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'.

The Mail also understands that the couple are under no pressure to fill the 2,000 seats at Westminster Abbey with foreign dignitaries.

Pookie and the Wookie not invited?!
(Wise move on Bill and Kate’s part!)
Sounds positively proletarian. Maybe they can all don worker uniforms.
I'm sure the Obamas are doubly disappointed at this snub.
Do you have any photos of him stuffing his mouth with pork?
Didn’t Obama snub a state dinner his first trip to Europe so he could take his wife out? Alone. Charles doesn’t want a whipped man around his kids.
I wouldn’t invite them to any family affair either.Why invite evil in to a joyful occasion?
Yeah, I heard that Prince William said “no ghetto at my wedding”!!!! Har Har Har!!!
Bitches don wan me eatin' their Hours De'Overies? $%^&% that! Gunna do 'nother Europeein Va-Ca anyhow. Takin' 400 sisters wit me.
I'll bet he's gotten more threats than any other president in the history of our country!!!
Neither one of them are welcome in my humble apartment, for any reason, at any time, ever!
Couldn’t agree more!
England should tell our party boy and his wife that if they take the bust of Winston Churchill back and publicly apologize for sending it back and plant a big kiss on the forehead of the bust, they will then be allowed into the country for the wedding.
HAHAHAH!! The Royals, the older ones have CLASS!
The invite is in the mail...
President Ronald Reagan would have been front and center....
Maybe they dont trust Michelle MarBelle to know which fork to use...
Or even to recognize a fork...
Oh and how about her clothes...shudder...
Of course he could always go as a Kenyan prince...
I really like your future King William and his soon-to-be bride. I think Diana’s sons are good guys, and I hope neither ever gets interested in their goofy father’s *interests*.
I am certain Her Majesty has no use at all for the Obama’s...LOL.
President Obama and his wife Michelle will not be invited to Prince William's wedding next year.Kate Middleton just B*tch-Slapped Bigfoot Moochelle. (Ha-Ha!)
Despite the Obamas not being invited, a number of heads of state are likely attend the ceremony ... including France's president Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni.
