Prince Harry, Megan Markle Prefer Charity Donations over Wedding Gifts

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle hope to have their own children

Neil Nugent, head chef at Iceland, said: 'We want our customers to enjoy the royal wedding celebrations in style and what better way to do that than raising a glass of champagne to the newlyweds and having a slice of their actual wedding cake - well, kind of.

The Government source noted that the wedding venue, St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, was significantly smaller than Westminster Abbey, where Prince Harry's older brother William Wednesday Kate Middleton in 2011. And to much surprise, former President Barack Obama-who is a friend of Harry's-and his wife, Michelle Obama, were not invited.

A British government source confirmed May would not be attending and said there had been no expectation that she would.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said on Tuesday, April 10, "It has been decided that an official list of political leaders - both United Kingdom and worldwide - is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle's wedding".

The decision was reached after royal officials consulted with the British government to go over protocol and precedent.

Neither Prime Minister Justin Trudeau nor U.S. President Donald Trump was invited to next month's royal wedding.

Of those, 1,200 have been picked out by royal officials from around the country and the remainder will be members of the public, guests from charities associated with the couple.

It is said that the guests are long-standing friends whom Harry and Meghan have known for years.

The former Royal Irish Regiment soldier told The Irish News the invitation was "a wee bit surreal". Reuben was born deaf and has started lunchtime lessons to teach sign language at school.

Then prime minister David Cameron was invited to the 2011 wedding of Harry's brother Prince William, who is second in line to the throne after their father Prince Charles.

Mother and daughter Catherine Cooke and Julie-Ann Coll both received invitations for working with the Foyle Women's Information Network and child bereavement support group Life After Loss.
