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.
