The big day is rapidly approaching and invitations have been sent! Well, except for one very important one. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle have not been invited to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. Considering the Obamas did not receive a royal fax to save the date, it’s now official: Invitations have been mailed but one will not arrive at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
According to The Daily Mail, the Queen invited 40 heads of state via gold-embossed invitations for the April 29 wedding at Westminster Abbey. Leaders from countries such as Australia, Canada and New Zealand were invited, along with Kings and Queens across Europe such as Spain, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Greece.
Despite the royal snub, the Obamas will be guests of their own state visit to the UK in May. There’s been buzz that a state visit for President Obama was set up because there would have been expensive costs associated with added security to protect him at the wedding.
