Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle have gone out of the political arena by inviting former US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle to their wedding at Windsor Castle on Saturday. The pair has been advised against bringing Obama and leaving behind Trump.
A royal source notes that Harry and Meghan “want to do things their own way,” despite aides advising them to hold back on the invitation. It was feared such a move would anger Trump, and would rock diplomatic ties with his country.
Others felt that nothing will harm diplomatic ties more than Trump’s own behavior, so his anger over a wedding was deemed to be less of a consideration.
The source told Daily Star Online,
The invitations are going out now, but Mr. and Mrs. Obama still have to respond. I am very, very sure they will attend, though.
Harry and Meghan want to do things their own way. They are inviting their own friends, and not on the advice of aides.
