Royal Wedding in UK: Obama not Invited, Kayne West is on the List

Prince William and Kate, possibly a future King and Queen off to an odd start

LONDON (Hollywood Today) 2/22/11 – President Barack Obama and wife Michelle were not among those to get a gold-edged invitation to the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton. British officials said the attendance of a U.S. president would require so much additional security, they could not handle it at the event of the decade for the Britons.  Is this a snub or legit concern?  Readers have been split. Funny, as rapper Kanye West was invited – and he travels with as large an entourage as any president. Also invited was Paul McCartney, but after all he is Sir Paul and performing at the wedding on April 29. 40 heads of state did make the list, yet  also snubbed was French Prime Minister Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni.  Can someone please call the late 1700s and say the War of Independence has ended and the Americans and French are now their allies.

    Nicolas Sarkozy is not the prime minister of France, it’s the president…

    That mere peasant Kate knows if First Lady Michelle Obama or Carla Bruni comes they will still her spotlight.

    Mere peasant???? STILL her spotlight? Don’t you mean STEAL. And I think that you should not be forced to invite people you don’t want at your wedding. Royalty or not. Besides the president has issues to handle here in the US instead of focusing on attending the royal wedding.

    Hey, Renee, Kate is no mere peasant… didn’t you read about her royal (if a bit distant) blood? She is 12 cousin with the prince.

  • 10 Steve // Feb 24, 2011 at 7:29 am

    If Michelle had kept her fat pork-butt arms off the Queen Mother, maybe they would have been invited to this wedding. What a bunch of yokels are the Obamas! Even we Rednecks here in the South know to keep our hands off of Royalty. Hell, I can’t even touch my Dog, Prince. He’ll bite he hell out of you! And now Prince Billy is biting the hand of Michelle and O!Bama.

  • 11 Bev // Feb 24, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    I don’t blame them, they are an embarrassment to REAL AMERICANS also, I wouldn’t even want them at my humble wedding either.

  • 12 Princess Plutogirl // Feb 24, 2011 at 11:24 pm

    As an American, I am proud that the Obamas won’t be there. We fought a war back in 1776 to get rid of this royal nonsense. And to add insult to injury, the so-called royal family own huge amounts of stock in BP. They should be paying us for the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. All those Arab kings and sheiks–isn’t the theme obvious. OIL. This family continues to poison our planet with their fossil fuels and then expects everyone to fawn all over them. JUST SAY NO!!!

  • 13 bob // Feb 25, 2011 at 2:46 am

    BEV you would not know a real American if they walked up behind you and kicked you in the butt.

    Perhaps it’s the arogance of the Obama’s. I would not want them around me.

  • 16 SJ // Feb 25, 2011 at 11:52 pm

    Is it because they’re black???

  • 17 why do royals even exist any more? // Feb 26, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    Why are these people relevant? Why aren’t they off power? They don’t have any function, they don’t have any job, they don’t DO anything! I don’t get it. Money wasted. People complain about Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian not deserving the money they have…these “royals” are in the same league.

    -
    In what world would that happen? She’d shine next to both those women. And peasant? Really? It’s the 21st century, get with the times.

  • 19 tatydial // Feb 27, 2011 at 5:59 pm

    obviously, racial issue here. im sorry like if it was a freaking white republican, he would be invited.

  • 20 DAVE // Feb 27, 2011 at 11:25 pm

    IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SECURITY!
    When Charles married Diana as Crown Prince protocol demands that the Presidents of USA a nd France etc are invited…and were.
    William is the son of the Crown Prince and thus this is a leser Royal wedding although William will be King so current presidents aren’t invited. You will generally find that the Leaders of countries invited are either family…eg Royals..Sweden, Norway, etc or part of the Commonwealth

