The Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is in full swing planning mode for the spring, and it looks like President Trump will not be receiving an invitation. The UK Government hasn’t officially commented on the guest list, but it does not seem likely that Trump will be invited.
Since Markle is an American citizen, it would be typically expected that she would invite the President, but the couple have reportedly been overly critical of Trump, with US Weekly reporting that the Prince “is not a fan” of Trump, and Markle also threatened to leave the US if he became President.
Newsweek commented that “If Trump were to appear at Prince Harry’s wedding in spring 2018, it would likely spark protests. The risk of embarrassment, were such a protest to occur at a royal wedding, might put the couple off inviting such a controversial figure.”
On the other hand, Prince Harry and Markle will be extending an invitation to Former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle.
The Obama family have a great relationship with Harry and his older brother, the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, and have been hosted at Kensington Palace in the past.
Do you think Trump should be invited to the Royal Wedding??
