British PM, Trumps, Obamas Not Invited To Prince Harry's Wedding

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.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have sent out their wedding invitations, but one couple who seemed to be some of Harry's close friends didn't get an invite: the Obamas. Her Majesty's Government was consulted. In that case, a picture of Prince Harry was printed on the mug by mistake.

First of all, it has to do with Harry's hereditary position: As soon-to-be sixth in line to the throne, his wedding is not an official United Kingdom state occasion, like his big brother's was.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not invited Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn or other politicians to their wedding.

Prince Harry, 33, and Meghan Markle, 36, are set for a very different kind of royal wedding, having announced on Monday that guests should consider donations to their chosen charities in place of showering them with wedding gifts.

Being third in line to the throne has to have some perks, because unlike Harry, big brother Wills' 2011 wedding to Kate Middleton was attended by national and foreign dignitaries and heads of state.

The third royal wedding guest who the Palace chose to name is Reuben Litherland, a schoolboy from Derby.

The invitees will be able to watch the arrivals of the bride and groom and their wedding guests at the chapel, as well as, the carriage procession as it departs from the castle after the service.

Among the other guests will be Philip Gillespie from Ballymena who lost his right leg in an IED incident in Afghanistan. Similarly, Barack supported Harry's Invictus Games in Toronto last fall.

The foundation works as a "trusted network" in Mumbai's urban slums, empowering its staff through training in women's health, English, Maths, and life skills such as self-defence.

The lucky group were nominated by the nine regional Lord Lieutenant offices after Harry and Meghan asked for those picked to come from a broad range of backgrounds and ages, including young people who have shown strong leadership, and those who have served their communities.

The ex-Royal Irish Regiment soldier said he had not told many people yet but expected his friends' reaction to be muted, compared to the feedback his girlfriend Kirsty Crawford was getting.
