Why Donald Trump and Barack Obama were not invited to royal wedding

  • Meghan Markle Prince Harry

Firstly, Windsor Castle only comfortably fits 800 people, so the couple are going to need to keep their nuptials intimate as far as a royal wedding goes. In a sidestep move, it just meant that politicos aren't invited to the special day of Prince Harry and Markle. No Theresa May, President Trump or Obamas.

Greg WilliamsWe hope Britain's Prince Harry doesn't spend his days browsing e-commerce site Etsy, because if he does, he might discover that Meghan Markle is actually marrying another world-famous British ginger.

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

The couple have bucked tradition and are keeping their 600-guest wedding intimate, keeping the guest list only to people they have a direct relationship with.

Unlike the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2011, this royal wedding is not an official state occasion and is regarded as a private ceremony, so there is no onus on the couple to invite political leaders. Everyone inside the chapel will know Harry and Meghan personally.

There had been some speculation that the Obamas might be invited due to the personal rapport between the former president and Harry, but it would have been diplomatically awkward to invite the Obamas and not the Trumps.




Although let's be honest we would probably invite Barack and Michelle if it was our wedding.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not invited Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn or other politicians to their wedding. The groom-to-be interviewed President Obama on the BBC's Radio 4 "Today" program a year ago and was asked by a BBC reporter whether the former leader would be on the guest list.

Prince Harry, left, meets with Canadian athletes alongside Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the Prince's visit to Toronto to promote the 2017 Invictus Games. But by royal standards, it's actually considered fairly conservative.

Instead the members of the public will be invited inside the grounds of Windsor Castle to join the celebrations.

The invitees come from across the United Kingdom and include charity workers, injured servicemen and young community leaders, according to a statement published Tuesday.
