  • Theresa May is not invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding on May 19.
  • A spokesperson for Prince Harry said: ‘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 spokesperson for Kensington Palace has announced that British Prime Minister Theresa May will not be attending the royal wedding on May 19.

According to Sky News, Prince Harry’s official spokesman said: “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.

“Her Majesty’s Government was consulted on this decision, which was taken by The Royal Household.”

A Downing Street spokesman also confirmed to CNN that the Prime Minister has not been invited

May will not be attending the wedding, despite the fact that her predecessor David Cameron attended the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding on April 29, 2011.

This means that President Donald Trump and Barack and Michelle Obama will also not be attending Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, according to reports.

However, the Obamas were not invited to Will and Kate’s wedding, so it’s not surprising that Prince Harry and Markle didn’t extend the invite either.
