It appears as if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle do not want politics as a part of their special day!

“It has been decided that an official list of political leaders – both U.K. and international – is not required for Prince Harry and Ms. Markle’s wedding. Her Majesty’s Government was consulted on this decision, which was taken by The Royal Household,” a Kensington Palace spokesman said Tuesday.

And it is being reported that former *cries* President Barack Obama and former *cries again* First Lady Michelle Obama are not on that list as it is being reserved for long-standing friends they have known for years.

“Both the couples look forward to seeing each other soon,” adds a royal source to PEOPLE.
