Foreign troops join Russia's Victory Day Parade

News article here about the 65th Victory Day in which troops from Britain, Poland, France and the US march. No major leader came from the UK however - Prince Charles' offer to go was turned down without reason. Anyone got any guesses as to why he might not be welcome?
