Obama even tweeted congratulations to Harry and Meghan when they got engaged.
It seems pretty likely the Obamas are on the guest list. Who wouldn’t want the Obamas at their wedding?!
But the soon-to-be royal couple has made it clear they are not fans of Trump.
Meghan tweeted comments last election season voicing her disapproval.
Tensions are already high between Trump and the UK, after Prime Minister Theresa May called him out for retweeting anti-Muslim content.
And then Trump took 13 days to respond to her.
It’s not really a secret that Trump hates Obama (he says it all the time), but will a snub from the wedding while the Obamas are welcomed with open arms make him mad enough to mess up relations with the UK even further? It’s hard to say.
While the UK government might be worried about the guest list, they don’t actually have a say.
The guest list does not need to be approved by the UK government, only by Buckingham Palace. It’s really up to Harry and Meghan who they want attending their wedding and it’s not necessarily traditional to invite the current American president.
Since they know the Obamas and not Trump, it does seem pretty likely the Trumps will be left off the guest list.
Trump has not met the couple, although Melania did meet Harry at the Invictus Games this September. Trump has a bit of a creepy history with Harry’s mother Diana, as well, apparently he tried to court her after she divorced from Harry’s father Prince Charles and reportedly Diana said Trump gave her the creeps. Looks like a certain presidential family is likely not getting an invite to this event. We hope nobody already bought a hat.
