Prince Harry and Meghan Markle hope to have their own children

Kensington Palace on Tuesday named some of the 1,200 people, chosen due to their strong leadership and community service, who have been invited into the grounds of Windsor Castle on the wedding day to join the celebrations.

We know now that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry won't be going for a traditional fruitcake at their wedding. The Telegraph newspaper and other British national media said US President Donald Trump and his predecessor Barack Obama had not been invited. "Her Majesty's Government was consulted on this decision, which was taken by the royal household".

Invitations to the royal wedding were dispatched in March.

A Kensington Palace spokesman told ET in a statement on Tuesday that Prince Harry and Meghan will not be inviting political leaders to their wedding. The list includes charity workers, school teachers, organisations closely associated with the couple and community members in the Windsor Castle area.

The BBC reported 12-year-old Amelia Thompson, who was injured during an attack at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, was among those who received an invitation.

Reuben Litherland, a 14-year-old schoolboy, has been invited for teaching his classmates sign language after he was born deaf.

Rochelle said she would not return to the Montgomery County Courthouse for any form of protest following Monday's demonstration. O'Neill ruled leading up to trial that some evidence regarding the civil suit and confidential settlement would be admissible.

The couple have invited 2,640 members to the castle, including 1,200 members of the general public from every region in the kingdom, who will be selected by nine of the Queen's personal representatives in different counties.

Ex-Royal Irish Regiment soldier Philip Gillespie (pictured below), who lost his right leg during a tour of Afghanistan in 2011, said it felt a "wee bit surreal" to receive an invite in the post.

Also, British Prime Minister Theresa May will not turn up at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

"They will watch the arrivals of the Bride and Groom and their wedding guests at the Chapel and will see the Carriage Procession as it departs from the Castle".

Six hundred guests have been invited to the royal wedding next month, all of whom have also been invited to a lunchtime reception after the ceremony.
