(Newser) – With just three days left before the royal wedding, the inevitable complaints of guest list snubs are coming to the surface. News came out over the weekend that the last two British prime ministers weren't invited, and now the New York Times notes that some of Princess Diana's close friends were also excluded. Some have speculated that Prince Charles's second wife, Camilla, vetoed any potential guests who may have been on Diana's side in the divorce, but palace officials insist that a lack of space is to blame.

“This is essentially a personal wedding, albeit with enormous public attention,” says a spokesperson for Prince Charles. Somebody might want to mention that to Lily Allen: The Mirror notes that the English musician is peeved that she was left off the list while fellow musician Joss Stone was included. "well, you can quote me as 'outraged', why does bloody Joss Stone get an invite and not moi? I sang at the Diana concert too!" she tweeted, later adding that Stone is "a stoner." Of course, she later noted that she was "being sarcastic."

Why does the media keep trying to make us care about this stupid wedding? Leave us alone, already.
