TRADITIONALLY, most brides and grooms will only invite their nearest and dearest to their wedding ceremony before having more mates come along to the reception in the evening.

But when you're a member of the Royal Family, this all gets turned on its head.

When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot in 2018, the couple had 600 guests there at St George's Chapel in Windsor with them before narrowing down the list to 200 for the evening party.

And according to royal biographers Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, one of Harry's oldest friends didn't get an invite to the reception – even though A-Listers George Clooney and Oprah Winfrey made the cut.

In their book Finding Freedom, the experts said that Prince Harry's friend Tom Inskip – known as "Skippy" – felt like he'd "lost a friend" following the wedding.

The experts claimed Tom had expressed concern over the speed in which Harry's new relationship was moving and suggested the couple live together before tying the knot.


Although the experts said Tom's comments "came from a good place", Prince Harry was reportedly "very hurt" and banned his old friend from the evening party.

They wrote: "Notable [absence from the reception was] Skippy, Harry's old friend, who had questioned the prince's relationship with Meghan, and his wife, Lara.

"They were invited to the wedding ceremony and lunchtime reception [hosted by The Queen] but didn't make the cut for the evening bash."

In their bombshell biography, the authors claim that Tom expressed his disappointment at brunch with mates the following day.

He is alleged to have told friends "Meghan has changed Harry too much" and concluded that "we've lost him".

Meanwhile, another former Eton school pal claimed that Harry was "awed by the likes of the Clooneys and Oprah."

The authors added: "Many of Harry's old friends said that the evening guest list was the prince and his bride's way of saying 'these are the people we want in our lives moving forward'."
