Invitations are being sent out for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding on May 19, 2018, according to the Daily Star. No one knows for sure who is on the guest list, but there have been speculations. Even though the couple has been urged to invite President Donald Trump, they want to do things their own way. Some think by inviting Obama and not Trump would outrage the current president.

Harry and Meghan want to invite their friends, which include former President Barack and Michelle Obama. Besides, Trump remembers that Meghan spoke out against him when he was campaigning to become president.

The bride-to-be called Trump misogynistic and divisive. She said if he became president, she would leave the country. The Hillary Clinton supporter has left the country.

Why the Obamas are invited

Barack Obama and Prince Harry have been friends for a long time. Their friendship has nothing to do with politics. When Prince Harry and Meghan became engaged, Obama sent a tweet wishing them a lifetime of happiness together. As much as Trump loves to tweet, he didn't reach out to them then. Back in January, he told Piers Morgan that he wants the couple to be happy because they look like a lovely couple. The invitations are still going out, but as of now, the Trumps have not received one.

Fewer guests

Prince Harry will have fewer guests at his wedding than his parents had. Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer had 3,500 guests in St. Paul's Cathedral in London in 1981. Harry will not even have close to the 1,900 guests that his brother Prince William had when he wed Kate Middleton in 2011 in Westminster Abbey.

The wedding venue for Prince Harry at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle is much smaller and will seat only 800 people.

Prince Harry's wedding won't be a state event as Prince William's wedding was. Therefore, Harry and Meghan have more leeway to plan their wedding their own way. The couple wants a more intimate setting. Like the other royal weddings of his parents and brother, Prince Harry's upcoming nuptials in May will be televised.

There will be no balcony kiss because there is no balcony at the venue. The newlyweds will take a carriage ride through the town and back so they can be seen by well-wishers. After the carriage ride, the couple will join their guests at St. George's Hall for their reception. That night, Prince Charles will host a private reception that will include the couple's family and close friends.
