Royalty congratulating royalty (sort of)! Michelle Obama took to Instagram on Monday, April 23 to congratulate Kate Middleton and Prince William on welcoming their third royal baby — and her message was both sweet and funny.
“Barack and I are thrilled to congratulate The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their newest arrival! We hope to meet him soon for a Kensington Palace pajama party. I’ll wear my robe!” she wrote alongside the iconic photo from when she and Barack Obama met the couple’s oldest son, Prince George, 4, back in April 2017.
We’re sure Kate and Will greatly appreciated Michelle’s shout-out, but do you think that will help them justify to Prince Harry to invite the former US President and First Lady to his upcoming wedding? It was previously reported that the two aren’t on Harry and Meghan Markle‘s guest list.
“It has been decided that an official list of political leaders — both UK and international — is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle’s wedding,” a Kensington Palace spokesperson said. “Her Majesty’s Government was consulted on this decision, which was taken by The Royal Household.”
However, it’s causing controversy because Harry really wants them at his nuptials. “Harry has made it clear he wants the Obamas at the wedding, so it’s causing a lot of nervousness,” a senior government source told The Sun last year. “[Donald] Trump could react very badly if the Obamas get to a royal wedding before he has had a chance to meet the Queen. Conversations are ongoing about and ministers will eventually have to decide. If the PM lays down the law, Harry will just have to suck it up.”
We’re sure if they don’t attend the wedding they’ll get together with the royal family to meet their new bundle of joy another time — perhaps we could also score an invite to the gathering?
