Meghan Markle’s big dream royal wedding is being dashed by the Queen who put her foot down. Princess Pushy really wanted the Obamas invited, and some royal watchers thought Meghan would whine and get her way. Well, it’s official, Michelle is fuming over not being invited to the royal wedding, and making it worse, the Queen was just caught on a hot mic making a joke about Barack.
It’s the most highly anticipated wedding of the year, and everyone is dying to know who will make it on the guest list. While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have invited over 2,000 members of the public to the ceremony, Barack and Michelle Obama will not receive an invitation.
Kensington Palace has confirmed to CNN that no political leaders, including current president Donald Trump, or even the British Prime Minister Theresa May will be invited.
CNN reports, “British royal weddings are usually grand affairs of state, where presidents and prime ministers rub shoulders with obscure European monarchs. Not so, the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.”
They add, “Kensington Palace announced on Tuesday that the royal couple would not be inviting political leaders to the event, at least not on the basis of their official position. Which means neither US President Donald Trump nor his predecessor Barack Obama will be there. Not even British Prime Minister Theresa May was deemed worthy of a place on the guest list.”
But Michelle is no longer the first lady, she’s a private citizen. Barack did his best to make sure Michelle wasn’t disappointed. Even Elle Magazine says the Obamas were trolling Prince Harry for the big invite, reporting, “The Obamas did try to get a wedding invite though. When Markle and Harry’s engagement was announced, the Obamas personally congratulated the couple on Twitter.”
Dated November 27th, the day the engagement was announced, he tweeted, “Michelle and I are delighted to congratulate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their engagement. We wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness together.”

Barack followed that up with doing a long boring interview with Harry, just to make sure he’d be invited. Probably Michelle had her dress all picked out. The shock of Obama fans was felt on social media, many blamed — who else — yep, President Trump.
“How much does anyone want to bet that This is Obama’s way of still not trying to make waves? He realizes that if he goes and the baby in the WH isn’t invited, it’s going to take up a whole day of news and take away from the Royals wedding,” tweeted “@DogginTrump.”

Then there are the whacky Obama fans who still can’t seem to fathom Barack and Michelle really were not invited. They seem to think the Obamas were invited in their fantasy world, but can’t go, well, because of Trump.
Twitter user “Michael Jackson” tweeted, “Makes me sad in a way….but I’ll bet @BarackObama being the very respectful person he is…doesn’t want to take away from the happy couples day…he knows there would be a lot of coverage of Obama going not trump/Hitler which would take away from wedding… Class act!!!”

Here’s another Obama wacko not in reality. “NonViolentProtester” tweeted, “What matters is that they got an invite, but realize they could end up being the talking point rather than eyes on the bride and groom. Class act!”

Yeah, Barack Obama didn’t bow out of anything, he just wasn’t invited. This isn’t a shocker for most people in reality, even though we all know Meghan has been a fangirl of the Obamas while she bashed Trump.
Prince Harry was put on the spot about the Obama invite back in December, and he gave a non-answer, stuttering, “Well-well, we, we haven’t put in the invites together, so who knows if he’ll be invited or not.”
The Queen had the final say, and what ticked off Meghan most was the reason the political leaders were not invited. “Prince Harry is not a direct heir to the throne there is no need to have such a formal guest list,” reported the Daily Mail.
This puts Princess Pushy’s big royal wedding into the “not so important” category, the Queen’s final stance is “it’s not a formal royal event,” while reminding her that she isn’t ever getting near the throne. She will be a “Duchess” but never a “Princess,” like her nickname the British press gave her early on in her relationship with Harry.
The Express reported, “However, among the outpourings of joy and portrayal of a fairytale relationship that all began with a blind date, notes of caution are being sounded. There are some who claim that Miss Markle’s rapid transformation from jobbing actress to the concerned citizen of the world has been just a little too calculating.”
The Queen was well aware of those reports, and that’s why she downgraded the wedding, say many royal watchers. Which brings us to the monarch being in rare form during a recent interview.
She made a joke about President Donald Trump and about Barack Obama. People Magazine reports, “At one point, the Queen and Attenborough were interrupted by the whirring of helicopters above, which led the Queen to make a joke about what the sound reminded her of.”
“Sounds like President Trump,” she deadpanned. “Or President Obama.” Of course, the leftist British commentator Charlie Proctor forgot she included Obama in her remark in his tweet, “VIDEO: ‘It sounds like President Trump’ Take a look at The Queen’s excellent sense of humor as she takes a walk around her gardens with Sir David Attenborough.”
You can bet Michelle isn’t forgetting the double slights, first no invite to the royal wedding and then the Queen includes her beloved Barack in a Trump joke. That’s got to sting the former first lady.

So as the meltdown continues from the crazed Obama fans, we all know this really was highly disappointing to Michelle and Meghan. Barack tried but failed Michelle. He really wanted to get an invite to rub shoulders with the British royals and for all the publicity. As for President Trump? I’m sure he’ll meet the Queen someday, but he’s like most men, he could care less about going to any wedding.
