The royal couple has not been invited to the wedding of Harry's lifelong friend, Hugo Grosvenor

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle have been excluded from the wedding of Prince Archie's godfather, according to reports.

The royal couple has not been invited to the wedding of Harry's lifelong friend, Hugo Grosvenor, the Duke of Westminster.

King Charles, Queen Consort Camilla, Prince William and Princess Catherine have all been invited to the bash which is taking place next summer.

The lack of invitation is just another sign the royal rift between the family runs far deeper among royal circles.

It comes as a particular blow for Prince Harry as Grosvenor is the godfather of his son, Prince Archie.

Hugo Grosvenor, 32 is marrying Olivia Henson 30 at Chester Cathdral on June 7.

According to the Times, Grosvenor has decided to exclude Harry and Meghan so not to create a clash with William and Charles.

It is believed William could be in the running to be best man.

It comes as the latest controversy erupted between the royal family and the Sussexes over the publication of Omid Scobie's latest book Endgame.

The book accuses both Charles and Kate, Princess of Wales of allegedly discussing Archie's skin tone before his birth.

It caused shockwaves across the country and around the world after the identities of the two royals were 'accidentally' printed in a Dutch version of the book and has fed the royal rift between the Duke of Sussex and his family.

Meghan Markle first alluded to the incident during her 2021 Oprah Winfrey interview, however, the Duchess chose not to name anyone at the time as it would be "damaging" to their reputation.

Despite Scobie denying responsibility for the naming row, one of the Dutch translators told The Mail that "the names of the royals were there in black and white" when she received the manuscript.

Relations between Harry and in particular his brother William have been particularly frosty since the book continues to attack the Princess of Wales calling her 'Keen Katie' and cold.

Buckingham Palace is yet to comment on any of Omid Scobie's claims from his new book, Endgame.
