been a very visible presence during Trump's first two months in the White House, participating in meetings with Shinzo Abe, the Japanese prime minister, Justin Trudeau, the Canadian prime minister, and Angela Merkel, the German chancellor.
Her regular presence has raised eyebrows because she has no official position.
Jamie Gorelick, a lawyer and ethics adviser for Ivanka, detailed her new privileges and said she would follow the ethics rules that apply to government employees.
