Recent news reports indicate that Great Britain's Prince William does not intend to invite President Barack Obama to his wedding on April 29, 2011. Prince William and Kate Middleton's British royal wedding will not be an official state occasion. Because of this, Prince William is not being expected to invite heads of state to his wedding. Prince William, and his bride-to-be Kate Middleton, plan on inviting people who work for charitable organizations, as well as other members of normal society, to their wedding.
However, a private, undisclosed source revealed to the Daily Mail that some heads of state will be invited to the couple's royal wedding ceremony, but that "Mr. Obama will not be invited." Note that President Obama was referred to as "Mr. Obama" instead of "President Obama." Evidently President Barack Obama (or should I say Mr. Barack Obama?) is not going to be one of the selected heads of state who will have the privilege of attending the British wedding ceremony of a real Prince. Shall I word this lack of invitation another way? Yes, I think so: Mr. Obama has been snubbed by British royalty.
I wonder if former President George W. Bush will be invited to Prince William and Kate Middleton's British wedding ceremony? This would not surprise me, as President George W. Bush, unlike America's current President Barack Obama, had excellent relationships with many European rulers and leaders. Is President Barack Obama popular in Europe? Well, there is at least one real Prince who might think otherwise.
