The Punjab and Haryana High Court Tuesday nipped in the bud a petition that sought legal action against Prince Harry of United Kingdom for allegedly not marrying a woman advocate despite “being in an an online relationship with her”.
The court dismissed the petition by the woman, who is also an advocate, terming it as nothing “but a daydreamer’s fantasy” and added that the “Prince Harry,” with whom the woman exchanged emails was likely operating out of a cyber cafe of a village in the Punjab, “looking for green pastures for himself.”.
Palwinder Kaur, the petitioner who argued her own case, had moved the high court seeking action against Prince Harry for allegedly not fulfilling the promise to marry her. The plea also sought directions to United Kingdom Police Cell to take action against Prince Harry. It also prayed that arrest warrants be issued against him so that no further delay occurs in their marriage.
As per reports she had attached copies of the emails that she had exchanged with Prince Harry, who is married to Meghan Markle.
The single bench of Justice Arvind Singh Sangwan, after hearing the plea, said, “I find that this petition is nothing, but just a daydreamer’s fantasy about marrying Prince Harry. This petition, though very poorly drafted, both grammatically and lacking the knowledge of pleadings, speaks about some emails between the petitioner and Prince Harry, in which the person, sending the email, has stated that he promise to marry soon.”
On being enquired by the bench if the petitioner has ever travelled to the United Kingdom, she said that she only had conversations through social media. She had also sent messages to Prince Charles that his son is engaged with her.
“It is well-known fact that fake IDs are created on various social media sites like Facebook, Twitter etc. and authenticity of such conversation cannot be relied upon by this Court. There is every possibility that so-called Prince Harry may be sitting in a cyber cafe of a village in Punjab, looking for greener pastures for himself,” said Justice Sangwan.
Finding no ground to entertain the petition and saying that the court can only show its sympathy for the petitioner that she has believed such fake conversation to be true, Justice Sangwan dismissed the plea.
