Obama and The Royal Wedding

I'm pretty sure President & Mrs Reagen were invited to Prince Charles and Diana's wedding...why is Obama being excluded from Kate and Will's wedding?

  • I think because we are in a time of conflict it would be too much security to protect an American President right now.

  • I thought it was racism.

  • Too much would be focused on them, what Michele was wearing etc. and not the Wedding. They want a beautiful wedding void of Obama.

  • I don't know, but I wouldn't invite him to the wedding either if I were them, lol.

  • Also Prince Charles was next to be King as he still is so there was different etiquette on who must be invited whereas Kate and William can be a little more personal who they want to invite as William is not next in line.

  • The only Heads of State invited are Commonwealth and Royal Families, motly European .

  • What Janet said, and also because the Obamas are tacky. I can't blame the brits for not inviting them. I heard Obama gave the queen an ipod full of his speeches for her birthday or something like that. Laaaame

  • Charles was/is next in line, so his wedding was more formal. Wills being one-off he gets more flexibility with his wedding; like inviting his whole platoon/unit from his days in the service. This wedding invite list seems more based on personal relationships than diplomatic obligations.

    When Harry gets married he could probably practically get away with Vegas - haha!
