Barack Obama celebrated his 60th birthday last weekend, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were not in attendance perhaps because their friendship is cooling off.
The Obamas are also close with Prince William and Kate Middleton, and it seems like the politician and his wife didn't want to choose sides.
"I’m sure that if they say we can only deal with one brother and his wife — you cannot have both because they are so far apart now — they will go towards William," royal expert Angela Levin claimed. "The Obamas clearly always regarded Harry highly, but I am sure they can see through Meghan. They may stay around, but they won’t be as pally as they once were."
The former president condensed the party size due to the new coronavirus variant spreading, but "Harry and Meghan were never even on the original list," Levin claimed.
Royal expert Camilla Tominey believes the Obamas didn't want the former actress, 40, and Harry, 36, at the event since they spoke poorly about the royal family several times.
"So, it arguably will not have gone down particularly well with a couple that have always put 'family first' to see Harry and Meghan being so openly critical of their royal relatives during their Oprah interview in March," she said.
“The Obamas didn’t like Harry attacking his family. They value family and certainly aren’t the type of people who would want their children talking to the press," a source also claimed.
Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen and George and Amal Clooney were all spotted at the glitzy affair, and according to Levin, Meghan was upset at the snub.
"I am told that despite claiming she was unable to attend, Meghan desperately wanted to be the special guest at the Obama’s amazing party," the author said.
