Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were told by the British government not to invite Barack and Michelle Obama to their wedding out of fears President Donald Trump would be offended by the snub. Now, however, reports are coming in that Harry and Markle have decided to ignore this advice and invite the Obamas anyway.
The Daily Star reported that insiders say that the couple has indeed invited the Obamas to their wedding. A royal source said that Harry and Markle “want to do things their own way,” despite aides advising them to hold back on the invite. There are fears that this move will outrage Trump, who has reportedly not been invited, and rock diplomatic ties with his country.
“The invitations are going out now, but Mr and Mrs Obama still have to respond,” a royal source said. “I am very, very sure they will attend though. Harry and Meghan want to do things their own way. They are inviting their own friends, and not on the advice of aides.”
Markle has previously been open about her dislike for Trump. A 2016 interview just surfaced in which Markle bashed then-presidential candidate Trump. When Markle was asked how then-presidential candidate Trump’s momentum could be slowed down, she held nothing back with her response.
“It’s really the moment that I go, we film Suits in Toronto and I might just stay in Canada,” Markle replied. “I mean come on, if that’s reality we are talking about, come on, that is a game changer in terms of how we move in the world here.”
“Yes of course Trump is divisive. Think about just female voters alone,” she continued. “I think it was in 2012, the Republican Party lost the female vote by 12 points. That’s a huge number and with as misogynistic as Trump is and so vocal about it, that’s a huge chunk of it. You’re not just voting for a woman if it’s Hillary because she’s a woman, but certainly because Trump has made it easy to see that you don’t really want that kind of world that he’s painting.”
