Being left off the Royal Wedding guest list is not preventing Donald Trump and Melania from honoring the soon-to-be-betrothed couple with a wedding gift.


His spokesperson confirmed to People that President Trump will donate to a charity near and dear to the Royal couple's heart, but have not indicated the sum to be donated or the chosen charity.

A list of organizations was released on the Royal Family's official website, and some of the causes include the Myna Mahila Foundation, Children's HIV Association, Crisis and Street Games.

“President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will be contributing to one of the seven charities the royal couple has designated in lieu of gifts.”

White House Spokesperson Lindsay Walters, People, May 17, 2018.


The young couple is passionate about women's empowerment, poverty alleviation, the Armed Forces and environmental projects and President Trump will be spoilt for choice when making his donation.

According to People, it is customary for U.S. heads of state to give a bowl as a wedding present to royal couples, and President Trump and the First Lady might still honor that tradition as well.

As reported by ABC7, the Trump family isn't the only ones left off the guest list. Former President Barack Obama didn't receive an invitation either, despite being close friends of Prince Harry's.


Prince Harry and Markle's wedding is not deemed as a state event, unlike Prince Williams and Cathrine's ceremony, who is next in line to the throne after Prince Charles.

For that reason, Prince Harry chose to exclude political leaders from the ceremony. Instead, the service will be broadcast live from St George's Chapel on Saturday morning.

According to the Royal Family's official website, Prince Harry and Markle will 'travel around Windsor in a horse-drawn carriage' before exchanging their vows at midday.
