We all know Prince Harry is happily married to Meghan Markle with whom he’s expecting his second child.

And yet, woman in India is reportedly suing the Duke of Sussex for not honouring a promise he made to marry her.

If it sounds totally outlandish that’s because it is. Lawyers believe Palwinder Kaur was catfished by someone pretending to be him.

Kaur is convinced that she’s been exchanging emails with the sixth in line to the British throne, but Punjab and Haryana High Court are leaning towards a scammer working from a cyber café somewhere within the country.

The poor woman has even attempted to file an arrest warrant so that she and Harry can get married immediately.

As if that wasn’t enough, Kaur has also allededly sent messages to Prince Charles to inform him about the upcoming nuptials.

A case document reads: “Prayer in this petition filed by the petitioner, who is an advocate is appearing in person, is to take legal action against Prince Harry Middleton son of Prince Charles Middleton resident of the United Kingdom and to direct the United Kingdom Police Cell to take action against him, as, despite a promise to marry the petitioner, the said promise has not been fulfilled.”

Just a footnote: did no one tell her that “Middleton” is not their surname?

Naturally, Kaur’s plea was dismissed by Justice Arvind Singh Sangwan.

“This petition is nothing, but just a daydreamer’s fantasy about marrying Prince Harry,” the judge said.

He also criticised the petition for being “poorly drafted” and littered with linguistic errors.

The court also noted that, due to the plethora of fake profiles that exist across social media, the “authenticity of such conversations cannot be relied upon by this court. “

"The woman was so blind in love that the high court had to put some light into it and give her some clarity."
