Will Trump Be Trumped at Royal Wedding in May

William and Kate are expecting their third child in April while Harry and Meghan are getting married in May
With all the pomp and circumstance at Windsor Castle Cathedral a royal wedding will display
Meghan like Kate must have swept the English people off their feet
Likewise too a queen who has offered her at the Royal Christmas dinner a seat
History will repeat itself in Churchillean tones
Any royal offspring will follow Winston with a U.S. mother with a father closer to the throne
Like weddings everywhere and why so many millennials elect to elope
 William and Meghan have to navigate the wedding list slippery slope
Here cost is no expense but this wedding is more than vows exchanged—it is an affair of state
Already on the wedding list lottery a bit of protocol will soon await
Harry and Meghan want to invite Barack and Michele
But not Trump which might be viewed as a snub hard to dispel
Not sure what the palace head of protocol at the Palace would say
Or whether an invitation to Trump and Melania might be the order of the day
Only that statecraft when it comes to wedding should never come into play
Love should always trump statecraft and never let protocol get in the way
