This Is Who You *Won't* Be Seeing At The Royal Wedding

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.

That part of the guest list hasn't been publicly disclosed, but will include people the royal couple know personally.

The decision was reached after royal officials consulted with the British government to go over protocol and precedent. Considering Prince Harry served in Afghanistan and himself had some close calls with IEDs, it's clear why Gillespie received an invite.

Unlike William, Harry is not likely one day to occupy the throne. It was widely believed that the Obamas had the inside track, after Prince Harry and Mr. Obama forged a friendship while attending the Invictus Games in Toronto past year.

But despite Harry and Meghan's royal nuptials being an important national occasion, the prince is not in the immediate line of succession, unlike his brother William. Downing Street also confirmed that Prime Minister May will not be in attendance.

The royal couple have decided not to invite world leaders and political figures in their official capacities, Kensington Palace said.

ITK has learned that all guests attending the big event will have a pre-existing relationship with the couple, rather than be there due to their title or position. As previously reported by DFR, 2,640 Brits will be invited to the grounds of Windsor Castle to watch the happy couple arrive and leave the chapel.

"Members of the public from around the United Kingdom have this week learned that they will be amongst the 2,640 people at Windsor Castle for Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle's wedding".
