  • Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Invite Members Of British Public To Wedding, Leave Trump And Obama Off Guest List

Kensington Palace said, "It has been decided that an official list of political leaders - both United Kingdom and worldwide - is not required" for the wedding.

It seemed that the royal wedding is steer clearing from politics as Kensington Palace announced that political leaders are "not required" in the May 19 event. "Her Majesty's government was consulted on this decision, which was taken by the royal household". This means U.S. President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May will also be excluded from the day's festivities.

The list included people who ran a wide variety of charity organizations as well as veterans from the armed forces who have suffered life-changing injuries.

Instead, 1,200 members of the public who are perceived by the couple to have made an impact within their community have been invited alongside guests with a close relationship to the couple.

Nevertheless, reports claim that Harry and Meghan will meet with the Obamas in the near future in a more informal setting.

Obama, who was then in office, was not invited to that wedding and the United States was represented by its ambassador to the United Kingdom. She will take grandmother Sharon Goodman, who lost her grand-daughter in the bombing, as her plus one.

Kensington Palace said the decision was based on the fact Prince Harry is only fifth - soon to be sixth - in line to the throne.
