Who made the guest list?

Despite former USA president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama's close friendship with Prince Harry over the years, it looks like the couple will not be attending his upcoming wedding to Meghan Markle in May.

The 1200 members of the public were selected by nine regional Lord Lieutenant offices.

The list included people from charity organisations as well as veterans from the armed forces who have suffered serious injuries in combat.

Twelve-year-old Amelia Thompson who was caught up in last year's Manchester Arena terror attack in which 23 people were killed and hundreds more injured, is also on the list.

Invited as a partner of The Diana Award, which encourages positive change through a series of programs including one focused on mentorship, TAPS will be represented at the May 19 wedding at Windsor Castle by Diana Hosford, TAPS vice president for sports and entertainment.

Philip Gillespie, former soldier who lost his leg in an IED incident in Afghanistan who works to raise funds and awareness for soldiers.

Another is Rosie Ginday, 34, the founder of "Miss Macaroon", a charity that provides culinary training and employment opportunities for disadvantaged young people in Birmingham.

Some celebrities who have allegedly been invited include the Spice Girls, Elton John and Ed Sheeran.

Invitations to the royal wedding were dispatched in March.

Apart from majority of citizens, some well-known names were expected to be invited to the wedding but are not.

Harry and Markle have selected seven charities, none of which they have direct links to, which they want people to support.

On Tuesday, Kensington Palace said in a statement 1200 members of the public from around the United Kingdom who have shown strong leadership, and those who have served their communities, had been invited to the grounds of Windsor Castle on the day to watch the celebrations. "She will send personal congratulations and wishes to the new couple on the occasion of their wedding", the statement said.
