The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was perhaps the hottest event of 2018. Everyone was shocked to discover that the Obamas didn’t get an invite, especially since they are friendly with the royal couple.

But Harry and Meghan couldn’t invite the Obamas without inviting President Trump since a snub would cause political tension. So the Royal House decided that since Prince Harry wasn’t likely to become king, inviting international leaders wasn’t necessary. Still, it was unfortunate to see the Obamas absent from the list of celebs at the wedding, especially since they go way back.
