On August 4, the Obama couple held a party to celebrate the 60th birthday of the former US president. According to a royal expert, the Sussex couple may not have been invited after their pronounced attacks on the British royal family.
On August 4, Barack Obama celebrated his 60th birthday. After having planned to put the small dishes in the big, the former president of the United States and his wife, Michelle Obama, had finally decided to revise their requirements downwards, health crisis obliges. Saturday, August 7, the couple finally organized a sumptuous but intimate party in his property of Martha’s Vineyard, in Massachusetts. For the occasion, Barack and Michelle Obama had invited a whole host of guests … but Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle were not present.
The former presidential couple and the Royal couple would have very good relations, so much so that some experts wonder if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would not aim at the White House. Only we can wonder why the Sussex couple was not at the birthday party of the former U.S. president. According to royal expert Camilla Tominey, their absence could be due to the fact that Barack Obama and the former First Lady would not approve of Prince Harry‘s attacks pronounced against the royal family, during their explosive interview given to Oprah Winfrey. “It certainly wouldn’t have gone down well between a couple who have always put family first, and a couple who are so openly critical of members of their own royal family,” she told The Telegraph, reports The Mirror.
Family, a priority for the Obama couple
According to Camilla Tominey, the Obama couple would swear by the expression “the voice of blood is the strongest”. A source told the royal expert: “The Obamas did not like Harry to attack his own family. For them, family is important, and they’re certainly not the kind of people who would want their children talking to the press.” One thing is for sure, 5,000 miles away from Barack Obama’s party on Wednesday, August 4, Meghan Markle was hosting her own 40th birthday festivities. In a country atmosphere in their Montecito mansion, the Sussex couple welcomed 65 guests, around a buffet with locally sourced food and wine.
Why Obama’s crazy birthday party is being debated
Former President Barack Obama celebrated his 60th birthday in style this Saturday, August 7. But this birthday full of stars did not make the unanimity in full epidemic of Covid.
Barack Obama belongs to the very closed circle of the personalities who make the unanimity, that it is with his crazy class or his sense of the formula. However, the one who was born on August 4th and celebrated his 60th birthday this Saturday, August 7th, found himself under the fire of the critics. Indeed, when he announced a big party to celebrate this fateful age, many Internet users considered it unconscionable to organize a large-scale event while the epidemic of Covid is still there and that the Delta variant is spreading at high speed.
Many believe he should have cancelled his birthday as a precaution. On Twitter, Republicans in particular have taken to the streets. Republican Party Leader Ronna McDaniel said, “Is there an exception for parties attended by rich liberal celebrities?” The former president backed down at the time, referring to a party where only friends and family would attend.
Beyoncé and Bruce Springsteen among the guests
Except that on August 7, at a beautiful property in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, things did not really happen that way. About 200 guests were present, instead of 500 according to the first idea of the former president. And among the guests, many stars were present such as Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Bradley Cooper, Erykah Badu, Gabrielle Union or Bruce Springsteen.
According to the celebrity website TMZ, John Legend and Alicia Keys wished him a happy birthday by singing. TMZ also notes that the neighbors near the place of the party would not have been delighted with the comings and goings of the guests. According to the media People, this did not prevent the former president from dancing all night.
