Royal Wedding Invitation
April 27, 2011 by staff
The news of the decision to exclude them from the ceremony at Westminster Abbey prompted complaints from some Labour MPs that the couple had been unfairly dismissed by the monarchy.
When Prince Charles married Diana Spencer in 1981 at the Cathedral of St. Paul all the surviving former prime ministers were invited.
Sir John Major, Lady Thatcher attends but declined for health reasons. A spokesman for the Royal said the former Conservative MPs had been invited because they were the knights of the league.
Sir John was invited because he became a tutor to Princes William and Harry after the death of Princess Diana in 1997.
“It’s a private wedding and the couple has the right to invite whoever they want,” the spokesman said the Herald.
“Prince William is the Prince of Wales or the king, and he is not related to the premiers in the way the Queen does.”
The 1,900-strong congregation will be honored by the presence of a galaxy of celebrities, sports stars and foreign dignitaries.
But Mr. Blair and Brown, who was No. 10 of 13 of the last 14 years, will not be among them.
“Those who have been prime minister have served this country, and I think the same properties that have been followed in the past should be followed again,” said Labor frontbencher Chris Bryant Mail newspaper.
“I blame Downing Street to avoid staining and saying” we do not like Gordon Brown either, but they really should be there. ” “
