UK govt Prince Harry not to invite OBAMA
It is common knowledge that Prince Harry and Prince William are close friends with Barack and Michelle Obama and there’s a possibility they could get invited for Harry’s wedding in May 2018. It is also common knowledge that the royals do not care so much for Donald Trump who has said some degrading things about their late mother, Princess Diana.
A report released on Christmas Day by The Sun claims that the 33-year-old royal and his wife-to-be hope to invite the Obamas, but not the current White House inhabitants. UK government officials are worried such a move could enrage the current U.S. president and they are reportedly trying to make sure that doesn’t happen.
“Harry has made it clear he wants the Obamas at the wedding, so it’s causing a lot of nervousness,” a senior government official told The Sun according to the report. “Trump could react very badly if the Obamas get to a Royal wedding before he has had a chance to meet the Queen.”
The wedding will not be subject to the full regulations of a state wedding, but the government will play a “consultative role” and could put significant pressure on Buckingham Palace — which is controlling the guest list — to keep the Obamas off the guest list if they fear it could have damaging impacts to international relations between the two countries.
The relationship between Britain and the U.S. has been icy in recent months, with British lawmakers repeatedly criticising the president over his various comments and actions.
British Prime Minister, Theresa May, went as far as to say the president was “wrong” after he retweeted anti-Islam videos originally posted by a leader of a far-right British fringe party.
The London mayor has said the president shouldn’t be invited for an official state visit, and parliament debated banning him from the country before he took office
