Who won’t crack an invite to Harry and Meghan’s wedding

Cape Town - With their big day a few short months away, Meghan Markle (36) and Prince Harry (33) will no doubt be busy working on the all-important wedding guest list.

But far more interesting than those who will crack the nod will be those who don’t!

And top of mind are surely Harry’s famous exes – Zimbabwean born Chelsy Davy (32) and English socialite and actress Cressida Bonas (28).

“Both Meghan and Harry will be going through the list carefully. Don’t expect to see Cressida invited – the two didn’t remain friends – but do not be surprised if Chelsy shows up with a date,” a royal source told US Weekly.

“The two have remained friends long after ending their relationship and still keep in touch to this day.

“Chelsy congratulated him the minute the engagement news was announced. Meghan would have no problem with her being there and Chelsy was on the preliminary list of friends to invite.”

The prince dated Chelsy on and off from 2004 to 2012 – with the blonde beauty even joining him at his brother Prince William’s nuptials to Kate Middleton in 2011 – and Cressida from 2012 to 2014, Daily Mail reports.

Both relationships ended amid rumours neither women could stand the public scrutiny that came with dating a royal.

The Obamas too are believed to be off the list. Despite Harry’s bromance with the former US president, royal biographer Duncan Larcombe speculates they won’t get an invite as Meghan and Harry will heed the Foreign Office not to do anything not to upset diplomatic ties with the US.

Reports have suggested the Foreign Office is nervous about upsetting US president Donald Trump, who recently cancelled his first trip to the UK amidst controversy. By tradition, the royal family is supposed to remain neutral and above politics.

“There were religious leaders, members of the royal family, and commonwealth countries that were invited to William’s wedding,” Larcombe told Town and Country. “I suspect that will be the same blueprint that Meghan and Harry will use. It’s all very carefully orchestrated to make sure that there’s no political overtones.'
