The Obamas reportedly will not attend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding

Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Invite Members Of British Public To Wedding, Leave Trump And Obama Off Guest List

Despite former US president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama's close friendship with Prince Harry over the years, it looks like the couple will not be attending his upcoming wedding to Meghan Markle in May.

Instead "those in attendance will be people who one or both of the couple has a existing direct relationship with", a royal source told People.

It was previously reported that Barack and Michelle Obama wouldn't attend Harry and Meghan Markle's nuptials, despite the prince's friendship with the former president and first lady.

"Myna Mahila Foundation is delighted to be a part of this special occasion for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry".

Harry is now fifth in line for the throne and will be demoted to sixth once Middleton gives birth to her third child later this month.

Prince Harry and first lady Michelle Obama embrace during a visit to Fort Belvoir, Va., on October 28, 2015. Barack and Harry have enjoyed quite the bromance over the years, with Harry interviewing the former POTUS back in December in an intimate chat.

It also seems that British Prime Minister Theresa May hasn't made the cut.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are to break with tradition for their wedding, with United Kingdom and foreign politicians not on the official guest list. In contrast, Prince William's 2011 wedding to Kate Middleton featured an extended invitation list of politicians and foreign dignitaries - due to the presumption that William will one day become the ruling monarch. The couple reportedly wants to keep the affair relatively intimate (as intimate as possible, considering the world will be watching) by only inviting guests who know the Harry and Meghan personally.

The royal couple chose to instead invite members of the pubic to their wedding.

The invitees will be able to watch the arrivals of the bride and groom and their wedding guests at the chapel, as well as, the carriage procession as it departs from the castle after the service.

The engagement of the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II sparked a flurry of speculation that Trump may be on the guest list - especially as Markle is a USA citizen.

Invited guests include a mother who uses the arts to help people with mental health issues and a schoolgirl who was caught up in the Manchester Arena suicide bombing past year. Harry and Markle have requested that those chosen represent a variety of ages and backgrounds and include young people who have displayed strong leadership and served their communities.