    Both William and Kate exhibit the royal snobbery for which royalty, especially this queen, is famous. In their decision to not invite the President of the United States, they exhibit naivety as well as arrogance. Of course it’s racial and a reaction to Mrs. Obama’s faux pas when she touched the queen without the Divine Right to do so,earlier last year. Henry VIII would be appalled had someone done that when he was ruling in the 1500′s. How shocking! How unforgiveable! I hope the queen decontaminated herself later. The invitation? I’m sure the Obamas would care, if this were a genuinely important event. However, the Windsors, aided by the press and the papparazi, (whom Dianna appeared to detest with good reason) have a case of delusional grandeur. This is 2011, not 1540, when Henry VIII had power and could lop off heads. What of lasting importance do these royals DO? And why should their marriage take on the inflated grandiosity it has, today? And why should the Obamas care? As someone else pointed out, the royal family is famous not because of any great deeds they have accomplished.We all recall that Princess Diana accomplished much, but we know what happened to her. As for the Obamas, I’m sure they will withstand the “pain” of not attending this “earth-shattering” event, manage somehow to survive, enjoy life and continue to engage in meaningful activities , without attending this affair, which is already dripping with inflated self-importance.

    What a bunch of low life losers posting on here. Like the Royals give a rat’s arse about what idjots like you think. Laughing at the stupidity of white trash America – again.

  • 23 Jawhar // Mar 4, 2011 at 7:28 am

    Obviously, it is a racial issue. The Royals are eager to maintain the purity of the blood. Who said blacks have been emancipated? They are still the poorest in the richest and the most democratic nation on earth?

  • 24 scott // Mar 5, 2011 at 7:45 am

    Obamas dont have any etiquette when it comes to non-American traditions/cultures. “MO” has done soo many things wrong she is basic not welcome in several countries now. All for not following their customs/culture. “BO” isnt much better.

  • 25 scott // Mar 5, 2011 at 7:48 am

    in America, the haves vs have-nots does not lie on racial boundaries but on whom goes out there are achieves vs those that rather sit on their backsides waiting for a free handout. There is plenty of every ethic/racial backgrounds on both sides of that table.

  • 26 jessica // Mar 6, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    what day and age now? William and Kate are just humans, no big deal. Obama has better things to do.

  • 27 Louise Blessitt // Mar 7, 2011 at 2:00 am

    what difference does it make whether they are invited or not.Who cares?Who the heck is this family anyway?from the dark ages if u ask me.Liveing in that spacious Castle,money comeing out their ears and they have as many poor people there as there is everywhere else in the world,and hungry children.Bet the Obama’s aren’t grieveing about not being invited.

  • 28 Will // Mar 9, 2011 at 5:01 am

    The US would normally be a strong allie to the UK, unfortunately, with the US President being a Muslim and trying to destroy the US and its allie’s, it is best that the US not be invited to the big event. As for the war being over in the 1700′s, the French continue to do things their way, and I don’t blame the UK for not inviting them either. French are french but they do take a stronger stand the Obama when it comes to the muslims in their country.

  • 29 wendy // Mar 11, 2011 at 4:57 pm

    As a brit living in America i see both sides but it has nothing to do with religeon or race its just Obama made a very bad first impression on his first visit to the UK but im sure he wont loose any sleep over not being invited but on the other hand his wife might lol

  • 30 Candace // Mar 13, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    Maybe he can listen to a podcast of it. On one of the lame iPods he gave the Queen. He is am idiot and I believe insulted them

  • 31 celtcalgal // Mar 26, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    thr reason the obama’s were not invited to the royal wedding was simply a lack of class in a classy situation, the queen has many many people of color in her commonwealth.

  • 32 John Jacob // Apr 18, 2011 at 8:06 am

    The insult of sending back the bust of Churchill probably had a bit to do with it.

    Incredibly ignorant to accuse them of racism, n nodick. Anything and everything that isn’t groveling is reduced to race by you and your ilk. There’s plenty of us that don’t like him simply because of his incompetence, and polices that are not good for America, in our opinion.

  • 33 Dave // Apr 20, 2011 at 10:57 am

    If not for us, this british wankers will be speaking german now. They should shove their invite up you know where. Ungrateful stuck-ups. We should require they get a visa before coming into the US.

  • 34 kody // Apr 23, 2011 at 9:48 am

    if all else fails scream racism haha

  • 35 TRUTH // Apr 25, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    WOW thats all you races fools can come up with. lol get over it already its getting tired now with all the black this black that. we dont care about what comes out of your mouth anymore, its a joke now. Thats just a racist person way to feel better about themselves so you have to attack someone else. the obamas are beautiful and one wedding dont mean jack. they’re not even worrying about attending. oh and by the way we all have to go 6 feet under one day so you should worry about if you will meeting the true king. Which I doubt.

