Not necessarily, they may have other commitments. For example, Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima have to be back in the Netherlands on April 30 for Queen's Day. So they can't stay for too long.

Okay, thank you. I guess it makes sense then. I am still hoping we get to see at least a glimpse of all the tiaras...

Additionally, the entire Obama family is planning to attend the space shuttle launch in Florida scheduled for Friday afternoon. President Obama will give a commencement address at a Florida college in the evening. I don't think they're going to be upset about not getting a wedding invitation. While the launch was only re-scheduled a few weeks ago for April 29, I think the president was scheduled to give that commencement speech for quite a while.

There isn't going to be any tiaras. The dinner the PoW is hosting that evening as the smallest of the functions going on that day, is for close friends and family only, and no foreign royals. Besides, the only person wearing a tiara that day will be Catherine -- dress code for the wedding dictates hats for ladies.

Duchess of Kent comes out from the shadows to attend royal wedding | Mail Online

The reclusive Duchess of Kent will break a long self-imposed exile from public life to attend the royal wedding.

The 78-year-old, who prefers to be known simply by her first name, Katharine, will appear at the ceremony on the arm of her husband the duke, who is the Queen’s cousin.

Thank you for clarifying that. I was under the impression that the evening reception was where they might be wearing tiaras but I stand corrected. Too bad, hat weddings are sort of boring... I've been spoiled rotten by all the glittering tiara weddings there has been lately around Scandinavia... I do hope at least Catherine will be wearing one!

Syrian ambassador uninvited to wedding | Herald Sun

"In the light of this week's attacks against civilians by the Syrian security forces, which we have condemned, the foreign secretary has decided that the presence of the Syrian ambassador at the royal wedding would be unacceptable and that he should not attend," a Foreign Office spokesperson said.

Can someone explain to me why the Queen of Denmark is invited and why the Prince Consort is not? Also why Mary and Frederick are not included and why Letizia and Felipe are and the Queen too?
Thank you...

The invites are sent to the the royal families and probably not to the persons. Then it is decided among the family who attends and who doesn't. since Mary is on maternity leave, she cannot come. As to F&L; rumour has it that Charles personally asked them to come. But it might also be that Felipe is substituting for his father and Letizia is accompanying him with the Queen.

What i also have noticed is the fact that the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi IS invited, while the Maktoum family is NOT invited. I thought they would be, since i know the relationship between the Queen and Mohammed is relatively good.... hmmm

Dazzling, I like your avatar. Was there another official photograph released besides the two by Mario Testino that I didn't know about?

I think we can presume the invitation included both the Queen and Prince Consort but that he decided to not attend.

I think this was taken in November along with the other official pictures.
This picture was released in the official wedding program book

The long and the short of it is we are not privy to the full list of those who were invited. People may have been invited, but declined for one reason or another.
