They were seated in the front row, with the Clintons and Obamas.
An awkward moment took place when when the Trumps arrived.
First lady Melania immediately shook hands with the Obamas and Bill Clinton. President Trump then shakes hands with the Obamas as well.
During the whole cordial exchange, Hillary refuses to even acknowledge the presence of the Trumps and looks stone faced, straight forward.

You may recall, during President Trump’s inauguration, Bill Clinton was busted by cameras and Hillary, smiling at Melania.
The Sun reported that the husband of Democrat candidate candidate Hillary definitely appeared to have his attention grabbed by something, and it wasn’t the billionaire but his wife Melania.

Five presidents were seated together Wednesday at the funeral of former President George H.W. Bush.
As the casket of H.W. Bush was welcomed to the National Cathedral for a state funeral in Washington D.C., both President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama shook hands. Trump also shook hands with former first lady Michelle Obama. Trump and the Obamas have sparred publicly for years, but the contentious relationship between the presidents seemed to warm for just a moment in the front row of the National Cathedral.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton were seated further down the pew. While Trump and Hillary did not even attempt to shake hands at the ceremony, their significant others did. As Melania was entering the pew, she reached out to Bill Clinton who smiled and shook her hand.
Both Melania and Bill watched Hillary and Trump duke it out in the 2016 election — ending in Trump’s stunning election night victory. The two candidates reportedly have not met since the presidential inauguration.
