“Her Majesty’s Government was consulted on this decision, which was taken by The Royal Household.”
The Government source said Theresa May wasn’t expecting an invitation.
The source added the couple’s wedding venue is smaller than Westminster Abbey, where William and Kate got married, in the presence of various heads of state including then Prime Minister David Cameron.
President Obama & his wife, Michelle, will NOT be guests at Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s wedding next month – and nor will Donald Trump.
The couple have decided not to invite any political leaders both from the UK & abroad, which means that even Br PM Theresa May is uninvited.

It is understood that Donald Trump is also absent from the couple’s guest list, along with former president Barack Obama and his wife Michelle.
Instead, the couple has chosen 600 guests they have a direct relationship with to witness their marriage on 19 May at Windsor Castle’s St George’s Chapel.
The palace earlier named some of the members of the public chosen to join the crowds in the grounds of Windsor Castle on the big day.
