Ontario teen scores invitation to royal wedding

"Her Majesty's government have consulted on this decision of the Royal court", - said the representative of the press service.

There had been a speculation which the Obamas could be encouraged as a result of this personal rapport between your former president and Harry, but nevertheless, it could have been diplomatically embarrassing to invitation the Obamas and never the Trumps.

A palace source, speaking on the condition of anonymity following protocol, said Prince Harry and Markle hoped to see the Obamas soon, but confirmed that they would not be attending the wedding.

Though reports circulated that the royal family was afraid that extending an invite to the Obamas would offend the current president, it's more likely that the reason for the tight guest list has to do with location. Still, this is a departure from recent royal weddings. The royal nuptials will take place on Saturday, May 19. In a sidestep move, it just meant that politicos aren't invited to the special day of Prince Harry and Markle.

Harry is now fifth in line to the throne, but after the birth of his third niece or nephew later this month, will slip to sixth, behind the Cambridges' three children.

Kensington Palace on Tuesday named some of the 1,200 people, chosen due to their strong leadership and community service, who have been invited into the grounds of Windsor Castle on the wedding day to join the celebrations.

Prince Harry and Miss Markle have also chosen a much smaller venue than William and Kate, who were able to fit around 1,200 guests into Westminster Abbey, including then-Prime Minister David Cameron.

The last "second son" to marry was Prince Andrew, who Wednesday Sarah Ferguson at Westminster Abbey in 1986.

The notoriously thin-skinned Mr Trump has so far refused to visit the United Kingdom to accept Prime Minister Theresa May's offer of a state visit because he is concerned about negative publicity and massive protests in London, where he is deeply unpopular.

Instead, Prince Harry and Meghan appear to be basing their wedding blueprint on Prince Edward's marriage to Sophie Rhys-Jones.
