A Kuwaiti woman was shown in a YouTube film that went viral on regional social networks to appeal for Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, to help her marry a British taxi driver with whom she said was in love.
Salwah Al Mutairi, wearing the traditional Arabian abaya and head cover, said she was visiting London and got into a taxi and met the driver, called Khorsheed.
“I asked him if he is a Muslim and he said no but I am sure he is Muslim. I fell in love with this man. I want to marry him and have babies,” she said.
“I am ready to pay him KD100 (Dh1,300) a month forever and any sum for the marriage contract. I ask[ed] Prince William to help [me] find that driver so I [can] marry him.”
