Following the oh-so-perfect fairy-tale wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, our very own Pakistan International Airline (PIA) took to Twitter and invited the newly-wed couple to visit the northern areas in Pakistan using the famous airline.
Prince Harry and Meghan exchanged vows in front of 600 guests including the Queen, more than 30 royals and famous faces such as Oprah Winfrey, tennis champion Serena Williams, actor George Clooney, Amal Clooney, Sir Elton John, David and Victoria Beckham and actor Idris Elba on Saturday.
The national carrier attempted to take advantage of a delay in the royal couples honeymoon as they turned immediately to royal duties.
They are due to attend a charity garden party for Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday before flying out on their honeymoon.
Reminiscing about the time when Princess Diana visited the northern areas, the national carrier took to Twitter and posted a picture of Princess Diana during her visit and requested the royal couple to visit as well.
“We watched the #RoyalWeddding & remembered #PrincessDiana and her trip to the northern areas of Pakistan, and we thought how wonderful it would be for the newlyweds to visit our northern splendours as well! So #PrinceHarry & #PrincessMeghan, we are ready, just let us know when!” PIA tweeted.
Although some appreciated PIA’s tweet as a “nice gesture”, several criticised the airline and asked the royal couple to visit Pakistan but choose another carrier.
One person commented: ‘Have you seen the state of your company, ordinary folks don’t travel PIA and you expect royals to?’
While another person commented: ‘Oh my god not on the planes you provide to Joe public….stinking toilets….in flight entertainment non existent…..same old chicken biryani…..same old drinks…..and don’t forget the uncle ji with the smelly arm pits….oh yes welcome to Pakistan your highness….please remember to give some money for chaa paani….’
