Donald Trump, Theresa May have not been invited to royal wedding

Neither Former President Barack Obama nor his wife Michelle are invited to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding.

A Kensington palace spokesperson told royal reporter Richard Palmer that there will be not official guest list for the wedding.

It seemed that the royal wedding is steer clearing from politics as Kensington Palace announced that political leaders are "not required" in the May 19 event.

The decision was reached after royal officials consulted with the British government to go over protocol and precedent.

Invites have also been sent out to members of the public, who have been asked to join the celebrations at Windsor Castle for the couple's big day.

600 people received official invites to the ceremony, along with a further 1,200 outstanding members of the public invited to the reception.

"Myna Mahila Foundation is delighted to be a part of this special occasion for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry".

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not invited political leaders to their wedding. She will take grandmother Sharon Goodman, who lost her grand-daughter in the bombing, as her plus one. Others speculate that Prince Harry and Markle's wedding venue, St. George's Castle, is comparably smaller than Westminister Abbey, where Middleton and Prince William tied the knot, so the list is reserved for relatives.

Deaf schoolboy Reuben Litherland, who started sign language lessons at his school, has also been invited.

Her organisation reinvests profits into developing disadvantaged young people's potential, training them as chefs and offering them real world experience.

The 12-year-old, who was born with only a right leg, is an ambassador for the Steel Bones charity which supports civilian amputees, she added: "They thought I would be a good candidate".

A fan of Wallis Simpson, the American socialite who married a British king 80 years ago, is hoping to capitalize on the attention around the upcoming British royal wedding by putting up for auction his collection of memorabilia.

Twelve-year-old Amelia Thompson who was caught up in last year's Manchester Arena terror attack in which 23 people were killed and hundreds more injured, is also on the list.
