Ladies and gentlemen…the power of social media!

93-year-old Boman Kohinoor is the owner of the iconic ‘Britannia & Company’ restaurant in Mumbai and has always been a huge fan of the British Royal Family. In fact he has a large framed photograph of Queen Elizabeth II that hangs in his restaurant AND he even got a letter from Buckingham Palace.

We learned of Boman’s love for the royals when he was featured in a video made by Conde Nast Travellor India where he expressed his desire to meet Prince William and Kate during the couple’s first visit to India.


Well the good folks over at Conde Nast Travellor decided to help him spread the word by encouraging their viewers and readers to help Boman’s dream come true by spreading the message using the hashtag #WillKateMeetMe.

The universe listened! People began retweeting and posting about Boman’s dream and it somehow reached the royal couple!


Yes, Boman got to make his dream come true and he ACTUALLY William and Kate! The meeting happened on April 10, their first day in India, at the Taj Palace Hotel.

“I met Their Royal Highnessess this evening at the Taj. They were kind and asked me about my restaurant and my favourite dishes there,” he told media after the meeting.

A dream coming true!

A dream coming true!

Pretty cool eh? Just shows you that where there is a will, there is a way!
