Why the Obamas can't attend Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding
Apr 13 2018
Markle will be the first person of mixed race heritage and the second American to marry into the British royal family which has attracted a lot of global attention and debate.
Samantha Markle, who lives in Florida, reportedly unleashed a furious rant on social media claiming that the coveted guest list has omitted members of the Markle family in favor of the public.
"Out of respect and humanitarianism, the Markles should be invited if 2000 complete strangers are". "It is a real challenge", said Bob Broadhurst, a former police officer who was "Gold Commander" in charge of policing the 2011 wedding of Harry´s elder brother William to wife Kate. In fact, a royal source said: "Both the couples look forward to seeing each other soon".
More than 2,500 members of the public have also been asked to help celebrate the big day.
"This wedding, like all weddings, will be a moment of fun and joy that will reflect the characters and values of the Bride and Groom."
Harry and Markle have requested that those chosen represent a variety of ages and backgrounds and include young people who have displayed strong leadership and served their communities.
Also invited will be 200 people from various charities associated with the couple, 100 students from two local schools, 610 Windsor Castle community members and 530 Members of The Royal Households and Crown Estate.
Kensington Palace has confirmed no political leaders will get an invitation to the wedding of the year at Windsor Castle on May 19, a decision ticked-off by the May Government in the UK.
However, the palace announced on Wednesday that world leaders and politicians will not be invited to the prestigious event.
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.
