Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s wedding may see the joining of a Brit and an American in matrimony, but new reports say that the British government worries that the guest list may cause tension. The British government is reportedly concerned that President Donald Trump will be offended if he is not invited to Harry and Meghan’s wedding and former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are.
According to The Sun, Harry and Meghan have told government aides that they’d like to invite the former first couple to their May 19 wedding, but that reportedly has the UK government nervous that Trump will be upset that if his predecessor snags an invite and he does not — especially before he’s even had a chance to meet Queen Elizabeth herself.
“Harry has made it clear he wants the Obamas at the wedding, so it’s causing a lot of nervousness,” a source told The Sun. “Trump could react very badly if the Obamas get to a Royal wedding before he has had a chance to meet the Queen.”
Apparently, Harry is tight with the Obamas after working with them on various charity events and such.
Is this a political event that world leaders must be invited?
