Bizarre! A woman in India tried to sue ‘Prince Harry’ for not marrying her — but the courts aren’t buying it
- A woman in India tried to petition for legal action and get an arrest warrant issued against
Prince Harryfor promising to marry her and later backing out.
- According to Palwinder Kaur, the petitioner, she was even in touch with Prince Charles — Harry’s father — and had informed him of their pending nuptials.
- The High Court of Punjab and Haryana was sympathetic but not because Prince Harry walked out on Kaur, but because she probably got duped by an online scamster.
Kaur, the petitioner who argued her own case without a lawyer, attached the email correspondence between her and the prince in her petition. She told the court that she had even sent messages to Harry’s father, Prince Charles to inform him of the impending nuptials. But, only ever over social media. She has never met either individual in real life.
Nonetheless, Kaur was seeking legal action against Prince Harry and wanted the courts to put him behind bars.
AdvertisementRegrettably, the High Court of Punjab and Haryana wasn't buying what she was selling. “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,” it said in its ruling.
Prince Harry is no stranger to getting proposals. From a six-year old fan to an Australian girl who waited on the sidelines — many have tried and failed. But this is probably the first time someone tried to threaten him with arrest in order to marry him, that too when he’s already tied the knot.
You’ve been duped!
Even if the court wanted to take Kaur’s petition seriously, it wasn’t able to because the fundamentals were not in place to begin with.
According to Justice Arvind Singh Sangwan, the document itself was very poorly drafted. Not only were there grammatical errors but it lacked the most basic knowledge of leadings.
Moreover, even the emails that were filed were not the originals. Parts of the correspondence had been deleted or erased.
Having a fake ID on social media is not a new ruse. It’s almost as old as the concept of social networks — honey traps and cat fishing are only types of romance scams. And, in both cases, the person behind the keyboard does not have your best interests in mind.
“This Court finds no ground to entertain this petition and can only show its sympathy for the petitioner that she has believed such fake conversation to be true,” the ruling concluded.
