It’s the wedding event of the year where the charming Prince Harry plans to marry US beautiful US fiancee, Meghan Markle.

Can you believe that there are those pondering the issue that if the Obama family received an invitation to this much anticipated event, President Trump might feel snubbed?

I think Prince Harry is up to the task of handling this type of decision making but like many men before him, he punted..

But on December 27, 2017, he managed to book two heavy weights as guests to interview on a radio show, the former democratic President Barack Obama and his Dad,  Prince Charles.

Here’s the rest of the story…  

On December 27, 2017, BBC News published a report on Prince Harry’s interviews, “Prince Harry edits Radio 4’s Today: Obama and Charles interviewed.”

Excerpts:

“Prince Harry says he will go on using his position to “shine a spotlight” on issues close to his heart.”

“He was speaking as he guest edited BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, which focused on the armed forces, mental health, youth crime and climate change.”

“He interviewed former US president Barack Obama and his own father, Prince Charles, as part of the radio show.”

“He also said his fiancee Meghan Markle had enjoyed spending Christmas with the family “she’s never had”.

“Ahead of his wedding in May, Prince Harry said he was determined 2018 would be a “fantastic year”.

“He said: “Post-Christmas… I just hope everyone out there has had a chance to just think about the things that really matter and the difference that every single one of us can make.”

“Part of my role and part of my job is to shine a spotlight on issues that need that spotlight, whether it’s people, whether it’s causes, issues, whatever it is.

“So I will continue to play my part in society and do my job to the best of my abilities so that I can wake up in the morning and feel energised.”

In the interviews, Mr Obama said irresponsible use of social media was distorting the public’s understanding of complex issues, while the Prince of Wales said climate change was causing “untold horrors” in different part of the world.

During the day, Prince Harry sidestepped the issue of whether President Obama, Michelle and his two daughters have been invited to the upcoming wedding planned for himself and his beautiful fiance Meghan Markle.

As per the Independent report, “Prince Harry has said he and Meghan Markle are yet to workout the guest-list to their wedding, following reports of a political spat over the attendance of Barack and Michelle Obama.”

“Asked whether the former US president would come with his wife to the ceremony next year, the Prince said: “I don’t know about that.”

“Earlier this week it was claimed that the British Government is concerned that Donald Trump may feel snubbed if Mr Obama makes the guest-list.”

“Prince Harry is close to the Obamas following their collaboration during the Invictus Games, a sporting event for war veterans, in September.”

“Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, which he was guest editing, Prince Harry discussed whether the ex-Democrat president would be invited to his wedding, saying: “I don’t know about that. We haven’t put the invites or the guest-list together yet.”

“So who knows whether he’s going to be invited or not? I wouldn’t want to ruin that surprise.”

“He likened the challenge he faces with the guest-list, to that facing every couple looking to get married and said the decision was not all his, but also his fiancé’s, adding: “That’s why I’m keeping quiet.”

“However, the Prince did say he had a close relationship with Mr Obama, explaining that he was the “easiest” interview to get for his special edition of the Today programme.”

He went on: “We share the same kind of mind-set and the outlook on the charitable sector, on foundations and mainly on the youth of today.”

“A report in The Sun earlier this week quoted a “senior government source”, saying that Prince Harry had “made it clear” he wanted the Obamas at the wedding.”

“The source reportedly said: “Trump could react very badly if the Obamas get to a royal wedding before he has had a chance to meet the Queen.”

“Mr Trump was invited on an official state visit — including a meeting with the Queen — to the UK earlier this year by Theresa May, on a White House visit in which she was pictured holding hands with the President.”

“While Downing Street insists the invitation still stands, it is yet to be scheduled and has led to reports that Buckingham Palace was unhappy at the idea of the negative publicity Mr Trump may bring to the monarch.”

  1. If the Prince want’s the Obama’s at the wedding it’s a personal choice not a reflection of what the UK Government wants. Personally I wouldn’t invite the World Killing B*stard Trump as he always tries to upstage events and that wouldn’t be right here. I’m sure anyway he’ll be far too busy with his next stage of oppression against the American people.

    • Dear David Prosser,

      I am believing that the Obama family will be attending the wedding. As a matter of fact, that maneuver would pretty much guarantee that President Trump would decline an invitation if it was presented to him.

      He can’t stand to be out-staged which would be the case when the Obama family made their appearance. Think of all the headaches that would be calmed. There wouldn’t be the protests against President Trump which could put a cloud over this special day.

      Hugs, Gronda

    • Dear Horty,

      Prince Harry will get his way. Inviting President Trump is like inviting the annoying loud mouth uncle who one feels an obligation but that everyone is praying that he doesn’t show up. For me, this is a no brainier.

      Thanks a million times over for your support and for this reblog.

      Hugs, Gronda

      • As always , most welcome!! 🙏🏽 … I’m a follower of the royals since Diana. I do hope that the Obamas are invited & the Orange idiot stews in his own evil juice, in front of the world to see! 👋

  2. Prince Harry should invite both Obama and Trump, but seat Trump way in the back and give him binoculars. He can also alter the invitation to Trump with an incorrect time for the wedding, like hours after it is over. Or, just hold Trump at the airport until he produces his birth certificate as a new policy to prevent the entry of terrorists. Then, Trump can be told that Obama produced his birth certificate. 🙂

    • Dear Xena,

      I love your solutions. Frankly, the beautiful couple deserve their day to celebrate their marriage with the world in peace. Having both peace and President Trump in the same vicinity are not possible.

      All the protesters could meet the president at the airport and somehow he would be stuck there until the wedding ceremonies ended.

      Hugs, Gronda

  3. Dear Roger,

    President Trump would not take playing 3rd fiddle very well to where he would be sorely tempted to do anything to grab the spotlight.

    If he does show up, I would have him closely monitored. I would do whatever is possible to impede his tweeting capabilities.

    I am just praying that he invents an excuse to not attend the wedding.

    Hugs, Gronda
