Contacted by AFP, a spokesman for Kensington Palace, the prince´s official residence, said: “It has been decided that an official list of political leaders — both UK and international — is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle´s wedding”.

Then prime minister David Cameron was invited to the 2011 wedding of Harry´s brother Prince William, who is second in line to the throne after their father Prince Charles.

Harry´s place in the line of succession makes this wedding less politically significant and the couple have instead invited youth workers and military veterans to attend.

Harry is fifth in line to the throne and will soon find himself in sixth place after William´s wife Kate gives birth as expected later this month.
