Royal Wedding guest list revealed

Around 1,900 guests had been invited to the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton on 29 April.
The invitation to the much-awaited event was released by the Clarence House—the official residence of The Prince of Wales, Sky News said.
Highlighting that this is a modern day Royal Wedding, the invitation said, "Individuals listed above who are married or in civil partnerships have been invited with their spouse or partner."
An afternoon reception will be hosted by HRH Queen Elizabeth II on next Friday's nuptials.
I did not expect to be one of the guests in the royal event, which, incidentally, will happen on the same day as my elder brother's 45th birthday but I will be one of the billions of people who will eagerly watch in the comfort of my home thousands of kilometers away from London—the Philippines.
So let's see who made it to the list of this exciting event, which, by the way, is not a state affair. So don't expect to see world leaders to grace the occasion unless they are royals, too.
Oh, this reminds me of the Prince Charles and Princess Diana's Royal Wedding on 29 July 1981.
Rowan Atkinson AKA Mr. Bean, footballer Sir Trevor David Brooking and film maker Guy Stuart Ritchie were invited.
So were Welsh rugby player Gareth Thomas, Australian Olympic swimmer Ian James 'Thorpedo' Thorpe and singer Joss Stone invited.
Sir Elton John and David and Victoria Beckham had already confirmed their attendance.
The Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson will not attend but the Duke of York and their daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie will attend.
Royal families from abroad were invited: The Crown Prince of Bahrain, the Sultan of Brunei as well as the Emir of the State of Qatar.
Dignitaries from Commonwealth countries were sent invitations such as Australia's and New Zealand's prime ministers. The British prime minister was invited also.
Church representatives and other religions and members of the Defence Services were invited also. This includes Lance Corporal Martyn Compton of the Household Cavalry Regiment.
Bryn and Emma Parry who founded Help For Heroes charity were given invitation also.

How about the royal couple of Japan. Are they not invited?
