PRINCE William and his fiancée Kate have been sensationally snubbed by the King of Cambodia.
King Norodom Sihamoni has not replied to the couple's wedding invitation.
He is the only Royal out of dozens worldwide who has failed to respond.
Sihamoni, 57, a shaven-headed former ballet dancer and instructor, is not the first Cambodian king to snub a British royal wedding.
In 1963 his dad Sihanouk refused to attend Princess Alexandra's wedding after being told he would not get a guard of honour and could not stay at Windsor Castle.
Sihamoni, who took the throne in 2004, lived under house arrest with his dad in the 1970s while the Khmer Rouge regime murdered 1.5 million Cambodians.
