Royal wedding guest list: No Trumps, Obamas or other politicians

Royal wedding guest list: No Trumps, Obamas or other politicians

While that sounds lovely, there is a definite downside to the decision: Former U.S. President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle won't be on the guest list.

Around 600 people have been invited to the wedding, which will take place at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, which is about about an hour away from London. In a sidestep move, it just meant that politicos aren't invited to the special day of Prince Harry and Markle.

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. We haven't even put the invite or the guest list together.

Despite former USA president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama's close friendship with Prince Harry over the years, it looks like the couple will not be attending his upcoming wedding to Meghan Markle in May.

"The couple have therefore asked that anyone who might wish to mark the occasion considers making a donation to charity, rather than sending a wedding gift", the statement from the royal website said.

Australia with 109 medals, including 41 gold continues to top the tally followed by England with 69 medals, including 23 gold. Elena Galiabovitch of Australia scored 35 to take silver while Malaysia's Alia Sazana Azahari got bronze with 26.


Instead, Kensington Palace has confirmed that among the 2,640 people invited to the celebrations at Windsor Castle will be 1,200 members of the public, including activists and charity workers, many of them young people.

CNN said that some world leaders may be invited on the basis of their personal relationships with Harry and Meghan.

Prince Harry has made several public appearances with the Obamas during their time in the White House and beyond, always notably looking to be at ease and enjoying himself.

The Government source noted that the wedding venue, St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, was significantly smaller than Westminster Abbey, where Prince Harry's older brother William Wednesday Kate Middleton in 2011.

The qualified pastry chef and former English teacher said: "Harry and Meghan came to Millennium Point (Birmingham), and got to taste our macaroons which was really fun".

Among the other guests will be Philip Gillespie from Ballymena who lost his right leg in an IED incident in Afghanistan.

Also on the list is Amelia Thompson, 12, who was caught up in the suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester that killed 22 people past year.

She can take a guest and planbs to give that ticket to Sharon Goodman, whose granddaughter Olivia Campbell-Hardy, 15 died in the attack.

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