Okay, then it's her opinion. Not a fact. I don't see anyone in the Royal Family telling something like that to a magazine editor, either.

How much of a role did Dian's friends play in William's life after Diana died? Just because they were friends of Diana does not mean an automatic invite to William's, or Harry's when the time come, wedding. Is it truly a snub on Camila's part, we'll never know. Not going to lose any sleep over it.

But Carolyn Bartholomew, Diana's friend and Harry's godmother, was invited?

The wedding was all about Will and Kate, their families and their friends and close associates of their patronages and people that meant something to the bridal couple. HM and Charles and Camilla were given spots for whom they'd like to invite and I think it would have run to who they most felt they would like to share the joy of the wedding day with. The final decision on who was cut or not was probably up to Will and Kate themselves.

If you go by the thought that Camilla cut anyone that dated back to the trouble period in Diana and Charles' marriage, Tom Pettifer, the son of Tiggy Legge-Burke and godson of Charles would not have had a place in the bridal party. IIRC, Diana didn't care for Tiggy much.

We had quite a few reports of people wanting to go to the wedding and not invited (Michelle Obama, perhaps Sarah Ferguson) and some that felt slighted they only went to the ceremony (Victoria Beckham) but truth be told, I think Kate felt closer to her local postman, butcher and pub owner and wanted them there.

Guest lists can really fill up fast and get out of hand especially with such a well known couple as Will and Kate.

The Cambridges invited who they wanted to invite. It was pretty much made known that the wedding wasn't a state wedding so Mrs Obama wasn't invited.

I don't think Camilla had much influence over the guest list.

AFAIK, Tom is a godson of William, not Charles.

Reportedly yes, Tom was pageboy at the wedding.

You are absolutely right and I stand corrected. Thanks!

Remember the interview after the wedding, and William stated the first meeting post engagement announcement he walked in and courtiers handed him a list with 777 names on it and this was just the list of people that 'should' be there and William said he didn't know any of the people.

That's when William famously rang his granny and asked "Is this really how it must be?"
The Queen laughed and told him to bin the list and start with the couple's friends and go from there

William and Catherine had pretty much full control over their wedding guest list, at least in my opinion.

I remember it being said that Princess Beatrice's boyfriend, Dave Clarke didn't attend the royal wedding but I just looked at the coverage of the wedding again and Dave did attend the wedding. He arrived with Holly Branson.
