The fact that Prince Harry's wife-to-be is American means that their wedding will see some kind of union between the British and the Americans. But according to reports, the British government is a little bit worried about the kind of tension this might lead to.
The Obamas have been known to be chummy with the British royal family but the latter's government is concerned that US President, Donald Trump, will feel offended if he is not invited to Harry and Meghan's wedding and former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle are.
The Sun reported that Harry and Meghan have expressed their intention of inviting the Obamas to their wedding taking place on May 19, 2018. However, the UK government were nervous about it because they felt that Trump would be displeased if the former First Family got an invite while he did not. Trump may take things even more personal because he had not even had a chance to meet Queen Elizabeth yet.
According to a source who spoke to The Sun, Harry made it clear that the Obamas were invited were invited to his special day but "Trump could react very badly if the Obamas get to a Royal wedding before he has had a chance to meet the Queen."

The UK government aides are now trying to discourage Prince Harry from inviting Barack and Michelle Obama so as not to create a rift.
Prince Harry and the Obamas have been quite close for years. The former First Family has been hosted many times by Prince Harry, his brother Prince William and Kate Middleton at the Kensington Palace. In fact, Barack and Michelle even got to meet Prince George.

In addition, Prince Harry and Michelle have worked together on several projects, for example, the 2016 Invictus Games in Orlando. After learning of the Prince's engagement to American actress Meghan Markle, the Obamas shared the sweetest congratulatory Tweet.
We do hope the British presidential aides come up with some form of compromise that will allow the Obamas attend the upcoming royal wedding.
