President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle have not been invited to Prince William and Kate Middletons wedding.
The Queen personally invited 40 heads of state, who received the gold-embossed invitations over the weekend to the April 29 wedding of the future king.
The Obamas, however, were not among them.
But they can take solace in the knowledge that they will be the guests of their very own state visit to the UK in May.
There have been suggestions that the state visit the first for a US President since 2003 was set up in return for Obama not coming to the wedding because of the added security costs involved with protecting the President.
French Prime Minister Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni will also miss out and Prince Andrews former wife, Sarah Ferguson the Duchess of York has also been snubbed.
Leaders from Commonwealth counties, including Australia, Canada and New Zealand have been invited along with Kings and Queens across Europe, including Spain, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Greece.

Actually, we would invite the Wee Wee and the Wookie in an instant ... if we were sure they wouldn't attend
the only thing that could improve on this is if they invite GWB and Laura.
please God let it be so.
...is just fine and dandy.
good for them.
I think I would have shut the Embassy to the US down afer the nuke secrets thing.
The Obama’s probably expect that they wouldn’t need an invitation!
I was just thinking the same thing..... That would be great..
Dissed by the Queen...
You go girl...
Me British Mum would be proud...
(And slap me for saying “me”)
The Obamas are “poopers”. This proves that not EVERY party has one.
please God let it be so.
Yes, them and the Cheeneys , what a royal slap in the usurper's and the wookie's face.
What did the queen know and when did she know it?
And how much did the royal family make off the deal?
Are they paying for this wedding with blood money?
zero holds zero respect in the international setting. we have cut our own wings and lost all credibility in the planet. no saving face here. this nation put an inexperienced pawn in the office of president.
Oh, the WH menagerie will probably crash the party. That would be par for the course.
The Royal House of England has spurned POTUS Obama and his anti-American wife, Michelle!!! Why? Obama hates America!!! Obama hates Jews and the Jewish state of Israel!!! Obama hates England because his drunken, drug laden, womanizer father, radical communist that he was, hated England because England brought civilization and effective administration to Kenya. England certainly has faults and so does the USA, but the English brought law, order and reason to Kenya, laying the ground for the independence that was to come. I am glad the Queen culled out the Obamas for what they really are, haters!!!
It’s because of the price of security not a snub, hello....
Who’d want to harm Obama? Everybody loves him.
Like Obama doesn’t provide his own security?
Come on. They probably didn’t want 1,000 Secret service agents roaming around the party .
Come on. They probably didnt want 1,000 Secret service agents roaming around the party .
As close as Fergie and Diana were, this seems... I don’t know... William has had his mother washed from importance it seems.
Perfect pic for the topic. Great stuff!
Good post — right on the money.
Good for the Queen!
The young groom and bride probably already have a DVD of Obama’s speeches already and the white house gift shop is out of inventory.
On decorum, did Obama even get a thank you note for returning the bust of Winston Churchill?
It is rumoured that the Queen still has bruising from being felt up by Michelle during the last encounter. ;-)
The cool thing is most of us feel proud of the Queen - how she has, with grace - snubbed the Obamas’ for their cheap gifts and general rudeness. She has standards - that’s a good thing.
Gee do you think she may have thought it a bit tacky to get an iPod with hs speeches loaded nto it? Or perhaps hving Moochelle slap her on the back when one is not supposed to touch the Queen?I’m glad they are not going I can only imagine the get up Moochelle would pick for this event.
It’s a snub - you live under a rock or what?
You’re right, it’s not a snub. It’s a favor.
Queen Elizabeth was doing Obama and Michelle a favor. It would take months of etiquette instruction to ensure that the Obamas would act appropriately and not embarrass themselves.
Imagine if Michelle, once again, put her arm around the queen and slapped her on her back.
I would not want those two grifters within 10 miles of me.
It is no rumor...Queen Elizabeth told her staff to NEVER allow that woman [moochelle] in the same room with her again.
“Like Obama doesnt provide his own security?”
Yeah, remember his trip to India and all that was involved in getting him there and back?
Maybe they could send a gift...some dvd’s or an ipod or somthing.
From our country to yours, compadres!
