President Donald Trump wouldn't be invited to the wedding as a source close to the royal couple told Mail Online,

President Trump will not be invited because the wedding will be for friends and family only.

The source added,

It won't be a state occasion. If Mr. Obama was invited, the invitation could look like a snub to Mr. Trump, and His Royal Highness would not wish to cause a diplomatic row.

Donald Trump has yet to visit the United Kingdom as a US President officially. Meanwhile, Trump reportedly canceled a proposed visit to London next month to inaugurate the new  £750 million U.S. embassy.
