Donald Trump 'not aware' of any royal wedding invite


Donald Trump has said he is not aware of any invitation to attend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.


Asked whether he had received an invite for the 19 May wedding, the US president said "not that I know of".


American actress Ms Markle was a Hillary Clinton supporter in the 2016 US election, and has referred to Mr Trump as "divisive" and a "misogynist".


In an interview with Piers Morgan for ITV, Mr Trump said Prince Harry and Ms Markle looked "like a lovely couple".


When asked if he would like to attend the wedding at Windsor Castle, the president said: "I want them to be happy, I really want them to be happy.


"They look like a lovely couple."


Prince Harry and Ms Markle will get married in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. It holds about 800 people, making it a more intimate setting than the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding in Westminster Abbey.


The interview with Morgan was conducted while the president attended the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where he also had a meeting with the UK prime minister.


Morgan tweeted that Mr Trump had told him he had been offered two visits to UK this year by Theresa May - a working visit in the summer and a state visit in the autumn.


But Downing Street has not confirmed the claim, reports BBC.
