Neither Former President Barack Obama nor his wife Michelle are invited to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding.

While Prince Harry, who is obliged as a royal to be politically neutral, has never spoken publicly about Trump, Markle strongly criticized the now president in 2016.

As the anticipation mounts ahead of Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle next month, it has been revealed that the couple's nuptials are set to be commemorated with a royal fragrance.

The Trudeaus are close personal friends of Meghan, and are invited for their personal relationship to the Suits actress, not for political reasons. And British Prime Minister Theresa May.

The are around 600 people invited to the May 19 ceremony at Windsor Castle's St. George's Chapel and the decision to not invite world leaders was reached after royal officials consulted with the British government to go over protocol and precedent.

A White House official confirmed neither Trump nor first lady Melania were invited; nor was Prime Minister May, Downing Street said.

Sharing the image on Twitter, Darren McGrady, a former Royal chef who's cooked for Princes William and Harry, their late mom Princess Diana and their grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, wrote, "Loving all the #PrinceHarry and #MeghanMarkle memorabilia".

"Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have said they wanted their wedding day to be shaped to allow members of the public to feel part of the celebrations", Kensington Palace said in a news release.

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 previous year.

Others will include members of the couple's charities, local schoolkids and members of the Royal Household and Crown Estate.

Kensington Palace on Tuesday named some of the 1,200 people, chosen due to their strong leadership and community service, who have been invited into the grounds of Windsor Castle on the wedding day to join the celebrations.

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