Marital bliss: Trump, Obama not invited to British royal wedding

Share

As well as the Prime Minister and Mr Corbyn, Donald Trump and former USA president Barack Obama are also absent from the couple's guest list.

At the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle there'll be celebrities, dignitaries and probably some sporting stars.

While the inscription on the plate clearly says, "To commemorate the marriage of Prince Henry of Wales" - that's Harry's birth name - "and Meghan Markle 19th May 2018", the photos of the couple are a little off.

The couple reportedly wants to keep the affair relatively intimate (as intimate as possible, considering the world will be watching) by only inviting guests who know the Harry and Meghan personally.

Despite speculation about the Obamas being invited, Kensington Palace confirmed official heads of state will be off the list in favour of close friends, in contrast to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding in 2011.

She will take her 62-year-old grandmother Pat Churches who "loves the royals".

That means that U.S. President Donald Trump will not be invited to the wedding.

"It has been decided that an official list of political leaders - both United Kingdom and worldwide - is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle's wedding", the statement reads. Others speculate that Prince Harry and Markle's wedding venue, St. George's Castle, is comparably smaller than Westminister Abbey, where Middleton and Prince William tied the knot, so the list is reserved for relatives. No Theresa May, President Trump or Obamas.

Guest lists have been problematic for many royal couples in the past.

"It was with great joy, excitement and humble gratitude that I accepted this invitation to attend the Royal Wedding celebrations on behalf of TAPS", Hosford said in an appropriately proper statement. (AAP) Harry and Meghan don't have to invite world leaders to the wedding because of Harry's position in the succession to the throne.

Some 1,200 members of the public will be among the crowds allowed into the grounds of Windsor Castle to share in the atmosphere of the royal wedding.

Invitees include an east London teenager working to prevent knife crime, a Birmingham teen tackling racism and mental health issues in her community, and anti-bullying activists.
