LONDON—It will be friends and family, rather than politicians and world leaders, at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.
Kensington Palace says “it has been decided that an official list of political leaders — both U.K. and international — is not required” for the wedding.
That means U.S. President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May are not among 600 people invited to the May 19 ceremony at Windsor Castle’s St. George’s Chapel.
A person with knowledge of the guest list who spoke on condition of anonymity says former U.S. president Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, also are not invited.
Many politicians and world leaders attended the much larger 2011 wedding of Harry’s older brother, Prince William, and Kate Middleton. The rules of succession mean that, unlike William, Harry is unlikely to one day occupy the throne.
