Former U.S. President Barack Obama extended his family's congratulatory message to the newly engaged royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Twitter on November 28. Meanwhile, his Republican successor has remained silent on the royal announcement, leaving the rest of the world asking if he's jealous of the highly anticipated wedding invitation the Obamas received.
Barack congratulated the couple, saying, "Michelle and I are delighted to congratulate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their engagement."
He also wished them a lifetime of joy and happiness together. Other world leaders like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have also joined in the celebratory mood by sending their warm messages.
After Barack's message, political observers and social butterflies turned their eyes to Trump, fervently waiting for a possible tweet while also congratulating the newly engaged member of the royal family and his American fiance in their historic announcement but to no avail. His tweets yesterday centered on tax reforms and retweets of FLOTUS Melania and daughter Ivanka.
According to the Evening Standard, Trump will most likely get snubbed by the Buckingham Palace due to several controversial issues he's been involved with before and during his time as the president of the United State.
One, in particular, involves Princess Diana, the late mother of Prince Charles. The conflict began in 1997 in an interview with long-time pal Howard Stern where Trump bragged about having slept with Di on one occasion. Incidentally, shortly after that interview, the former Princess of Wales died in a car fatal accident in Paris. In addition, more untold commentaries on Diana made by Trump have resurfaced.
Thus, there could have always been a bad blood between the American president and the heirs to the British throne. Bottomline, Prince Harry will likely block an invitation to the White House to avoid Trump's participation in his own wedding with respect to the memory of his late mother.
On the other hand, Meghan Markle may have her own reasons to not invite Donald Trump. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Merkle said in an interview that she would rather stay in Canada, if ever, Trump wins the election. She was a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter and even called him "divisive" and "misogynistic."
Lastly, Trump's arrival in London could trigger a massive protest from the English people who have vocally opposed his planned state visit. Note that when Theresa May suggested that visit, more than 2 million voters took the ballots to express their dismay of the proposal and would gather to the streets to protest against him.
