Why weren’t the Obamas or a U.S. representative like H. Clinton invited to the royal wedding? The king of Swaiziland (?) is invited! –Marianne, Tewksbury
The guest list for the royal wedding featured music stars, celebrity athletes, and royalty from around the world…but not the Obamas. The first family was not invited, which some saw as a snub. But people close to Prince William say that since the Prince is not yet the heir to the throne, he was not under pressure to fill the guest list with heads of state. Also not making the cut, former British Prime Ministers Tony Blair & Gordon Brown.
I think Obama has enough to do here anyway.
