Ivanka Trump slammed for ‘fishing’ for royal wedding invite

It’s the exclusive guest list every dignitary wants to be on, but when it comes to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding next May, Ivanka Trump’s name isn’t the first that springs to mind.

Which is why the Twitterverse were somewhat taken aback when Donald Trump’s daughter gave a very public shout out to the engaged couple – weeks after their good news was announced in late November.

“Wishing Meghan and Prince Harry a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness together,” Ivanka tweeted last week.

Ivanka’s well wishes were soon the target of online trolls, who accused the POTUS’ daughter of trying to lock in an invite to the couple’s wedding next May, at St George’s Chapel.

While Prince Harry famously met Ivanka’s mother-in-law, Melania in Toronto while hosting the Invictus Games in September, there’s no word on whether he’s met with Ivanka.
