It's already known that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have opted to NOT invite political leaders to their big royal wedding—and yes, this includes Donald Trump! Even former U.S. president, Barack Obama, was left out of the big day.
According to CNN, Kensington Palace announced that the royal couple would not be inviting political leaders to the event, at least not on the basis of their official position and that they were only inviting personal friends.
They're also inviting a group of people, who are not leaders or celebrities, but rather ones with an inspirational story. The palace revealed: "The couple asked Lord Lieutenants to invite 1,200 people to join the celebrations, including young people who have shown strong leadership, and those who have served their communities."
Some of those 1,2000 guests have already gotten their invite and will be joining the couple on their wedding day on May 19. Check them out below:
