Donald Trump may not be going to the royal wedding after all. According to Trump, he hasn’t received an invitation to the May nuptials for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. (Maybe it got lost in the mail?) In an interview with Piers Morgan for ITV, Trump said that he has not been invited, at least, “not that [he] know[s] of.”
When asked if he would want to go, he replied, “I want them to be happy. I really want them to be happy. They look like a lovely couple.”
In December, The Sun reported that Prince Harry’s friendship with Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, could cause issues for the wedding’s guest list. The British government was reportedly worried an invitation to the Obama family would offend Trump, which could cause issues for any potential Brexit deal between the United States and Britain.
Markle has also been a somewhat vocal critic of Trump in the past, calling him “divisive” during an interview on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore in May 2016.
“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,” she said. “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.”
