President Obama and his wife Michelle will not be invited to Prince William's wedding next year.
Royal sources revealed yesterday that the American President and his wife are not among the congregation as William's wedding to Kate Middleton is not classed as a 'state occasion' - as the Prince is not yet heir to the throne.
Courtiers suggested they are more eager to ask ordinary citizens and charity workers than foreign dignitaries and VIPs at the 'people's wedding'. Uninvited: Royal sources have revealed that President Obama and his wife Michelle are not going to be invited to the Royal wedding as it is not classed as a state occasion
The Mail also understands that the couple are under no pressure to fill the 2,000 seats at Westminster Abbey with foreign dignitaries.
Despite the Obamas not being invited, a number of heads of state are likely attend the ceremony on April 29 in line with previous royal weddings, possibly including France's president Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni.

GOOD! They don’t deserve to be invited to the opening of new porta-pottys either.
Well then..no ipod for Prince William.
They didn’t want the silverware to go missing.
Oh cmon, they are gonna need a DVD collection as a wedding gift.
Michelle would critique the main course and tried to force all broccoli and spinach....
Actually, I think it is more in fear of what Michelle would be wearing.
Just the thought is enough to curdle milk.
They know Obama hates England, anyway. Soetoro and Moochelle would only find ways to embarrass America and offend the English.
They are not BLUE blood anyway...
They'll just have to recall their own wedding day in Chicago at United Church of Christ.
Hopefully, we've been save the embarrassment of some cheesy gift they would have given in our name.
It’s just as well.
The sycophantic American press would go on and on about how much more stunning Michelle Obama is than the bride.
Or Obama could give the Prince an Ipod with all his speeches already downloaded onto it. The Queen sure seemed to love hers.
Dismantle the TSA and send them all to secure our borders.
Mooch-shell Antoinette and the Obama THUGOCRACY will NOT be amused and will demand another all expenses paid $200 MILLION DOLLAR A DAY globetrotting vacation to some exotic/”exclusive” (can’t be seen mingling with the riffraff peasants) destination on the backs of the American tax payers.
Reprisal for the Winston Churchill bust return
One of the "WON's" first acts in office was to send the bust of Churchill back to England, like a thing of disgust.
But then, Muslims still have a fatwa against Churchill from his book over 100 years ago - in which he nails them with 100% accuracy.
Your silverware jab got me to thinking of the Clintons and how it may be something of a snub to them as well if they’re not invited. I’d think they would have had more interaction with William over the years, likely including when Chelsea was over there.
