The royal wedding is set to take place on May 19th, in just over a month and we’re now beginning to get some idea of who was and wasn’t invited to what will surely be remembered as the wedding of the year.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, no invite, American President Donald Trump, not invited, former President Barack Obama, not invited, and the couple didn’t even invite the Prime Minister of Britain Theresa May. Can you imagine being able to snub Presidents and Prime Ministers who probably thought they were getting an invitation?
But one lucky Canadian teen did managed to score herself an official wedding invite.
#ICYMI seven of the incredible young people we work with have been invited to the #RoyalWedding next month!— The Diana Award (@DianaAward) April 10, 2018
One of them is Faith, who received her Legacy Award from HRH Prince Harry almost exactly a year ago.

Faith Dickerson from Peterborough Ont. has been invited to attend the ceremony of the year.
So it begs the question of why her and not all those other people you would have expected to be on the royal guest list?
Dickerson is only 15-years-old but she is the founder of a non-profit organization called Cuddles for Cancer which makes blankets for cancer patients and former soldiers who are living with PTSD.
Last year Dickerson won The Diana Award - named for the late princess who was Prince Harry’s mother – for her hard work.
The teen is obviously thrilled with the invitation and took to twitter to express her joy of being one of the lucky people who has been invited.
The royals obviously decided that they wanted to invite people who were committed to making the world a better place through philanthropy rather than just inviting someone simply because of formal political titles.
Dickerson seems as good a choice as you can get here.
