Despite practically being family, the Duchess of Cambridge’s little sister has reportedly been left off the invite list for Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding reception next Saturday.
The apparent move is all the more strange given that both Harry and his then relatively new girlfriend Meghan both scored an invite to Pippa’s own wedding to hedge fund manager James Matthews last May,The Mail reports.
Insiders say his ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy will also miss out on the evening soiree at Frogmore House – despite years of history between herself and first love Harry.
Instead, both she and Pippa will be sent home after the formal nuptials take place in Windsor Castle.
The unexpected snub is said to have caused considerable ‘hurt’ given the pair has remained friends since splitting in 2011.
“Chelsy is the queen of night-time parties. She’s wild and fun, and no evening bash is really complete without her, so friends are surprised she hasn’t been invited,” a source told the Mail on Sunday.
“Chelsy is surprised too, shocked in fact, and a little hurt.”
Meanwhile, no reason has been given as to why Pippa – who displayed an obvious chemistry with Harry at Kate and William’s 2011 wedding – has been left off the list. Especially as Harry and Meghan were guests at hers.
