It looks like Former President Obama and Former First Lady Michelle Obama will not be going to the Royal Wedding this May.

According to Harper’s Bazaar, despite their close relationship with the former first couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle plan on keeping their wedding politic-free. This also means, the Trumps and the British Prime Minister Theresa May didn’t get an invite either.

Bazaar noted that a Kensington Palace spokesperson told Daily Express royal reporter Richard Palmer: “It has been decided that an official list of political leaders—both U.K. and international—is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle’s wedding. Her Majesty’s Government was consulted on this decision, which was taken by The Royal Household.”

Apparently, since Prince Harry will not be the country’s future king, he is not obligated to invite people who are heads of states.

This is all news to us, since we’ve been under the impression that the Obamas would be invited. However, we did know that President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump would not be attending since he admitted it earlier this year.

Either way, we’re pretty sure the Obamas don’t have any hard feelings.

As we previously reported, the day the couple announced their engagement, Obama wished the couple well via Twitter.
