* American President left off the guest list as it is not a 'state occasion' * Royal couple eager to ask ordinary citizens to attend rather than VIPs * Heads of State who may attend include Nicolas Sarkozy and wife Carla Bruni
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.
But the decision to exclude the U.S. President and his wife Michelle from the celebrations is a break from tradition. Prince William and Kate Middleton will marry at Westminster Abbey on April 29 The world famous Westminster Abbey will host the ceremony
Prince Charles and Princess Diana invited then President Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy to their 1981 ceremony though she came alone because the President was too ill to travel following an assassination attempt on him. Mrs Reagan also attended

Oh, I wouldn’t be surprised if they tried crashing the party anyway. Probably bringing the teleprompter with them...
and he probably relishes in it, even though it endangers secret service agents and bystanders
The Obamas treatment of the Brits:
1. Sent back the Churchill bust that was a gift.
2. Gave as a gift, a wrong format DVD player.
3. Ipod with the mulatto’s ‘best’ primary speeches.
4. Backbiting and snubs by the ton.
What a classless bunch of Africans.
Long live King William!
Thanks to the “royal” couple for saving the US taxpayers untold millions of dollars “protecting” the pretenders.
I wish the Palins would get an invite. That would be icing on the wedding cake.
Uh...yeah! That's the ticket!
It is inappropriate to upstage the bride on her day. Michelle, Barak and their entourage would be disruptive and make a difficult logistics problem horrible in the extreme. The Obamas would take themselves to center stage. Imagine 200 secret service, fighter jets overhead and snipers visible on every building top. And, let’s not mention the Army Corp of Engineer’s constructed bullet-proof gazebo that’s bigger and more grand than the one seating the royal couple.
Were President Bush in office and invited, I’m certain he’d show up with probably no more than eight secret service agents and those agents would make themselves invisible. He’d probably sit at the head table but several removes from the couple. The Obama’s enjoy the chaos their self-importance creates and they’d demand to be right up front.
Good call, Royals.
True, but they will waste it somewhere else. Gosh, I can’t wait for these people to leave the White House. God help us.
The delegates gathered in the formal dining room at 10 Downing Street, the prime ministers residence, for a working dinner. 2009.
Notice most all dignified delegates don’t sit with elbows on the table. http://www.spiegel.de/fotostrecke/fotostrecke-41181-6.html and here the close-up. http://www.spiegel.de/fotostrecke/fotostrecke-41181-7.html
Don't forget all the pics of Obozo sitting with his feet up on the Resolute Desk. I doubt he is even aware of the history, which is a pretty cool story IMO.
Mr Obama said: I had breakfast with the Prime Minister, meetings with the Chinese, the Russians, David Cameron...
Prince Philip replied: Can you tell the difference between them?”
This pic shows not only disrespect for history and our relationship with GB, but also toward the gentlemen present in this meeting. Obama is an arrogant fool.
Interesting. Maybe Prince William has far more guts than Charles ever did.
Or could it be the Royals realize that the 0bama’s may have vacated the White House by then?
I’m sure they’ll send a thoughtful wedding gift anyway. Maybe an iPod with the collected speechs of Nancy Pelosi.
Dress? what about the hat? It’s a Brit thing you know
Moochele would have to wear a hat and my goodness, what Wookie tribal fetishes would she conjure up?
Then there is the fact if she wore a hat, would she be pandering to the NAALCP hat ladies and incur the wrath of the hatless Eleanor Norton Lice Cut hair girls?
My guess is that not having to face those problems means the Wookie breathed a sigh of relief.
