Since the engagement of the year was announced on Nov. 27, rumours of Meghan and Prince Harry’s wedding guest list have been swirling. And on Dec. 27 the prince, 33, addressed the subject on BBC Radio 4’s program Today, where he acted as guest editor and shared some laughs and tender moments with notable subjects, including his father, Prince Charles, and former U.S. president Barack Obama.

While Harry was asking most of the questions, the program wouldn’t have been complete without a question or two for Harry himself. The Radio 4 host asked him the hot question: Will the engaged pair be inviting the Obamas to the most highly-anticipated wedding of 2018?

“Well, I don’t know about that,” the royal said. “We haven’t put the invites or the guest list together ye,t so who knows whether he’s going to be invited or not. [I] wouldn’t want to ruin that surprise.” He did, however, open up about why his bond with the politician is so strong. “We share the same kind of mindset and outlook on the charitable sector, on foundations and mainly on the youth of today,” he said. “The young people of this world are incredibly inspirational.”

Although Harry refused to reveal any clues, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Barack and Michelle Obama sitting in the pews of St. George’s Chapel on May 19. Over the years, Harry and Barack have developed quite the friendship, through their mutual visits to each other’s home countries to the Invictus Games in Toronto to a variety of shared initiatives.
