Did Prince Charles ensure that Lady Amelia Windsor, Britain's "hottest royal", wasn't invited to the royal wedding?
Lady Amelia, who is 37th in line for the throne and quite closely related to Prince Harry, has still not received an invite to the highly anticipated wedding on May 19
Like father, like son. Just like Prince Charles snubbed Fergie by not inviting her to his son's wedding reception, Prince Harry too has washed his hand off of his second cousin Lady Amelia Windsor by not inviting her or her sister Marina to his wedding this week.
According to reports, Lady Amelia, who is the 37th in line for the throne and quite closely related to Prince Harry, has still not received an invite to the highly anticipated wedding which takes place on May 19.
A friend of the 22-year-old told the Sun, "They were a little surprised not to be invited as they were looking forward to going. Amelia is creating quite a name for herself with her modeling and Instagram posts. Perhaps Harry just wanted to keep the family invited to a small number or maybe he didn't want anyone upstaging the bride."
The University of Edinburgh student, who studies French and Italian at school, has been making major waves in the fashion world and has been dubbed the “most beautiful royal” multiple times by various fashion magazines around the globe, including Tatler in 2016.
The young royal has gained quite a reputation in the past couple of years, especially since she was seen walking for Dolce & Gabbana, and sitting in the front row at the Paris Fashion Week. She is represented by Storm modelling agency, the same firm that discovered Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne.
Although it is frowned upon for the royal family members to be active on social media using personal accounts, Lady Amelia also has managed to garner an incredible social media following on Twitter and Instagram and boasts of over 30,000 followers on her Instagram account.
Lady Amelia is not the only royal who has been snubbed over the super-exclusive guest list for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding. It was earlier reported that despite Prince Harry's wishes, his aunt Sarah Ferguson was uninvited from the evening reception hosted by the groom's father, Prince Charles.
"Numbers are limited to the evening party, she is not a member of the Royal Family anymore and Prince Charles simply doesn’t have time for her," a source says. "He just can’t see why she is still such a big part of his brother’s life."
The extremely hush-hush party, which has only 250 guests attending, will see Prince Andrew and his daughters Princess Eugenie and Beatrice making an appearance. However, Ferguson has been kept off the list by Prince Charles due to his personal differences with his brother's ex-wife.
The feud between Fergie and the British royal family goes way back, since both Prince Philip and Prince Charles consider her to be an embarrassment to the royal family. This is because she was allegedly caught with her financial advisor while he was sucking on her toes, at a time when she was still married to Andrew.
"It will be fascinating to see if the Duke of Edinburgh acknowledges her," the source says. "He has held a grudge against her for a long, long time and normally refuses to even be in the same room as her."
