On Saturday, August 7, Barack Obama celebrated his 60th birthday at a Massachusetts mansion. All American cream appeared at the party. To ensure the privacy of the event, there is even a no-fly zone. However, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were not among the fame.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were not invited to Barack Obama’s birthday
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a long relationship with the former president of the USA. In 2016, Barack starred with Harry and Queen Elizabeth II in a video promoting the Invictus Games Paralympics. The Duke later interviewed Obama on Radio 4. Meghan, in turn, attended Michelle Obama’s speech at London’s Southbank Center in December 2018. Even so, the Sussex were not invited to Barack’s birthday party. Have their relationships cooled down?
Royal expert Phil Dampier said the reason the Sussexs were not invited to the party was rumors that Meghan wanted to run for president of the United States. Dampier revealed that Markle’s presence at the event would allow her to establish significant contacts in the world of politics. On the other hand, royal biographer Duncan Larcombe concluded that Meghan and Harry did not show up at the event because the former presidential couple wanted to remain neutral towards Oprah’s high-profile Sussex interview and thus show respect to Queen Elizabeth II. As reported by “Mirror”, Meghan really wanted to be at the party. The Sun was even tempted to say that Meghan desperately wanted to be the special guest at the ex-president’s birthday party. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the former presidential couple had to reduce the number of visitors. Originally, 475 invitees were supposed to be on the list. However, Meghan and Harry were never present at it.
