Why the Obamas aren’t invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding?

Former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama did not make the cut for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding invite list, according to a report.

“It has been decided that an official list of political leaders  both UK and international, is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle’s wedding,” a Kensington Palace spokesman told CNN.

“Her Majesty’s Government was consulted on this decision, which was taken by the Royal Household,” the representative added in a written statement.

On Monday, the Palace confirmed that the Obamas won’t be attending. According to Rebecca English, the couple decided not to invite any political leaders — from abroad or in the U.K. — to the event, which they’re apparently allowed to do since Prince Harry is not the direct heir to the throne.

 


But even though the Obamas aren’t invited, sources told that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle “are very much looking forward to seeing them soon.” In the meantime, we guess Trump can stop checking his mailbox for a royal-wedding invite.
