Annan woman invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding

The notoriously thin-skinned Mr Trump has so far refused to visit the United Kingdom to accept Prime Minister Theresa May's offer of a state visit because he is concerned about negative publicity and massive protests in London, where he is deeply unpopular.

Nigerian born, Pamela Anomneze, has been listed as one of the "1200 favoured guests" to attend the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle scheduled for May 19.

The decision has avoided the niggling issue of how to manage the guest list if Prince Harry and Ms Markle did want to invite Mr Obama and his wife Michelle.

It is not yet known how many representatives of Europe's other royal families will be invited or how many of Markle's friends and colleagues from Hollywood will make the trek. In December, Prince Harry played it safe when he said he still didn't know if the former president would be invited.

Inviting the Obamas and not the Trumps may rub people the wrong way.

Having a new strong-willed, feminist, social media savvy member of the royal family's "Fab Four" generation is going to challenge the monarchy to up its game, biographer Andrew Morton predicts.

Downing Street is eager to maintain good relations with the White House, with an eye to negotiating a bilateral trade agreement as quickly as possible after Britain leaves the European Union.

Kensington Palace named Anomneze among the guests expected to share the best moments with Harry and Meghan at St George's Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle, venue of the church wedding.

Prince Harry and first lady Michelle Obama embrace during a visit to Fort Belvoir, Va., on October 28, 2015.

He is fifth in line after his father, Prince Charles; his brother, Prince William; and his brother's children.

She previously hit out: "The Markle family is looking forward to our wedding invites".

On Monday, they asked people to donate to charities instead of sending them wedding gifts.

Kensington Palace aides declined to comment on the tweet from Samantha last night.
