Trump, May, Obamas not on guest list for royal wedding

The Obamas reportedly will not attend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have asked people to consider donating to charity instead of buying them a wedding present, Kensington Palace has announced. The decision was made due to the size of the venue - St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, smaller than Westminster Abbey - and Prince Harry's status in the monarchy.

After consulting with the British government, the royal family chose against inviting U.S. President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama, The Guardian reported.

The 600 people who were fortunate enough to receive an invite are likely to include Harry and Meghan's close friends. The British government source said there had been no expectation from May's office that the prime minister would be invited.

The list included people from charity organisations as well as veterans from the armed forces who have suffered serious injuries in combat.

Who is not invited to the Royal Wedding?

The wedding guests will be people who have an existing direct relationship with the groom or the bride or with both, said a source at Kensington palace, the official residence of William and Harry.

Teenager Reuben Litherland, who has been campaigning for deaf-friendly screenings at cinemas, also made the list. Philip Gillespie from Ballymena who lost his right leg in an IED incident in Afghanistan and works to raise funds and awareness for ABF The Soldiers' Charity.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting married in just over a month, and with the preparations for the big day well underway, Kensington Palace have now released a few more details about the couple's guest list for the wedding.

That will give them an excellent vantage point to see the royals arrive at the chapel and to see Harry and Markle's carriage procession after the wedding ceremony.

Also, an official from White House confirmed that neither Trump nor his wife and First Lady Melania was invited to the royal wedding.
