However, the Duke of Sussex and his wife Meghan Markle welcomed their second child, daughter Lilibet, just last month.

And getting a flight from California to Italy might be too far for them to travel with a newborn and their two-year-old son Archie.

In addition, the couple are currently on parental leave following the birth of their daughter.

Meanwhile, reports claimed that William and wife Kate Middleton would be attending the wedding.

However, they were not among the guests at the weekend.

It’s unclear why the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge didn’t attend, but reports suggest the COVID-19 pandemic and travel rules may have played a part.

Meanwhile, the couple may have work commitments which travel and quarantine rules could impact.

ED! has contacted reps for Kensington Palace and Meghan and Harry for comment.
