King of Cambodia snubs Wills and Kate’s wedding

No reply ... King Norodom SihamoniPRINCE William and his fiancée Kate have been sensationally snubbed by the
King of Cambodia.

King Norodom Sihamoni has not replied to the couple’s wedding invitation.

He is the only Royal out of dozens worldwide who has failed to respond.

Sihamoni, 57, a shaven-headed former ballet dancer and instructor, is not the
first Cambodian king to snub a British royal wedding. 

In 1963 his dad Sihanouk refused to attend Princess Alexandra’s wedding after
being told he would not get a guard of honour and could not stay at Windsor

Sihamoni, who took the throne in 2004, lived under house arrest with his dad
in the 1970s while the Khmer Rouge regime murdered 1.5 million Cambodians.

Who’s who of the I do


IT’S the biggest social event for 30 years – and The Sun can today name
hundreds of the top guests due to attend next week’s glittering Royal

We’ve seen the secret list of the great and good lucky enough to have bagged
themselves an invitation to Friday’s grand event.

It includes 388 close friends and associates invited by groom Prince William,
28, and his bride-to-be Kate Middleton.

Among them are Posh and Becks, Rowan Atkinson, toff TV presenter Ben Fogle,
rugby supremo Sir Clive Woodward and Lock Stock director Guy Ritchie. 

Also listed are 254 relatives and friends of the Middleton family – including
Kate’s infamous uncle Gary Goldsmith and Reading FC chairman John Madejski.

The Queen and Prince Charles have drafted a list of 255 VIPs and aristocrats –
including 62 foreign Royals and heads of state. A further 1,000 guests,
including politicians, senior civil servants and foreign diplomats, received
invites via the Lord Chamberlain’s Office.

Many guests’ names are printed on this page. The list also reveals Kate, 29,
has invited her favourite fashion designer to Westminster Abbey – the
strongest hint yet to the identity of her mystery dress-maker.

Meanwhile the list confirms best man Prince Harry’s on-off girlfriend Chelsy
Davy HAS been invited, suggesting they have patched things up.

The Queen’s formal consent to the marriage was unveiled yesterday. Her Majesty

and the clarity” to live out their marriage “in the full glare” of the
public eye.
