London: The much awaited event of Prince William and Kate Middleton's marriage has another story about the Invitations. The invitations for marriage have reportedly caused domestic strife in some of Britain's households as hundreds of guests have been barred from bringing their spouses to the event.
 
A friend of one of the guests said, "It is a nightmare. His wife was absolutely thrilled when the invitation fell on to the doormat, but she couldn't believe it when it made no mention of her.”

The guest is a Lord Lieutenant, one of the British Queen's personal representatives around the country.

The guest's friend said, “What makes it worse is that he's not really bothered about going to London and would be happy to watch it on TV. It is his wife who's desperate to be there. She had already bought her hat. He's checked and the invitations are non-transferable.”

In fact, most of the Lord Lieutenants, many of whom have close links to the Royal family, have been barred from bringing their spouses to the marriage on April 29, a newspaper said.

However, St James' Palace has declined to comment on the matter.
