Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting ready to send out 600 invitations to their upcoming wedding in May, but one royal family member will not be receiving one.
The Sun reveals that Prince Harry has not invited Sarah Ferguson, his aunt, to the wedding.
The Duchess of York is reportedly devastated that she won’t get to attend the wedding, which both her ex-husband, Prince Andrew, and daughters Eugenie and Beatrice will be attending. She’ll have to wait until later this year, at Eugenie’s wedding, to be reunited with the royal family.
A royal insider told The Sun that Harry doesn’t trust Fergie to “keep her mouth shut and respect their privacy.”
Fergie has been told to keep a low profile before Eugene’s wedding and not to go on talk shows or give interviews about the royal family. She’s not happy about it.
The source continues, “Eugenie’s wedding is going to be a nightmare because so many of the family can’t stand the Duchess. It’s very uncomfortable. She is still lobbying for an invite but Harry remains adamant he doesn’t want her there.”
Another friend added that Fergie got her hopes up about receiving an invite because both Harry and Meghan are close to Eugenie and Jack.
This isn’t the first time Fergie’s invite got lost in the mail. She was also not invited to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011.