  • 36 asdfuck // Apr 26, 2011 at 12:27 am

    this shouldnt be a big of an issue,the obama’s are the biggest and most famous family in the US…they dont give a fuck bout some kids getting married..they obama’s worked for their fortune…and they deserve great respect..millions of white people will never get even closer to their acheivement..so get it right and this is america ..the greatest nation in the universe…they obama earned their place..anyone in the royal family happens to be their by chance..is not like they worked for,they just happened to be their..faggorts

  • 37 Alice // Apr 26, 2011 at 12:59 pm

    I feel this is just another instance of racism in the world. Queen Elizabeth should have intervened out of respect for this country and hers. Her opinion would have overrode that of Wm. and whoever her name is. This proves that she is a big racist; but we already know this due to the length of time apartheid existed under British rule.

  • 38 Teresa // Apr 26, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    Alice, you are so right! The Queen should have insisted they send an invitation. I’m sure this wedding will end up just as Lady Di’s and Fergie did – in divorce.. Should not be marrying cousins 1st or 20th removed, children will be inbreds.. Long live our President.

  • 39 daely // Apr 27, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    The Queen should have…!!! Are you serious????? My Gog !! Oh no,please neither the Obama’s nor the Americans at the wedding. You don’t have manners. Maybe you have ‘power’ as some here say but, money don’t buy everything in life. Think about it!!!! When are you going to undertand it???

  • 40 Marrabella // Apr 28, 2011 at 10:32 am

    Didn’t Obama call Kanye West a jackass?
    Karma’s a bitc……

  • 41 cj // Apr 29, 2011 at 9:42 am

    omission of the Obama’s is a racial slight–even obscure heads of state and other dignitaries were invited. It was simply rude

  • 42 Mary // Apr 29, 2011 at 1:04 pm

    Good for them that they recognize that Barry doesn’t belong in office or represent our great country. Why bother to waste the paper to send these usurpers of the Presidency.

  • 43 Mary // Apr 29, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    btw, if you want proof that most can’t stand Barry for his politics and charactor and not his skin, how can you call his not being invited ‘racial’ when you see all the other black head of state at the wedding. Give it up. Barry’s black excuse has sailed. He’s just a Socialist liar and that’s why he’s is so disliked in this country and abroad.

  • 44 B // Apr 29, 2011 at 2:38 pm

    Thank god!! I guess they figured they had heard enough of his bull on tv!!!

    WOW

  • 46 Jackson // Apr 29, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    I’s amazing how some people can think that the royal family are better than we “common”folks like the Obamas who really should be considered as royalty because of their accomplishments not NAME but it goes to show even in 2011 to some snobish racist pricks blacks are still nobody, eben if you are president!!

  • 47 Jackson // Apr 29, 2011 at 6:46 pm

  • 48 Jackson // Apr 29, 2011 at 6:51 pm

    Mary how can you call him a socialist liar ?? What the hell was President Regan?? He was still invited to the previous royal wedding so stop talking about Barry when they all were liars especially BUSH !!!!!!

  • 49 jeri // Apr 29, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    The first lady bear hugged the Queen,zero class. Obama bowed to a Saudi Royal,and the Emperor of Japan. He should be impeached!!! We have lost a great alley because Obama works for Muslims. He trashed BP becasue they are not owned by the Arabes.

  • 50 No_Racist // May 16, 2011 at 8:25 am

    All those who criticize Obama, are for sure, Snobbish republicans, who think class is in the color of the skin. If it were the retarded Bush not invited, they would be resentful and complaining. Why don’t you shut up. Bush left the country in ruins. You have not right to say a word.

    And who is the royal family to deserve so much importance? They are leeches living from peoples money. They are doing nothing for the planet, but take advantage of every body they can.

    At present, there should not exist Kings or Queens. We people shall finish with that snobbery and bawdry.

    Hope one day, they are given a coup d’état) by their own people by taking over the palace, and finish them once and for all. And to give all their assets to poor people.
