On Thursday (April 8, 2021), Punjab and Haryana High Court dismissed a petition filed by Advocate-Petitioner, Palwinder Kaur. She claimed that Prince Harry, a resident of the United Kingdom, promised to marry her and did not fulfil the same.
Th matter was specifically taken up in the Court via physical hearing on her request, although the Court was supposed to function virtually. It was heard by a Single Judge Bench of Justice Arvind Singh Sangwan. After hearing Kaur’s arguments, the Bench called it nothing but “just a daydreamer’s fantasy about marrying Prince Harry.” The Judge noted that the petition was “very poorly drafted, both grammatically and lacking the knowledge of pleadings.” The Petitioner had presented some emails between her and allegedly Prince Harry, in which he promised to marry her. It might be interesting to note that when the Court questioned her about ever visiting the UK, she replied in the negative. However, she mentioned having conversations with the Prince on social media. She even stated sending messages to Prince Charles, father of Prince Harry, that his son was engaged to her. The Court observed that the printouts of the conversations she presented, were not true copies as some portions had been deleted or erased. Lastly, the Single-Judge Bench highlighted how a lot of fake IDs can be created on social media and their authenticity cannot be ascertained. He also sympathised with the Petitioner in the following words and thereby dismissed the petition.
“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," the Court stated.
It further added, "In view of the above, 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.” [READ ORDER]
