According to Etsy, Meghan Markle is actually marrying Ed Sheeran

According to Etsy, Meghan Markle is actually marrying Ed Sheeran

The Daily Mail has reported that Meghan and Harry are leaving former US President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, current President Donald Trump, and UK Prime Minister Theresa May off the guest list for their special day because Harry isn't heir to the throne, so the invite list doesn't need to be that formal. The 2011 royal wedding had 260 government officials invited, so it is safe to say that the nearing big day will have a smaller crowd.

In that case, a picture of Prince Harry was printed on the mug by mistake. At the wedding of Harry's parents, Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, US first lady Nancy Reagan was among the dignitaries in attendance (though president Ronald Reagan sent his regrets because he was attending an economic summit).

Wedding guests will be people who have an existing direct relationship with one or both of the couple, a Royal source said.

It was also confirmed Prince Harry's friends Barack and Michelle Obama had not been invited.

According to the official Kensington Palace statement, the decision to not invite the heads of state was thoroughly and thoughtfully considered.

"It has been decided that an official list of political leaders - both United Kingdom and global - is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle's wedding", a Kensington Palace spokesman said.

"Celebrate the wedding of the year with this handsome china plate featuring the portraits of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle", the description reads.

Other members of the public invited include Catherine Cooke, 53, and Julie-Ann Coll, 35, a mother and daughter team nominated for their work in helping people cope with child bereavement.

Prince Harry, 33, and Meghan Markle, 36, are set for a very different kind of royal wedding, having announced on Monday that guests should consider donations to their chosen charities in place of showering them with wedding gifts.

Amelia Thompson, 12, who was caught up in the 2017 Manchester attack was invited, along with Welsh woman and charity volunteer Zoe Arundell, 20.

Guest lists have been problematic for many royal couples in the past.

Invitees include an east London teenager working to prevent knife crime, a Birmingham teen tackling racism and mental health issues in her community, and anti-bullying activists.
