So while William and Kate were obligated to invite diplomats from across the globe, Harry and Meghan do not need to do so, and won't: "It has been decided that an official list of political leaders-both United Kingdom and international-is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle's wedding".

"It has been decided that an official list of political leaders - both United Kingdom and worldwide - is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle's wedding", said a spokesperson for Kensington Palace, the official residence of William and Harry.

The royal couple will not have to invite both United Kingdom and worldwide political leaders to their wedding on May 19 at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.

The decision was reached after royal officials consulted with the British government to go over protocol and precedent.

The list included people who ran a wide variety of charity organizations as well as veterans from the armed forces who have suffered life-changing injuries.

As the anticipation mounts ahead of Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle next month, it has been revealed that the couple's nuptials are set to be commemorated with a royal fragrance.
