Maharani Meenu, on how she met the Raja of her dreams, Dal:
"My husband and I were in a long distance relationship for about a year before we got engaged. My husband is good friends with my friend’s husband. They were all at a wedding in England where he was introduced to my friend. The following day, my friend phoned me up and asked me if I was still single. She told me that I should talk to this guy and told me how perfect he was for me as he was tall, and had a great personality. I was reluctant at first; however, I said he could add me on Facebook and we would take it from there. My husband sent me a message on Facebook in August 2012 and we continued to talk for about 6 months before we met each other. We started chatting on Facebook, then through WhatsApp, on the phone and Skype. He booked his ticket to visit Canada for the first time and was to arrive in April 2013; however, I planned a trip to India in February of that year and had a stopover in England for 5 hours. My husband booked out a VIP lounge in London Heathrow where we met for the first time."
On Raja Dal's romantic marriage proposal:
"I introduced my husband to my parents in January 2014 and they absolutely loved him. When Dal returned to England he also told his parents about me. I spoke to my in laws for the first time; my parents then also spoke to both my mother- in-law and my father-in-law and they had a great conversation and really hit it off. My family and I traveled to England in April of that year for my engagement party. Prior to the engagement my husband took me out for high tea at a beautiful place, Hogarths. We went for a stroll on the trail through Hogarths as we were waiting for our table. My husband went down on one knee and proposed. It was such an amazing moment; he also hired a photographer who was hidden and managed to capture pictures of the proposal."
