The Obamas Dine At Kensington Palace with Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry

If Prince Harry and Meghan Markle marry at Windsor Castle in May, one high profile American couple won't be in attendance.

Royal biographer Duncan Larcombe says former U.S. President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama are not on the royal guest list.

Barack, 56, struck up a warm friendship with Prince Harry, 33, who spoke at Michelle Obama's inaugural Obama Foundation summit at a school in Chicago last year. There were rumors that the former U.S. President and his wife were the first names atop Prince Harry's personal guest list.

But, according to the Daily Mail UK, there are reports that "the Foreign Office is nervous about upsetting Donald Trump," who has not officially visited England as U.S. President.

via Daily Mail -- Additionally, the royal family is supposed to remain neutral and above politics and no foreign heads of state were invited to Kate and William's wedding in 2011.

"There were religious leaders, members of the royal family, and commonwealth countries that were invited," he told

"I suspect that will be the same blueprint that Meghan and Harry will use. 'It’s all very carefully orchestrated to make sure that there's no political overtones."

    It's also the size of the venue so if the Obamas or Trump were invited the Secret Service detail would take up a lot of the limited seating.

  • Yardgirl

    This is what I was thinking too. I hate all of the know it all speculators though crowing about they will "not" be invited. I would love it if in the end they were invited! TUH!

  • Jen_no_juice

    Yep. Plus Trump would want his whole tribe there. Ain't enough room for all them

  • Blessed

    Meanwhile, Trump is the dumb as rocks lol.

    They don't want dump there. So the Obama's cant come. He is like that friend nobody likes or wants around.

  • Phillybruh

    I bet you he's invited.

  • ShWa

    That's some bullspit, I wouldn't gaf what #45 thought about who I invited to MY wedding if I were them.....

  • MzKeriBabee

    I would take George W. Bush again over him ANY DAY of the week, and I wasn't a big fan of his, and didn't feel that he was a good public speaker, but DUMP, man, he is horrible.... but Trump was the best thing for Bush's legacy....

  • University

    One of the reasons why he loves the uneducated, and why they love him, it's something they have in common.

  • Tennessean

    What about the reception? The wedding will be private so how will we know they attended or not?

  • iWasteTime

    That's a damn shame but I respect Harry's #Petty.
    I'd rather my friend not come than 45 be there !

  • iWasteTime

    I read that "I'm a like genius" tweet and cringed.


    Grow a pair of balls. If you haven't noticed things are changing and eventually so will England with the queen is no more.

  • missarewa

    I have a sneaking suspicion that the Obamas won't care...

  • Roderick2011

    Maybe they will invite the Obamas at the last minutes claiming it was due to security issues.

  • ???TheRider???

    All except Tiffany.

  • Yoni7

    In still trying to learn how to apply makeup........are Michelle's eye area suppose to still be "baking"? #imnewtothis #soimnoticingthings

  • Shira Harding-James

    I’m assuming they would like to invite them...but protocol

  • Shira Harding-James

    I’m pretty sure at this point if they are not invited, they know why and won’t take it personally. Matter of fact I’m sure a personal conversation was made between the two men and it’s a mutual understanding.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Harry don't care... this is the handlers making these decisions.

  • free

    i thought the brits could give a fugg about trump. didn't somebody over there ban him?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He didn't get banned, but when he and the British govt realized there were going to be massive protests in London for his planned visit last year, the visit got "postponed temporarily"... basically to avoid Trump the embarrassment.
    They still haven't set a new date yet (no surprise).

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That graph also represents the mindset of a lot of people who voted for him.

  • Karen Brady

    I doubt they'll lose sleep over this. NEXT.

  • Kita Williams

    LMBO bahahaha but a serious answer; it's flashback. her powder was probably yellow instead of translucent. if you want a good setting powder to bake with as well as absorb any oil in your skin (best to apply after primer, before foundation), go with Kat Von D translucent powder. it's the best that I've ever used so far

  • Yoni7

    Thank you. When I say I'm learning. I'm a NEWBORN! I don't apply the makeup. I'm just trying to figure out what goes where and what brushes to use. LOL I JUST started using concealer on my eyebrows. That's as far as I've gotten. LOL I know SOME of the lingo.....i.e. "baking" and I just found out that you bake under your eyes (not your cheeks) and along the cheekbone? Or is it the jawbone? LOL

  • leapyearpisces

    There is also some buttercup setting powder that has gotten rave reviews for baking on Amazon from women of color. You should go check it out. Let me see if I can insert the link. Well here is a picture.

