In an event reminiscent of Charlie and The Chocolate Factory the British Royal Family have sent out the 1900 invites to the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.  Apparently not on the list are Barack and Michelle Obama.  Who got the nod instead of the Obamas?

Royal officials have confirmed that 1,000 guests are friends and family, 50 will be members of Britain’s royal family, and 40 will be foreign royalty.

There will be 200 guests from the British government, parliament and diplomatic service, 80 guests from charities William is involved in, 30 people from the armed forces, and 60 senior government figures from Commonwealth countries.

It would be ok to think of being replaced by 1900 close friends of the royal family but reports indicate that the Queen personally invited 40 heads of state from around the world.  Let’s take a moment to list 40 countries might have made the list ahead of the Obamas.  I’ll give you some commonwealth freebies: Australia, New Zealand, Canada…

Taking a moment to think of more…

Another moment thinking…

Right about the time I got to “well, Pakistan was a British colony so I suppose…”  I realized I was still about 20 countries short and just started shaking my head.

On the positive side the Brits confirmed they will not negotiate with terrorists by sending only regrets to the teenage lunatic who has been on a nine-day hunger strike at the British Embassy in Mexico City looking for an invite.

Oh, and I can’t blame them for inviting the king of Saudi Arabia, you know he’s good for an expensive gift.

    And why exactly should the Queen have invited the Obamas? The heads of state that were invited wer from comonwealth countries. And you seriously could name only three?! Try google, amaing source of information! Well, allow me to give you a bit of an education here, she is Queen of; The United Kingdom of Great Britain (England, Scotland, Wales, N Ireland), Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Jamaica, Barbados, the Bahamas, Grenada, Papau New Giunea, the Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, St. Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Antiga and the Barbuda, Belize and St. Kitts and Nevis. Just in case anyone calles her ”the Queen of England” that title has not existed since 1707. Lesson over.
    Another thing, last time i looked, USA was not part of the commonwealth, and Obama is anti-British and considers France as the USA’s biggest allies, why would he be invited? And no offence, but considering that all i hear from American’s is ”i’m glad i don’t have to pay for your Royals…” All of a sudden, any big even to do with our Royals, Americans are all over it. Then get angry and jealous when they’re not involved! Seriously, get over it.
