    Snub for Obamas as Royal sources reveal they will not be invited to Prince William's wedding

    By Fay Schlesinger

    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.

    Because Prince William is not yet heir to the throne, his wedding to Kate Middleton is not classed as a ‘state occasion’ – and the couple feel under no pressure to fill the 2,000-strong guest list with heads of state, the Mail understands.

    ************************************************
    Maybe the Queen will send the Obamas an I-Pod with a video of the wedding as a consolation gift. Or, maybe the PM can have the video transferred to DVD and encode it for the proper region. :D

    I know somebody who won't be getting any DVD's or speeches for a wedding present!

    Really, after those hokie gifts of an Ipod full of his campaign
    speeches and a DVD player that couldn't even be plugged into
    a UK outlet, who'd want to risk what kind of wedding gift he
    might bring.

    It would be just hilarious if they would invite W and Laura.
    They seemed to genuinely hit it off with the Royals when
    they went over for a visit. That would just be classic. :D

    The Obamas do lack a certain class. But, the real issue is that Obama's entourage would end up taking every available hotel room in London, and the royals aren't about to give up their bridal suite. That, and I suspect that her majesty doesn't want another hug from the first Klingon.

    That would be the ultimate one-fingered salute. And, I know that Bill and Hillary won't be invited, because Hillary would try too hard to catch the bouquet, and Bill can't be trusted around the bridesmaids. :D

    O Blah Blah would try to hold court while Michelle would criticize the food (while binging on the same).

    Maybe they know that Zero will turn their wedding into something about him. He does have that proclivity you know

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.
