The Royal Wedding is the talk of the town this week, and the Trump’s just added to the buzz.
In lieu of a gift, the Trump’s will be donating to a designated charity in the name of the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
No Gifts… Please
It is customary for world leaders to send a gift when a family member of another leader is being wed.
This is a tradition that goes back centuries.
So, it was not exactly shocking to hear the Trumps would be giving a gift, even if they were not actually attending the event.
What was shocking is what the gift was — nothing.
The new royal couple, not wanting to be showered with gifts from around the world, actually made a classy move by asking for donations to the following charities instead of gifts:
Children’s HIV Association
The Myna Mahila Foundation
Scotty’s Little Soldiers
Surfers Against Sewage
Wilderness Foundation UK
Not a State Event
While the media is making much ado about the Trump’s not receiving an invitation, it really is no big deal.
You see, Harry’s wedding is NOT a state event, so foreign heads of state are NOT required to be invited.
As a matter of fact, after much speculation the Obama’s would be on the guest list, the liberal media was shocked that an invitation was not sent to them, either.
They will have to see the wedding just like the rest of us… from our couch.
