The woman had filed a case claiming that Prince Harry proposed to her via e-mail. The case was closed after the judge ruled she wasn't talking to the real Prince Harry.
Some people have a crush on celebrities and think they're adorable, but they know where to draw the line and move on with their lives. However, some people are so obsessed that they tend to mix up reality with the scenarios in their heads, and eventually, it all just gets out of hand. Thanks to the internet, there's just so much information available online, and some people even fall prey to catfishing, where one person pretends to be another person. It could be someone they know or a celebrity. Recently, a poor woman from India had her heartbroken because of the Internet.
Palwinder Kaur, a lawyer, filed a petition with the Punjab and Haryana High Court, claiming that the former Duke of Sussex reached out to her via social media. After a long correspondence via emails, he proposed to her, reports Daily Star. Sadly, the woman failed to realize that she was being catfished. As a lawyer, she is smart enough, but the other person would have been really convincing to fool her. The scorned woman asked the court to issue an international arrest warrant to force the Prince into marrying her "without further delay" through her petition.

The petition filed against "Prince Harry Middleton" stated that the "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." After she'd filed her complaint, Justice Arvind Singh Sangwan questioned the woman in court. The woman told the judge that she had never seen Prince Harry or been to the UK.

Then, she claimed that her only medium of communication with him was through the internet. So they've never spoken over the phone, either. She also informed the judge that she contacted Prince Harry's father before filing the case against him. Yes, that's right, Kaur reached out to Prince Charles and told him about her engagement with Harry. She also addressed that Harry was not keeping up with the promise. At the end of the hearing, Kaur's case was dismissed. The court claimed that the woman was unable to prove she was talking to the real Prince Harry.
She is convinced the emails she's been receiving are actually and factually from the Duke of Sussex himself, and cannot be persuaded otherwise.— Rose (@mentalcasemama) April 20, 2021
Justice Sangwan said, "It is a 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," according to news.com.au. He further explained, "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."

He added, "There is every possibility that the so-called Prince Harry may be sitting in a cybercafe of a village in Punjab, looking for greener pastures for himself." One can only imagine the pain and grief the woman must be going through, despite this being a rather funny situation. Imagine how she'd be feeling, knowing that she fell for someone who pretended to be someone else. She was fooled and had her heartbroken at the same time. It definitely mustn't be easy for her. But, this is also a warning that we need to be extra cautious before trusting someone and letting them into our lives, especially if we meet them online.
