Barack Obama, Theresa May not invited to royal wedding

11 April, 2018, 08:06 | Author: Julio Duncan

The couple will have no have political guests at their wedding on May 19 at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.

The 2017 Young Mayor of Lewisham, Laurelle Henry, 14, will be joining Prince Harry and Ms Markle on their special day.

Rumors about the guest list - specifically the inclusion or not of the Obamas and President Trump - have been swirling for months. The description encourages you to "celebrate THE wedding of the year with this lovely china plate featuring the portraits of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle".

"Those in attendance will be people who one or both of the couple has a existing direct relationship with", a royal source told PEOPLE.

WORTHY winners last night celebrated gaining a "golden ticket" to watch the Royal Wedding.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have asked people who wish to mark the royal wedding to make a donation to charity rather than sending a wedding gift.

Harry and Meghan are doing it their own way, that's for sure.


The Sun previously claimed that United Kingdom government officials had voiced warnings over Harry's wish to invite Barack and Michelle to the wedding.

Harry has been a big supporter of the Invictus Games, where wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and their associated veterans take part in sports including wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball\ and indoor rowing. The Associated Press reported Tuesday that the guest list for the much-anticipated event consists largely of family and friends. But by royal standards, it's actually considered fairly conservative.

On that occasion, Buckingham Palace responded that Major was invited in his role as former guardian of William and Harry when their mother Diana died in 1997, not for his status as a former prime minister.

This included people who have shown strong leadership and those who have served communities.

According to The Express, 600 people will be invited to the ceremony, 200 of whom will attend the exclusive evening celebrations at Frogmore House. Another 1,200 people will be welcomed into the castle's grounds.

The 52-year-old from Haringey, London, will take her 15-year-old son Jude Anomneze-Collins as her plus one, after he made a heartfelt plea to attend alongside her.
