Royal sources revealed yesterday that President Obama and his wife Michelle will not be invited to the royal wedding on 29th April next year…..
The reason that the President and his wife will not be among the congregation between Prince William and Kate Middleton is because the wedding is not classed as a ‘state occasion’, owing to the fact that the Prince is not yet heir to the British throne….
It has also been suggested that the young couple are more eager to invite ‘ordinary citizens’ and charity workers than foreign dignitaries and VIP’s, to what is being classed as the ‘peoples wedding’.
But despite President Obama and his wife Michelle not being invited to the royal wedding it is expected that a number of heads of state are likely to attend the ceremony which will help to fill the 2,000 seats at Westminster Abbey….
I think what's interesting is that they don't really think that the president may want to attend, because of all the extra security: helicopters flying above, things like that. That may be a little bit more intrusive (than the Royal Family wants), I think."
As Examiner.com previously reported President Barack Obama is not likely to attend the royal wedding due to security reasons. First Lady Michelle Obama, however, will likely be at Westminster Abbey to see the couple second in line to the thrown tie the knot.
