The Royal Guest List Leans Right

The guest list of the royal wedding hints of a bias in favor of conservative prime ministers over liberals.

Invited to see Kate and Wills wed:

Conservative former prime ministers Margaret Thatcher and John Major. (Thatcher declined due to poor health.)

Snubbed from the nuptials:

Former prime ministers from the Labor Party, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. Recall that Blair referred to Bill Clinton as his "political soulmate."
