No. William is not king and therefore this is not a state wedding. So much for the official protocol. The Obamas have not behaved with any sense of grace toward Britain and should not be surprised to find they are not on the list of invited guests. If someone made a comment about my deceased mother the way Michelle Obama did about Princess Diana, they sure wouldn't get an invitation to my wedding either. As for politics, I believe the official reason is that it would be too expensive to supply all the security required. Race has nothing to do with it. It's about rudeness - on the Obamas part.
