Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle have told aides they want Barack Obama and his wife Michelle at their big day on May 19.
But they never confirmed if our current President Donald Trump and his Wife Melania will attend their wedding celebration!
Harry was questioned on the matter of Trump and the Obamas’ attendance during a special appearance on the BBC’s morning show, set to air Wednesday, January 3rd, and gave a tantalizing answer: “I don’t know about that.
We haven’t even put the invites or the guest list together yet. Who knows if he’ll be invited yet or not—I wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise.”
Surprise also came from a senior UK official telling The Sun newspaper that “Harry has made it clear he wants the Obamas at the wedding, so it’s causing a lot of nervousness. Trump could react very badly if the Obamas get to a Royal wedding before he has had a chance to meet the Queen.”
The wedding is not a full state occasion and the guest list is being drawn up by Buckingham Palace, with the British government in a consultative role. It is not clear whether Downing Street would insist on Trump or a representative being invited, or whether it could block an invitation being extended to the Obamas.
President Trump’s official visit to the United Kingdom has been delayed, most likely in order to protect President Trump from the expected massive protests upon his arrival in the UK.
They should have confirmed President Trump as their number one guest without hesitation because he is President of the United States Of America and we are their allies in case Harry forgot!
What do you think will this behavior by the Royal family affect U.S. relationship with the U.K.?