  • Yoni7

    *jots this down* Thank you. LOL

  • free

    it's all too complicated for me. i wish i had started out in the avon/fashion fair eye, rouge, lipstick days but now you need like 10 items and 4 layers!

  • Yoni7

    And 34654752454234242545454524.99 brushes. LOL

  • Trace da Ace

    oh well... Barack is invited over my house ANYTIME he wants to come..... Michelle can come too, I

    I hope the Obamas are invited. Who gives two shyts how Trump feels. I just ordered Fire and Fury. I can't wait to read this!!!

  • Ryan

    trump would have the tantrum to end all tantrums if the Obamas went to the wedding and he wasn't invited. He's that dummy friend of a friend you hope don't show up to the party. Last year we had a pool party and when folks showed up this dude and his girl were already there, and nobody knew how they found out about the party. Still mostly had a good time but he got drunk and started getting belligerent AF. Yeah that would be trump.

  • Ryan

    It's GOOD. Had parts where I put it down and literally SMH.

  • teather


  • deadellamore

    I believe it cause Trump might threaten to nuke them...President Dummy!

  • deadellamore
  • Gotitbutsmh

    I suspect means you do not know. I don't think this matters to their friendship and will be worked out amongst each other.

  • Gotitbutsmh

    I'm a reader but doing my part to make sure it stays on the best sellers list also.

  • Gotitbutsmh

    I'm totally jealous of the convo. I have never learned to apply makeup but I like it. Every time I stop to look at it I get overwhelmed and leave. LOL

  • Luv Pitties

    Britain has no need to fear do do duck a la orange

  • Li

    Hmmm....we won't know what the guest list is until close to the wedding. They haven't even started planning the wedding! Geez - speculation.

  • Ebony N’ Sweet

    The Obamas got better thangs to do... These so called "Royals" don't even have any real power in the country lol

  • Karen Brady

    Umm.. you saying she can wait in the car?

  • Quitedeliteful

    I can't wait! LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!

  • suganspice68

    Me too!

  • facingrealit1

    A wedding should be about a bride/groom. If they invited Obama the press would make it about him instead of Meghan. Also, the Royals know that Obama's administration is getting some very bad press for a lot of corruption that went on under his watch. Obama will eventually be known as the most corrupt president in history. He is the type of brother that was smiling in our face and stabbing us in the back for the love of money.

  • Lolly Asher

    Only those needed for rituals will be invited.

  • Allihave2say


  • ?Royalty?

    "Obama will eventually be known as the most corrupt president in history."
    I'm not a huge Obama fan but your stretching and reaching all the way to the ends of the universe with the absurdity of this comment. ??

    Don't throw your back out.

  • facingrealit1

    Apparently you are not well-read! I know the liberal media has protected him for 8 years but trust me when I say.....Obama oversaw one of the most corrupt administrations in history and time will prove that to be true. He is an excellent orator but he was a horrible president. Remember I told you first!

  • facingrealit1

    Truth - absolute TRUTH! Remember you heard it here FIRST!

  • shay

    I bet she wore braces too

  • ?Royalty? say Im not "well-read" but you claim "time" will prove your accusations -which would mean your accusations are UNDOCUMENTED. You then go on to say his corruption will be revealed "in time" but we should "trust you"...........but if it has to be revealed "in time" then how do YOU know sweetie??

    What's really crazy is you don't realize the lunacy and contradictory nature of your own comments. ??

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Harry just interviewed my POTUS so I'm inclined to think some alternative facts are in that story somewhere.

  • V Dubb

    Im sure they will be distraught! ?

  • Gone Too Far

    He also insulted the London mayor. I don’t think the UK wants anything to do with Trump and his drama, rightfully so, so of course they’ll prolong it until they have to set a date

  • Trace da Ace

    I mean...yeah....but Ill send out a glass of ice tea while she

  • Tony Winston

    I don't believe you Sandra

  • Karen Haughton (CambodianHairC

    I just ordered my copy and can't wait to read this!

  • Ryan

    Just finished it yesterday. It's worth every dime!


    does he have a GPS ankle bracelet like Hillary, and Mc Cain? and thats why he can't go. b/c he about to get a one way ticket to Guantanamo Bay and face a military tribunal?

  • MocaPretty

    Please Harry is not about 'royal politics' it seems he pretty much does what he wants. I am sure he will invite the Obamas

  • Jethro

    But, according to the Daily Mail UK, there are reports that “the Foreign Office is nervous about upsetting Donald Trump,” who has not officially visited England as U.S. President.

    Why would anyone outside of Trump's mis administration care about "upsetting" a person who is perpetually upset? Who will you cite next, MTO?
