This year, 34-year-old prince – Charles the Crown Prince and the late Princess Diana’s second son, II. Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter – and the engagement of the 37-year-old American actress was announced at the end of November. The wedding will be on May 19 in Windsor, England’s oldest royal residence.
The Kensington Palace – Harry’s London residence and office – has announced last month that a total of 2640 invitations to the ceremony will be announced, but the newer details released on Tuesday reveal that there was no active and politically motivated party among the invited.
Accordingly, Theresa May British Prime Minister and US President Donald Trump will not be present in St George’s Chapel in Windsor.
Until now, there have been persistent guesses that Trump’s immediate predecessor, Barack Obama’s former US president and wife, Michelle Obama, with whom Harry is in close friendships, may be among the invited, but they will not be there at the ceremony on Tuesday afternoon.
Of the 2640 invited, 1200 at Harry and Meghan Markle’s special request, the Royal Lieutenant Offices are selected from all over the country, sorting out of the widest possible age and social background.
According to a statement by the Kensington Palace Tuesday, there will be 12-year-old Amelia Thompson, who was injured in the cataclysmic terrorist attack in Manchester in May last year. At the Manchester Arena event, a suicide bomber killed at least 22 people, including seven children. Among the injured 117 in need of hospital care, there were also many children.
Harry’s brother, Prince William, who is the future president of the British throne-and his wife, Princess Katalin’s seven-year-old world wedding ceremony, held in the ancient London crowning church in the Westminster Abbey in the presence of two thousand guests, many politicians were present, including British Prime Minister David Cameron , Deputy prime minister Nick Clegg, and head of several Commonwealth members of the British colonies, including Australian Julia Gillard and John Key, New Zealand prime minister.
The primary reason for this is that after his father, King Charles the Prince, will be ruler and will be the head of the United Kingdom. Prince Harry, however, is currently fifth in the throne line, and even after William and Katalin’s third child is expected to arrive sixth in the day, and is unlikely to ever wear the British crown.
