Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement a while back. 

As the news broke, it didn’t take long for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to become #CoupleGoals. A Royal Wedding to look forward to is pretty exciting, after all.

However, Pakistani Twitter soon highlighted that there’s a very important message to take away from this recent royal engagement. And this important message has a lot to do with our desi shaadis and the entire rishta process.

Twitter user, Bissmah Mehmud, pointed out some facts that needed to be focused on. 

Let’s face it, we all know a Mrs. Rajput and a Billu in our inner circles.

She even went on to clarify certain aspects of her tweet.

And capped it off with a message for haters.

Other Pakistanis stepped in to appreciate the message and said they wanted to share it.

Some pointed out certain qualifications that had been missed.

Others added their two cents as well.

However, some pondered over how Billu would eventually find that “perfect” wife…

…which obviously isn’t fair at all.

In all seriousness, it’s important to remember just why this Royal Shaadi is highly significant for our society. It’s definitely a step forward in terms of tackling the typical rishta mindset that is still prevalent. It challenges that very thinking by setting a concrete example of acceptance.

Meghan is also living proof of the fact that an elder, divorced, working woman can marry whoever she wants and have her fairytale ending.

The narrative does not and should not change with age, race or one’s personal and professional backgrounds.
