Have you heard if any royals from Jordan are attending the wedding?

The official list shows no members of the Jordanian royal family. The King and Queen were invited (no one else), and there were reports, they were coming, but it now seems that they are not. Perhaps this is due to the political issues facing the country.

Marlene how about The Prince of Hanover? Would you think he would have gotten an invite? There's some family connection, plus his (albeit shaky) marriage to an heiress presumptive of a reigning House. Perhaps he's too controversial.

Marlene Eilers Koenig said...

I doubt EA would have gotten an invite. His family was not invited to Charles' wedding, nor was there someone from the British royal house at his wedding(s) ..There are no close ties.

Ernst Ausgust was quite prominently seated at the Golden Wedding celebration in 1997 though (before his marriage to Caroline) - not sure why that was and Edward attended the funeral of his late father too. Apart from that no real ties other than E-A's uncle Georg-Wilhelm was married to Philip's late sister Sophie.
