Thousands of miles away in the city of Mumbai, India, the ever-present dabbawalas, the food delivery person, are all set to rejoice the special day in their special manner. The reason, during his trip to India in the year 2003, Prince Charles, dad of Prince Harry, paid a special visit to the dabbawalas and they instantly turned friends.

Earlier during the year 2005 in addition, when the Prince of Wales and his long-time lady love Camilla Parker tied the nuptial knot, the dabbawalas presented Camilla Parker a nine-yard saree as well as a Maharashtrian turban to the Prince of Wales on the threshold of their marriage.

The elated Mumbai Dabbawalas will distribute sweets to patients on the marriage day.

While talking to media people, Subhash Talekar, Dabbawala Association representative, stated, "The dabbawalas of Mumbai are all set to celebrate the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on May 19."

"We'll distribute sweets along with tiffins. We'll even send the bride and groom the traditional Maharashtrian wedding dress," he added.

In fact, the dabbawalas also spoke over their curiosity to become a part of the royal event, limited to the who's who of the globe's influential males and females, if they too get an invitation.

"Prince Charles is friend. If there's wedding at his home, it's wedding at our home. If we are invited, two of us will go there. When we met Prince Charles he turned us into management gurus," added Talekar.

Astonished by their loyalty, uphill struggle and interest to details as daily millions of lunchboxes of Mumbaikars arrive at their workplace desks in good time, thanks to the dabbawalas, Prince Charles named dhoti, kurta and Gandhi cap-clad males as "management gurus".
