Prince Harry is set to marry American actress Meghan Markle next month, and Michelle Obama is reportedly “furious” that she is not invited.
The Daily Star reported that Michelle played a “key role” in setting Meghan and Harry up, and she is devastated that she has been left out of their special day.
“Michelle had a hand in introducing Harry to Meghan, 36,” a source said. “In his mind there wouldn’t be a wedding without her and that is reason enough to invite them. He was not happy such a legitimate reason was ignored.”
The British government had warned Harry not to invite the Obamas, as it was feared that Donald Trump would be livid if they were invited and he was snubbed. Officials were afraid that diplomatic relations between the U.S. and the U.K. would be soured if the Obamas were invited over Trump.
Meghan has made no secret of the fact that she loves the Obamas and does not like Trump.
This comes after a 2016 interview recently surfaced in which Meghan bashed then-presidential candidate Trump. When Meghan 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,” Meghan 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.”
