Not at all surprised to see Donald Trump’s name is missing from Prince Harry, Meghan’s royal wedding guest list. May be to avoid political stiffness and embarrassment royal’s excluded both – Obamas and Trump. Also the ‘Suits’ actress had earlier criticized Trump while she was into acting career.

Also not invited at the royal wedding is UK’s Prime Minister Theresa May. Looks like the royals have decided not to invite any diplomatic tiffs, hence UK and international politicians are left off the guest list form the royal wedding.

“It has been decided that an official list of political leaders — both UK and international — is not required for Prince Harry and Ms Markle’s wedding,” a spokesman said.
