Donald Trump not invited to Harry and Meghan's wedding

American president Donald Trump and his predecessor Barack Obama will not attend the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on May 19 as the couple have decided not to invite world leaders in their official capacities, USA media reported today.

Harry and Meghan are doing it their own way, that's for sure.

Prince Harry and first lady Michelle Obama embrace during a visit to Fort Belvoir, Va., on October 28, 2015. Despite the brewing bromance between the former president and Prince Harry, the couple has made a decision to exclude all political leaders in the United Kingdom and internationally.

President Obama did not attend Prince William's wedding, but leaders from commonwealth countries including Australia and New Zealand were on the guest list.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have decided not to invite frontline politicians to their wedding next month, meaning that Theresa May and President Trump will miss out on the chance to attend.

The sampling of Harry and Markle's invited guests released Tuesday reflect the couple's charitable interests, especially former Army captain Harry's advocacy for wounded veterans. St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, where the prince and the American actress are set to Wednesday, is much smaller than Westminister Abbey, where the last royal wedding was held.

Former prime minister David Cameron was invited to the 2011 wedding of Harry's brother Prince William, who is second in line to the throne after their father Prince Charles. Similarly, Barack supported Harry's Invictus Games in Toronto last fall.

Kensington Palace announced in March that 1,200 members of the public would be among the crowds allowed into the grounds of Windsor Castle during the 19 May wedding at St George's Chapel.

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.

As for who will be attending the event, wedding-watchers can count on Harry and Markle's closest friends, as well as select members of the public.
